Local Food & Rural Revival
Rural communities, like our village of Bluffton, Georgia, had been the backbone of our culture. But, for the last two generations, they have been sinking into oblivion. This is because they were made irrelevant by the industrialization, commoditization and centralization of the farming system.
In the last 10 years, the impact of our farm on this small town of 100 citizens has been dramatic. We now employ 155+ good people who are eating, shopping, and living in Bluffton. Our brand of radically traditional farming was the girl that brought Bluffton to the party 200 years ago. Today, this same Authentic American Agriculture is bringing her back to the party with fair, humane, regenerative agriculture. Restoring the town of Bluffton was not our intent, but it has been a delightful unintended consequence of the way we manage our farm.
