The Chattooga County Commissioner's office, in partnership with the UGA Extension office and the Chamber of Commerce, is excited to announce a new initiative called HomeGrown Chattooga.
This initiative is being established to help local farmers and producers connect with consumers. The goal of this program is to help our local farmers increase the visibility of the products they produce, provide a farm-to-table resource for local residents, and provide an additional way for local farms to advertise.
Agriculture is the number one industry in Georgia and the backbone of Chattooga County, and buying locally-grown products is a win-win for consumers and farmers alike. We are inviting all local farmsand producers that would like to participate to send a brief description of the history of their farm, what they produce, contact information, and one to two photos. All of this information will then be uploaded to a new page on the county website to be utilized as a resource page for those looking for locally grown products.
Anyone interested in participating please submit your information to either of the following contacts:
