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.
