    I was asked to create a logo and brand for Griffin's, a farm in North Carolina, and this is what I came up with. Here is a little about Griffin's Flat Broke Farms to see the connection between the logo and the company. Over 90 years old, Flat Broke Farms got its name from farmer Rupert Griffin. Used to plowing fields with mules, he proclaimed the land "flat broke" after using his new tractor for the first time. Flat broke became a term used on the farm to mean a field that was plowed to perfection - smooth with no extreme furrows or ripples. Flat Broke Farms transitioned from a tobacco farm in the 70's to a cattle ranch to a working vegetable farm eight years ago. John Griffin, a fourth generation farmer, installed the greenhouse 3 years ago to insure better quality of the plants. All the plants grown at Flat Broke Farms are grown from seed that has either been saved from year to year or has been grown by certified growers. Flat Broke Farms supplies its naturally grown vegetables to local restaurants and other local retail outlets. Young plants are offered for sale in the spring and produce boxes in the summer and fall.
