David and Teresa Weyler, have a love for country life, history, and nature. In 2003, they purchased their first tract of land in Trimble County, located on US-421. In 2005, additional acreage located along the banks of the Little Kentucky River was purchased.  This tract included the original Hunter House. Upon researching the history, they learned that the home was built by the Hunter brothers in the early 1900s. Their desire grew to see the house saved and the property preserved. Not wanting to see the house fall to ruin and realizing the property was too hilly and rough for conventional farming, the one option that seemed to meet criteria for the use of the land and the house, was to plant a vineyard and open a winery.

Volunteers

OVERview

Farm to Fork Fondo Volunteer Competition

In 2018, Wrenegade Foundation donated more than $50,000 to local organizations in our host communities via our Farm to Fork Fondo Volunteer Competitions. This year we'll be giving away even more, and your votes help decide which groups get the biggest donations.

At each Farm to Fork Fondo event, all the volunteers will be assigned to teams that each represent a different area farm or charitable organization. From the registration tent to the last aid station, you will be greeted and cheered on by volunteers who are competing to bring the most spirit to the day. Ask questions of the volunteer teams to get to know them, their missions, and what makes the event host community unique. At the end of your ride, you will vote for your favorite team and help determine the size of the cash donations we give.

The Volunteer Competition is supported by tax-deductible participant donations to Wrenegade Foundation, sponsors, and 100% of all raffle ticket sales.

Note: New volunteer groups will be announced Summer 2019
