Lawrenceville Locally Grown is a group of small farms and gardeners located around Lawrenceville, Georgia. Each grower farms his/her land using strict standards to ensure that everything produced is chemical-free. All member farms are dedicated to supplying their customers with the freshest and highest quality vegetables, herbs, mill products, dairy, eggs, meats, fruits, flowers, and transplants. 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, Lawrenceville Locally Grown uses 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. Locally Grown member farms often dedicate a portion of their personal time to building gardens for their local communities as well as providing fun and informative educational programs for children and adults, including those with special needs.
Lawrenceville Locally Grown was founded in 2010 through efforts of James Bouchard (The Veggie Patch at Bouchard Farms)and the Locally Grown Network through Athens Locally Grown. Recognizing and responding to needs of community members and small business owners, we combine the efforts of individual growers to market their produce.
