Sophia Bugs, Owner and Operator of Lady Buggs Farm
•What is your fondest memory/favorite time of year/favorite task about farming?
I am discovering that late summer seems to be the time of year that I enjoy. During that time of year I tend to have more produce for all my markets and classes.
• Has it been viewed as more of a business for you, or a lifestyle choice? Some combination of the both?
My Urban Homestead is a lifestyle. The business part of it helps me to live out my life purpose, which is helping people to heal.
• How do you see your role in the community?
I am an essential part of my community. Food is the cornerstone of my business and the people I serve are eagerly returning back to their urban ag roots. Lady Buggs Farm is living proof that the land can provide the people with the tools needed to heal and restore their communities.
