7 Ways Our Amazoy Zoysia Lawn ™

1

Saves You Time, Work and Money!

CUTS WATER BILLS AND MOWING BY AS MUCH AS 2/3 Would you believe a lawn could look perfect when watered just once? In Iowa, the state’s biggest Men’s Garden club picked a Zoysia lawn as “top lawn – nearly perfect.” Yet, this lawn had been watered only once all summer to August! In PA, Mrs. M.R. Mitter wrote, “I’ve never watered it, only when I put the plugs in...Last summer we had it mowed 2 times...When everybody’s lawns here are brown from drought, ours stays as green as ever.” That’s how Amazoy Zoysia lawns cut water bills and mowing! Now read on!

5

IT STAYS GREEN IN SPITE OF HEAT AND DROUGHT

“The hotter it gets, the better it grows!” Plug-in Zoysia thrives in blistering heat, yet it won’t winter-kill to 30° below zero. It just goes off its green color after killing frosts, and begins regaining its green color as temperatures in the spring are consistently warm.

2

NO NEED TO DIG UP OLD GRASS Plant Amazoy your way in an old lawn or new ground. Set plugs into holes in the soil checkerboard style. Plugs spread to create a lush, thick lawn, driving out weeds and unwanted growth. Easy instructions included with every order.

3

ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY No weeding means no costly chemicals. Since Amazoy Zoysia lawns naturally resist insects, you’ll save money, while helping to protect the environment. You’ll never have to expose your family and pets to the risk of weed killers and pesticide poisons.

Thrives from partial shade to full sun.

Plant it from plugs.

VIEW FROM THE FIELD Gerald Long, GFB President arming is long days and hard work, but for those of us who are called to it (and I do believe it is a calling), farming is more than a job – it is a passion. I am blessed to have been able to follow my passion all my life, and I am thankful for that blessing. In this issue, we look at women in agriculture. In Georgia, 34 percent of the state’s farmers are women. That is an increase from 30.8 percent just five years ago. Part of this increase comes from changes to the census, which allowed for farms to report multiple producers, and most of those are women. But women have always played a vital role in farming. My own farm is a perfect example of women in agriculture. My wife, Janice, has managed our produce barn for more than 30 years. She has assisted customers, planned the sale of our vegetables and generally kept the retail side of our operation going.

My daughter-in-law Kellie now handles more of that responsibility in addition to her other jobs of driving tractors, working on the transplanter, baling hay and a whole host of other chores. Women at work is a constant sight at Long Farms! A love for agriculture is natural to my daughter, Jeanie. She studied agriculture communications at the University of Georgia, and she is now part of the agricultural economics faculty at Texas A&M University. Women are an integral part of Georgia agriculture, and I invite you to meet the strong women highlighted in this issue. They are just a sample of what you will find all across Georgia in fields, farms and forests. These women are every bit as proud of being farmers as I am, and we all share the same passion for our calling.

family, faith + the farm

Laura Pallas and Cameron Phillips start new life chapter at Buffalo Creek Berry Farm

STORY BY: Renee Corwine

“

Looking back, I realize that all these things were stepping stones toward farming.

