Elberton cheesemaker takes home top prize at 2014 Flavor of Georgia contest

By Dallas Duncan
Amongst the myriad sauces, drinks, snacks and sweets entered in the 2014 Flavor of Georgia competition, it was a cheddar cheese that took home the top prize on March 18.
Tim Young and his family didn't have any farming experience until recently, when, after reading agriculture books, they were inspired to trade their half-acre lot in Cherokee County for 126 acres in Elberton, Ga. They began with grass-finished beef and pastured poultry, and in 2010 added dairy cattle to the mix at Nature's Harmony Farm.
"We just really became enamored with the idea of turning that grass into milk and that milk into cheese," Young said. "We make a few different types of artisan farmstead cheeses from the milk of our Jersey cows. I would describe them as old-world type European cheeses."
The cheese that brought home the gold, ironically, was a gold product Georgia Gold Clothbound Cheddar Cheese, to be exact.
"Our milk tends to have this golden hue to it. [Our cheddar] naturally is that color," Young said. "We entered it into this com-

petition partly because it's a good cheese, but also because the name Georgia Gold reflects the pride that we have of being a cheese maker in Georgia. We're trying to promote Georgia being such a great state for cheese makers, because it's a state that grows good grass."
The cheese features Swiss-style cultures and flavor nuances in the milk produced by the grasses eaten by his Jersey cows. Because it is "allowed to breathe" as it ages, there is increased water loss and thus a higher flavor concentration than many conventional cheddar cheeses," Young said.
"We were all fortunate enough to taste it," said Kent Wolfe, director for the University of Georgia Center of Agribusiness and Economic Development. "It was a great cheese product and a great product overall."
To produce Georgia Gold, Young makes cheddar by cheddaring. Cheddar is not only a noun, it's a verb.
The process involves removing the whey and stacking the remaining curd on top of itself over and over, until it begins to resemble cooked chicken breast meat, Young said. After that point, the curd is run through a mill, salted, hooped and pressed into wheel form.
"Once you press it, then you wrap it in

cheesecloth and smear it with lard," he said. "That lard I put around the cheesecloth, it attracts yeasts, fungus, mold and bacteria of the friendly nature and those all become part of the cheese."
As the cheese ages, the wheels are brushed and turned by hand every few days over a period of months.
The cheddar was one of about 125 entries that came in for the 2014 contest, said Sharon Kane, director of Flavor of Georgia. This was the competition's eighth year, although it unofficially began in the early 2000s, when Wolfe and colleague Jim Daniels got started with food business workshops. They discovered one of the biggest challenges to getting products into stores was exposure.
"We thought up the idea of having this food contest as a way to help Georgians get their products out in the marketplace," Wolfe said.
The contest officially became Flavor of Georgia in 2007.
"Each year in the fall we start asking for people to submit their products," Kane said. "People from all over the state submit their products."
The variety of entries has grown so See FLAVOR, page 12

Philip Grimes will be sporting a new green jacket this fall as he represents Georgia in the Swisher Sweets Southeastern Farmer of the Year Competition at the Sunbelt Agricultural Exposition.
"I was sort of amazed and thrilled about it, and scared at the same time," Grimes said. "It makes you think you're doing something right, I reckon."
Gov. Nathan Deal made the announcement during the state Ag Day celebration on March 18.
"Philip Grimes epitomizes the strong spirit of Georgia's farmers by feeding the nation as well as conserving our land for generations to come," Deal said. "I congratulate Philip and thank him for his dedication to his profession and his contribution to Georgia's economic future."
Grimes originally began farming with his father-in-law and a neighbor, and the farms were eventually combined to be Docia Farms, named for the community it's in. There, the Grimes family and their three additional employees grow cantaloupes, watermelon, broccoli, snap beans, peanuts, cotton and corn.

