Who We Are

John and April are married and live on an organic farm in Junction City, Oregon, where they grow lavender and Christmas Trees.  John has lived in Oregon since attending Reed College in 1984.  April is a former glass and metal artist and school teacher.  Before becoming an attorney in 2006, John was the Research and Education Director for Oregon Tilth, advocating for the organic food industry.  Both April and John grew up in California (a long long time ago).  

What we love

Together John and April have five children, two dogs, and four cats, and one grandchild (Lumi).  They love everything Oregon has to offer from the outdoors to great food, golf, motorcycle riding, and yes, April likes to read tarot cards.  Our children, Summer, Rowan, Samara, Dianna, and Stella are students and launching into their own professional careers in law, dentistry, therapy, and marijuana sales.  They are a colorful reflection of Oregon's diverse opportunities.  The dogs, well, they like to run on the farm and generally fall short in their duty to protect the chickens.  The cats  made me promise not to mention them in other than the broadest terms.
