Nestled in a lush valley between the mountains in Blairsville, Georgia lies a biodynamic farm taking powerful strides in sustainable design and ecological responsibility. Hugh Lovel, a renowned farmer, consultant, and educator of biodynamic agriculture, owned and operated the land for 35 years migrating to Australia, relinquishing the farm to fellow biodynamic enthusiast, Darby Weaver, to carry forward its legacy as a sustainable role model for growers and cultivators everywhere. The farm itself is a working homestead for Darby Weaver and her husband; dairy, eggs, wool, and meat are all raised on the premises along with fruits and vegetables that may be preserved through canning, freezing, or curing. Seeds are saved for the following year's planting, so the cycle may successfully continue. Anything produced on the farm in excess is sold to a local CSA, farmer's markets, and local organizations, and you can find Darby Weaver teaching classes through The Homestead Atlanta, Georgia Organics, and Young Harris College, among others.
