Farm Passport

The Farm Passport is your guide to discover Georgia, support local farms and experience fresh food. Grab your passport and let it guide you across the state to see the diversity of agriculture Georgia offers. 

The Farm Passport features over 90 farms included in Georgia Farm Bureau’s Certified Farm Markets program, which was created to help people discover where their food comes from, meet the farm families who grew the food, and create lasting memories with loved ones as they travel the state.

Farm Passports can be picked up at any of the participating farms or local Farm Bureau offices. You can also download the Passport here and print at home.

Keep in mind farmers are at the mercy of the weather.  Be sure to call or check the farm website/social media before visiting to make sure the farm is open.  Passports can be picked up at county Farm Bureau offices or at a Certified Farm Market.

A letter from the coordinator:

We are sharing a reason to discover Georgia, support local farmers, and experience fresh food. The Certified Farm Market program is all about discovering where your food comes from and supporting those who make it possible. 

Your passport will guide you to traveling Georgia from interstate to dirt roads and from wagon rides to rocking chairs. The farms you visit will all be different in what they grow or offer, but the same in that they welcome you to experience what they do. 

As seasons change, Georgia brings a different flavor to the table. With over 35 types of fruits, vegetables and nuts grown in the state during different times of the year plus livestock, it’s easy to see why agriculture is the largest industry in Georgia. 

We at Georgia Farm Bureau are so excited for you to experience our favorite trade. As you travel, share your farm experiences with us using #farmpassport.  

Happy travels!
