Bi-Water Farm & Greenhouse
A bucolic spot at the intersection of North Elkhorn Creek and Dry Run Creek…
Our parents, Carl A. and Bertha Fister, started Bi-Water Farm & Greenhouse in March of 1959, where alongside fresh produce, tobacco, hogs and corn, they raised their nine children.
In 1969, mom and dad purchased an additional 40 acres that was adjacent to our farm, which brought us to our current 184 acres. Over the years, our greenhouse operation slowly grew until we have reached approximately 4 acres of growing area, while the hogs and tobacco were phased out and are no longer part of the farm.
It was in 1995 that we started an endeavor that has changed the way we are seen to the public. We built our farm store where we are able to sell our fresh produce and flowers to the general public. This was a huge change for us, because until that time, all of our products were sold on the wholesale market, not retail. With the farm store, we also started our fall festival which we call AutumnFest. This festival has grown over the years and is now one of the largest fall farm festivals in Kentucky. We have 20 acres of pumpkins and fun activities for the family, including Bunnyville, Spooky Farmhouse, Lost Pumpkin Mine, hayrides, a corn maze, Sky High Slide, People Spinners and a lot more. Each fall we welcome families and school groups from all over Kentucky to experience the excitement.
In June of 2005, our dad died at the age of 82, and in February 2009 our mother died at the age of 84. Of their nine children, there are three sons left on the farm to carry on the horticulture heritage- Stephen, Chris and Len.
We, along with our spouses, take the responsibility of running Bi-Water seriously, and are doing everything possible to make this a fun and enjoyable task. We invite you for a visit to Bi-Water Farm to experience the fun and enjoy our farm with us.
