VIEW FROM THE FIELD Gerald Long, GFB President y first column as Georgia Farm Bureau president was published here in early 2016. The purpose was to provide some information about me, my family and our farm in Southwest Georgia. This column signifies an end to that journey. When my term as president ends Dec. 8, I plan to head back to Decatur County to renew my life on the farm. Being president of Georgia Farm Bureau has been one of the greatest adventures of my life, and we accomplished quite a bit during the last four years. We represented farmers in Atlanta and Washington, D.C.; that is our mission. But our organization is more than that; we make promises. We promised construction of a Mobile Ag Classroom to show young people the true picture of Georgia agriculture. Before they can have an appreciation for it, they must understand what it is. This December, we will unveil the Mobile Ag Classroom. When Hurricane Michael struck in 2018, we had a lot of promises to keep, and I am proud of what we did. The Georgia Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance Company made good on those promises to help

people rebuild their lives and livelihoods. The Georgia Foundation for Agriculture collected nearly $700,000 in donations, and every penny of it was distributed in a timely fashion directly to Georgia farmers impacted by the storm. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the company returned a portion of premiums to auto policyholders because the shelter-in-place rules led to substantially reduced auto losses. While it is important for our company to provide auto insurance coverage at profitable levels, it was never our intent to profit from COVID-19. We also donated $50,000 to assist food banks all over Georgia to help our neighbors in need. The point is that Georgia Farm Bureau stands for faith, family, helping neighbors and keeping promises. Those principles drew me to my county Farm Bureau as a young man, and they are what I am proudest of as I step down as Georgia Farm Bureau president. Thank you for the opportunity to serve, and may God bless us all.

A LIVELIHOOD AND A PASSION STORY BY RENEE CORWINE

Set in the North Georgia mountains, Bramlett Trout Farms is a leader in high-quality rainbow trout production

WE’RE SURROUNDED BY NATIONAL FOREST, SO THERE’S NO POLLUTION. THE WATER IS AS PURE AS IT GETS.

erry Bramlett’s grandmother was born and raised in a log cabin in Fannin County. She ate from the land and drank from the pure springs that flowed through the property. Living to nearly 100, Bramlett said there’s a correlation between her diet and her great health. Now, many decades later, those same springs that nourished the family for five generations are still flowing, fueling a successful business and a love for the land. “It’s not only our livelihood, it’s our passion,” Bramlett said about Bramlett Trout Farms, a business that he and his wife, Ruth, opened 40 years ago on the family property just outside of Suches, Georgia. Fishing has always been a passion for Bramlett, and is something he learned from his dad. Growing up on a cattle and poultry farm in Barrow County, when he completed his farm chores, Bramlett would spend time catching fish in Lake Lanier. Soon, trout fishing became his favorite pastime. “The ultimate hook for me in terms of trout fishing is the pristine environment, the clear-water streams and the vegetation,” he said. “Fly fishing is a peaceful and special time, and I enjoyed it so much it didn’t matter if I caught anything.” 8

Soon after Bramlett graduated from the University of Georgia with a degree in agriculture economics, his parents retired and the family relocated to their property in Fannin County. “We had a spot in front of the house that we couldn’t mow, so I thought to put a pond in, to have some trout at our disposal, because we enjoy eating them as well,” he said. “We purchased fingerlings and they grew at an incredible rate, and before we knew it, we had hundreds of 2-pound trout and thought, ‘What will we do with it all?’” Soon, he said the “wheels started turning” about going into the trout business, and so he took a sample of the property’s stream water to UGA to verify its purity and suitability for trout production. Turns out, it was some of the purest water they’d tested. “So, we acquired the land up the valley and secured our watershed. We’re surrounded by national forest, so there’s no pollution. The water is as pure as it gets,” he said. “The quality of the water, that’s something we’ve guarded very carefully over the years. We maintain the property so the water remains pristine.” G E O R G I A N E I G H B O R S / f a ll 20 20


