Pearl Mill Farms

I'm very excited to welcome PEARL MILL FARMS to our family of growers and producers!


Pearl Milll Farms is located on beautiful Richard B. Russell Lake in Elbert County, Georgia. Started by two families (one is a Suwanee Whole Life Co-op member) that have divinely partnered together for the purposes of sustainably raising all natural beef, poultry, eggs, pork, goat milk (LaMancha) and related dairy products – all of which they happily provide to friends, family and the local community. In addition, they are utilizing hydroponics fodder (seed sprouts from barley, sunflower and peas) as the main food source for their livestock. They make their farm available for farm tours and hands-on educational activities as well! Looking forward to our co-op taking a tour soon! In the meantime here's a virtual tour video. More videos will be posted soon
