The Georgia Land & Cattle story: Daniel Merritt, a Major in the United States Army Reserve with 15 Years of service in The Army. He served in Iraq and Afghanistan and after his last deployment he left the Active army in 2013. After leaving active duty he co-Founded Nine Line Apparel and helped grow Nine Line into an amazing Veteran Owned Brand with the worlds best employees (The “Barks & Brews” event is being held at a Nine Line Apparel location). Recently Daniel and his wife Sarah decided to start another amazing brand in a completely different field. They wanted to create a company that was near and dear to their hearts and represented our lifestyle. The result was Georgia Land & Cattle 'A Southern Lifestyle Company" to support Local Farms, Local Businesses, and Local People here in the Coastal Georgia Area. Daniel says, “I think you will find that we have just the right gift for just about any occasion, for just about anyone you can think of. Even those friends and family who are impossible to shop for, we have you covered.” From Grass Fed Filet Mignon, to Savannah Southern Honey Roasted Coffee, to Home Decor Items made from the finest Southern Pine, we think we can make an impression that will last forever.
