Thompson Family Farms is a little out of the way, standing halfway between the two main roads from Atlanta to Athens. But it is well worth a visit. As you can see, the well-maintained stand holds a large selection of produce. When I asked the proprietor what they grew on their farm, she reeled off a long list of vegetables that come ripe throughout the spring, summer, and fall. Today, I picked up some beautiful okra, sweet potatoes, Vidalia onions, and a cantaloupe.
