How Our Farm Works

Growing Healthy Communities

 

Farm2Fork

Not only do we produce organic lettuce and tomatoes year-round at our Hilliard, FL indoor farm, we've also partnered with farms across the region that meet our strict standards so that we can provide fresh produce to regional communities.

Our partnership platform also includes food distributors, grocers, and restaurants...all playing a vital role in our growing distribution network.

This Farm2Fork Connection puts locally grown produce on the plates of more people.

Growing Our Farm Family

Traders Hill Farm is about more than providing clean, safe, and sustainable produce to our customers...we're dedicated to helping grow healthy communities.

Local is our way of life.

From working with local school districts to provide children and families access to organic produce, to working with area charities and participating in agricultural education programs...we're always seeking opportunities to serve others.

It's just who we are.

History

A Rich Heritage

Established in the mid-1700s, Trader's Hill was a trading post and small settlement on the St. Marys River in what is now Charlton County, Georgia.

 

During the Civil War, Trader's Hill became a refugee site for local people, including residents of St. Marys, fleeing the coast.

 

After the construction of the Savannah, Florida & Western Railway, the center of commerce in the area shifted from the river to the railway, leaving Traders Hill in a decline that ultimately led it to become a ghost town.


Today, THF Natural Resources (the parent company of Traders Hill Farm) and the Blaudow family have established a conservation easement around the original Trader's Hill Trading Post, preserving its history for future generations.
