We are not your average farm. Ashley Rodgers, the farm’s Owner and Operator, has been farming in Georgia organically for the last decade. Ashley is a mid-30's entrepreneur go-getter that doesn't let anything hold her back. We strive to create a work environment that is team spirited and hardworking. If you want to work with a young team of farmers that grow over 100,000 pounds each year of the best organic vegetables being sold to Metro Atlanta, then come join our team. You can learn more about Ashley and her farming practices/beliefs on the following media: CBS Sunday Morning, Women’s Health Magazine, and Civil Eats.
We sell our produce at 2 Atlanta Farmers Markets (Peachtree Road Farmers Market and Morningside Farmers Market) and to over 25 Metro-Atlanta area restaurants, our own CSA and our largest farm partner: Fresh Harvest of Georgia. The farm’s growing style is medium-scale, mechanized production: tractors, tools and machinery, however, we are not a big AG farm. Sustainable farming practices are the backbone of Rodgers Greens and Roots: compost, cover crop, and crop rotation.
We are a young, liberal-minded farming family and crew as well as an equal opportunity employer without discrimination. Job Description We are looking to hire a hard-working and reliable individual to deliver our locally grown organic vegetables to Atlanta every Thursday. We deliver to many local Atlanta area farm-to-table restaurants and other wholesale customers! This is a great way to get a behind the scenes look at the local farm to table food movement.
