Roastery/Coffee Tasting and Farm Tour: JavaGenesis and Fry Farm- RSVP

We will have a combo tour on Sunday, April 24th with JavaGenesis Coffee Roasting and Fry Farm since they are located very close to each other. The plan is to do the roastery tour at 1pm to 2:30 then caravan over to Fry Farm. We expect the tour to finish up around 5pm. Kids are welcome but please keep them supervised at both locations. This will be a fun event for the entire family! Feel free to invite friends and family. In order to get an idea of how many folks to expect we are asking that you RSVP. There is a RSVP listing on the market.

More details below:


Ever wonder how your cuppa joe makes it from the farm to your mug? Join us on Sunday, April 24 at 1pm to sip & learn.

We will fire up the roaster and show you the art and the science of coffee roasting. You'll see, hear and smell coffee transform from the green coffee beans to a delicious brew in your cup. We will share supply chain information of how our coffee makes it from the farms of Central and South America, Africa and Indonesia to our roastery. Then we will taste a selection of our coffees and pour a few espresso shots over ice cream!

Coffee is our passion and we want to share it with you! Come see us and 'Discover the Fresh Roast Difference'.

Come see how we grow great tasting Certified Naturally Grown produce on our farm that ends up at your table!

Our family has been gardening and growing food for decades, and our passion for producing and eating local, organically grown fruits and vegetables drove us to make our products available to you.

We will discuss and show you our growing practices from seed to harvest as you tour our farm. If time allows, we may have a little surprise for the kiddos at our lake – pole fishing… we'll provide the poles.
Location: Fry Farm, 590 Cross Ln NW Bethlehem, GA 30620

FACEBOOK – Opportunity to help!
Many of you have told me that you can't volunteer due to your work/family schedule and I completely understand. You've also asked what else can I do help out the co-op? Here's one way that will really help us out – if you are on Facebook or other social media please consider posting a pic of your co-op goodies! I have a very limited marketing budget and really depend on word of mouth advertising. Please feel free to spread the word about our wonderful market! Tag us @SuwaneeWholeLife
