“I am thrilled to announce this exciting new partnership between the Georgia Grown Program and our hometown Atlanta Braves,” said Commissioner Tyler Harper. “This partnership will help to raise awareness around the all-star lineup of Georgia Grown specialty crops and bring the farm to table home for more Georgia consumers. From juicy Georgia peaches to the world-famous Vidalia onion, nothing beats the quality of Georgia Grown and we’re confident that this partnership will be a homerun for Georgia farmers and consumers alike.”

“The Atlanta Braves have worked with local farmers and food distributors to ensure access to fresh produce in communities across Braves Country through our Home Plate Project, and planted community orchards and urban food forests through our sustainability initiatives,” said Braves Vice President of Community Affairs and Executive Director of the Atlanta Braves Foundation, Danielle Bedasse. “We could not be more excited about this new partnership with the Georgia Department of Agriculture and Georgia Grown. It furthers our commitment to food security and food sovereignty, raising awareness of what produce is in season and grown locally for those in Georgia and beyond.”
