As our motto alludes, Holden Creek Farms has been, and continues to be a venture down the road less traveled… It has gone from a dream of a couple of young kids, to an experimental hobby, and has quickly become a fledgling business. It has been the result of many long days of hard work and late nights spent reading, researching, and planning. And we’ve had a lot of help along the way.
Patrick and Sarah (McClure) Burnett are natives of Gilmer County. They began dating in high school and have been married since 2001. Ollie made it a trio in 2004, and Ivy added some spice in 2009! The farm sits on 16 acres of its own and borders the McClure family farm which has been in Sarah’s family for several generations. As the name implies, the farm has frontage along Holden Creek. The farm started with just three dairy goats, a dog, and eight laying hens. It’s come a long way…
Patrick attended The University of Georgia and graduated with a BBA in Business Management. After 4 fun years in Athens, GA, he returned home to work in the family general contracting business focusing on commercial and industrial construction, which remains his 1st shift job. Farming was always a passion, and the economic downturn beginning in 2010 provided more time to invest in the farm.
Sarah’s educational background includes a Bachelors and Masters of Science from The University of Georgia specializing in nutrition. She became inspired by authors such as Michael Pollan, whose works have enhanced her feeling that our current industrialized food system is producing an unhealthy society. It is her desire to incorporate her knowledge of farming and nutrition to provide a truly healthy eating alternative that is beneficial for our body and the environment.
Their small family farm is a testament to values they hold dear and that have been passed down through the generations.....a love and respect for one another and a deep connection to the land and animals they care for.
