Hungry Heart Farm and Dietary Consulting

Providing fresh, organically grown produce along with food-based dietary intervention

About

Hungry Heart Farm is a 1.5 acre Certified Organic vegetable operation and outdoor teaching kitchen in Clayton County on the south side of metro Atlanta. We operate on land generously leased from Decimal Place Farm, as well as a satellite plot in Fayetteville, Georgia which is owned by friends. The farm is run by Matthew Bagshaw and Christi Hansen, RDN, LD, as well as a handful of incredible staff members. We sell to restaurants in Atlanta and Decatur and through a  CSA partnership with our friends and mentors at Love is Love Farm. We broke ground in 2015 and our first production year was 2016. We are currently growing year round.

We are deeply grateful for all the love and support of our community, customers, employees, friends and partners who helped make farming a reality for us. We’re proud to be among the many great farms producing food for the Atlanta area.