Other attributes that contribute to the quality of the rainbow trout are the environment in which they are raised. The eggs come from a supplier in Washington state whose fish are certified disease-free. After being hatched in a fiberglass setting, the fish are finished in urban systems instead of concrete. “It’s more labor intensive, but it’s a more natural setting. The fish have full fins and great color because they aren’t exposed to abrasive concrete,” Bramlett said. Once he and Ruth got the business going, they began looking for ways to market their product. “Originally, we marketed fish to recreational fishing facilities. But the business changed gradually over the years as restaurants found out about our product and the fact that we could harvest and deliver trout to restaurants in Atlanta in a matter of hours. So, we slowly transitioned to selling to restaurants.” Some of the restaurants that serve fish from Bramlett Trout Farms include Bacchanalia, Empire State South, Holman & Finch, Kimble House and Tiny Lou’s. In addition, fresh Bramlett trout are available for purchase at Haywood Provisions in Roswell, Atlanta Highway Seafood in Gainesville and straight from the farm by appointment. Making an appointment is key, because operating a farm that hatches 300,000 eggs per year is more than a full day’s work for the Bramletts and their one employee. “Ruth is definitely an equal partner in all this. She can do anything I can do on the farm – and she often does,” said Bramlett, now 64. “The key to raising trout is the dissolved oxygen content in the water; the colder the water, the move dissolved oxygen it will hold. Because of that, we have to maintain a high flow of water – 2,000 gallons per minute. This rapid turnover re-aerates the water as it pours from raceway to raceway.” If the water stops flowing, even for a short time, the trout begin to die. Theirs is a 24-hour-a-day operation. “Even in the middle of the night, if there’s a heavy downpour or storm, we have to get out there and monitor the water flow and intake systems. Ruth and I are always out there together,” he said. “We stay very busy with this operation. We don’t just sit on the porch and watch the fish grow.” Despite the round-the-clock nature of their lives, the Bramletts have raised two now-grown children on the farm, and “on rare occasions,” they carve a little time to relax. “I have a customer I’ve sold to for 25 years. He lives north of Tallahassee, Florida, and is a fly-fishing enthusiast. He also has a place near us, and when he comes up, we fly fish on the Toccoa River. It’s still great fun and I do enjoy it,” Bramlett said. For the Bramletts, the time consuming work is made more enjoyable when surrounded by the rushing streams and vast wildlife of the Chattahoochee National Forest. “It’s absolutely wonderful here if you enjoy nature,” Bramlett said. “We’re blessed to live in a valley that’s been in the family for five generations. It’s so very peaceful, with a lot of wildlife like deer, turkey, bears and some grouse. You simply can’t beat it. What we call a traffic jam is three cars at a stop sign.” It’s in this setting that Bramlett Trout Farms produces what they consider the “highest quality protein on this green earth,” he said. “Rainbow trout are high in omega 3 fatty acids, which are so good for you, and they taste great, too – that’s something we really enjoy.”

I LEFT THE LAND BETTER THAN I FOUND IT

Musician Chuck Leavell makes forestry cool story by: Renee Corwine

Chuck and Rose Lane Leavell stroll through Charlane Plantation.

here have been lots of written words and plenty of talk about the talents of Chuck Leavell. Not only is he a world-renowned keyboardist, playing regularly with the Rolling Stones and on occasion with Eric Clapton and John Mayer, he’s also become well known for his love of forestry. And that’s evident when you walk among the pines at his home in Central Georgia. “Well, you see this is my wife’s fault,” Chuck said. “Rose Lane’s family has been connected to the land, literally for generations. She inherited some land from her grandmother back in 1981 and it just became our responsibility to carry on what we saw as a heritage of stewardship of the land.”

14

Chuck and Rose Lane Leavell own Charlane Plantation, located in Twiggs County. The property has been in Rose Lane’s family since 1792, and the Leavells have lived here since the mid-‘80s. Chuck said that caring for the land through conservation and tree farming provides a nice balance to months spent on the road as a musician. “I just believe that working the land, having a family as strong as we have, helps keep you grounded, you know. And those are the really important things in life,” he said. “It’s such a great opportunity for me to be able to go out and play with these wonderful artists, but when you come back and you’re connected to the land, you realize what your priorities are, and this is certainly a priority for us.”

