THE JERRYS FARM

Click here to purchase a photo

In 2003, Jerry Hicks and Jerry Neff started The Jerrys Farm, 2859 Three Mile Run Road in Fleming County. The farm is a new/old “green farm”, borrowing from many old farming techniques while incorporating many modern farming practices. They do all of their plowing and mowing using horse drawn equipment, but use a solar panel to power the water pumps. They raise hormone-free pasture-raised chickens and pasture-raised beef on their 150-acre farm. The farm is open for public tours and hands-on farm experiences.

    A small tractor(40 or so hp)would at least save 1/3 of the expense and wear on the ole back.Have you counted the expense of horse shoes and grain.Must have won the lotto so you can make ends meet!

    Jerry Hicks is my older brother and I am so proud of him. He and Jerry Neff have both struggled to get where they are today. They are not doing this to become rich. They are doing this because they love it. They didn’t win the lottery and if I am not mistaken they have other jobs to help make ends meet. I love them both and I am so proud of what they have accomplished.

    look how skinny these guys are compared to your average farmer!! I think there is an added benefit to farming with horses…less doctor bills!!!