Seventh-generation family farm expands product line, markets

Mail to: Published by the Ga. Department of Agriculture Gary W. Black, Commissioner

By Erica Lummus spring intern
Johnny and Kathy Burt started Burt's Farm together in 1972. It's completely family-owned and operated and has been passed down for years. The seventh generation will be coming up on the farm soon.
Though it originally began as a farm for fall items at the farm store, customers can find all varieties of pumpkins, squashes, Indian corn and others the family recently expanded to include a beauty product line as well.
"About eight years ago we started working on our beauty products made from pumpkin and butternut extract," said Kasey Sanders, daughter of the Burts.
The products include shampoo, conditioner, body wash, body lotion and moistur-

izing cream. The Burt's Farm product line is called Early Harvest by Burt's Farm LLC. The company applied for US and international patents for the products and will hopefully be marketed both domestically and globally.
"We want our products to be internationally recognized and we will make sure the US and international markets know we are from Georgia," Sanders said. Burt's Farm is excited to be a member of the Georgia Grown program and hopes that through the partnership they can establish new marketing connections. The family is very proud to live in the state of Georgia and believes that by opening up new markets, the family farm will stay alive and thriving "We would like to invite everyone to come out to our farm in the fall and start your own family traditions," Sanders said.

GUEST COLUMN: Educating the next generation on the value of Georgia's forests

How do Georgia's working

forests make life better? If you are

heavily ingrained in the forestry

community, you know the value

of Georgia's forests. But do your

co-workers, friends, children,

teachers or elected officials in your



As more and more people live in and around our state's cities,

fewer and fewer understand the importance of for-

estry as an economic engine including the jobs they

provide. Fewer and fewer know about the critical role

forests play in cleaning our air and water provid-

ing a lot of natural resources that we depend upon to


The Georgia Forestry Foundation recently launched

a new contest and education initiative, "Forestry:

A Foundation for Our Future," to educate students

and the public about the value of Georgia's working


As a part of this initiative, the foundation invites

fifth through 12th-grade students across Georgia to

participate in a contest to express the value of Geor-

gia's sustainable working forests through submission

of a creative artwork and slogan. The contest includes

two levels of competition: fifth through eighth and

ninth through 12th grades, with one winner from each

level. Each winning entry will be awarded a prize

valued up to $35,000, which includes:

u $15,000 cash award to the school

u $2,500 cash award and forestry camp scholar-

ship to the student

u Project Learning Tree environmental profes-

sional development for up to 20 teachers

u Paid registration for two teachers to attend the

Georgia Teacher Conservation Workshop

u A field trip for students in the grade level of each

winning student

u Materials featuring the winning artwork and


The winning students, their parents or guardians,

and two school staff members from each of the win-

ning schools will also be invited to attend an expenses-

paid award ceremony on Sunday, July 20, at the

Georgia Forestry Association's Annual Conference in Hilton Head Island, SC.
As students consider how to express the importance of Georgia's forests, they will learn that almost 25 million of Georgia's 37 million acres of land are forestland. They will learn that our working forests provide almost $29 billion to the state's economy annually and offer more than 135,000 jobs to Georgians. And they will learn that research estimates more than $37 billion of annual value to our state of the benefits of clean air, clean water, carbon storage, wildlife habitat and aesthetics provided by working forests. Above all, they will learn that working forests are renewable and sustainable.
The foundation will use the artwork and slogan from the contest's two winning schools to create banners for container trucks, interstate billboards, yard signs and other marketing materials that will be used in a campaign to further educate the general public across the state.
The artwork, slogan and entry form must be submitted by April 30, 2014, to be considered in the statewide competition. Only one submission will be accepted per school. The winners will be notified by the foundation by May 16.

GFF was established in 1990 as a 501 (c) (3) organization to act as the educational arm of the Georgia Forestry Association. Its mission is to "fund and support educational and research activities which promote understanding and appreciation of our forest and their benefits to society." GFF supports and administers the Georgia Project Learning Tree, the Georgia Tree Farm Program and the Georgia Teacher Conservation Workshop.

