A letter from the coordinator:

Collecting farm stamps in this passport gives you and loved ones a great destination for a road trip and will create memories to treasure. While traveling, you will have the opportunity to familiarize yourself with our great state’s agriculture and meet the hands who grow food for our tables.  

Each farm is different with some welcoming you to pick fruit straight off the tree, some inviting you to pet their animals, and some have set out rocking chairs welcoming you to enjoy an ice cream with a view. Whether you want to continue a tradition such as buying fresh fruit in bulk to make jam the way your grandma did or want to try something new, these Georgia farmers have you covered. Enjoy the diversity of our farms and finish your experience getting your passport stamped!

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

Happy travels!
