Here’s a teaser.

Louisville, of course, is the key gateway for Kentucky visitors. And for visitors – and locals – looking for the tourism trifecta – horses, bourbon, and cuisine – Barn8 at the Hermitage Farm in Goshen is as close to a sure thing as anyone could hope for. By any measure, it’s a unique destination that brings all those elements together, and getting there involves nothing more than a pleasant scenic drive north on U.S. 42 to Goshen.

Barn8 offers the quintessential farm-to-table experience. Hyper-local might be a buzzword, but it’s the right word for a place where many of the ingredients are raised right there on the historic grounds of Hermitage Farm, and form the basis for an upscale, yet approachable, seasonal menu that relies on harvests from an on-site greenhouse not only for its culinary offerings but also for its cocktail program.

Besides that, Hermitage Farm also remains a working Thoroughbred farm set on more than 700 rolling acres where legendary Kentucky Derby, Kentucky Oaks, and Breeder’s Cup winners have been getting their start (and coming home to retire) since the 1930s.
