Georgia Farm Bureau is offering the Certified Farm Market Passport program for the second year.

The passport guides travelers across Georgia to farms that offer food items for any taste.

"Travel with the passport to live out your love of exploring Georgia, supporting local farms and eating fresh," said GFB's Kelly Thompson. "Passport holders will discover where their food comes from, meet the people who grow it, and see our state’s agricultural diversity firsthand."

Local farms participating include:

•O5 Farms at 279 Storey Porter Rd., Jefferson.

•Jaemor Farm Market at Banks Crossing, 40081 Hwy. 441, Commerce.

•Jaemor Farm Market, 5340 Cornelia Hwy., Alto.

•Moon Farms Country Market, 3498 Hwy. 72 East, Colbert.

PRIZES AVAILABLE FOR PASSPORT HOLDERS

This year, there will be more markets for passport participants to visit.

Those who turn in a passport with stamps from five or more markets will get a T-shirt.

Stamps from 10 or more farms nets the T-shirt and assorted ag swag items like sunglasses, bumper stickers, hand sanitizer and more. Travelers who get stamps from 15 or more CFMs get all that, plus their choice of selected CFM products. Get 20 or more stamps and receive a farm-to-table dinner and farm tour along with all the other prizes.

MORE INFORMATION

The Farm Passport is a collection of GFB Certified Farm Markets. These markets sell directly on the farm or offer farm tours and a majority of goods sold are grown on their farm.

Each farm is unique. Some farms offer a pick-your-own option, corn mazes, farm games, educational opportunities or host special events as specified in the Farm Passport.

One passport is allowed per person. One stamp is allowed per farm per person.

Participants can shared their journey on social media, using the hashtags #farmpassport #gafarmbureau.
