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 split my time between Cabbagetown and my farm in NE Georgia. I "did time" in the corporate world (13 years), left that to spend 8 years doing something I loved - garden design/installation - and then 9 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 9 years I have offered weekly produce delivery through a small CSA in Cabbagetown and Clayton, at farmers markets in Clayton, and several restaurants including Fromage, Fortify and the Red Barn Cafe. Please check back periodically as things continue to grow at Ladybug Farms. Thanks for visiting.