6

G E O R G I A N E I G H B O R S / s prin g 20 20


f you ask Laura Pallas about her life on the farm, she’ll tell you she’s living a fairytale. It’s not that the rigors of owning and operating Buffalo Creek Berry Farm don’t affect her; because farm life certainly isn’t easy. The fairytale part happens in those magical moments when the balance of family life and farm responsibilities even out, and she thanks God for the blessings in her life. “It’s not an easy balance. It’s not a fairytale life but we are living a fairytale in that we are here together. We get up each day and get to be together, to me that’s important,” she said. When she was growing up in Madison County, Laura remembers learning a love of planting from her father, who was a plant physiologist. “I grew up with older parents – my dad was 54 when I was born – and family time was very important. Dad spent a lot of time with me, and he always let me help him plant seeds,” she said. Pursuing engineering, Laura attended the University of Georgia and discovered an interest in food science. That led to a master’s at UC Davis in California, and back to UGA for a doctorate in food science, which included a project to improve the process of drying Georgia’s blueberries. For eight years, Laura lived in Australia, working in the cereal and rice industries and using her food science degree to help farmers. “It was an amazing job,” she said. “Looking back, I realize that all these things were stepping stones toward farming.” While in Australia in 2014, she met Cameron Phillips at his family’s pomegranate farm in Victoria. They were married in 2015 and welcomed their first daughter, Elsie, the next year. “After coming home to Georgia for a visit in 2017, I told dad there was no way I’d move back here unless it was on a farm. I had worked in the corporate world and I knew it wasn’t for me,” she said. “Dad saw a blueberry farm for sale in Oglethorpe County and we went to look at it – and I fell in love with it. After lots of family discussions, mom and dad purchased the property and left it to Cameron and I to make the day-to-day operations work.” After tying up loose ends in Australia, the family moved to Lexington in October 2017 and began their life on the farm. Their crops include 2,500 blueberry bushes, plus blackberries, strawberries, mulberry trees, pomegranates and a “gigantic veggie garden.” Creating an online shop to sell their products is a major goal for them in 2020, as is continuing to focus on family time. Daughter Savannah was born in 2018. “As the girls get older, I want to ramp up teaching them on the farm while trying to do my best to support Cameron,” Laura said. Day to day, Laura and Cameron share farming and parenting duties in equal measure. “We have a shared farm diary where we write down the things we want to accomplish the next day, and then we help support each other getting it done. Cam does most of the labor, and I do most of the kitchen work, like pressing vinegars, but we take turns watching the girls,” she said. They’ve relied heavily on their local church community to support them during life’s ups and downs. Laura said she believes the support found through faith and through friends has contributed greatly to the farm’s success and their own happiness. Laura’s dad passed away October 2018. She said it was bittersweet and a reminder of the importance of family time. “Dad was the reason we came back here. It was as if it was God’s plan. Dad got us here, and I’m continuing his love of plants, teaching Elsie and Savannah to plant just like my dad did for me,” Laura said. “He was 90 when he passed; I was blessed to have him as long as I did.”

No. 1 BE NICE

Work ethic is certainly something that was taught on our farm growing up.

Treat people like you want to be treated. In any situation, you can choose either to lift someone up or to drag them down. Treat everyone the same, be genuine and don’t ask others to do things you aren’t willing to do yourself. Be hard on yourself and easy on others.

No. 2 WORK HARD Work ethic is certainly something that was taught on our farm growing up. Laziness was not tolerated. From scrubbing toilets to writing reports or managing complex projects, always do your best work. I firmly believe we learn something in every job or situation – take advantage of this.

No. 3 TAKE RISKS I am cautious by nature and I don’t like to fail, so expecting to fail now and then is a skill I have practiced. Without taking some risks, you limit yourself to small successes. When you mess up, own your mistakes and accept the blame. When there is success, share that success with others.

No. 4 NETWORK & CONNECT Network and connect everywhere you go, and nurture those relationships. Help others without any expectation of reciprocation. Don’t be afraid to reach out when you need help, an introduction or advice.

No. 5 LOOK FOR THE BIG PICTURE When you are in the depths of a problem, put yourself up on the balcony and look at it from a higher perspective. Basically, step back and gain a wider perspective of the big picture. When we focus on the greater good, the solution is often clearer.

LESSONS I’VE LEARNED: Advice for women in agriculture

STORY BY: Laura Perry Johnson

grew up in Moultrie as a part of Pinewoods Farms, a seventh-generation cattle and row crop farm. Much of this advice I credit to my mother and daddy, Becky and Big Louie, and to knowledge gained by growing up on the farm. After studying agriculture at the University of Georgia, I began a 25-year career with the University of Georgia Cooperative Extension and am now the Associate Dean for Extension. My family and I still live on the farm.

Back to her roots A return to the family farm sparked culinary success for chef Anne Quatrano | story by: Renee Corwine

I have the utmost respect for farmers and what they do. I hope the next generations really embrace it.

