My garden club headed to Jenny Jack Farm for a recent field trip. This sunny piece of earth is near Pine Mountain, Georgia and the beautiful Callaway Gardens. A new generation of organic farmers is changing the look of farming. This garden is on only four acres—and yet the results are amazing. The gardening show Growing a Green World  recently featured this interesting farm—watch the episode here.

Our tour continued at the farm of a fellow club member nearby. Her raised-bed gardens are set on a terraced field and the property includes the most charming chicken coop and barn—yes, chicken coops and barns can be charming. Have a little field trip of your own today and enjoy the photos!

The barns were so charming—love the black fence
