Crop Mob – Burge Organic Farm: A Blast from the Past

Aug 6, 2010 by     2 Comments    Posted under: Crop Mob Atlanta, Crop Mob Georgia, Events, News

Well guys, we had such an awesome time at Indian Ridge Farm, we thought we should get more mobbing in this month. That’s why we’re doubling your pleasure and doubling your fun with TWO mobs this month. Our first will be August 15th at the scenic Burge Organic Farm in Mansfield, GA and the second…well…we’ll get back to you on that one shortly.

The Farm

So Burge Organic Farm! Not only is this place beautiful, but it’s been in family hands for seven generations and has an incredibly rich history dating back to 1809. The Burge Plantation itself is over 2,000 acres of beautiful land, and the certified organic farm sprawls over an impressive 16 acres — so we’ve got our work cut out for us!

Cory Mosser is the awesome farm manager at Burge; you may have seen him selling something awesome and delicious at the Peachtree Road Farmer’s Market. Between throwing out his back and having a new baby in the family, it’s been a busy time for Cory. But if this mob is anything like the ones we’ve had so far, we can make up for his lost time in a snap!

The Mob

We’ll send out a reminder as the 15th gets closer to let you know what exactly we’ll be up to and if we’ll need any special skills or equipment. But we do know that Miller Union will be providing food again (you can start doing the “happy belly” dance now) so remember to bring reusable plates and utensils. We’re kind of a tree-hugging lot, so let’s try and remember stuff we don’t have to chuck at the end of the meal. And don’t forget water, sunscreen, hats, etc. All the good stuff to keep you safe in the scorching Georgia August heat.

We’ll be starting at 9AM to try and beat the heat a little, but the farm is just a little under an hour east of the city, so you won’t have to get up TOO too early on Sunday, just a little too early.

Good news! We’ve been asked to cap this mob at 75, so the more the merrier! Plus, if you don’t snag a spot for this one, there’s another on the way. Each mob keeps getting better and better; let’s keep the trend going! Can’t wait to see you and make some more history at Burge Organic Farm!
