Though his wife grew up on a farm in Iowa, Jack Morgan didn’t have any agricultural experience until a little more than 20 years ago. When he retired from the armed forces, the Morgans moved to Canton, Ga., and decided to plant some apple trees. “Then I went to blueberries. I started out with about 12 blueberry bushes and they did well,” Jack Morgan said. “Then I multiplied it and we went up to probably 100 bushes. … So then I put in some blackberries.” Now, what started out as a small hobby farm is a flourishing pick-your-own agritourism enterprise. The Morgans’ property, nestled in the cool north Georgia foothills, is full of blueberry and blackberry bushes, apple trees, two bee hives, an experimental plot of corn, some grape vines and more. It’s dotted with ornamental horticulture plants propagated by Mary Jo Morgan, who was Cherokee County’s first Master Gardener. “Farming was new to Jack because he grew up in Detroit,” Mary Jo Morgan said. “But he’s always had a knack for it.” Though not all the crops are up for grabs

by the public, The Berry Barn has been a pick-your-own farm for about 16 years. “People that come out really enjoy it,” Jack Morgan said. “Sometimes they’ll bring their picnic. We do a little bit with the special needs children. They come out and pick and it gives me something to do so I’m not just sitting around.” He said opening this type of business has been “exceedingly” popular. His picking times are appointment only, and he ends up having to turn people away. “I get about 20 phone calls a day, and I would say there’s probably at least 100 that come out,” Jack Morgan said. “We have a good time, and it keeps us busy.” There are roughly 125 pick-your-own farms listed in Georgia, said Cindy Norton, agritourism manager for the Georgia Department of Agriculture. The most popular crops grown on these farms are berries – blackberries, blueberries and strawberries. Jack Morgan said blueberries are the most popular crop people pick at The Berry Barn. They’re perfectly ripe when they’re a deep, navy blue color, but if picked while See BERRIES, page 12

Farm Bureau honors two Georgians By Dallas Duncan The American Farm Bureau Federation honored two Georgians this month in recognition for their contributions to agriscience. Michael Doyle, a University of Georgia Regents professor and director of the Center for Food Safety, was awarded the Distinguished Agriscience Scientist Award, and Sonoraville High School agriculture teacher Sara Clark was given the Agriscience Educator Award at a ceremony in Washington, DC., on July 8. The agriscience awards are sponsored jointly by AFBF and the Christopher Columbus Fellowship Foundation. This is the fourth year CCFF sponsored the agriscience award, executive director Judith Shellenberger said. “It is one of our premiere programs,” she said. “Agriscience and agriculture is the backbone of America, and the foundation is very proud to be able to honor those working in that field or working toward See AGRISCIENCE, page 11

Apparel focuses on love of Georgia agriculture Published by the Ga. Department of Agriculture Gary Black, Commissioner

Mail to:

By Morgan Smith Derek Chitwood is a Georgian through and through. He grew up in a small Georgia town, working in his grandfather’s peach orchard, and wanted to share his love of Georgia and its agriculture with people everywhere. So in 2009, he started Peach State Pride – a clothing line devoted to the love and pride of Georgia. “I was a one-man crew with a big dream,” Chitwood said. “Peach State Pride simply symbolizes my love for the state of Georgia and the love and pride that so many others feel for this great state.” From Cartersville to Jesup, Dahlonega to Bainbridge, Peach State Pride products are sold in stores across the state. The company recently opened The Peach State Pride Store in Watkinsville, Ga. Though Peach State Pride specializes in apparel, it also has products

including decals, tumblers and koozies. “We care about Georgia in a genuine way. We give back to Georgia, and we believe in our small towns. I don’t think you’ll find another clothing line that does that to the extent of Peach State Pride,” Chitwood said. “It is our goal to provide our customers with the highest quality merchandise that shows our pride for our beloved state.” Peach State Pride joined the Georgia Grown program earlier this year, because, as Chitwood says, he believes in agriculture. “There is only so much joy and happiness that money, material things and pavement can bring to a person. Farming is such a pure establishment, given to us by God as an avenue to connect to Him and to enjoy His creation,” Chitwood said. “While agriculture isn’t the only use of land, I personally believe it’s the most beautiful use, and it will stand the test of time.” That belief is emblazoned on the company’s latest shirt design, which features the agriculture and commerce state Seal. “Agriculture has a way of slowing life down and putting things into perspective,” Chitwood said. “Not everyone can be a farmer, but everyone can and should appreciate farming, and that’s why we joined Georgia Grown.”

