We are a group of small farms and gardeners located in and around Waynesboro, Georgia. All member farms are dedicated to supplying their customers with the freshest and highest quality vegetables, herbs, mill products, dairy, eggs, meats, and fruits. Participating farms vary in size and specialty, but all carry the common thread of dedication to community, environment, health and education.
While not a true cooperative, we use cooperative efforts to achieve steady and dependable means of supplying the highest quality produce and other products. Locally Grown works to find new and innovative methods to preserve greenspace, protect our natural resources, support our local economy, provide meaningful work, and return to a more self-sufficient community life. Each farmer realizes the importance of educating the community about the benefits of sustainable agriculture practices to our lives and our land.
We SUPPORT Local Farms!
Why Support Locally Grown?
Enhance local economy: By purchasing produce and other items from local growers you are providing stability to your local economy through the support of local businesses.
Save natural resources: Buying locally makes you an invaluable link in the process of saving resources such as fossil fuels and packaging materials. Also, we are right here in your community so the expense of transportation and delivery is kept to a minimum.
Provide learning opportunities: Locally Grown supporters provide member growers the means to help educate our community about the importance of sustainable agriculture.
Supporting a way of life: The number of small farms in the United States has decreased dramatically in the last decade. Please help us preserve an honest and worthy means of making a living.
We believe that small, diverse, family-owned farms contribute to society’s overall health.
To provide with farms tours, educational programs, and to help us with our overhead costs, we ask that you pay an annual fee of $25 per household for one calendar year. You are welcome to try us for two orders before you pay the membership. The website will automatically add the membership fee to your third order.
Unlike other co-ops, buying clubs, or CSAs where everyone gets the same box of stuff (and you don’t know what you’re getting until you get it), with Locally Grown you get to order what you want, in the quantities that you want, from the farms that you want. The weekly email lists the produce, milled products, fresh flowers, and artisan goods available that week, and you can browse the items on this website before you place your order.
Other Important Items
Customers may place their order for the week at any time between Friday 12noon and Sunday at 8pm. Orders are placed via this website. Be sure to look for your confirmation receipt, making sure that your order was received.
Farmers and growers receive their “harvest reports” by email each week, in time to deliver to our market on Thursday afternoons.
Picking Up Orders
Pick up from farmer’s market Thursday 4pm-6pm. Pick up at the schools will be held on Fridays from 10:00am – 4:00pm
Note: School pick up orders can only contain fruit and vegetable items.
