From corporate life to niche farming – how did we get here!?
We moved from rural Alabama to Colorado to chase a corporate management position. It was a beautiful area right in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Loved it!
Sometimes life throws you a curve. The company outsourced their IT department – me and my team lost our jobs.
Relocated to Michigan
We decided to move back on this side of the Mississippi to get a little closer to family.
"Saw" a field of lavender
While house hunting, I saw a field of lavender where the previous owner had planted rye grass. Funny part is – it was the middle of winter and we had never thought of being lavender farmers.
