Smith Family Farm Gardens

Travel back in time to Smith Family Farm where we're growing food, crops and flowers the same way they did in the 1860's.

A fenced vegetable garden provides heirloom produce for the mid-nineteenth century kitchen, while corn and cotton fill a quarter acre devoted to moneymaking field crops. Old fashioned ornamental flowers such as love-lies-bleeding (Amaranthus sp.) and rose campion (Lychnis coronaria) grace the enclosed front yard of swept dirt. A slave’s personal vegetable garden, common in 1860s Georgia, lies beside a small cabin behind the main farmhouse.
