Meet the Maker: Gayla's Grits and Georgia Olive Farms

Meet the Maker: Gayla's Grits and Georgia Olive Farms Olive Oil!

Birdie's Market and Catering has been boasting how awesome the artisan products that we carry from local producers are, but we wanted to go a step further. We have invited the folks who are MAKING the very products that have been exciting ya'll since we opened and are having them come here for an exclusive "meet and greet"!

How much can one family contribute to their community from their family farm? Well when your talking about the Shaws, you will see it is this power-duo who are making big waves for Georgia! Gayla’s coming to town to talk about their superb product, Gayla’s Grits and Kevin, her husband, will be down to talk about how they came about to producing Georgia’s very FIRST olive oil! 

If you have ever eaten grits from either Steel Magnolias or Birdie’s Market, we exclusively use Gayla’s Grits in our dishes because we are so in love with their creaminess and flavor that only Gayla and her family are able to produce. And if you’ve ever been into Birdie’s Market and tried Georgia Olive Farms Olive Oil, you’ll see why we offer their oil in a fusti, an Italian stainless steel tank, so that you can refill any of your olive oil bottles with their “green gold," never more than a trip to town for your favorite, local oil. 

Come learn how this amazing family is helping put Georgia even more on the map with their unique and delicious products, grown and processed right on their farm in Lakeland, Georgia and why we are so proud to offer their products on our menus and in the market. We’ll also be pouring Farmer Daughter’s Vineyards’ wines during the event while you munch on hor d’ouerves using their products. We want to show the versatility in using real grits in your meals, because they aren’t just for breakfast! :) We’ll also be highlighting foods to elevate the clean and green taste that the Shaws’ oil is famous for and some cheeses to enhance nuances in flavor and notes.