GUEST COLUMN: The importance of pest control

It is truly an honor to be al-

lowed to write this article for the

Market Bulletin. As I began to

write this, I realized that I had

only briefly read this fine publica-

tion. Well, now I have become an

online subscriber and I encourage

you to do the same thing. At $5 a

year that is a great deal.

On to the business at hand:


as I began to think about what to write about, a comparison came

to mind. The American farmer and meat producer

have done so much for this great nation. Since my time

on this planet began, the farmers and meat producers

have used science and technology to greatly increase

their yields per acre plus producing healthier offspring.

They greatly improved the quality of their products.

Then I turned my thoughts to the pest control in-

dustry. During that same timeline we have made great

strides in our rate of application to the safety of our

products. We have used some of that same science and

technology to create better and safer products to keep

the consumers' homes and businesses pest-free.

We transitioned from just spraying everything down

to applying when necessary the right product to control

those unwanted house guests. In times past it would sometimes take hundreds of gallons to control those pesky termites. We now have the technology to produce products where, under the right circ*mstances, just a few grams of products in the termite gallery are proven to control those pesky little home munchers.
So in closing, let me say that if you have pest problems, please contact your exterminator to help get rid of those unwanted guests. To find a pest management professional in your area please go to the Georgia Pest Control Association to find a licensed pest professional in your hometown.
Manuel Snipes is the president of Georgia Pest Control Association and also works for Azalea City Exterminators in Valdosta, Ga. Snipes began his pest control career in 1978 and is a certified operator in categories 29 and 30. He began his own pest control company in 1988. The association was organized in 195 to serve as an educational coordinator for the professional pest management industry and consumers. Licensed applicators must meet stringent requirements set by the Structural Pest Control Commission which require regular continuing education, insurance and standards of application. GPCA offices are located at 2034 Beaver Ruin Road in Norcross, Ga., and may be reached at 770-417-1881.

Letter from the editor
We've implemented quite a few changes during the past eight months to make subscribing and advertising more accessible, and I know it's kind of a lot to get used to! I wanted to take a few moments and make some clarifications about our subscription and ads processes.
Last summer, the Market Bulletin changed to have two addresses, both of which are listed on page two. One of these is the same ol' street address we've had for decades. The second is a PO Box. The PO Box is for subscriptions only it's manned by a third party whose sole job is to scan in checks and renewal coupons as soon as they come through the mail. Everything else, including ads and letters, still needs to come to our street address.
Here's why that's important. If you send a subscription to our street address, it comes directly to the office. We then have to send it on to the PO Box, which results in longer processing time. If you're renewing, it means you might skip an issue or two for example, if you expire on April 16, your first issue of the renewed subscription might be May 14 instead of April 30. If you're starting a new subscription, it'll delay the start. The same thing goes for other correspondence sent to the PO Box. Those files don't come to the office. Therefore, if you want your ad run in the next available issue without delay, please remember to send them to our street address, fax them in or send them online! If you renewed your subscription after November, you probably noticed we started sending out renewal notices. Thirty days before the subscription is set to expire, I get a list together and the notices are automatically sent out. For example, say your subscription is set to expire on May 14. On April 14, I'll pull the list together, send it to the printer and everyone on that list gets a coupon. If you renew your subscription before April 14, you won't get a renewal notice, because now your expiration date changed to 2015! But if you renew after April 14, you'll still get a notice in the mail because the notices were mailed out on that day. When you get your notice, you can either renew online or pop a check in the mail along with your notice. Let me mention this, as well. Please, pretty please, send us checks! Money orders, if lost in the mail, cannot be tracked from our end, and we don't want y'all out any money. Cash is equally difficult to trace. Checks are easier to trace and to void if they get lost, and they're what our system is set to process easily, allowing you a faster start to your subscription. The last little bit I want to touch on is ad submissions. You must have an up-to-date Market Bulletin subscriber number in order to advertise with us. If you submit an ad and use a name, or a city with your name that doesn't match a record we have in our subscriber database, a member of our staff will be giving you a call. This is to make sure that all advertisers are following the guidelines of one ad per subscriber per issue, and also makes sure that our advertisers are subscribers. I hope all of this makes sense. As I said, I know it is a lot to take in, but please trust that we at the Market Bulletin are working to make these processes as seamless as possible, and I hope you will continue to support and help us in that mission!

