Humphries' Homegrown is a one woman owned and operated fruit & vegetable market garden that works towards producing delicious fresh produce and sharing sustainable living knowledge with the members of Florida's capital city community.
The owner, Norma Humphries, was born and raised in Wakulla County, just a mile down the road from the Wakulla Springs State Park. Always intrigued by nature, she spent a lot of time exploring the Wakulla State Forest. Through the years, she has fallen in love with nature and she lives her life in a way that she hopes will help preserve the environment around her.
She now lives in SE Leon county with her husband, Frank, two cats, Pantera and Zeppelin, and two rabbits, Jack and Diane. She realized her passion for cultivating food and community through working with the South City Community Garden in Tallahassee. She jumped into a garden manager position there pretty green, she knew the basics of planting and some of the science behind it but it was a very humbling experience where she learned more than she could have imagined.
Through that adventure, she discovered more about the beauty of growing food and more about herself as a person. She knew that she wanted to be her own boss from a very young age (she thanks her grandmother for her independence) and she knew that she wanted to continue growing food and working with her hands.
With her ambitions growing, she took the leap and started her own market garden business to create her own good food movement through Humphries’ Homegrown. She sowed the first seeds of her first independent growing season in the Winter of 2018. These seeds have been germinating, stretching their roots through the soil, and will eventually become food for the people in the Tallahassee area.
She strives to make the most of everything the great outdoors has to offer every day. The products you will find at Humphries' Homegrown are fresh from the field and tended to daily, so you can be sure you are buying the best quality produce.
