About our farm
Longwood Creek Farm is located in historic Crawford County, Ga. Crawford County was originally home to the Native American tribe Muscogee or Creek. Later, President George Washington appointed Colonel Benjamin Hawkins as Indian agent to all tribes south of the Ohio River. Hawkins established the Creek Agency Reserve in Crawford County along the Flint River.
Like many farms, our name links directly to our family, the heritage and to our land. Ed Tomberlin, my father-in-law, had a vision of preserving the pine wood forest of the southeastern United States and the abundance of wild life that depend on this dwindling ecosystem. He did this very successfully through wildlife management and mentoring young people through programs such as 4-H. Sadly, he was taken from us on April 5th, 2013 after a long struggle with ALS. Our goal is to continue what he began.
We strive to keep everything we do organic. Our farming practices are linked directly to the conservation of the longleaf pine ecosystem. We strive to preserve and promote dwindling livestock such as the Pineywoods cattle. Through all this, we hope to rediscover a deeper connection with nature and with each other.
