Terry Penrose was the owner of a construction company when he met Gayle. After observing the operations and experiencing first hand the benefits of lavender, Terry and Gayle joined forces. Terry wound down the construction business and joined Gayle at the Lebec farm, then moved with her to the Forks, Washington farm. He works with Gayle in the fields, performs the repairs and maintenance on the machinery and is in charge of the distillation operations. Together, he and Gayle have developed the two farms into fully functioning, organically-based operations with over two thousand plants combined annually. Terry believes that farm life is amazing! He gets to build things and develop new ideas, as well as interact with nature. “Just watching the chickens is better for me than meditation”.
