    About the Author

    Terry Baker, founder and CEO of Baker Family Farms, learned early the value of hard work. He was a traditional Georgia row farmer, growing a mix of crops designed to keep bringing in enough to feed his growing family. But he was ambitious and his overwhelming drive to succeed led him to begin experimenting with different crops and new planting methods. Sons Joe and Richard made their way into the business and soon convinced their dad to try growing greens – turnips, collards, kale, the whole mixed bowl.
    Greens weren’t seen in the same light then as they are now. They were basically sustenance food for country folks. Nothing was known about their amazing nutritional and disease-fighting power.
    But Terry had faith in his sons. And when the Greens Revolution hit about 20 years ago, they were well-positioned to take advantage.
    Today, even though you can find them in grocery stores around the country, Baker Farms remains a true family business, headquartered in Norman Park, GA, that continues to grow and expand its operations while maintaining their original values.
