The first guidebook of its kind for the Peach State, Farm Fresh Georgia leads food lovers, families, locals, and tourists on a lively tour of almost 400 farms and farm-related attractions, all open to the public and visited by travel writer Jodi Helmer. Here are irresistible opportunities to find farmers' markets, dine at a farm-to-table restaurant known for its chicken and waffles, buzz by an apiary, stay at an Arabian horse ranch and bed and breakfast, and visit an urban farm in Atlanta where kids build entrepreneurial skills. Organized by six state regions (Atlanta Metro, Upper Coastal Plain, Lower Coastal Plain, Piedmont, Appalachian, and Blue Ridge) and nine categories of attractions, the listings connect readers with Georgia's farms and reflect agritourism trends burgeoning in the South and the nation. Highlighting establishments that are independent and active in public education and sustainability, the book taps local food initiatives and celebrates the work of local farmers.