G E O R G I A N E I G H B O R S / f a ll 20 20


The Leavells have a few employees who live on the property full time, and help care for it while Chuck and Rose Lane are away. “Forestry, as we know, is a long-term thing. It’s not like farming where you’ve got row crops that need tending more often, or peach trees or pecan trees. That’s one of the reasons that Rose Lane and I decided to go forward with forestry when she inherited this land,” Chuck said. “Forestry fit the bill for us in terms of, I could go tour and record and follow my musical career without having to worry about it day to day.” In the years since they’ve taken over Charlane Plantation, the Leavells have focused not only on conservation, but on growing the business of running the plantation – especially in terms of offering traditional Southern quail hunts. “We started that, I guess, about 20 years ago. Little by little, it has really grown. Now, it’s mostly repeat customers, lots of corporate clients that come in, developers that are entertaining their various people that they work with; we love that. For me, it’s like bringing the audience to me instead of me having to go out on tour,” Chuck said. “Certainly, we have fast flying birds, great dogs and courteous guides. The food is incredible – Rose Lane makes sure of that. I’ll sit down and play them a few songs or tell them some rock ‘n’ roll stories from the road. That’s become one of the most enjoyable things that we do out here. It’s seasonal, so it lasts about four months and then we’re on to other things.” Music fans know those “other things” include touring and playing keyboard for the last 37 years with the Rolling Stones. When planning their tours, Chuck plays a big role in helping curate performances as musical director.

THE SOUTH HAS BEEN SO GOOD TO ME, AND THERE’S NOWHERE IN THE WORLD I W O U L D R AT H E R L I V E . “So, here’s the deal, you know you’re going to do the iconic songs. I mean, people would go away upset if you didn’t do all of those things. But what you want to do is to fill in the rest of it with some interesting material. The body of work is so incredible. I mean, hundreds of songs that Mick Jagger and Keith Richards have written. You certainly can’t get them all in there, but what you try to do is get some interesting ones that the hardcore fans would recognize, but that maybe the general public would say, ‘What was that?’ ... I gladly take the responsibility because I think I have a fan’s perspective. I’m not only in the band, but I was a fan of the Stones when I was 14 years old playing that stuff at the YMCA with my first band. So, I think I have a certain perspective of what the fans would like to hear and how the set can flow,” Chuck said. For those who may not know much about Chuck outside of the Rolling Stones, it may come as a surprise to learn that he’s also a television host, producer, website co-founder and documentary subject. “America’s Forests with Chuck Leavell” airs on PBS stations around the nation, as well as on the website, americasforestswithchuckleavell.com. The episodes explore individual states in the U.S., touching on outdoor issues unique to each place. “The idea came some years ago through the fact that there’s so much misunderstanding about forestry. In my travels as a musician or also promoting forestry, you get people that don’t quite understand what sustainable forestry is all about,” he said. One of the ways Chuck has shared information about forestry and the environment is through the Mother Nature Network, a website he co-founded in 2009. 16

More recently, he was the subject of the documentary, “Chuck Leavell: Tree Man,” by Allen Farst. The movie won the “People’s Choice Award” at the 2020 Sedona Film Festival and took several years to film. “There are three components to the documentary. One component, of course, is music and the career that I’ve been so fortunate to have and the different artists that I’ve worked with,” Chuck said. “The second component is forestry. The third component, and most important, is a love story. Rosie and I have been married for 46 years. We have two wonderful children and four grandchildren.” With a family rooted in Central Georgia, despite a rigorous touring schedule and filming dates, Chuck’s thoughts remain centered around home and Charlane Plantation. “You know, sometimes it just drives me absolutely crazy. I’ll be out on tour and it’s wonderful. You get to visit these great cities and play in front of bring crowds, and play the music, which is always awesome, but you know, part of my mind is back here, saying, ‘Well, did we get enough rain? Is everything OK?’ It is a constant thing, it is always on my mind. But I will say this, it is a wonderful balance to be able to do both,” he said. From playing tunes on one of his grand pianos to planting pine trees, his hope for his home is this: “That I left the land better than I found it.” The Leavells could live anywhere in the world, but they are proud to call Central Georgia their home. “I am just a die-in-the-wool Southerner, born and raised in Alabama. Rose Lane says I defected to come here to Georgia. But you know, I have roots in the South. The South has been so good to me, and there’s nowhere in the world I would rather live.” G E O R G I A N E I G H B O R S / f a ll 20 20

