Our favorite childhood memories are deeply rooted in the legacy Scott and I hope to leave at Lavender Rhapsody. We both grew up as farm kids, learning many of life’s most important lessons in a pair of muck boots. Although farm life was left behind as we began careers and families, returning to rural roots was a shared dream. Quoting Justin Isherwood, “The farm kid’s soul is a hard thing to shake.”
Blending lives in 2006, we were excited to find a place to get our hands in the dirt and watch a few sunsets from the porch. Thus, our rhapsody began when we purchased acreage in central Missouri. In discussions about what to raise or grow, a sustainable business supported by a natural lifestyle was at the top of our list. Inspired by a visit to an Oregon lavender farm, the lavender idea ‘took seed!’
Lavender Rhapsody, a tribute to our farming heritage, is located 45 minutes southeast of Jefferson City, Missouri. Whether you stroll the lavender field, or peruse our website, we hope to share a little of our rhapsody with you.
