Why Athena Farms

About Us

Athena Farms is a wholesale distributor of quality produce, fresh cut proteins, dairy, and more. We have proudly served the foodservice needs of Atlanta’s premier restaurants, caterers, hotels and country clubs since 1997. Athena Farms blends high-quality products, enhanced food safety practices, and outstanding customer service to consistently deliver our customers everything they need to succeed.

Our Service

Athena Farms delivers 6 days a week, including an AM/PM run each day, to make sure we are always delivering fresh. We service a 50-mile radius from the center of Atlanta every day except Sunday. Daily checks on quality control are routine, and a team member monitors each delivery window to confirm every order gets out on-time.


Our Team

At Athena Farms, our experienced team of produce experts listen to your needs and work for you. Our drivers, thoroughly trained on recognizing high-quality products, hand-select your produce from one of the largest and best supplied markets in the southeast. We make sure the employee pulling your order understands your exact preferences so you can deliver delicious meals with confidence. Sales representatives are just a phone call, text, or email away, often stopping by for visits and frequently checking on your satisfaction.


Our Difference

Our commitment to fresh starts with quality products. We source the best locally grown fruits and vegetables in season, while our close proximity to the airport opens up the opportunity to utilize the fresh food markets in Los Angeles and Miami.

An uninterrupted cold chain helps us keep our produce fresh from the fields all the way to your kitchen. Our warehouse features state-of-the-art, temperature-controlled coolers, and we cool our fleet of refrigerated trucks to 36 degrees before loading any orders.

Athena Farms constantly rotates stock and receives new products daily to guarantee every delivery is fresh. We carry “just in time” processed goods, such as braising mix, green leaf fillets, and whole peeled potatoes, that are prepared to order by a local processor within 24 hours of delivery.

Fresh products, specialty produce, and outstanding customer service… it is who we are at Athena Farms.


Atlanta’s Solution for Specialty Produce

As Atlanta’s premier produce distributor, the focus at Athena Farms goes beyond essential commodities such as potatoes, lettuce, onions, and tomatoes. We source specialty items to ensure we fulfill the produce needs of every customer. Purchased locally grown when available, specialty produce provides an opportunity to offer unique menu items that can help operators capitalize on the latest trends.

Specialty produce is key for innovative appetizers, new dishes, and dinner specials that can be sold on your menu at a premium price, especially with the growing popularity of plant-based eating.

Examples of our specialty produce include:
