Founded by Terri Martin-Yates and Rick Yates, Foxfire Woods and Farm is named after the road on which it sits. However, foxfire also describes the luminescent glow of mushrooms or decomposing wood in dark forests. The goal for Foxfire Woods and Farm is to become a “light” in the community by offering field trips for school systems, homeschoolers, and other youth serving organizations. Foxfire hosts summer camps, birthday parties, and family farm days and partners with organizations to serve as a site for service projects and volunteer hours. Seasonal produce, fresh eggs, and raw honey produced in our hives is sold when available.
Terri and Rick hope to serve the North Georgia area by sharing Foxfire Woods and Farm in a variety of ways. Their ultimate goal is to teach about the importance of nature, healthy foods, physical activity, and social interaction on the ever-changing brain.
