SWEET GEORGIA P'S was founded by Rebecca and Joe Pimentel as a dedicated effort to provide their daughter Georgia with the freshest, healthiest produce possible. After spending their twenties bouncing between Nantucket and the Beacon Hill neighborhood of Boston, Becca and Joe decided to return to Joeʼs hometown of Scituate. They purchased a farmhouse built in 1850 as the first move towards building their dream, and they quickly started to plan their farmyard.
The first addition was a chicken coop and 18 fuzzy little chicks. A small vegetable garden was another wonderful beginning that ﬁrst summer, and the harvest was spectacular! In the fall the farm gained three pregnant
Alpine goats. Five months later four kids were born, bringing the goat total to seven. Goat milk was plentiful for eight months and supply could not keep up with the demand. The vegetable gardens continued to expand along with the population of the farm.
The harvest of 2010 brought more than just vegetables: sweet Georgia P. was born. After the birth of their daughter, Becca and Joe realized that their family shouldnʼt be the only ones reaping the great rewards of their gardens and homestead. A thought became an idea, and grew into a philosophy: everyone should have access to truly local, fresh produce.
After planning all throughout a long and productive 2011-12 winter season, the couple has partnered with various organic farms in Massachusetts and is striving to make local, farm-fresh vegetables, eggs, and cheese available to the entire community by offering a CSA. They have also teamed up with local chefs to come up with delicious recipes featuring the tremendous bounty of vegetables from many of the various local farms.
In addition to simple recipes and delicious local produce, Becca and Joe are excited to provide an assortment of specialty products including fresh local seafood, local artisan cheeses, and a great variety of other seasonal items.
