Michael Moore grew up in the pastures and tobacco fields of Harrodsburg, surrounded by stories of Shaker Village. Working The Farm at Shaker Village is a return to his roots of gardening and walking through fields with his grandfather. Mike is passionate about teaching sustainable farming methods, preserving the land and soil, and diversifying agriculture through a variety of methods. This has led to a broad skill set for Mike, including sheep shearing, beekeeping, managing orchards, raising a range of livestock including sheep and cattle and, of course, maintaining the Village’s historic vegetable garden!
