We’re Tony and Deloris Jones, and we are the proud owners of Chulahoma’s Garden, a 100% black owned, family run farm. We grow vegetables throughout the season which are available beginning in May with a large variety of produce throughout the summer and early Fall and finishing up with a variety of greens through December.
We specialize in leafy greens of all varieties, lettuce, squash and peppers, both hot and bell.
While we are not a certified organic farm, we are currently using the following water, soil and land conservation methods: high tunnels with drip irrigation, plastic mulching, no harmful pesticides or herbicides and have a pollinator habitat. We are currently working toward making our practices more sustainable every day.

We pour our heart and soul into our farm. This is a passion of ours to be able to grow what we eat. We started from bare bones and we are building and learning day by day. Chulahoma's Garden products will not only be great natural products but it will be beneficial to your body. This is just the beginning.
What makes us most proud of producing Genuine MS products?
What make me most proud about producing Genuine MS products is we know exactly where the produce comes from. We know is it home grown, good for you and a much healthier options than any processed food or ingredient. We at Chulahoma's Garden take the time to gain the knowledge and understanding to produce the best products we can. We make sure you get the best of what is need to be a healthier you. Producing Genuine MS products will also help with community to have someone local to get fresh produce from.
How does buying Genuine MS products make a difference here in Mississippi?
Rural Mississippi is a food desert with very limited access to supermarkets with fresh produce. Investing in local growers will not only increase fresh, local food sales direct to Mississippi families, but it will help to sustain the business of local growers, enabling us to continue to be a resource for consumption of local, fresh produce for years to come.
Buying Genuine MS products has a proven economic impact on African American owned, small holder farmers in the Mississippi Delta, enabling more sustained small agriculture and low-pesticide farming to continue as part of the full Ag industry in the region, an effort where few organizations are truly focusing investment.
Why should people seek out and buy Genuine MS products?
Anyone who wants to support sustained small agriculture, particularly black owned and operated farms should seek out Genuine MS products, that includes any buyers who are truly invested in either consuming themselves or providing easier access to fresh and locally grown food.
