—  Meet Your Farmers  —


In 1994, Deb Lyda retired early from Bell South and returned to help run the farm. She used to run educational tours at the farm, but now focuses on marketing.

Dr. Sonna Lyda, former Superintendent of Transylvania County Schools, retired in June 2009 after 37 years of service in the school system. Sonna works with Deb and Jeff to keep the farm operating and also helps Deb part-time at the roadside market.


Jeff Lyda works behind the scenes, keeping all the farm equipment serviced and ready for action. The many acres of vegetables require his attention to get them irrigated, fertilized, plowed, planted and harvested.
