Front Field Farm | Winterville, GA
Jacqui Coburn and Alex Rilko
"Front Field Farm is the realization of a life-long journey. We take the best ideas and techniques we've learned and apply them to our certified organic produce and flowers."
Jacqui Coburn and Alex Rilko established Front Field Farm in 2009 on 1 ¼ acres in Covington, GA. They quickly learned that the demand for local, healthy and organic food was out pacing their existing acreage and needed more room to grow. In 2012, they found their new farmland in Winterville, GA, and moved the farm.
This piece of land was slated to be the second phase of a 60 house subdivision. Fortunately, Jacqui and Alex had the opportunity to save the land and keep it in agriculture, as it had been for many years. They are currently farming on 4 acres there and at the beginning of 2019 began the process of expanding their operation by including the neighboring Full Moon Farm land. They plan to "increase flower production like crazy" and we couldn't be more excited to see more of their beautiful blooms this year.They love being part of this awesome community of small sustainable farms and artisan producers.
2020 UPDATE: Jacqui retired from farming at the end of 2019, but she is still very active at Collective Harvest, helping to connect our community of growers and eaters.
