Meet Your Farmers
With backgrounds in education, farming, and community organizing, E.A.T. South’s small but talented staff welcomes you and your group to our farm. Come learn with us!
Caylor grew up in Troy and is returning after many years in Oregon where she worked with community organizations, farmed and helped farmers market their produce. She's readjusting to the Alabama heat, but is excited to connect with our community around good food and gardening. Caylor leads volunteer work parties, teaches Farm in the City classes, helps out with field trips and takes care of the day-to-day needs of the farm, the cat and our chickens and ducks. She says the ducks are her favorites, but don’t tell the chickens.
Amanda has worked in many parts of the food system - from growing vegetables to raising poultry to cooking and marketing. Now she’s applying that experience to educating young people about food and farms. Amanda has her Bachelor's degree in Environmental Science and studied ecology at Whittier College, California and the School of International Training in Quito, Ecuador. She conducted field research in Tana River, Kenya. While living in Alabama, she has begun to reconnect with her southern roots. She enjoys meeting new people at art shows and farmers markets.