12

G E O R G I A N E I G H B O R S / sprin g 20 20


hat Anne Quatrano remembers about summers spent on her family’s farm is that it was always hot and involved a lot of chores. As an adult, her perception of farm life hasn’t changed that much. “I have the utmost respect for farmers and what they do. I hope the next generations really embrace it. Farmers stand up for what they believe in and create the amazing local produce that I value so much,” she said. A James Beard award-winning chef and Atlanta restaurateur, Quatrano lives at Summerland, the Cartersville farm that’s been in her family for six generations. Moving to Georgia and taking ownership of the farm is not something she could have predicted while growing up in Connecticut. “My mom was born and raised on that farm, and growing up we’d spend a few weeks there in the summers,” she said. “For years after my mom left and I went to college, the farm was taken care of by other people. Most of us thought we’d never go back.” Quatrano attended college at the University of Vermont, studying business and psychology, but readily admits she had no idea what she really wanted to do with her life. “During college I worked in restaurants to support myself – and I loved it. I loved the environment; it was G E O R G I A N E I G H B O R S / s p r i n g 2 02 0

like a team sport. I thought it suited me,” she said. “I started graduate school but went back to managing restaurants. I thought, ‘I know how to run this, but I don’t know how to cook in a restaurant environment.’” She did, however, know how to cook at home – a talent she learned from her grandmothers. “My grandmother in the South was interesting. She grew from the land and was a health nut before her time. She ate mostly vegetables and drank wheat germ. She was also into composting, although we didn’t call it that at the time. She was conscious of waste and what she left behind,” Quatrano said. “My Italian grandmother, on my father’s side, taught me a lot. I spent lot of time with them. She would pluck chickens in the sink, and was also a bit of a gourmand.” When Quatrano realized she wanted to follow her own gourmet path, she moved across the country and enrolled in the California Culinary Academy in San Francisco. There, she met her future husband, fellow culinary student Clifford Harrison, and her mentor, chef Judy Rogers. “I learned so much from her. She taught me a respect of ingredients, and I took that to heart. The combination of culinary school and her (Judy) invigorated what I thought could be my future,” Quatrano said. 13


Farming is the most admirable profession that I have ever witnessed or been a part of.

14

G E O R G I A N E I G H B O R S / sprin g 20 20


In 1986, Harrison and Quatrano moved east to Nantucket to get their restaurant careers established. After working as a team in several restaurants in New England and New York, by 1992, Quatrano said she and Harrison were beginning to feel that Long Island wasn’t the right place for them to open their own restaurant. And so, they found themselves at Summerland. “It was all really Cliff’s idea,” she said with a laugh. “My husband felt strongly about wanting to move back. We were disillusioned with how expensive it was in New York and so we decided to go work the farm a little and find a place for a restaurant. At the time, Atlanta was a sleepy restaurant town with only a handful of good restaurants. We felt like we could cook well enough to compete in that market.” Simple enough, but for one thing: They needed to learn how to farm. “Cliff had a horse he brought with us, and we moved into a double-wide on the property, and taught ourselves with library books. We built a barn – and it’s still standing, which is awesome,” she said. “We got a few puppies, started digging and towing and trying to learn how to do this. In the meantime, our goal was to open a restaurant.” By the end of that year, they’d found a location in Buckhead and opened Bacchanalia. On the farm they began growing things they knew they could utilize at their restaurant, like radishes, carrots and turnips. Using farmfresh ingredients is of the utmost importance to Quatrano and Harrison, and has been a focus from the very start.

