Rough Draft Farmstead began as the dream of two people–owners Jesse and Hannah–who decided that they wanted to live more simply. Jesse found a passion for naturally-produced wines in New York that led him back to Kentucky where he interned at Bugtussle Farms and met Hannah, a self-proclaimed “nomadic city girl” who decided to come back to her Kentucky roots to pursue her passion for food. Here at Bugtussle they fell in love with growing food and with the land and, of course, each other.

Fast forward two years later to now and Jesse and Hannah have their own farm, Rough Draft Farmstead, in Bugtussle, Kentucky where they continue to explore their passion for growing food and living simply.

Produce and Products:
Every Tuesday, Rough Draft Farmstead sets up shop at Community Farmer’s Market here in Bowling Green where they sell their produce and distribute [] to shareholders of their CSA. Currently, they’re selling summer vegetables like tomatoes, peppers, kale, summer squash, sweet potatoes, eggplant, lettuce and broccoli, but they also have occasional special items like honey and gorgeous flowers!

What They Want You To Know:
Everything that Rough Draft Farms makes and sells is chemical and pesticide free. They want people to know that the produce they sell is good to eat, completely natural and comes from a small, family-minded farm. Another goal that they have is to find biological answers to to pest problems and soil deficiencies.
