Lavender Farm Love Story
After five plus years of singledom, Deb got serious with this guy. Deb and Bix met years ago during an M.F.A. Creative Writing program in Maine. They reconnected in the spring of 2015 at a writing conference. True love ensued.
Deb's other great love, son, Lincoln is graduating from high school this spring. Freed from full-time Mom duties, she has been convinced, by Bix, to move to St. Paul, Minnesota after lavender season this year for part of the year.* Yes, yes....the snow bird is flying the wrong direction! Bix is a writer, filmmaker and recently started a small press. Deb is looking forward to having more time for her writing. In fact, she is in the process of writing a memoir about the journey beginning in 2002, starting and growing the successful lavender farm business with her mother, Edie. And then meandering through the ups and downs along the way....right up to Bix. She will keep you posted on a publishing date.
*Don't fret....lavender season will live on. Deb will host the lavender season every year. What will change is that as of early May, there will no longer be sales of our products through the website. So if you aren't going to make the season you might want to stock up now. Also, our presence at Messick's Farm Market will be enhanced and you will be able to find most of your favorite products there anytime they are open. AND, Deb will be returning quarterly (say late September, mid-December and March) and will be opening up the shop for a week at a time so those of you who enjoy checking out the shop can drop over. She will give you plenty of head's up through newsletters, the facebook page and the web-site.
