A very unexpected addition to the Farm - Amazing Grace (Gracie) was born on May 6, 2003 to Brutus and Buffy (Buffalos). According to County Historian, William Turner, this is the first buffalo born in Christian County in over 200 years.
Amazing Acres Farm - Welcome. (Schedule your group/school farm tours.)
Down on the farm we are always busy. We have been raising burley and dark fired tobacco since 1978.
Amazing Acres has a Ky State licensed wildlife rehabilitator - Natalie. Over the years, Natalie has raised white tail deer, elk, raccoons, opossums, mink, skunks, squirrels, red fox and chipmunks. Some of the animals become a permanent part of the family due to human imprinting and injuries.
You will also see a variety of farm life such as rabbits, ducks, geese, peacocks, cats, dogs, silky chickens, aracauna chickens, miniature donkeys, pot bellied pig, ostrich and buffalo.
When touring the farm, keep in mind that the animals are still wildlife and will protect themselves when necessary. Even though licensed by the state, we do not receive any government funding to help feed or house the animals. Donations are always accepted and greatly appreciated.