Negative reports are valid for 12 months from the sample date. A copy of this test report must accompany the ad each time it is submitted or the notice will be returned to the advertiser.

TAKE 5: Market Bulletin makeover 1. Who do you think should read the Bulletin? The Market Bulletin is a great tool for farmers, but in the last generation or two, it’s gotten to be a way for Georgians who might not live on a farm to stay connected to agriculture in some way. I have people tell me time and time again, “I can’t wait until I get my Market Bulletin,” or “The Market Bulletin is an old friend I get to sit down with every two weeks.” The real answer is that anyone who wants to sit down and connect with food and agriculture – whether they’re a stay-at-home mom, a chef or just someone who wants to learn – ought to read the Market Bulletin. 2. What made you want to first subscribe to the Bulletin? I subscribed the first time when I was in high school. I wanted something to come in the mail with my name on it, and I might see my picture in. That’s why it’s such a good tool for students and those in FFA and 4-H. It’s a place they can learn something about agriculture and they can be recognized for their participation in agriculture COMMISSIONER GARY W. BLACK there, too.  3. What’s your favorite feature of the Bulletin? The Farm Supplies ad category. Frankly right now, that’s our catch-all category, and there is always something interesting there. I have livestock at home, so I probably live vicariously through those Farm Supplies advertisers who have rough-sawn lumber, as I hope to have a portable sawmill someday and be a Market Bulletin advertiser. 4. If you could bring back any part of a “retro” edition, what would it be? I think our equine, farmland and pick-your-own issues have always been popular, and as a matter of fact we’re brainstorming right now about having a feature issue once a month: an agritourism issue, a livestock issue. That being said, I’d love for the Bulletin to be full of reports of regular events at the Atlanta State Farmer’s Market. At one time, it was a real destination, and that’s why we’ve been working hard on our farmer’s showcases, to see it again as an activity center for Georgia agriculture.  5. Where do you see the Bulletin five years from now? I would love for the Bulletin to be back to being a weekly publication. I’d love for us to be able to expand to 16 pages so that we’d be able to have more stories. But our limiting factor is people. If we had a circulation of 100,000 paid subscribers, we’re in the game of being able to achieve some of those goals. I would love to see that, and I encourage every subscriber to share with their neighbors and friends why the Market Bulletin should come in their mailbox.

GUEST COLUMN: Steve McWilliams

“Whose woods these are I think I know” The article’s title is found in one of my favorite poems entitled “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening” by American poet Robert Frost. As I drive across our forest-rich state, I often wonder how most people would respond to the question – “Whose woods are these, anyway?” My guess is that, unless you are yourself a landowner, or in some way connected to forestry or agriculture, the answer might be that the trees that line our roads and highways really belong to no one. Or, perhaps that they belong to everyone – surely the government must own and care for these forests. Most people appreciate Georgia’s forested landscape with little thought as to who owns all those trees. Sadly, some may be glad the trees are here to hold the land together until something better comes along. The fact is, 92 percent of Georgia’s 24 million acres of forests are owned by tens of thousands of individual private landowners. Often, the forestland has been in the family for multiple generations. Some may own a few acres, others a few hundred, but all are heavily invested in their timber, emotionally and financially. Private forest land is normally managed for multiple objectives – family legacy, hunting and other outdoor recreation, wildlife habitat or simply for the beauty and enjoyment that woodlands provide. Among the objectives, nearly all forest landowners derive income from their timber, either through periodic timber harvests, hunting leases or pine straw production, or more likely from a combination of these. Income from the forests is often necessary to support a forest management regime to keep the forests healthy. For some, timber-related income covers the annual property tax bill so that tree farmers can continue ownership of their property. Timber production – through harvests that may occur only once or twice in one’s lifetime – will fund college educations and weddings, recovery from family emergencies or perhaps years of retirement. FARMERS & CONSUMERS MARKET BULLETIN (ISSN 0889-5619) is published biweekly by the Georgia Department of Agriculture 19 Martin Luther King Jr. Drive Atlanta, GA 30334-4250 404-656-3722 * Fax 404-463-4389 Office hours 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday – Friday

