Meet Nakita

A mother, farmer, entrepreneur and Georgia native.

Nakita Hemingway is an entrepreneur, political leader, realtor and cut-flower farmer. Now, she’s running to be Georgia's next Commissioner of Agriculture to ensure our agricultural legacy becomes our launch point toward a future where we all thrive.

 

This Georgia native is a married mother of four and resides in Dacula, GA with her family where she farms and maintains a small real estate practice. She attended Georgia State University where she majored in real estate and also has a degree in Finance from American Intercontinental University.  

 

Hemingway is an active member in the Democratic Party of Georgia, the Federation of Democratic Women, the Georgia Farm Bureau, the Association of Specialty Cut Flower Growers, Women in Agribusiness, the Federation of Southern Cooperatives and Land Trust, the National Association of Realtors, and she serves on the board of Open Arms Group, a non-profit organization dedicated to serving the needs of women and children in underserved communities. 

 

In 2020, Nakita came just 779 votes shy of unseating the 3-term Republican Incumbent in Georgia House District 104. She credits being a realtor-turned farmer, and recognizing the unique challenges farmers and landowners around this state face in protecting their land and in opportunities to expand their farming practices. 

 

Nakita believes that under the right leadership, Georgia can create a better future for every farmer and person who calls Georgia home.
