In the middle of Dayton, Kentucky, you’ll find Susan Beresford growing copious amounts of vegetables for Bloody Marys. The Cincinnati native and owner of Farm to Hangover started experimenting with growing different varieties of tomatoes in 2018, a few years after she moved back to the area. However, she considers this year the business’s official launch with the construction of her urban farm on land she’s leasing from the city. She’s currently growing 140 tomato plants, 162 pepper plants, and an assortment of other veggies, which she uses in her “top-secret” recipe. As of this summer, you could catch her peddling her wares at area farmers’ markets. Beresford, whose business is classified as a home-based processor under Kentucky’s cottage law, hopes to keep expanding her business with the community’s help. “I see the farm expanding and the Bloody Marys flowing,” she says.
