Tehama & North State FARMS Coordinator
Stephanie Mills grew up in Corning, California, a small town located in Tehama County. She was raised on her parents' stone fruit orchards where she found her natural love and passion for agriculture. Once she started at Red Bluff High School she became heavily involved with FFA competing on various CDE and LDE teams as well as holding various officer positions. Her most notable experiences through FFA was being recognized as the Tehama County Young Farmer of the Year and earning her American Degree in 2021. She is currently attending California State University, Chico and is expected to graduate in the Fall of 2022 with a Degree in Agriculture Sciences and Education and a minor in Food Studies.
Stephanie was a member of both the Tehama County FARMS Leadership and Advanced FARMS Leadership programs during her time in high school. She is beyond excited to now be joining the Center for Land-Based Learning team as the Tehama and North State Farms Coordinator and having the opportunity to provide students with the same outstanding experiences she had through of this program.
During her free time Stephanie loves spending time with her family and friends, working in the orchards, selling fruit at farmers markets, going to country concerts and traveling across the states.
