The Bugg Farm - A Documentary

The Bugg Farm is a tribute to the heritage of strong black farmers who have managed to survive and keep the land in the family for future generations. The farm, which originally comprised over one thousand acres was owned by T.J. Bugg, a former slave who was given the land by the owner of the plantation on which he had toiled.

Following in the footsteps of his ancestors, Addis Bugg, the great, great, great grandson of T.J. Bugg has recently returned to the family farm in Georgia to carry on the farm's legacy and become the 6th generation to farm the land.

A Moment....

We take a moment to remember Barbara Petit; a friend to farmers, an inspiration to all.

The award honors an individual or organization for outstanding community leadership in pollinating Georgia's sustainable farming and food movement.

We will miss her.

This 10 part project was a labor of love. To be able to turn on our cameras and let these subjects tell their stories about where they came from, how they got to Georgia, why they came, and what they want for the future, just blew us away.

Our hopes for this project were manifold:  to shine a light on the diversity of farmers in Georgia, through their stories inspire others to consider farming, and to show the importance of keeping farmland in the family.
Our thanks to the farmers who said 'yes' and allowed us on to their farms and into their lives.
