Our hunts are never focused on trophies or numbers, but rather a relaxed and considerate environment for our hunters, their guests, and the wildlife.

  • Beech Hollow Wildflower Farm

    1575 Elberton Road, Lexington, GA, USA .

    Beech Hollow farms is the culmination of a nearly decade long mission to save and propagate plants from the metro Atlanta area threatened by development and invasive species. The original idea was inspired by an area of southwest Atlanta strewn with large boulders and peppered with native plant species known locally as Boat Rock. Popular with rock climbers, the area had been mostly spared the developer’s bulldozer blade until the housing boom of the 1990’s and 2000’s slowly crept its way. The Southeast Climber’s Coalition (SCC) established a small woodland climbing preserve in 2002, but the surrounding area was still subject to the whims of land developers.
