great day [greyt dey]

  1. A beautiful or otherwise pleasant time between sunrise and sunset. It was a great day to be pickin’ ‘maters in the garden.
  2. An exclamation of surprise or awe. “Greeeeeat day! Look at those ‘maters!”


Husband and wife Michael Grantz and Arden Jones met in school at Sewanee: The University of the South, where they graduated in 2013. Michael studied Environmental Policy and Arden studied Natural Resources and the Environment. After doing multiple farm internships in Virginia and Tennessee where they learned about all aspects of sustainable farming, they founded Great Day Gardens in the fall of 2014.  The farm was named in memory of Richard (Dick) Logwood, who had many colorful ways of expressing his joy for his family and grandchildren.
