What We Are//
Locally Grown is a locally Athens based company that allows people to place organic, locally grown food orders online. We all have busy lives and often cannot find the time to go to our local farmers markets. This company gives people the chance to eat healthy conveniently.
We have now created an app to make this shopping experience easier than ever. Through our app, we hope to reconnect our community through healthy, local eating.
