Love on the Farm: Gavin & Lilly

Rooting Around: Our Farm Blog

In general, Gavin and Lilly did a lot of falling in love on the farm. Gavin lived on the farm and would travel to SF on weekends to see friends - and that's when he met Lilly. They were at a mutual friend’s birthday party where he offered her a Candystripe fig from the farm. One fig led to another, and they spent most of the party exchanging summer stories and dancing until the wee hours.

Soon she started making trips out to the farm for events, to harvest fresh veggies and fruits, cook, enjoy the natural beauty and hang out with Gavin's cousins - Noah, Thaddeus and Freeman, 2nd generation owners of Farm Fresh To You.

Gavin even convinced Lilly to help work at the farmers markets during her weekends on the farm.

They married on our Capay Organic farm in the farm house garden on a 107 degree July day. They celebrated with a reception held along an oak-tree and lavender-lined, grassy plateau overlooking fields of fruits and vegetables and nearby citrus and stone fruit orchards, and it couldn’t have been more perfect.

In 2017, they welcomed sweet baby Emile to the mix. They’re making their home in Detroit with Gavin in Medical School and Lilly working for sustainable food systems at the University of Michigan.
