Grandma Brock's Country Farm is a 13-acre farm situated between Atlanta and Athens providing locally and naturally grown produce in Franklin County, Georgia. We grow on land which is Certified Naturally Grown (CNG) using biodynamic, natural and sustainable methods. We specialize in heirloom organic tomatoes and vegetables along with medicinal/culinary herbs and flowers. Our produce and herbs are locally grown and vine-ripened for maximum nutrient value. We offer our produce at farmers market, on-line market, restaurants, on our farm and in a CSA program. Our mission is to build a locally sustainable future and committed to food security, education, and community.
We are members of Slow Food USA involved in Ark of Taste striving to re-establish endangered heirloom varieties. Each growing season we participate in Plant A Row for the Hungry (PAR) donating fresh produce to the Northeast Food Bank, Second Helpings and Atlanta Community Food Bank.

We invite you to become a part of our harvest through our CSA Program. We offer seasonal produce, egg and milk shares from May until December. As a member of our CSA family, you receive our commitment to growing the freshest, healthiest, Certified Naturally Grown food for you and your family.
Is a CSA Program for me? CSA members will be introduced to new flavor bursting nutrient dense produce while at the same time providing your old favorites in a different variety. Those that enjoy our CSA programs are most likely to get creative in the kitchen and adapt to what is seasonally available. Also members are known to can or freeze their seasonal share for later use. Our CSA members share that it is exciting being introduced to produce they have not tried before.
