Rockcastle River Trading Company

Livingston, KY

Nestled along the banks of the Rockcastle River and surrounded by the Daniel Boone National Forest is one of Kentucky’s best-kept secrets – The Rockcastle River Trading Company. It is owned by one of its own native sons, Jon Carloftis, who many know as the ingenious rooftop garden designer of New York City and his gracious mother, Lucille. While some might call this unique enterprise a shoppe, it is in truth much more.
The Rockcastle River Trading Company is located in the countryside on a rolling plot of 50 acres that is in actuality the lands of the Carloftis family homestead. Southern Living magazine notes “The Rockcastle River Trading Company is definitely worth the stop for any traveler visiting the state of Kentucky. Look for this unique stop off the interstate (I-75) just south of Lexington. Rockcastle River Trading Company invites you to take a break to stop and wonder its gorgeous grounds … its beautifully landscaped gardens are a touch of Eden.”
