Good culture is in the callused hand.
My name is Cody. I’m from Magoffin County in Eastern Kentucky. Right now I’m studying horticulture at Morehead State University in north eastern Kentucky. Farming goes back through my Family all the way back to the Cherokee. I’ve never lived on a profit based farm, but my family has raised vegetables and animals for food for many years. I’ve been growing organic vegetables for the past two years. Most of the stuff I grow is for my own consuming, but I do sell a few hot peppers to local Mexican restaurant. I hope to some day buy a farm were I spent part of my child hood, and start full scale commercial production then. My plan is to service restaurants and grocery stores within a fifty mile radius of the farm, and set up a road side stand in Salyersville, which is the county seat.
Aside from Agriculture I’m interested in forestry and medicinal plants. I spend most of my free time walking in the woods and studying the local plant life. I also like to fish, and coon hunt. I’m also involved with Appalachian based social and environmental groups who are trying to put and end to mountain top removal coal mining.
