James T. Farmer, III is a Southern author, interior designer, and speaker known for his ability to create beautifully familiar and welcoming homes. To James, a home engages all of the senses - the pleasantries of colors and materials, the feel of the doorknob warmed by the sun, the smell of fresh laundry, the sound of the closing door, and the taste of supper on the table. Through his design firm, James works with clients to truly create a home.

James is the author of the Wall Street Journal best-selling books A Time to Plant; Sip & Savor; Porch Living; Wreaths For All Seasons; A Time To Cook; Dinner on the Grounds; A Time to Celebrate and A Place to Call Home. His most recent publication, Arriving Home, features design projects from the farmlands of Georgia to the rolling countryside of Connecticut.

In addition, his work has been published in various magazines including Southern Living, House Beautiful, Traditional Home, Southern Home, FLOWER and more. As a frequent event speaker and guest, James’s natural grace and warm personality light up any room. Whether designing homes or sharing his gardening expertise, James Farmer is truly a fresh voice for his generation.

Born and raised in Georgia, James proudly has built his business in his hometown of Perry.
