If Life Gives You Land, Grow Citrus

From the kitchen table to the boardroom table, USDA brings people together across the nation for: healthier food, natural resources, and people; a stronger agricultural industry; and economic growth, jobs, and innovation.

Each Friday, meet those farmers, producers, and landowners through our #FridaysOnTheFarm stories. Visit local farms, ranches, forests, and resource areas where USDA customers and partners do right and feed everyone.

This Friday, meet Lindy Savelle who spent three years of her 32-year career in federal law enforcement in Iraq and Afghanistan and wanted to find a new passion when she returned home.

That’s when Lindy discovered growing citrus, and how she and her husband could revitalize several farm properties in southwestern Georgia.
