It’s official. I’m in love. Meri and I went up 3A yesterday to check out Scituate’s most adorable farming family Joe, Rebecca and Georgia, the owners of Sweet Georgia P farm and CSA. Driving up and down the road, we couldn’t make sense of the directions: how could a functioning farm and CSA be located in a quaint residential neighborhood like this?
And then we met the farm’s namesake:
No, that’s not the cutest doll you’ve ever seen, its sweet little Georgia herself. As we met the farm’s goats and chickens, she oversaw the operations from her newly acquired vintage stroller. She keeps a keen eye on her parents as they work to build their CSA that currently serves Scituate, Hingham, Beacon Hill and Back Bay.
Starting only a few years ago, the young family decided to fill a gaping hole in holistically raised foods. They have made a commitment to organic farming, though they are not officially certified organic. When I asked how the neighbors feel about their beekeeping, goats and chickens (they’ve got one loud rooster), Rebecca explained that she does her best to articulate her goal (holistic, healthy living) to her neighbors. Those original skeptics have warmed to their business, and really, with a mascot like Georgia, who wouldn’t?
