With acres of rolling hills surrounding Barnsley Gardens Resort, growing fresh vegetables and
herbs is as natural as the tall Georgia pines. The kitchen gardens change throughout the year, so
what is in the ground that morning might be on the plate in the evening, hand-picked by the chefs
to tempt guests with the freshest tastes of the season. Additionally, the menus deliver a taste of
Georgia at its best thanks to relationships with local farmers, foragers, and producers.
