Love Local This Valentine's Day
With February comes the one holiday that many people love to hate and hate to love — Valentine’s Day. This year rather than giving your valentine the run of the mill chocolate and flower combo, give them the gift of a locally sourced product that you can feel good about giving and they will be thrilled to receive. Here are five Georgia Grown gifts to give your valentine (or family and friends) this year:
