MEET THE PEOPLE BEHIND THE BEEF

Georgia family turns their farm into a classroom to educate others on stewardship

Greenview Farms of Screven, Georgia has been in the Harris family for 150 years, and they have land conservation plans dating back just as far. Conservation is a part of who they are, and at Greenview Farms, they are always working to improve the work of previous generations. The Harrises run a diversified farm where their crops, pasture, and timber are all centered around the cattle. In an effort to promote stewardship, the Harrises recognize the need to protect water quality on and off the farm. The family has installed fencing to keep cattle out of natural waterways, and has worked with the National Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) to install a winter feeding pad to reduce erosion and runoff into the creek. The family also shares their techniques with other cattle producers and government entities, as the most important thing to them is sharing what they do with others. For their ongoing commitment to sustainability, Greenview Farms was awarded the prestigious Environmental Stewardship Award (ESAP).

"I have people come to me all the time saying, 'Johnny, why are you doing that? You're not going to realize any of the results out of that.'  And I say, 'Because it's the right thing to do, and because somebody is going to reap the benefit of it." - Jonny Harris, Owner, Greenview Farms
