Our 1556 acre farm in Georgia must be viewed as the catalyst for the development of our sustainable food and fiber production system. Muhammad Farms is situated on a 1556 acre tract in Southwest Georgia redeemed by Minister Louis Farrakhan in 1995 for the Three Year Economic Program. It is part of a larger 4500 tract of land which the Honorable Elijah Muhammad purchased in the 1960’s.
Muhammad Farms stretches1.45 miles east to west and 2 miles from north to south. To get the size of the farm in perspective, the farm is as long as Central Park in New York City or the Mall in D.C. but three times as wide. It would cover 23 city blocks in one direction and 16 blocks in the other direction. Four college campuses the size of N.C. A&T in Greensboro, N.C. could comfortably fit into its perimeters. Its area would cover 1400 football fields.
