BENTON FARMS is a beautiful rolling 115 acre working farm located in Boone and Kenton county. Mr. Benton came to this farm in 1942 at 10 years old. Now it has reached the fifth generation. Mr. Benton of 81 yrs, his daughter and board of directors continues to oversee its operations. Since 1994 the farm started to host agritourism and invite schools and families out to pick pumpkins and visit with the animals. These visits to the farm allows visitors to see a real working farm operation. Over the last few years the educational experiences at the farm led to summer day camp and children desiring to have their birthday parties out on the farm. The farm continues to grow soybeans, wheat, corn, hay garden fresh vegetables and of course pumpkins. The farm now is open year round and a nonprofit 501c3 with BENTON FAMILY FARM Inc.