“When we first got here in ’92, growing the produce ourselves was imperative if we wanted the restaurant to be local. Georgia is a big agriculture state, but at the time there were few farmers growing on a small scale,” she said. “Things have changed a lot since then, and that’s fantastic. We used to beg people to grow food for us – there wasn’t any way we could grow everything we needed. We were just two people trying to cook, working 18 hours days, and that left little time for farming. Now, if we can’t grow it, I can look at vendors and actually have a choice of where to get produce grown within an hour from where we are.” It’s not some altruistic sense of duty that has made Quatrano a stickler for locally-grown produce, dairy, eggs and more. “Honestly, it’s because the food tastes better. As a chef and restaurateur, my goal always has been to use the best ingredients we can procure made with the simplest preparation to let those ingredients shine,” she said. “A product that’s three hours old tastes nothing like a product that’s three weeks old. I want to have the best and the freshest ingredients that I can get in order to prepare the food we serve in our restaurants.” It’s a recipe for cooking that has paid dividends five-fold for Harrison and Quatrano. Since opening Bacchanalia, the pair have opened Star Provisions, Floataway Café, W.H. Stiles Fish Camp and Pancake Social – all while living on Summerland.

In the decades that have passed, Summerland has grown to include 20 horses, 300 chickens, eight dogs and a few donkeys. Their biggest crops are strawberries, blackberries as well as fruit and nut trees. Seasonally, they grow sweet onions, leeks, potatoes, sunchokes, tomatoes, greens, beets, turnips, radishes, carrots, peppers, eggplants and various squashes. “It’s fantastic and wonderful that we have the opportunity to preserve the property and to grow all this food for our restaurants. It’s a family-owned farm from 1840 and I don’t think we could ever get rid of it,” said Quatrano, now 60. “Having this farm is a luxury. It’s terribly expensive to run and makes no money. We are fortunate to have it. We have five businesses to help us support it. Everything we have goes into keeping that place going.” Quatrano said she hopes other chefs will emulate the concepts of true farm-to-table dining, and that more diners will come to appreciate and value Georgia-grown food. “I put all of my money where my mouth is,” she said. “If I and other restaurants will continue to do so, it will make the farming industry grow. We understand that what we get from the farm is worth every cent more we pay. Farming is the most admirable profession that I have ever witnessed or been a part of. They deserve our respect, our dollars and anything else we can do to help them.”

PROMOTING AGRICULTURE THROUGH EDUCATION Heather Cabe shares her experience as chair of Georgia Farm Bureau’s Women’s Leadership Committee

orn and raised on her grandparents’ cow/calf and broiler farm in Ila, Heather Cabe grew up surrounded by agriculture, but her love for the industry didn’t blossom until she became a young adult. Somewhere between driving the tractor and volunteering with Georgia Farm Bureau, Heather was lured in, her passion ignited.

What is Georgia Farm Bureau’s Women’s Leadership Committee? Our purpose is to promote agriculture through education and to expand participation in all phases of agriculture. It’s a remarkable opportunity to share the importance of farming with the world around us, and to interact with consumers about where food, fuel and fiber originate.

Why should others want to be involved? As women in agriculture, we have the opportunity to share our story with fellow moms, teachers and students, helping them find common ground with women on the farm. Through education outreach such as Ag in the Classroom, we are able to invest time into future generations.

How have you become a stronger leader because of your involvement? The Women’s Leadership Committee has pushed me to serve outside of my comfort zone and has enabled me to find leadership skills I never knew I possessed.

What’s been the most rewarding aspect of your involvement? When parents or teachers express their concerns over misleading agriculture facts and want to engage in conversation, it takes this service to a whole other level. Being able to provide accurate information that immediately eases concerns, along with interacting with students, is definitely rewarding.

What goals have you set for your tenure as committee chair? I want to empower our female volunteers to be bold. This group of women works hard to diversify lessons on farming that are both entertaining and educational. I want my experiences to encourage more young women to become involved with the committee.

Introducing

the future of personal transportation.

Also available in Black

It’s not a Wheelchair... It’s not a Power Chair... It’s a Zinger Chair!

10”

The Zinger folds to a mere 10 inches.

More and more Americans are reaching the age where mobility is an everyday concern. Whether from an injury or from the aches and pains that come from getting older– getting around isn’t as easy as it used to be. You may have tried a power chair or a scooter. The Zinger is NOT a power chair or a scooter! The Zinger is quick and nimble, yet it is not prone to tipping like many scooters. Best of all, it weighs only 47.2 pounds and folds and unfolds with ease. You can take it almost anywhere, providing you with independence and freedom.

