This land has been farmed since 1807, when the very first Elder family member,
David, came to Georgia from Virginia.
We created Little Rose Organics in 2015 when we got a NRCS grant
for our High Tunnel Hoop House.
We are thrilled to be on-going farm partners with
University of Georgia's Capstone Program
for which we have many applications for sustainable improvements to our farm.
We have been teaching farming and nature programs to local children
since 2010 through our beloved
From our first tiny vegetable garden in 1993 we have grown into
a small working farm selling fresh vegetables to local restaurants and friends.
We recently converted our greenhouse to be 90% hydroponic!
We are thrilled with the fact that it is a game-changer for production, education,
and income for our farm.
We are now able to provide local, organically grown, perfectly clean lettuce,
which can go from tower to bag in moments with no washing necessary.
Growing lettuce in Georgia was previously a 5-month window of production due to
heat, not to mention the added work of removing soil from the plants and
keeping insects under control.

Nature Adventures moments!
