About Us

The Family Garden, has been in operation since 2007. Initially located in Bell, the farm relocated to Gainesville, Florida in 2015. Jordan Brown grows Certified FAIR & Organic fruits and vegetables selling both wholesale to local restaurants and other businesses in North Florida and direct to consumers at the Alachua County Farmers Market and through a Community Supported Agriculture, or CSA, program.

The Family Garden, or TFG,  grows with dignity and respect for the land and the people who care for your food by following practices outlined by the National Organic Standards and the Food Justice Certification Guidelines; organic farming can benefit not only the farmer and the consumer, but also the the land and the people who tend to it.

The Family Garden has established itself as a leader in the sustainable agriculture community in Florida. It is Certified Organic and is the only Food Justice Certified Farm in the South. This certification ensures the FAIR treatment of workers, so the employees at The Family Garden make a living wage and have rights that other agricultural workers are often denied.

At The Family Garden, we aim to make organic food more approachable and accessible. We sell high quality organic produce at affordable prices because we want everyone to be able to eat well and choose the best products to feed their families. We know that most families are on a budget--we are too!--so we grow a variety of nutrient dense foods that are in season, fresh, and all for a FAIR price. This way, you can serve delicious meals each week without breaking your bank. Our goal is to produce high quality products and make it affordable for the regular folks.  

Through our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program, which runs for 32 weeks from mid-October to mid-June, we are able to offer restaurant quality produce to our community at wholesale prices. By signing up for a subscription members will become a partner of the farm, enjoying the first and freshest pick of what the farm has to offer. CSA shares are available for pick up at several locations in the Gainesville area. See the CSA tab for more information on locations and member options. The investment in our farm for the season helps The Family Garden raise the capital needed for the continuous cycle of planting and harvesting.
