At Southern Sown, we believe success is not only about being the best in the world, but being the best for the world too. The mission of our farm is to provide unique and sustainable produce for a wholesome diet and holistic health. We work harmoniously with nature to grow specialty produce for local restaurants and consumers in Atlanta and the surrounding areas. Our goal is to consistently provide quality produce to wholesale and retail markets using production methods that are economically feasible as well as utilizing sustainable agriculture and best management practices. To top it all off, we love what we do!

Born and raised in Georgia, Trent has always liked to grow things – plain and simple. He moved to Colorado in order to pursue this passion, studying horticulture and aquaculture. After his education, Trent returned home and joined the local farming community. He lives by the words: do more of what makes you happy. When he isn’t at the farmers market, Trent will most likely be found in the fields, tending to the earth from dawn till dusk.
