Marietta-Smyrna Locally Grown is a small group of growers located around Cobb County Georgia. We are an expansion of the locally grown network. 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, eggs, 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.
Locally Grown was founded in 2001 through the combined efforts of Dan and Kristen Miller (Heirloom Organics) and the input from current and past member farms. Recognizing and responding to needs of community members and small business owners, we combine the efforts of individual growers to market their produce. Currently, Locally Grown sells an abundance of products to over 100 individuals and families, as well as local restaurants and grocery stores.
Locally Grown uses cooperative efforts to achieve steady and dependable means of supplying the highest quality produce and other products. Each farmer realizes the importance of educating the community about the benefits of sustainable agriculture practices to our lives and our land. Locally Grown works to find new and innovative methods to recycle community waste products (NO human waste), preserve green space, protect our natural resources, support our local economy, provide meaningful work, and return to a more self-sufficient community life. Locally Grown member farms 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.
Why Support Locally Grown?
Enhance local economy: By purchasing produce and other items from local growers you are providing stability to your local economy through the support of local businesses.
Save natural resources: Buying locally makes you an invaluable link in the process of saving resources such as fossil fuels and packaging materials. Also, we are right here in your community so the expense of transportation and delivery is kept to a minimum.
Provide learning opportunities: Locally Grown supporters provide member growers the means to help educate our community about the importance of sustainable agriculture.
Supporting a way of life: The number of small farms in the United States has decreased dramatically in the last decade. Please help us preserve an honest and worthy means of making a living. We believe that small, diverse, family-owned farms contribute to society’s overall health.
To provide with farms tours, educational programs, and to help us with our overhead costs, we ask that you pay an annual fee of $25 per household for one calendar year. You are welcome to try us for two orders before you sign up. The website will automatically add the membership fee to your third order.
Unlike other co-ops, buying clubs, or CSAs where everyone gets the same box of stuff (and you don’t know what your getting until you get it), with Locally Grown you get to order what you want, in the quantities that you want, from the farms that you want. The weekly email lists the produce, milled products, fresh flowers, and artisan goods available that week, and you can browse the items on this website before you place your order.
Other Important Items
Each Sunday evening, a list of available products is sent to everyone with an account here by e-mail. Customers must place their order for the week any time after that email goes out, but no later than Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. Orders can be placed here on our website, or if need be by responding directly to the e-mail, text or by phone. Ordering through our web site is Locally Grown preferred method as it is designed to reduce the amount of time it takes Locally Grown to process orders as well as provide you with detailed information about our products. Growers receive their orders that same night and harvest on Wednesday and Thursday.
