Our Story

Free Home Farm is a small family homestead in north Georgia. Sisters, Sandra and Amanda, grew up in the suburbs of Atlanta with no previous farming experience. After the birth of Sandra’s first child in 2007 she began to pay closer attention to her food choices and started buying more organic, locally grown foods. Amanda quickly got on board with this new healthier way of eating. They volunteered at local farms to learn more about growing their own food. For Amanda’s 21st birthday they built her a chicken coop and she got her first two chickens. Soon after that, they built a coop for Sandra’s yard, too. It wasn’t long before both of their suburban backyards were filled with animals and gardens. It was obvious they needed more space. In October 2014 Amanda and her husband Daniel moved an hour north of Atlanta to an old farm house on 3 acres. Most of the animals went to Amanda’s house in the country where they would have plenty of space to roam, and Sandra was able to expand her backyard garden in the city. While their husbands are at work, Sandra and Amanda homeschool their kids, take care of the animals, and tend the garden. Their goal is to raise as much of their own foods as possible using chemical-free, sustainable methods. They currently raise chickens for eggs and meat, rabbits for meat and fur, goats for dairy and meat, and have a 1/4 acre organic garden.
