Farm Bureau’s Farm Passport
Published 9:18 am Friday, June 2, 2023
The Farm Passport is your guide to discover Georgia, support local farms and experience fresh food. Grab your passport and let it guide you across the state to see the diversity of agriculture Georgia offers.
The Farm Passport features over 90 farms included in Georgia Farm Bureau’s Certified Farm Markets program, which was created to help people discover where their food comes from, meet the farm families who grew the food, and create lasting memories with loved ones as they travel the state.
Farm Passports can be picked up at any of the participating farms or local Farm Bureau offices or downloaded online at https://www.gfb.org/education-and-outreach/passport.cms
How it works:
As you visit participating farms, ask the farmer to stamp your passport. The more stamps you receive, the more prizes you will earn! Keep in mind farmers are at the mercy of the weather. Be sure to call or check the farm website/social media before visiting to make sure the farm is open. Passports can be picked up at county Farm Bureau offices or at a Certified Farm Market.

- See the chart in back for expected months open of each farm
- Look at the big map on the very 1st page of Passport before starting any road trip to see which farms are in the direction you are going.
- Review the “Icon Legends” from time to time to recognize when a farm is cash only, has special events/activities you should look up the date for or offers educational classes you can ask about.
