Atlanta girl becomes youngest USDA certified farmer in Georgia

At 6 years old, Kendall Rae Johnson has already made history as the youngest USDA certified farmer in Georgia, reports “Good Morning America.”

In order to become a certified farmer, Kendall received her business entity at the state and federal level under the name “aGROWKulture.” She also joined a number of farming organizations, including Georgia Grown, a division of Georgia’s Department of Agriculture, and the Georgia Farm Bureau. As an official farmer, she can apply to grants, scholarships and purchase land under her business.

Kendall first caught her green thumb from her great-grandmother Laura “Kate” Williams. From there, she continued to show interest, moving on to grow everything from carrots to okra, squash, zucchini and strawberries.
