Embracing Georgia Grown Initiative
While each day is different, we can never anticipate all the fun adventures and hard work that unfolds through The Farm Experience. On any given day you can find teammates engaging in a variety of 'farming' activities.
HALO Hobby Farm
On our 6.5 acre 'hobby farm' teammates may be feeding livestock, changing bedding, collecting eggs, or even harvesting pecans. You can also find them sharing ideas, collaborating, and working together to design barns, pens, coops and a variety of other structures. The hobby farm also provides ample space to process and prepare bamboo for our product line through the entrepreneurial experience.
Georgia National Fairgrounds, Starbuck Learning Garden
Through a partnership with Flint River Fresh teammates learn how to grow a variety of crops year-round through the guidance and expertise of Farmer Fredo. It's not just limited to growing food, teammates also learn about soil preparation, irrigation, planting, weeding and general garden maintenance as well as harvesting and distribution.
