About Us

Harvest on Main

With a nationally recognized chef at the helm, our mission is to serve the best quality ingredients we can find. Our menu is globally influenced with a southern twang. We are proud of our local farmers and suppliers. We use seasonal products whenever possible supporting our local economy, farmer and artisan. Producers include our own production from The Cook’s Farm, Logan Turnpike Mill, Mercier Orchards, Brasstown Beef,Bramlett Trout Farm, Foster’s Produce, The Chef’s Garden, and other small local producers. We work diligently to grow this list of providers every season.

Harvest’s Founders: Danny Mellman and Michelle Moran

Danny’s modesty shines through his successes. A self-taught culinary sensation, Danny honed his skills in England, France and Italy. After returning to the states, he became Executive Chef of The Mad Batter in Cape May, New Jersey where his use of game and wild herbs garnered national accolades for creativity. In 1988, Danny headed south to Captiva Island where he opened The Greenhouse Grill, spending 25 years in Florida before joining the ranks of “half-backs” settling in North Georgia with his partner (writer and farm director) Michelle Moran.

The Cook’s Farm

We created the farm for production of our specialty produce, adding chickens and bees for egg and honey production, respectively.
