About Us / Flat Land Farm History: Produces Animal Welfare Approved beef and chicken eggs.\n\nJames and Marilyn Hammons raise Animal Welfare Approved beef cattle and laying hens in Sylvania, GA. The couple inherited Marilyn’s family home place, originally farmed by her father in the 30’s and 40’s. Flatland Farm is comprised of 158 acres of farmland, which now hosts a herd of 95 cows and one bull, along with 900 pasture-raised laying hens. \nThe cattle herd is a mix of Angus, Longhorn, and Brahman genetics, which results in an animal that is well-adapted to the farm’s Georgia pastures and which produces high-quality grassfed beef. The laying hens at Flatland Farm are a mix of Rhode Island Red and traditional Leghorn breeds, and roam and forage on pasture, which results in healthier, tastier, more nutritious eggs. “In fact, we can barely keep up with demand!” says Marilyn. She and James first heard about Animal Welfare Approved certification from a neighbor farmer who recommended the program. On being certified, Marilyn says, “It’s great to be a part of something this great and well-respected.”\n\nCustomers may call or email to make arrangements to purchase Flatland Farm’s AWA grassfed beef by the whole animal, half and quarter. Flatland Farm’s AWA eggs – along with Marilyn’s famous jellies and jams - are available at area farmers’ markets and select retail establishments. Visit AWA’s online directory for details.
