The lavender was as far as the eye could see, and the nose could smell. 

Brian was new in town and had just gotten a job working as a field hand in the lavender fields, the main tourist trap for the entire county. People came from far and wide to see the plants and buy the products made from the fragrant flowers.

But Brian didn’t really care about that. It was a good steady job until the season ended. Then he’d look for something else. 

But then something, or rather, someone, caught is eye. 

Lizzy was the driving force behind the entire place. The farm was the life long dream of Lizzy’s Momma. It finally came to fruition just 2 short years before Momma had passed away from an illness.

Lizzy’s father had wanted to sell the place. It reminded him of her too much. Lizzy begged him not to and finally won out. But he left all the management to Lizzy. At just 19 years old, she was ill-equipped to run a farm and a business but she was determined to make it work.

And that’s just one of the things Brian was drawn to. Lizzy was so much more than the college co-eds Brian went to school with even if she was a year or two younger. She took charge of her life and blamed no one for her situation. 

“Yes,” Brian thought to himself. “I’m here to stay.”

The History

Pine Creek Canyon Lavender Farm (@pinelavenderfarm) is located in Pine, AZ. The farm was originally built by Alamay Moroni and Rosetta Hunt in the 1880s. And, although lavender is new to the farm, portions of the original farm still stand today.