Recognizing that Georgia’s private forests play a vital economic role in the life of Georgia’s timberland owners and tree farmers, the Georgia Forestry Association initiated legislation this year that created a House Study Committee on Timber Security. Theft and trespass which result in unauthorized harvesting on private property, while not epidemic in our state, nevertheless do happen and can result in significant economic harm to the victims. With the support of House Speaker David Ralston, R-Blue Ridge, and House Judiciary Committee Chair Wendell Willard, R-Sandy Springs, House Resolution 644 established a study committee comprised of House members and representatives from forestry and law enforcement to examine existing laws that address timber theft and timber trespass and to generally gain an understanding of the frequency and impact of timber transactions that are not legal and whose impact is felt throughout the timber procurement process. HR 644 recognizes that “it is in the best interest of landowners, manufacturers, local governments and the state that timber harvest operations be conducted legally and with the full knowledge and consent of the timber owner” and that many of the statutes that provide recourse for timber theft and trespass victims have not been examined in many years. The study committee will evaluate the conditions surrounding timber security in Georgia and recommend any actions or legislation that it deems necessary to address the subject during the 2014 legislative session. The study committee, set to begin its work later this summer, will include Rep. Chad Nimmer, R-Blackshear; Rep. Chuck Williams, R-Watkinsville; Rep. Ellis Black, R-Valdosta; and Gordon County Sheriff Mitch Ralston. Sandy Sparks, president of Sparks Lumber Company in Ellijay, rounds out the study committee which will be chaired by Rep. Willard. Forest landowners wishing to strengthen state laws that address timber security would be wise to let their elected representatives know of their support for this study committee.

agriCULTURE By Dallas Duncan

Nope, it’s not a typo. “agriCULTURE” is what I’m going to call this column. Why? Because that’s what the Farmers and Consumers Market Bulletin is. It is the premiere publication geared toward consumers and producers. It is the place consumers will turn to in order to learn about what their food and fiber is, where it comes from, who grows it and where they can buy it. It is the place producers will turn to in order to find seed, feed, farm implements, new livestock and in turn, sell that which they grow. The Market Bulletin is more than a twice-a-month newspaper. It’s the junction of agriculture and consumer culture. Take pick-your-own farms, for example. We wanted this type of agritourism to take center stage in this issue, and we wanted to do so in a way that would engage both producers and consumers. Having a pick-yourown section on your farm is a great way to engage people in your area in modern agriculture and share your knowledge of agriculture. We feature a pick-your-own farm in Canton, Ga., on page 1. At places like this around the state, Georgians can visit year-round and harvest their own berries, apples, vegetables and more. And whether you’re harvesting from your own field or enjoying food from a friend or neighbor’s farm, once the picking basket is full of Georgia-grown fresh produce, it’s time to take it home and cook a scrumptious meal or dessert, like the feature recipe that will be in each issue. Since it’s berry season, we’ve got the perfect combination of tart and sweet for you to make: blackberry bourbon cobbler served with lemon sorbet. Arty’s Garden is back and better than ever, with tips for both master gardeners and burgeoning green thumbs. This edition Arty shares some of his secrets to cultivating bay leaves, a woody-stemmed spice used often in roasts, stews, soups and other dishes. They’re a great addition for the home cook or casual gardener … or if you’re like me, a Pinterest-addict with a board devoted to pallet gardens. We want the Market Bulletin to be a source of agriculture news, but sometimes, that can be hard in a 24-hour news cycle. I invite you to join us in our expanded social media presence, where we tweet, post and share stories, breaking agricultural news and farm photos in between print issues. Check us out on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, Instagram and our Bulletin Blog – the full listing of web addresses is on page 12. We’re always brainstorming new ideas and ways to engage our producers, consumers and anyone interested in Georgia agriculture. But don’t worry – the print issue of the Market Bulletin isn’t going anywhere. We’ve revamped the layouts, included more original feature stories and photographs. Our staff is always looking for story inspirations. Do you know a producer, restaurant or agriculturalist who’s doing something really neat? Tell us about them. Is your professor researching a cutting-edge technique to cultivate crops? We want to know about it! We’ve even got a new online subscription system to make it easier than ever to get Georgia’s favorite agricultural publication, so tell your non-subscriber friends why this is the best $10 they’ll spend all year. These are just a few of the ways we’re taking the Bulletin to the next level, and hopefully to more people as well. Welcome to the new Market Bulletin, y’all. I hope you like it. Dallas Duncan is the new editor of the Market Bulletin. Originally from Evans, Ga., she graduated in May 2011 with a double major in animal science and agricultural communication from the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. She previously worked for The Red & Black, The Times newspaper in Gainesville, Ga., and Georgia Cattlemen’s Association.

