About Metamorphosis Butterfly Farm

Rhonda Stephens


Rhonda Stephens, the owner of Metamorphosis Butterfly Farms, began raising butterflies in the mid-1990s as a hobby but it quickly became her passion. About that same period the butterfly release industry became popular and Rhonda realized there was an opportunity to make an income in the butterfly release industry. As a result she was able to transform her passion into a thriving business.

Since its inception the “hobby” that became the Metamorphosis Butterfly Farm has expanded greatly. They now provide their butterfly pupae to enclosed exhibits across the United States. Rhonda’s dedication and determination have been the driving force that has made Metamorphosis Butterfly Farm what it is today. Aside from butterflies Rhonda has many interests and skills. When not working on the farm she enjoys photography, metalsmithing, painting and spending time with her family.