Years of work by innovative engineers have resulted in a personal electric vehicle that’s truly unique. They created a battery that provides powerful energy at a fraction of the weight of most batteries. The Zinger features two steering levers, one on either side of the seat. The user pushes both levers down to go forward, pulls them both up to brake, and pushes one while pulling the other to turn to either side. This enables great mobility, the ability to turn on a dime and to pull right up to tables or desks. The controls are right on the steering lever so it’s simple

to operate, and its exclusive footrest swings out of the way when you stand up or sit down. With its rugged yet lightweight aluminum frame, the Zinger is sturdy and durable yet convenient and comfortable! What’s more, it easily folds up for storage in a car seat or trunk– you can even gate-check it at the airport like a stroller. Think about it, you can take your Zinger almost anywhere, so you don’t have to let mobility issues rule your life. It folds in seconds without tools and is safe and reliable. It holds up to 275 pounds, and it goes up to 6 mph and operates for up to 8 miles on a single charge. Why spend another day letting mobility issues hamper your independence and quality of life

The Zinger Chair is a personal electric vehicle and is not a medical device nor a wheelchair. Zinger is not intended for medical purposes to provide mobility to persons restricted to a sitting position. It is not covered by Medicare nor Medicaid.


Beware of gaps in your Homeowner’s Insurance story by: Richard Hart, Director of Sales Training Georgia Farm Bureau Insurance

ot all homeowner’s insurance is created equal. Coverage can vary dramatically depending on your policy and gaps can exist in even the most “deluxe” policies. Your Georgia Farm Bureau agent can help you add additional coverage to combat common coverage gaps such as these:

Water Damage Water damage caused by interior piping, such as a leaky faucet, is typically covered. However, water damage arising from the backup or overflow of sewers and drainage systems is not automatically covered.

Flood Loss Virtually all homeowner’s insurance forms exclude the peril of flood. Typically, flood insurance is purchased from the National Flood Insurance Program and is often the only source of financial recovery in the event of a flood loss.

Mechanical Breakdown Most homeowners know how costly it can be when major appliances, such as air conditioners, water heaters and sump pumps, malfunction. The mechanical breakdown of appliances such as those are not typically covered, but it can be added by request.

Personal Injury Personal injury is your legal obligation to a third party arising out of libel, slander, defamation of character, wrongful arrest, wrongful imprisonment or invasion of privacy of another. Even in today’s world of social media, many people overlook this important coverage and do not realize it can be added to their homeowner’s policy upon request.

Georgia Farm Bureau agents are experts in their field and take pride in spending enough time with members to help them find the coverage options that are right for them. Meet with your agent to go over your policy and ensure you’re protecting what matters most to you.

“MDHearingAids are better than expensive clinic hearing aids, which cost thousands more,” says retired physician Dr. Robert A. “I have had five pairs of expensive hearing aids and MDHearingAids are just as good,” adds retired neurosurgeon Dr. Brian L.

Doctors Are Tired of Watching Their Patients Waste Money on Over-Priced Clinic Hearing Aids MDHearingAids are the best value on the market, says Dr. Clarke: “I’m a physician, and I know how much people spend on health care. They should get the best value, and this product is just as effective (if not more) than traditional overly-priced hearing aids. I will be recommending MDHearingAids to my hearing-impaired patients.”

SAVE 90% COMPARED TO TRADITIONAL HEARING AIDS

CRISP, CLEAR SOUND

STATE-OF-THE-ART FEATURES

NO AUDIOLOGIST NEEDED

MDHearingAids were created by a board-certified otolaryngologist frustrated that patients couldn’t afford the high price of hearing aids. So, he did the only logical thing…he created a low-cost, feature-packed hearing aid that costs 90% less than a comparable hearing aid.

Behind-the-ear hearing aid with thin tubing for a nearly invisible profile. 3 programs for customized listening environments. Amplifies the critical frequencies of the human voice, without amplifying background sounds, so you can enjoy crisp, clear conversations.
