Woodland Gardens is a certified organic vegetable, fruit and cut-flower farm in Winterville, Georgia, just outside of Athens. Established in 2000, we specialize in highly diverse annual production, and we grow over 80 different fruits and vegetables. Our focus is specialty production for chefs and market.
We operate year-round and utilize heated greenhouses and high tunnels to extend our seasons and increase the quality of our production. We strive for efficiency and unique quality on our 12 acres in production, and we are continually improving and honing our inputs. Everyone on our farm team is skilled and experienced, and that keeps our farm tremendously productive, consistent, and (usually) very well organized.
You can find us March – December at the Freedom Farmers’ Market in a tree shaded lot of the Carter Center in Atlanta. We also sell to select restaurants in Atlanta and Athens, and through a monthly produce box program in Athens. If you wish to become a restaurant or CSA customer, please give us time to respond. We are fortunate to have most of our produce committed to existing outlets, but we’re always honored by new requests.
We pride ourselves on the quality and unique varieties that we grow, our relationships with our chefs and customers, and the stable work environment we provide for our workers and managers. We hope to improve our systems every year, and create a model, long-running farm that is a benefit to the community.
The 2015 Georgia Organics Conference is coming to Athens in February and we can’t wait!
Freedom Farmers’ Market
2015 will be our second season at the award winning The Freedom Farmers’ Market. Celia Barss, manager of Woodland Gardens from 2002-2014 was instrumental in conceiving and launching Atlanta’s newest market, along with the leadership and vision of Moore Farm and Friends, Riverview, and other talented farmers and supporters (Holly, Jen: thank you!). You will find us at the Freedom Farmers’ Market every Saturday from 9am-1pm. Located at the Carter Center in Atlanta, The Freedom Farmers Market has plenty of parking, great live music, kids activities, fresh prepared food, chef pop up tents, local color…and so much more. Come out and support your local food community. We hope to see you there!
Well. We are so excited to have this news (from Creative Loafing Atlanta)!
This year, we found a new reason to get out of bed early on Saturday mornings. Aptly named for its location
