Calhoun Produce, Inc. was founded in 1982 by Gerald and Joyce Calhoun. Over the next 15 years their business evolved from a predominately row crop farm to a diversified Agricultural Business. Today, Gerald and Joyce enjoy the company of their Son, Brad Calhoun, and daughter Sheila Rice running the family business.
The farm is a seasonal Agritourism hot spot. Families enjoy coming out to pick strawberries in the spring, tour the farm on the Wagon Ride, see a Pig Race, experience the Honey Bee House, visit with the farm animals and enjoy the corn maze in the fall. Calhoun Produce is also a local favorite for birthday parties and group events! We also host thousands of students each year for field trips. They learn all about life on the farm in the most exciting way in our "Outdoor Classroom"!
Our main crop is fresh shelled butterbeans and peas. Typically this season lasts from June- October. We grow, shell and pack them here right on the farm and take great pride in the quality of our products. June through August you can find us in our Cordele Market location as well. In the Spring we have a strawberry patch. We offer u-pick and pre-picked options. Additionally, we have seasonal produce such as onions, tomatoes, squash and more grown both here on our farm and by local producers.
During the Christmas season we special in gift baskets and gift boxes. We make customized baskets and boxes for you. Keep us in mind this holiday season for your corporate/business gifts! We can ship to your recipient directly from our store to save you time!
