Hi! We’re the Cameron Family.
Returning generation farmers, stewarding the land and cultivating community.
2009 unofficially marked the start of our “journery of rediscovery” into farming, a journey that has never been business as usual. As friends, neighbors, colleagues, and clients alike became increasingly supportive of our stories from the farm, they began to share their own unique food-farm stories and histories, as well as their time, and energies in support of what we had begun. We quickly became engaged in a restorative-healing approach to land and food — one that honors the interconnectedness of us all. We officially started cultivating the land in 2014, regenerating the soil. We became students of permaculture, agroecology, and indigenous practices, incorporating ancestral knowledge and traditional wisdom into our lives, throughout soil, field, kitchen, and pantry. We soon began offering cultural, educational, and restorative experiences, in the form of tours, stays, workshops, classes, and other events. Today, our programs are designed to help individuals and families experience for the first time or reconnect with the land, and practice land-based skills while providing a space for healing and transformation and strengthening relationships with others.

I fell in love with computers when I was introduced to the Commodore 64 in high school. Now, after all these years, I am looking at different parts of the farm and how I can integrate technology into our day to day activities. There’s also my love of photography. Today my subjects are our animals and life on the farm. My camera is my lens to document and tell our stories. When I have down time I love watching action movies which include Sci-fi and Kung-Fu and basically anything that explodes.
I am the Lead Cultivator of the farm. I provide much of the creative vision for the farm, our programs, and our community engagement. From sowing indigenous, heirloom crops to exploring Black agrarianism, and ancestral arts, I look to foster growth wherever I can. Whenever I’m not weeding a bed, seeding a tray, or administering care to one of our animals, I am working with the fiber from our lovely rabbits and sheep. Reaching into the historic and cultural roots of spinning and fiber work fuels a unique passion to weave and create our own stories and share them with our community.
Couples in Farming: Warren and Keisha Cameron
“This episode is one part of a two-part series about couples who farm together. Matthew is intimately familiar with the dynamics of building a life and stewarding the land with your significant other. In this episode and the next, he seeks out stories and advice from others. This week he talks to Warren and Keisha Cameron from High Hog Farm in Grayson, Georgia. This couple met on a dare and a few years later were presented with the opportunity for a fresh start when they fixed up a homestead and created a farm, which now primarily focuses on raising livestock for fiber.”
