NEW FARMERS ON A MISSION
To foster a local food culture centered on nutrient-dense food from heritage-breed animals that express their genetic instincts in natural settings. In short, we aim to reconnect animals with the land, and people with their food.
Just a few years ago, we’d never touched a cow, chicken or pig. We’re like so many other farm stories, a couple who had enough of the rat race and wanted a simpler life. So we opted out of our suburban Atlanta HOA community, and bought the farm. Literally.
Perhaps we should have just joined a CSA or supported a farmers market. That would have connected us with the origin of our food, but we wanted much more. We wanted to be a change agent, for the land, for the animals and for people who were tired of not knowing where their food came from. So we dove in, head first, and started our farming journey. Now, 10 years later, we know it was the right decision for us and our community.
We also know that farming isn’t something that everyone can do. So we’re thrilled to be here as your farmer, while you’re there as our doctor, lawyer, teacher, fireman or whatever profession you’re drawn to.
HOW CSA WORKS
01 Pick Your Plan
Choose the plan that best suits your family. Maybe you’d like some honey, but no eggs? Extra fruit in season? Want some local, award-winning farmstead cheese delivered each week as well? We can even include a pound of locally roasted coffee per week in your plan if you’d like!
It all starts with choosing the plan that’s right for you!
02 Pick Your Location
With over 20 pick-up location options, you have a farm right in your backyard!
Want to meet us at the farmers market in Atlanta each Saturday? No problem. Or, choose from our numerous drop-off points in Athens, Gainesville, Lawrenceville and more. Better yet, why not visit us at the farm and pick up in person! The choice is yours.
03 We Pick Your Produce
Along with two apprentices, we harvest food from our raised beds and high tunnels constantly. In season, we’re also harvesting berries, picking fruit from the trees and cultivating mushrooms.
And we love it! We love being your farmer and partnering with you to strengthen our local economy and foodshed.
04 You Pick Up!
Every weekday in season, we harvest fresh produce, wash and box it, and deliver to one of our drop-off locations. So when you pick up your order, you know you’re getting organically raised, local produce that was picked within the previous 24 hours.
And if you’re new to freshly harvested food, you’ll get to savor what realfood tastes like for the first time.

“The variety and quality of your produce is unsurpassed. Not only are we healthier as a result of the real nutrients and minerals in your veggies, we know we’re helping to support the local economy and create a local food culture.”

“We didn’t think our kids would EVER eat eggs…until we found yours! Now, our kids countdown the days until your next CSA drop. Of course, we love how all the veggies taste and how nutritious they are as well. Thanks for all that you do!”
BOTTOMLESS PIT CUSTOMER
“Well, you kept our girls nourished through their teenage years. Now that they’re off to college, we considered downgrading to the Dynamic Duo option. Instead, we’ll stay put and just plan lots of dinner parties. You guys rock!”