Opening the doors of Green Gate Farm via Instagram, and offering Georgia Farm Bureau a rare tour, the Greens hope to quell misconceptions about poultry farms and show that they are “real down to earth people, not a big factory farm.” STORY BY: RENEE CORWINE

n fact, the husband and wife team grew up on farms: Steven’s family’s farm was nearby to Tara’s grandparents’ farm. In 2013, the young couple purchased Tara’s grandparents’ farm, which included poultry houses and 70 acres. They later started their own small calf/cow operation. “The thought of someone managing or buying my family’s poultry farm wasn’t an option,” Tara said. “We wanted to keep it in the family. We both have a love for farming and want to see that continue for generations.” The couple, both in their early 30s, are raising their 3-year-old daughter, Hadley Grace, with that same familyoriented work ethic they grew up experiencing.

IT’S NOT ABOUT SHUTTING PEOPLE OUT, IT’S ABOUT THE HEALTH OF THE BIRDS. “To me, farming instills something in you. It teaches life lessons, how to take care of things, how to love everything you have. It teaches you about life and death, where food comes from, and you can see the lifecycle of it. It teaches responsibilities – things that were instilled in my husband and I. Farming helps us teach Hadley these things through everyday life,” Tara said. Part of that everyday life is caring for 100,000 chickens at a time as an integrator for Perdue Farms. The chicks, which belong to Perdue, come to live at Green Gate Farm when they are very young. The Greens house them and take care of them until they reach the appropriate weight, when Perdue picks them up to go to the harvesting plant. What happens during their time at Green Gate is something both Perdue and the Greens are proud of. So, just shy of a year ago, Tara (@greengatefarmers_wife) made her first post on Instagram to, as she said, “open the doors of the chicken houses to show people what’s in there, what goes on and have them learn some facts along the way.” Tara is one of multiple Perdue integrators sharing their farms on social media, but she is one of only two in Georgia. “Perdue is on the cutting edge of social media, allowing people to see inside,” Tara said. “They see the importance of it. There are plenty of activist groups spreading misinformation about poultry farming, and Perdue is trying to show what it’s really like. Perdue even put windows in the chicken houses, which makes us happier and certainly makes the chickens happier.” G E O R G I A N E I G H B O R S / fa ll 2 02 0

Getting to see inside via windows and social media is one thing, but getting to step inside the chicken houses is another. Biosecurity, protecting the health of the chickens, is a big deal at Green Gate Farm. “It’s not about shutting people out, it’s about the health of the birds,” Tara said. “People have to get proper permission and sign a log when they come in the houses. They wear protective gear and step in disinfectant powder at the entrances. We’re trying to prevent spreading germs from the outside to the inside of the chicken house.” In the coming years, the Greens hope to keep expanding their poultry farming business through building or leasing more chicken houses. They plan to keep up the cattle operation, focusing on improving the genetics of the herd. Another big goal they have is to create their own line of ag wear focused on, you guessed it, chickens. “We have already started getting designs together and we have a name, Flock and Field. It will represent all farming but have an emphasis on poultry,” Tara said. Accomplishing all this may seem daunting for a young family, but farming is an important job, and one that’s dear to their hearts. “Farming is hard work, but I like how we can do it together as a family – Hadley included,” Tara said. “I like seeing the fruits of our labor, and knowing that, even in a small way, we’re contributing to feeding America. That’s near and dear to my heart.” 21

