Local Farm Spotlight: Frog Song Organics
Frog Song Organics is a 60-acre farm in Hawthorne, FL growing items such as radishes, leafy greens, okra, roselle, and sweet potatoes.
Co-founders John Bitter and Amy Van Scoik started Frog Song Organics in the fall of 2011. Their mission was to produce nutritious food for their community and create meaningful employment opportunities. They also aim to demonstrate that farming can be accomplished with the “triple bottom line” – with respect to their human, ecological, and economic resources.
To get off the ground, they started paying volunteers in food.
