Candler County | Metter: Everything’s Better Here
Agricultural innovations, high-speed internet and downtown revitalization
“It’s hardly a surprise that things are growing in Metter and Candler County. It’s a rural area. But in addition to the row crops, livestock and even hemp that you’ll find here, you’ll also discover a crop of innovation just taking root.
Barely a year out of the gate, the Georgia Grown Innovation Center (GGIC) represents a unique partnership among the city of Metter, the Georgia Department of Agriculture’s Georgia Grown Program and Georgia Southern University in nearby Bulloch County. The GGIC serves as an incubator for new agricultural businesses and the ag-adjacent companies that support them.
