Bayou Gourd Farm is located in LOUISIANA on eight acres in the central part of the beautiful Bayou State.  The farm is owned and operated by Tom and Zelda Hornsby.  Our interest in gourds started around 1997 and it has been a labor of love ever since.  Bayou Gourd Farm is a small family operation.   Our children are all grown with families of their own but they and our grandchildren never fail to help out.  We are truly blessed by our creator in more ways than we can express.

Zelda is the artist and truly has a talent sharpened day in and day out.  She has attended many of the painting, wood burning and chip carving classes offered at the various gourd society shows.   Zelda has displayed her work in many states as well as on our web site and has been featured in several local papers.  When not busy on the farm or working on her own creations, Zelda conducts classes and judges at shows and festivals throughout the United States.

Tom is the lucky one; he gets to drive the tractor and help market the gourds.  I have a great time at gourd shows visiting and mingling with many wonderful people.  I love to talk gourds with anyone who has the slightest interest in them.  It is an added bonus when you can help them find just that perfect gourd, see them smile and see the satisfaction on their face. 

Thank you for taking time to visit our web site.  We look forward to providing you with the highest quality gourds and gourd crafting products.  Take care and may GOD BLESS YOU AND YOURS.
