OUR STORY

Our family has been a part of the community for over 170 years. My husband, Dave Knight’s
great, great grandfather, John Shaw moved to Sorgho in 1850 from Henderson where he made
carriages and wagons. He farmed and was involved in several businesses including the Sorghum
processing operation that gave our little town its name. His son, Emison Shaw took over the
farm, followed by his daughter and granddaughter, Mary Knight and now us. We remain
committed to this community and all our neighbors’ and friends in Owensboro.


The Cottage Farm Stand & Baking Co. was born from an idea to provide local produce, baked
goods, plants, and herbs to our community, being not only Kentucky Proud, but Daviess Co.
proud as well.


You can visit us at our store in Sorgho every day from 6:30 AM - 2:00 PM during the week and

6:30 AM - 5:00 PM on the weekends. 


We hope you will find our friendly little Cottage a nice spot to stop in and maybe
see a neighbor or two while enjoying the bounty of our wonderful community.
