Tyson and Ashlie Ezell recently organized Crofton, Kentucky’s first Burdoc Farms Mud Run, where runners of all ages ran a course through the woods and got a little muddy in the process. “We wanted to bring a fun event to the community,” Ashlie said. “We hope this is the first annual, with many more to come.” Approximately 200 people signed up for the event which included a five-mile run, one-mile fun run for all ages, and a Mini- Mudder for participants 8 and under. The 650 acre farm has been in the Shepherd family for more than 60 years. Since Keith and Sara took over the operation in the 1990’s the tobacco and cattle farm has been converted to a conservation farm, with a focus on timber management, wildlife habitat, recreation and agri-tourism. The property is gaining fame as a destination with a serene setting, great staff, and lots of structures, new and converted, that are perfect for weddings and other special events.
