GFB CFM Farm Passport offers path to holiday treats and gifts!
Maybe you’re in need of gift ideas. Perhaps there’s a corner in your house that needs a Christmas tree or maybe there’s a gap on your tree that needs an ornament. Or perhaps you have an open day and need something special to do.
Georgia Farm Bureau’s Certified Farm Markets (CFM) and the GFB Farm Passport have answers for all those holiday needs.
Christmas trees, decorations, holiday treats, gifts and memorable experiences are all available through the CFM program. The Farm Passport is available at GFB county offices and at the 78 farms participating in the GFB Certified Farm Markets (CFM) program. The passport guides family and friends to farms across Georgia that offer food items for virtually any taste. Travel with the passport to explore Georgia, support local farms and eat fresh.
Some CFMs offer holiday experiences like choosing and cutting your own tree, on-farm photo opportunities and more!
Passport travelers will discover where their food comes from, meet the people who grow it, and see Georgia’s agricultural diversity firsthand!
The GFB Certified Farm Markets are listed in the passport. These markets grow a majority of what they sell on their farm or they allow people to visit for a farm tour. As marked in the passport, some farms have corn mazes and farm games, offer educational opportunities, or host special events.
Participants can start a family tradition and make new friends while relaxing in a rocking chair and taking in Georgia’s beautiful farm landscapes.
Passports can be picked up at any participating farm found at www.gfb.ag/farmpassport or at any local county Farm Bureau office. Passports must be stamped by Dec. 31, 2020. The deadline to submit your passport for prizes is Jan. 8, 2021.
Mailing in a passport with at least one stamp will enter the passport holder to win a basket of favorite products from CFMs valued at $100. Collect five stamps and earn a Georgia Farm Passport T-shirt. Ten stamps gets the traveler awesome ag swag. A collection of 15 stamps will qualify for a Certified Farm Market product of the consumer’s choice. Those who earn 20 stamps will receive a full access pass farm tour with a farm-to-table meal in 2021. For each level reached, the participant receives all of the prizes below that level.
If you’ve been participating in the Farm Passport program, the holiday season presents the perfect opportunity to “level up” and improve your prize package! Thank you for your patronage of GFB’s CFMs!
One passport allowed per person. One stamp allowed per farm per person. As you visit, share your journey with #farmpassport #gafarmbureau. While no purchase is required to participate, please be kind and make one since these farms are their owners’ livelihoods.
