Produce

Straight From the Backyard

We are a small acre farm that practices sustainable agricultural methods, located outside of Loganville, Ga. We grow a large variety of vegetables; some are heirloom while others have only been available for a few years. We believe that having fun in cooking and incorporating new varieties in our diet is key to healthy eating. We hope our vegetables allow you to explore flavors from other cultures, countries and even varieties from our own country that have nearly become extinct.

Mama J’s Produce is a hydroponic greenhouse growing local, pesticide free lettuce and herbs. Started in 2009 in Cartersville, Georgia, Mama J’s is owned and operated by a mother and son team, Carol and John Jerauld.

We are a small acre farm that practices sustainable agricultural methods, located outside of Loganville, Ga. We grow a large variety of vegetables; some are heirloom while others have only been available for a few years. We believe that having fun in cooking and incorporating new varieties in our diet is key to healthy eating. We hope our vegetables allow you to explore flavors from other cultures, countries and even varieties from our own country that have nearly become extinct.

Produce

Mama J’s Hydroponic Produce

Mama J’s Produce is a hydroponic greenhouse growing local, pesticide free lettuce and herbs. Started in 2009 in Cartersville, Georgia, Mama J’s is owned and operated by a mother and son team, Carol and John Jerauld. Concerns about the safety of the food her family was eating sparked Carol’s interest in locally grown, pesticide free produce. John is challenged by the technological aspect of growing healthy food and preserving the environment in the process. By combining these interests, Carol and John have started what can truly be called a “locally grown family farm”.