Registration now open for Georgia Grown Symposium this month in Perry

By Dallas Duncan
Producers across the state are invited to mark their calendars for April 22 and make their way to the Georgia National Fairgrounds for the second Georgia Grown Symposium.
The symposium will feature four panels of moderated discussion by industry leaders.
"The first panel is discussing food safety issues and licensing requirements to selling your agricultural products. The second panel is discussing financing and funding grants for your agricultural business. The third panel is helping getting your product to market, where we'll discuss packaging, copacking and finding a distributor for your product," said Matthew Kulinski, marketing manager for the Department.
The fourth panel will focus on retail and product selling. "We'll have representatives from major grocery store chains as well as people who work with farmers markets," Kulinski said. "Our overall goal is to provide information that will benefit the farmers, growers, processors and manufacturers at a small and medium-size level." Panelists will be available before and after their talks to answer questions, and an expo area will include companies

represented on the panels, including major grocery retailers, Kulinski said.
There are a number of meetings that occur throughout Georgia to support growers and manufactured food producers, Kulinski said. Commodity group meetings are geared toward farming and agriculture support, various workshops focus on financing and loans, and the "Starting a Small Food Business Workshop" is designed for specially manufactured food products.
"We hope the Georgia Grown Symposium is specifically targeted to helping Georgia's farmers and food manufacturers sell their products," he said.
The first symposium, held in 2012, included more breakout sessions and general classes on messaging. Kulinski said the 2014 event will be beneficial to a broad range of Georgia Grown members though it's open to all producers.
"We think it's most beneficial to small and medium-size companies, people who are just starting off or people who are starting to take their agricultural business to the next level," Kulinski said. "However, Georgia Grown members do receive a significant discount, or free tickets, to the symposium."
Kulinski said he feels attending the symposium is impor-

tant for Georgians starting or growing their food business. "It'll provide them with information and guidance neces-
sary to grow their business. We understand that navigating the labyrinth of food regulations and co-packers and retailers can be very difficult," he said. "We hope to be able to provide guidance for those small businesses."
WHAT: Georgia Grown Symposium WHEN: April 22 WHERE: Georgia National Fairgrounds, Perry COST: $50 plus processing fee
Discounts available and will be emailed to Georgia Grown members individually REGISTER: MORE INFO: Contact Matthew Kulinski at or 404-656-3680.

FARMER: Winner dedicated to crops, food safety
From Page 1

Brain Tankersley, Tift County Extension Coordinator, nominated Grimes for the award.
"Mr. Grimes has been noted for his excellent yields. He always grows real good quality produce and quality products that he sells," Tankersley said. "Each year the [University of Georgia] Peanut Team recognizes the top peanut achievement winners within the state. It's divided into districts. He's won that high peanut yield competition for over 15 years consecutively for the district and he has been a state winner."
Grimes is the second Tift County farmer to be selected as Georgia Farmer of the Year. The first was Bill Brim of Lewis Taylor Farms in 2009.
"I would like to extend my sincere congratulations to Philip Grimes and his family on this outstanding achievement. We're very grateful for the positive impact that Philip

has on our industry," Georgia Commissioner of Agriculture Gary W. Black said.
Docia Farms' produce is distributed to major retailers include Kroger, Food Lion and Wal-Mart, Grimes said. These retailers require producers to have a strong commitment to food safety standards, which Grimes takes seriously.
"We scored a couple of 100s last year and mid-90s [on food safety audits]," he said. "We try to do everything, we don't want anybody getting sick off of fruit."
Even though it's hard work Grimes said he'll regularly spend 80 to 100 hours per week farming he has no problem dedicating himself to his fields.
"I just love to farm. I'm passionate about my crops," he said. "I like the feeling of doing my part growing food for the country and feeding the countries of the world."