No need to buy bay leaves when you grow your own I read that bay, Laurus nobilis, was not hardy in Atlanta, and I struggled growing it in a pot indoors. Around 1996 I planted my one-foot-tall bay plant outside since I was tired of carrying it in and out. Earlier this month I pruned off some of the limbs and branches of my bay (now practically a tree) yet again to keep them from touching the power line going into the house. I even had to take a saw to one of the limbs. Needless to say, the bay proved itself more than winter hardy for me. And to think I struggled with a small plant in a pot for so long. I have not bought any bay leaves in years. When a recipe calls for them, I walk into my garden pantry and pick whatever I need. My love of my bay is not just about the convenience or the money I’ve saved; I have also become a bay snob. Those dried-up bay leaves in cans and little jars at the supermarket don’t pack the flavor and fragrance of my Georgia-grown leaves. Who knows when those store-bought leaves were picked or how long they have been on the shelf? In the kitchen, bay is an essential herb used in spaghetti sauce, stews, soups, gumbos, roast chicken, pork, stuffing and seafood boils. I use bay leaves to prepare black-eyed peas and black bean soup. Because the leaves are tough, they are removed before serving. In going through recipes, I found one in which you simmer bay leaves in milk to make hot chocolate. I’m going to try that as soon as we have our first cold snap. Bay plants are slow to start from both seed and cuttings, so the quickest way to get one is to buy one. Due to the difficulty in propagation, bay is more expensive than other herbs, but is worth it. Remember, you’ll never have to buy a bay leaf again. Look for bay in the herb section of your nursery or garden center. Bay is sometimes referred to as “true laurel,” “sweet bay” or “bay laurel.” Do not confuse it with the

sweetbay magnolia, Magnolia virginiana, or other plants with bay or laurel in their names. Plant your bay in a sunny location in well-drained soil. A southern or eastern exposure is ideal. Gardeners in the Georgia mountains who want to grow bay may not be as successful as I have been. They may experiment by planting it in a sunny spot protected from winter winds. Planting near a south-facing brick wall will provide even more protection from the cold. No one has to let their bay get as large as mine. It can be kept pruned to a smaller size. If you don’t have room for a bay or think you’ll never use many leaves, see if you can plant one in a common area such as a church or a community garden where it could be shared with others. Bay is also one of the traditional greens of Christmas. Include branches of bay with holly, fir, rosemary and pine when making wreaths or filling vases with greenery. Bay branches tied together with attractive bows make welcome and inexpensive gifts for the cooks on your Christmas list. When I share bay with friends from up north, where it is indeed not winter hardy, they treat me like a sultan of the Spice Islands bestowing riches. I wonder if any Georgia Christmas tree growers have considered growing bay (as well as rosemary) to make wreaths or to sell as greenery. Though fir, pine trees and greenery get composted after the holidays, leaves of a dried bay wreath could be used in the kitchen all year. That might be a good selling point ... along with some of that bay-infused hot chocolate. Arty Schronce is the Department’s resident gardening expert.

New pest control commissioner announced vising the Georgia Department of Agriculture on enforcement issues, promoting education, and ensuring proper licensing, certification and registration – ultimately protecting the public health, food and property in this state,” Holley said.

By Morgan Smith Greg Holley was recently appointed to the Georgia Structural Pest Control Commission by Georgia Commissioner of Agriculture Gary W. Black. SPCC is made up of seven members, four of which are appointed by Black. The commission serves the general public and professional pest management companies by enforcing rules set forth by the Structural Pest Control Act. Holley’s new position with SPCC is to serve the public by making sure that all rules and regulations are met. “While that is my primary charge, as a small business owner, my current goal is allowing small business operators representation on the commission during upcoming rule and regulation changes,” Holley said. “The pest control industry is constantly evolving. With new products, equipment, techniques and insects emerging on a regular basis, the SPCC will face many challenges.” Holley’s background in pest control began in 1993 when he returned from serving in the Georgia Army National Guard. His first job in the pest control industry was at Allgood Services, Inc. There, he began to work his way up from a sales position to a branch managerial position in Douglas, Ga. Holley later became manager of the company’s home


