Our On Farm Market is open every Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. April 1st through December 16th 2020.
We’re also open the first Saturday morning of each month, April through December from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
——-> We have 2 winter markets in 2020, which are holidays: Monday, 1/20/2020, MLK Day and Monday 2/17/2020, President’s Day. Both are from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
At the On Farm Market, we have produce grown at our farm, as well as beef, pork, goat cheese, pecans, stone ground grits and cornmeal, granola, AND yogurt from other local producers.
The farm is located one hour south-west of Atlanta in beautiful Pine Mountain, Georgia. Jenny and Chris Jackson, along with 5-6 farm hands, grow a generous variety of fruits, vegetables, herbs, and flowers on 3 acres. In order to protect the life of our soil, as well as the health of our customers, we use no chemical fertilizers or pesticides to grow our produce. We farm to provide meaningful work for ourselves and to provide our customers with quality, naturally grown food. We are very fortunate to be able to sell all the the food we produce within 30 miles of the farm. The majority is grown for our CSA, which consists of 150 families. The rest is sold at our On Farm market and through a couple of restaurants.
So it’s Jenny and Chris, not Jenny and Jack….. so what’s the deal with the name of the farm? A “Jenny” is the term for a female mule, while a male is referred to as a “Jack.” Mules are known for being strong, stubborn animals. Those are two characteristics that we feel are imperative for farmers to possess as well! We couldn’t resist the pun on our last name, Jackson.
And our daughter Tulsi is named for a medicinal plant we grow: Holy Basil, aka Tulsi. It’s known in the Ayurvedic tradition as an adaptogen, which means it helps the body restore vitality and vigor. It’s a beautiful and delicious smelling herb that we plant around the farm because the bees love it and makes a wonderful tea.
