Locally Grown

alt Locally grown is an initiative that Dexter’s Farm implemented numerous years ago. We employ a regional purchasing approach that includes prioritizing purchasing for locally grown, Georgia grown and regionally grown.

Dexter's Farm has had the opportunity to partner with a number of schools systems implementing “Farm to School” programs with great success including national recognition and awards. This program works to promote healthy meals in school cafeterias, improve overall student nutrition, provide health and agriculture education, limit the carbon footprint and support local farmers.