Blackberry bourbon cobbler with lemon sorbet

Editor’s Note: This recipe was inspired by my mom’s peach cobbler. It’s just about the easiest thing you can bake – trust me, I never made a cobbler before this issue! The bourbon is optional flavoring and if you don’t have an ice cream maker, you can always supplement with lemon sorbet from the freezer aisle. Ingredients: For the cobbler: ½ cup unsalted butter, melted 1 cup all-purpose flour 2 cups sugar 3 teaspoons baking powder Pinch of salt 1 cup milk 4 cups blackberries 1 tablespoon bourbon (optional)

For the sorbet, inspired by Emeril Lagasse: 1 cup water 1 cup sugar 1 cup fresh lemon juice 1 tablespoon lemon zest

Instructions: 1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 2. Pour the melted butter into a 13-inch by nine-inch baking dish. 3. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, one cup sugar, baking powder and salt. Mix well. Stir in the milk, mixing until it’s just combined. Pour milk mixture over the butter, but do not stir them together. 4. In a small saucepan, combine the blackberries, bourbon and remaining cup of sugar and bring to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Pour blackberry mixture over the batter, but do not stir together. 5. Bake cobbler in the preheated oven for 40 to 45 minutes, or until the top is golden brown. 6. While cobbler is cooking, bring the water and sugar to a boil in a small saucepan for the sorbet. Remove from heat and cool. 7. Combine syrup mixture with lemon juice and zest and pour into the bowl of an ice cream machine. Freeze according to manufacturer’s instructions. 8. After sorbet is made, transfer to an airtight container. Cover tightly and freeze until ready to serve.

HOLLEY office in Dublin, Ga. In 1996, he co-founded Zone Pest Solutions, Inc. in Lawrenceville, Ga., where he has served as president for 17 years. Upcoming changes to the SPCC rules and regulations are positive. “Commissioner Black has worked diligently to outline these positive changes for the pest control industry. … Dedicated board members have allowed Georgia’s SPCC to set the standard nationally. My intent is to use my 20 years of experience to be an integral part of continuing to raise the bar,” Holley said. With more than 1,100 licensed pest control companies in Georgia and 7,000 licensed pest control technicians, SPCC is important to every citizen, Holley said. “It serves the public by proposing the rules and regulations of the pest control industry, ad-

CONSUMER Q&A: Peachy Keen Q: How long is Georgia peach season? A: Some varieties from south Georgia can become available as early as May. The Georgia peach season extends through August and even into early September, thanks to late varieties and Georgia›s geography and topography. Trees in north Georgia and at higher elevations will bloom and bear fruit later than their south Georgia counterparts and those at lower elevations. Georgia peaches are available at grocery stores, farmers markets and direct from farms. At the farms and farmers markets, consumers may be able to find out the name of the peach variety they›re buying as well as discover varieties not sold in stores. Don›t be afraid to try a different one this year! Consider buying some extra peaches to dry, freeze or use to make jellies and jams to enjoy some peachy goodness after the fresh peach season is over. Q: Do you have a recipe for peach iced tea? I found one last year but cannot find it now. A: We’re happy to help! Here is a recipe from our home economist:

AGRISCIENCE: Duvall proud of state’s honorees From Page 1 it … and educating high school students that this is a field they can pursue.” Award winners are selected by the CCFF board of trustees, which are appointed by President Barack Obama. Shellenberger said there are several reasons Doyle stood out from the applicant pool, including his work on food safety. “That is critical to everyone. That’s the epitome of our food chain,” she said. “What he’s doing is incredibly important to all facets of agriculture and agriscience.” Doyle was nominated for the award by Scott Angle, dean of the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. “We continue to work on trying to develop better ways to control and prevent contamination by harmful microbes,” Doyle said. “A lot of the work we’ve been doing recently has to do with produce.” Recently, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention noted produce was a “leading vehicle” for foodborne outbreaks, he said. Doyle and fellow researchers created a produce wash that, while a bit costly, is effective and has many food safety benefits. He said he’s honored by being named this year’s award winner. “When you consider that agriculture is the most important profession in the United States and it’s the backbone of our country, then this award is a very special honor,” Doyle said. It was Clark’s focus on inquiry-based classroom learning and independent study that caught the trustees’ eyes. “I think that’s so important because that’s how you grow in any field,” Shellenberger said. “Her classroom sounds like an environment where everyone would like to spend some time

