Located just one mile from downtown Athens at 235 Northside Drive, the Williams Farm is an oasis in the city that has served many purposes to meet community needs. In recent years ALT staff, community members, and volunteers have worked together to grow produce, flowers, and herbs for our weekly farmers markets, Farm Share program and flower-share, and for donations to local food banks and soup kitchens. Most recently, Williams Farm has become the host site of the Farm Incubator Program.
The Williams Farm Incubator Program provides access to land, training and resources to beginning farmers belonging to groups whose members have historically been subject to racial, ethnic, or gender prejudice. The goal of the program is to help these farmers hone their skills and develop independent sustainable farm businesses.
