Gillard Farms is a family-run organic farm, growing under the watchful eye of sibling farmers Althea Raiford and  Matthew Raiford.  Gilliard Farms was first established in 1874 by our Althea and Matthew's great great great grandfather Jupiter Gilliard (read more about him here).  The farm has never used chemicals to grow any crops and is a member of Georgia Organics,  Coastal Organic Growers and Georgia Grown. Althea & Matthew Raiford are the sixth generation to farm this land.  In October 2011 Matthew completed a six month apprenticeship at the Center for Agroecolgy and Sustainable Food Systems.  He will be returning to help with their annual Farm to Folk in Fall 2012.  Matthew serves on the board of trustees of the Edna Lewis Foundation and as secretary for Farms to Grow Inc.   Althea became a member of Women, Food, and Agriculture Network in April.

Althea and Matthew are also members of Southeastern African-American Farmers Organic Network (SAAFON).
