OUR STORY

     Our farm was started over nine generations ago, and is still in operation today. We are the oldest family farm in the state of Georgia that has been continuously farmed and owned by the same family for over 230 years. The farm was originally established in 1784 taking part in row cropping cotton, corn, and wheat.  It also had cattle, pig, and horses.

     During the early years of the farm, the main expansions were driven by selling horses during the war eras; from the Revolutionary War all the way until World War II. In the mid-1950’s, the family went primarily to row crops and cattle farmed by my granddaddy Beverly Sr and my father Beverly Pool Jr. Pool Family Farms was incorporated in 1983 and eventually become Pool Bros. Farm with the addition of myself, Caleb Pool, and my brothers, Nathan and Jacob Pool, joining in on the family business.

    With the passing of both my grandfather and father in 2006, I returned to the farm full time. After returning, I began growing fruit trees, and ornamental flowering trees and shrubs along with cattle, sheep, and show pigs. As a 2002 University of Georgia graduate from Warnell School of Forest Resources, and one class of nursery management, I used these resources as a driving force to expand the nursery from 1 acre the first year to 9 acres, 10 green houses, and 150 varieties of crops to date.
