Boánn’s Banks is a natural farm in Franklin County, Georgia. We specialize in growing heirloom and open pollinated vegetables and eggs from day range poultry. During the growing season (roughly May 1 through October 31), our produce is available through the Athens-area Locally Grown cooperative and occasionally at the Athens Green Market at Big City Bread (on the corner of Meigs and Finley) on Saturday mornings from 7:30 to 12:30.

We practice sustainable agriculture, which means applying only natural fertilizers and pesticides, and using techniques that conserve soil and water quality. The result is food as nature intended: fresh, full of nutrients, and produced without harm. We are not USDA certified organic, but we do not use any methods not allowed by the organics standards. As of January 1, 2004, our farm is Certified Naturally Grown.

The plants we grow are those preserved from generation to generation that your grandparents and their grandparents enjoyed. They were bred over the years for their taste and natural resistance to pests and disease. They’re nothing like what you’ll find at the grocery store. The chickens we raise are a variety of breeds from the nation’s leader in poultry breed preservation. They won’t lay uniformly sized pure white eggs, but the eggs they lay will be the best tasting eggs you’ve ever had. They’re fed only natural grains and the greens and bugs they hunt for themselves.