FA R M CITY Alex Little helps bring ag awareness to urban areas through Georgia Farm Bureau program STORY BY: Renee Corwine

WE NEED TO MAKE SURE T H E N E XT G E N E R AT I O N U N D E R S TA N D S T H E I M P O R TA N C E OF AG AND FA R M I N G . G E O R G I A N E I G H B O R S / fa ll 2 02 0

t 33, Alex Little calls his work his passion, and wants to spread the love for urban farmers. With a degree in botany from Fort Valley State University, Little works in Atlanta as a farrier and the director of a community garden at Westview. When we spoke via phone on a sunny afternoon, he was busy putting down compost before planting potatoes. “This is never work; it’s a passion,” he said. “I didn’t realize how much it was a passion until I was able to think about how much nature provides to us. We can make something great by working with nature and not against it, and when I’m working, I find that I’m at one and at peace with nature. I enjoy my work and helping people when it comes to agriculture.” Little is the South Fulton County chair of Georgia Farm Bureau’s Young Farmers and Ranchers program, an organization he called vital to future generations. “We need to make sure the next generation understands the importance of ag and farming, and that they can have longevity and create a family legacy through farming,” he said. Through the Young Farmers program, Little connects urban farmers to rural farmers, helping them work together to meet the demand for fresh food at metro Atlanta restaurants. He also meets with developers in Atlanta, promoting the importance of creating sustainable living in the form of urban gardens and Community Supported Agriculture. He has traveled to Washington, D.C. to learn about policymaking and to promote the importance of traditional ag education. “It is a great foundation for me to get more involved with policy and to see what it takes to run sustainable systems when it comes to farming,” he said.

Keeping the Promise,

NO MATTER THE STORM Georgia Farm Bureau considers it an honor and a privilege to serve as a source of support for you and your family in your time of need.

THERE FOR YOU WHEN IT COUNTS Fast.

Helpful.

Georgia Farm Bureau boasts one of the most courteous and fastest claims response teams in the state. The GFB Claims Department consistently outperforms the industry average in terms of response time, and staff receive high approval ratings from members.

When a Shelter-in-Place order was issued, GFB immediately took action on behalf of members: first by helping staff safely adapt without compromising service, and later by providing a partial return of premium on auto policies due to reduced driving.


A promise, not just a product. story by: Richard Hart, Director of

Sales Training - Georgia Farm Bureau Insurance

uring my 40 years in the industry, I’ve heard many misconceptions about insurance: • I only need automobile insurance to get my vehicle tag. • I buy homeowners insurance because my lender makes me do it. • All insurance policies are the same; there really is no difference. • Other people have losses, but it will never happen to me. • Insurance is really expensive, so I buy it as cheaply as I can. While many of these statements have some basis in fact, they disregard the most meaningful benefit of quality insurance from a carrier who cares. Insurance can save your family from devastating financial loss like no other financial service product can. Why? Because it’s a promise, not just a product. It’s a promise to protect your family from the risk of severe financial loss, and that’s why it’s so important to have good insurance coverage and a great insurance carrier. Good insurance is financial protection that is not only affordable, but has coverage and limits that are sufficient to protect your family should a loss occur. A great insurance carrier has a fair price and demonstrates fast, compassionate and efficient care throughout the entire claims process.

Some reasons why Georgia Farm Bureau fits the bill for good insurance and a great carrier: Georgia Farm Bureau Insurance was created by Georgia Farm Bureau members to protect the financial risks they face. It’s the only reason we exist. We weren’t formed to create profits for investors or stockholders. We don’t even have stockholders; we are owned by our members. We can offer the coverage you need and let you know what your options are. One size does not fit all! We’ll give you coverage and limits options to choose from.

Nobody fulfills the promise during a claim better than Georgia Farm Bureau. When you buy insurance from us, it is our promise of protection for you and your family. Are you a member of the Farm Bureau family? Join today at gfb.insure/GFBInsurance. G E O R G I A N E I G H B O R S / fa ll 2 02 0
