Note: BFM is a Grower Only Market. As such we require your Value Added Products to contain at least one ingredient grown on your farm. KY House Bill 391 requires home processed products to contain a primary or predominant ingredient that has been grown, harvested, and processed by the farmer to qualify for the program.

Two popular examples for eligible home processed products would be Zucchini Bread or Strawberry Jam - the zucchini or strawberry being the farm-grown ingredient.
