About Us / Bambi's Organic Country Farm, LLC History: I began as a Macrobiotic Chef in Philadelphia, in 1991with a Personal Catering Service, then worked at a Vegetarian Health Spa in Pompano Beach, giving cooking classes and intensives for the attendees, then worked for Whole Foods Market in the Marketing Dept., scheduling events, cooking classes and Gluten free tours. I then worked with children in Miami teaching them about Vegetables, Fruits included cooking classes, which led to a small garden at their schools. I found myself enlivened as did the children while digging in the soil and planting a garden and decided to study Permaculture and became a Farmer Apprentice in Homestead for 6 months with Earth Learning. After my apprenticeship my husband and I moved to North Florida in 2012 and began planting Fruit Trees-apples, peaches, pears, plums, figs, tangerines, blueberries and started alley-cropping with rows of veggies between the fruit trees and three years later I am growing Vegetables and Fruits all year round. The most difficult part is getting started. Studying this new piece of land. Designing where things will be planted, what kind of structures you will need for harvesting, washing, refrigeration. Keeping all out of the sun in the process. The not knowing how much it will cost or how long it will take to be able to break even and or make a profit. Keeping true to as little heavy equipment as possible on this land, keep soil as healthy as possible, for the next generation moving in, leaving perrenials, fruits and food for the next generation. This has been an amazing adventure to beautify a piece of land with food and oxygen. I give group tours for a nominal fee with both children and adults. I will also design a hands on cooking class following the tour so attendees will have a chance to prepare a quick and healthy meal for themselves. I intend to have our farm be available for group parties and events in the near future. We will also hold Farm to Family brunches on our wrap around porch.
