Ladybug Farms joined up with Chef Ryan Spruhan of the Lake Rabun Hotel to offer a Sweet Potato Fry Taste Test to 440 Rabun County Elementary students. Students tasted a baked sweet potato fry and then were asked to vote on if they would like to see that item on their lunch tray in the future. The feedback was an overwhelming YES! with several comments such as "I don't like sweet potatoes, but these are really good!" Earlier the morning of the taste test all the students at Rabun Elementary were shown a Video of Sweet Potato Digging at Ladybug Farms which you can watch athttp://youtu.be/AfpU85UFxKo The taste test was part of the Northeast Georgia Farm to School program sponsored by Georgia Organics.
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.
