Been hard at work on a passive solar sunspace to start the farm seedlings. Oriented to the South and protected from the Northwest winds, the space has a gravel floor and several 50 gallon water barrels to collect daytime heat and release at night and includes a wall of doubled paneled windows repurposed from the Clayton Habitat for Humanity Store to maximize sunlight. We held a small Blessing Ceremony on February 2 - in the midst of a snow storm! Ha - Mother Nature has a sense of humor :)
Hi. My name is Terri and I am the farmer at Ladybug Farms. I "did time" in the corporate world (13 years), left that to spend 8 years doing something I loved - garden design/installation - and then 10 years ago decided to do something I was passionate about - building community around nutritious, local food and the survival of small, family farms. For the last 10 years I have offered weekly produce delivery through a small CSA, at farmers markets in Clayton, and several restaurants including Fromage. After ten years of growing I am transitioning my farm to focus more on Education. Please consider attending Farm Camp or a Tinyhouse stay at the Farm. Thanks for visiting.
