Oral Histories

The SFA oral history program documents life stories from the American South. Collecting these stories, we honor the people whose labor defines the region. If you would like to contribute to SFA’s oral history collections, please send your ideas for oral history along with your CV or Resume and a portfolio of prior oral history work to annemarie@southernfoodways.org.

ORAL HISTORY

EliYahu Ben Asa


Atlanta Harvest

EliYahu Ben Asa discusses how his family came to farm in Georgia, intentionally forging a path for themselves that would be as self-sustaining and close to the earth as possible. He discusses how personally fulfilling growing their own food is for him and for his family. 2020 was a year of tremendous change for the Atlanta Harvest farming operation, both related to the pandemic and even outside of it. He talks about how he and his family take care of their own health, and how they changed working different markets to adapt to consumer needs.
