Wild Island: Goods & Gardens
This family run farm offers seasonal vegetables, poultry, eggs and other goodies. Before moving to Milledgeville a year ago, they started their farming journey on a remote island in Alaska where they grew vegetables and raised over 300 million salmon annually. Once they moved to a quaint farm along Meriwether Rd NW in Milledgeville, they were able to grow for longer seasons and a wider variety of vegetables. They are now open every day by appointment only and are currently focusing on growing tomatoes, peppers, herbs, beans, squash, okra, and flowers. They also pride themselves on using all natural fertilizers and pesticides. Visit their farm by booking an appointment through their Facebook page or call (517) 204-0848 and look out for their tomato pruning classes this summer.
