About Us
Flora Bay Farm started by Courtney Smith (Farmer/Artist/Owner) and Steve Sawyer (Farm Advisor/Writer) in 2014. The micro-farm continues to grow, offering a diverse landscape of flowers, herbs, hops, fruits and vegetables grown with permaculture and bio-intensive practices. In 2017, Flora Bay Farm received the 'Certified Naturally Grown' certification. We do not use any chemicals or sprays and strive to help the farm to be pollinator friendly. Courtney and Steve's hope is to help increase the availability of local foods and further strengthen the ties of community to area farmers and producers. Courtney is on farm full-time and currently serves on the board of Food Works and Illinois Stewardship Alliance. In her spare time, Courtney herds cats, renovates small cottages and dabbles in the arts. Steve works off-farm at SIU and writes creative stories and screen plays.
