From the ground up

We are Zach and Ilana, a couple of local food enthusiasts with the goal of raising clean, healthy food to distribute throughout metro Atlanta. Having both grown up in the suburbs of Atlanta, we feel a strong connection with our Georgia home, and we want to see our community thrive. We started our journey together as farmers in 2015, on a Permaculture farm in north Georgia, and have since only grown in our enthusiasm for integrating technological innovations and timeless agricultural practices into a small-farm enterprise. Our farm is centered around family and community, and we love to share our story and our passion with you.
