Tucker Farms is a predominantly restaurant-supported farm in Rome, Georgia. We grow specialty lettuces, greens, and herbs as well as seasonal garden vegetables. We enjoy partnering with chefs, and working with restaurants, who embrace sustainability and a seed-to-plate philosophy.
Our hydroponic greenhouse allows us to grow our lettuces and greens year-round, and several hoop houses enable us to extend our growing seasons in the garden. Though we occasionally have mishaps, we strive to provide fresh, delicious vegetables to our chef-partners 52 weeks a year.
Tucker Farms’ mission is to grow responsibly, treat the Earth kindly, and provide our customers with safe, healthy, and delicious food. In both our gardens and the greenhouse, we utilize gentle and sustainable growing methods that respect the farm’s dynamic ecosystem.
Tucker Farms is owned and operated by Craig Tucker and his wife, Kikki. Craig was “born and raised” in Calhoun, Georgia, and Kikki is from Rome.
After earning his degree in Construction Management and working several years in that industry, Craig began farming in 2007. Kikki is a recovering attorney who has been involved with the farm “behind the scenes” since 2009. She joined the farm full-time in 2015.
In 2009, the farm found its home on a patch of land nestled at the base of Thomas Bluff on the banks of the Oostanaula River in Rome, Georgia. We built our first hoop house in 2010 and our hydroponic greenhouse in 2012. We continue to grow in different directions every year and aim to remain flexible and responsive to our customers’ unique needs.