Mama's big pot vegetable soup

Spring comes in the garden and in the gutter

Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away. For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land. The fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.
-- Song of Songs 2:10b-13. During my fourth semester of Biblical Hebrew in college, I asked to study the Song of Songs, also known as the Song of Solomon. I chose it because it is one of the Bible's poetry books and is filled with references to gardens, flowers and nature. I was the only student in the class. During some of the warm days that spring, the professor and I took our books outside and worked under the flowering crabapples where mourning doves often nested. The "turtle" in the verse above does not refer to the shelled reptile, but is an archaic word for turtledove. We do not have the biblical turtledove in America, although we do have mourning doves, which James Audubon called "Carolina Turtle-doves." I wish Audubon's name had stuck, but its plaintive call was too defining a characteristic to ignore, and the bird became known as the mourning dove. In late February a pair of mourning doves began nesting in the gutter of my neighbor's house. It seemed a more appropriate nesting spot for ducks than doves, but at least they built at the end of the gutter away from the down spout and where only a portion of the water dripping off the roof would hit them. The site affords a

near perfect view from my kitchen window where I can watch the birds without disturbing them.
The birds appeared stoic as the rain from the roof dripped down on them. Male and female mourning doves look similar and both sit on the nest and tend to the young. Last Saturday I spied two nestlings. Feeding time looks like a battle with the young seemingly attacking their parents and diving down their throats to get the nutritious crop milk both adults produce.
The young look like awkward little gray monsters compared to the sleek and subtly beautiful parents. Adult mourning doves are buff to grayish brown with black spots on the wings and black-bordered white tips to the tail feathers. There is also an opalescent sheen on the back and breast that is more prominent on the male. Anyway, the squabs are growing quickly and will soon be leaving the nest. They are my first nesters of the season, and, more than any date on the calendar, a true sign that spring is here. The passage above begins and ends with the exhortation to arise and come away. Spring is doing that to me, luring me to leave this desk and go experience the wonders unfolding in woods, fields, gardens and gutters. I think I will go answer its call.

He is a lifelong gardener and a horticulture graduate of North Carolina State University who encourages everyone to discover the pleasures of plants and gardening.

FLAVOR: Product shows pride for Georgia-grown cheesemaking
From Page 1
much that new categories were added this year. "We added beverages and we also added adult beverages
this year," Kane said. "We also separated one category into two we used to have just marinades and sauces and we separated that into different types of sauces."
Additional categories include dairy products, snacks, confections, jams and jellies, marinades and sauces, barbecue and hot sauce, meat and seafood, condiments, beverages, adult beverages and miscellaneous.
Finalists are selected from the first judging, and the final judging is held the night before Ag Day at the Capitol. Criteria include a Georgia theme, taste, commercial appeal and use of local ingredients.
Part of the final judging is displaying the product in both a raw form and in a presentation form. For example, a barbecue sauce would be displayed as the sauce itself and then as sauce on a piece of chicken, Young said. In his case, the cheddar was presented in both a 3-month age and 10-month age form.
As the overall winner, as well as the dairy product winner, Young received commemorative engraved cutting boards, marketing assistance and an expenses-paid booth at the Georgia Food Industry Association annual meeting later this year. All finalists also get to use the Flavor of Georgia logo on their packaging and marketing materials too, and there are additional opportunities to be featured at grocery stores, Kane said.
And every company that enters Flavor of Georgia, whether it wins or not, gets featured in a directory distributed to the public and those in the food business.
"We've been following up with past winners, and we have had some good results," she said. "About 90 percent of them say their publicity and exposure have increased just from entering the contest."
In fact, Wolfe said, there are products from the Flavor of Georgia contest sold in all 50 states.
Young advises future contestants, no matter if they want to use the contest to grow their farm or just to raise awareness, to consider what they'll bring to the table.
"How can you take your category award, if you win that, or grand champion how can you take that torch, if you will, and go out and promote Georgia agriculture if you're awarded that opportunity?" he said.