and explore agriscience.” Clark first learned of the award when she was a finalist for the national Agriscience Teacher of the Year two years ago. A fellow finalist had won the AFBF award previously, and Clark was encouraged to apply for it. “We do a lot with scientific experiments,” she said. “The students think of things they’re interested in – anything from animal science or wildlife or ag mechanics – and then we set up an experiment … and they just take off. It’s just been incredible, the knowledge they’re gaining as high school students.” Zippy Duvall, Georgia Farm Bureau president, was at the awards ceremony. He said he’s proud that out of 20 award winners over the past four years, three have been Georgians. “[Agriscience] makes people think out of the box and discover new ways of doing things in agriculture,” he said. “We need all the research and technology that our farmers can take advantage of to produce more with less. As fewer and fewer people work on the farm and more and more people demand a food source, we have to be more efficient.” Clark said that’s a job for this generation of blooming agriscientists. “You have to start somewhere. And agriculture I think is just a perfect avenue for that because everyone can relate to that,” Clark said. “Everyone has to eat. It helps to develop relevance. That’s a big word we hear in education right now – if it’s relevant to what students are interested in, students are going to want to learn more about it. Once you’ve motivated that student to develop that interest, then you just sit back and watch.”

Following the success of last month’s Georgia Grown Farmers Showcase, Georgia Commissioner of Agriculture Gary W. Black is excited to announce that this event will be returning on Saturday, July 27 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Atlanta State Farmers Market. The Showcase events are aimed at increasing the consumer retail experience at the Atlanta State Farmers Market as they bring together farmers, producers and consumers to the area. Located off I-75 in Forest Park, the 150-acre market is one of the largest of its kind in the world. Georgia Farmers Sheds 13 and 14 will be closed to through-traffic so visitors can park and walk through, mingling with vendors from across the state as they shop. Showcase visitors will find a wide range of local Georgia-grown seasonal fruits and vegetables, an antique tractor show, food safety demonstrations, a chance to meet the Georgia Watermelon Queen, games for children and an opportunity to win free prizes from radio station 94.9 The Bull. Make plans to stop by for a day that is sure to be fun for the entire family, and enjoy treats from these vendors and more: • Abby J’s Gourmet Salsas • Larry Grier • Atlanta Honey Company • Oliver Farm and Oliver Oil LLC • Big Green Egg • One Screw Loose • Buttercup Farm • Pearson Farm • Butter Sensations • Royal Food Service • Compassion 312 • Sinfully Sweet Soap LLC • Country Junction Soaps • Southern Press and Packing • Food Service • Super Sod and Patten Seed • Georgia Watermelon Association • UGA Extension Service • Jaemor Farms • Verdant Resources • King of Pops

BERRIES: You-pick brings consumers to the farm From Page 1 still slightly red, they will ripen up after a day or two. When it comes to starting a blueberry crop, he advises starting out with three bushes of at least two varieties. The first year they need water, but after that, he said they’re almost entirely self-sufficient. They do need acidic soil and though they work well in the sun, they do not need full sunlight to be successful. In addition to the picking enterprise, the barn itself is home to a small farm store where visitors can pick up their buckets and browse homemade jams, jellies, orchard honey and Mary Jo’s watercolor artwork. Many adult pickers bring their kids with them, and the Morgans have something special on those occasions – a blackberry plant children can take home and grow themselves. “These grow very well – in other words, easy,” Jack Morgan said. “I hate to give children something they put in the ground and it dies.” Norton advises producers who want to create a pick-your-own operation to check with their local government, Extension services and farm insurance agent to determine additional regulations, requirements and liabilities. For those who don’t already farm but are interested in following the Morgan’s hobby pick-your-own model, she said to see what such farms exist in the area already, visit them and ask their advice. “Separate your you-pick from your commercial growing sites so there will not be any confusion,” Norton said. “Look at what you might need: bags and buckets; scales if done by weight; water, restrooms, payment methods.” She said visiting pick-your-own operations is an opportunity to experience the farm, especially for consumers who aren’t able to grow in their own backyard or apartment garden. “You are able to take your kids to see where their food comes from, have a little physical activity and

spend time together that will create a lifetime of memories,” Norton said. “It supports our local farmers and best of all, it’s Georgia-grown!”
