New Farm - Order Your Fresh Eggs Now!


Greetings from Sandra at Melody Lane Co-Op. I can’t believe it’s been over a year since our last group order. A lot has changed in that time!

I started the co-op in 2011 as part of my quest for healthy food. The best way to make it affordable was to bring many families together to share in the cost of supporting local agriculture. While running the co-op I realized that my true calling was not to be the middle man. I wanted to be the source of good food rather than just a distributor. I decided to take a break from organizing group orders so that I could work towards my goal of owning my own farm. My sister also has a passion for this way of life so together we found a piece of land in Ball Ground, GA to become our farm. She lives at the farm and manages daily chores. I am at the farm several days a week but I still live in Roswell and can offer my home as a pick up location for our products.

This year we will have pasture-raised, soy-free, non-GMO eggs, chicken, and rabbit… but we need your help to get started. We have decided to use a CSA model to get our laying flock established and are now taking pre-orders for eggs. For more details and to sign up please visit this website.

We are starting out small but we are working towards being able to offer goat milk, pork, and honey as well. Follow us on Facebook for photos and updates on our progress.

Here is a short video showing the farm and explaining what we have been up to.

We look forward to providing our community with fresh local food.
