The restaurant and the hotel:
The Kentucky Castle has its own restaurant on site – Castle Farms. 90% of the produce served to guests is grown right there on the farm. In fact, the castle’s working farm grows as much of the food as possible right there on site. Their gardens include vegetable gardens, a mushroom farm, a truffle orchard, and lavender fields (watch for the lavender in front of the castle walls). They also have animals on the farm, everything from goats to horses to bees!
The castle does have a hotel – making it a GREAT spot for a weekend getaway!
The Kentucky Castle is approximately 90 miles from downtown Cincinnati. It is close to both Lexington and Frankfort. The Kentucky Capitol is located in Frankfort and well worth a visit!
