Fifth Generation Family Farm
Specializing in locally grown vegetables, fruits & Christmas trees as well as homemade jams & jellies.
Welcome to www.mintersfarm.com, the official website for Minter’s Farm and Inman Farm Heritage Days. The farm is located only 6 miles from downtown Fayetteville, 12 miles from Senoia and 16 miles from Peachtree City.
As the coldest days are (fingers crossed) drawing to a close, we are reminded of how powerful Mother Nature can be. Many of the blooms on the peach trees succumbed to the frigid temperatures and we will have another year with a very limited crop, if any produce. Things are never quite what we expect, but that is the gamble of farming. Our chore for the next few days is planting 200+ tomato plants in some of our high tunnels as well as some lettuce. Nothing says goodbye to spring like some tomato plants going in the ground. Although we preach the “no planting any spring/summer crops till after Good Friday” method, we are fortunate to have the high tunnels offer protection over the colder temperatures. Sometimes, you can work alongside Mother Nature in unfavorable conditions to ensure a good crop.
Minter’s Farm is taking a new-ish route this year. We are focusing more on the at-farm experience. While we will still participate in a couple of markets in the area this year, our goal is to steer customers into coming out to the farm for their needs. We will open up the Market Store (on the Inman Farm Heritage Days showgrounds) for customers to come and purchase the goods we will have for sale. Check our Facebook page to stay up-to-date with what we have available!
Rick is delighted to tell everyone he is doing a periodic blog about his various restoration projects – projects varying between trucks to car to tractors to engines. Check out Rick’s Rusty Relics page to keep up with what he has going on.
