Kentucky Organic Program | Frankfort, KY
Certifying Agent | January, 2011 January, 2016

Mac farms with his wife, Ann Bell Stone, and extended family at Elmwood Stock Farm, their Scott County farm located in the Bluegrass Region of Kentucky. The family produces Certified Organic, beef, vegetables and small fruit, eggs, chicken, heritage turkeys and tobacco. On-farm composting and pasture rotation has helped to reduce off-farm inputs for the 550 acre operation. Primary markets include a CSA farm share program, farmers markets, local restaurants, and retail store accounts.

Mac was the Executive Director of Marketing for the Kentucky Department of Agriculture, administering the Kentucky Proud Program among many others. Mac recently retired from Kentucky State University, administering a grant program for small scale farmers in Kentucky. Now he focuses on farming and marketing wholesome organic foods for the family farm, and working with non-profit agriculture and food organizations.
