WELCOME TO HANSEN'S HARVEST
Home Grown & Free To Roam
You can feel good about your purchases when you buy from us! Everything we sell is grown and produced on our 100 acre farm.
We grow, gather, cook, bottle, and label everything ourselves. When we say straight from the farm, we mean it!
Get to Know Us
We are located in Laurel County, KY. Retired from the Navy we moved to Kentucky, the most beautiful state in the country, to live our dream of farming. Along the adventurous road of learning to farm, we also came across an old Appalachian recipe for Hickory Syrup. We were blessed to have an abundance of Shagbark Hickory Trees and fell in love with the idea of bringing this old time syrup back. We’ve been making a name for ourselves in our little community with that syrup and we are truly grateful!
After a year or so of selling our syrups we decided to put our fresh garden herbs to use and from that idea came our Herb Infused Olive Oil. We've recently branched into Bourbon Vinegar, and Mushroom Extracts. Our mushroom are cultivated, not foraged, and only the best strains make it into our grow house. These are purely functional mushrooms focused on possible health benefits.
Just like cultural heritage and roots are important to us, so is the welfare, and lives, of the animals we raise. Our chickens, guinea, pigs, goats, and sheep are all free range, pecking and rooting through 100 acres of lush forest trees. Most of their diet comes from fresh grasses, acorns, hickory nuts, black walnuts, berries, and wild apples.
Along with our farm animals, we have 10 dogs (mostly rescues) 2 Cats, and 5 grown kids. Life can be crazy, hectic, funny, and wild on a farm, but we wouldn't have it any other way.
Made here on the farm from our Shagbark Hickory trees. This recipe is straight out of old Appalachian history! Connect with your ancestors and Kentucky's cultural roots, while marveling over how good it is! Sweet and versatile, with five different flavors to choose from, no wonder it's our best seller. Great on ice cream, pancakes, and bbq too!

Pasture raised Katahdin lamb. The Katahdin lamb is known for its high quality, naturally lean meat. It is a superior quality meat consistently offering a very mild flavor.
We sell lambs for your own stock or if you prefer we can raise them up for you.
Our next lambing season will be Feb 2024
HERITAGE TAMWORTH PIGS
We raise Heritage Breed Tamworth pigs both as breeding stock and feeders.
Their meat is known for its great taste, being a leaner pork, with a wonderful texture. They are the preferred pork by top chef's. "A Bristol University taste test, under scientifically controlled conditions, rated Tamworth meat as the best when compared with other rare breeds and commercial pork. " This is due to their natural propensity for foraging and body shape. Our pigs are free ranging, with the majority of their diet coming from Hickory nuts, Acorns, berries, and grasses. Small amounts of supplemental feed as needed.
For breeding they make wonderful mothers, are docile, loving pigs, with tons of comedic flare. If you are considering adding pigs to your farm we highly recommend the Tamworth.
2023: All our pork shares, gilts, and feeders have been sold.
What Visitors Are Saying About Us
My whole family loved all their syrups! Much better quality and flavor than anything you can buy in a store!
Recently had lamb from Hansen’s Harvest and can’t say enough about quality of the meat and the folks that run the farm. Price was right and farm raised makes all the difference. Delicious!
Love their syrups, goes great with pancakes! And I've never had mushrooms like theres before!
It’s truly the best syrup EVER!! I had never even heard of hickory syrup before. Now you have ruined me and I just don’t like maple syrup anymore I mean, I’ll eat it, but not if I have yours!!!
The quality of the lamb is first class. A family favorite for all occasions. The leg of lamb was almost prime rib like. I couldn't believe how good it was.
And Josh was easy to work with, ensuring a great product from his farm to our table.
We do not currently have any pigs available. We are expecting a litter in February 2023. If you'd like to be on the list for those please contact us!
