Lloyd and Terri Craft have lived in the Big Horn Basin for the past 35 years. Lloyd, a third generation German farmer, was raised on the farm in Manderson and so it was only natural that he would become a farmer.
Terri was raised in Southern California and it was not natural that she would become a farmer! But together they have operated a farm since 1996. They sold their 365 acre farm in 2010 but retained leased acres and have continued to farm on a smaller scale. In 2012 they launched Lloyd Craft Farms CSA–successfully!
Our CSA garden is now 6 acres with two hoophouses, over 100 beds 60-393 feet long–most laid under plastic mulch–and water from a holding pond we built off the Hanover Canal that feeds our drip lines. When the water is not in the canal, we use Washakie Rural District water, run through a filter to remove the chlorine. We are not certified organic, but use organic practices on the farm–no synthetic pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers, but things approved for Organic certification (OMRI). We are transparent and can answer any questions you have on our practices and methods. We exercise care in the handling of your food–we believe in the importance of healthy soil for healthy plants for healthy bodies.
