Owner info

Year Purchased: 1945

About the owner: I moved with my husband and my 4 daughters to this property in 1986. It is the home and farm on which I grew up. While my husband managed the farm, I worked as a Nurse Practitioner until I started my own business on the farm. My business was called Pipestem Creek. Along with several employees, we manufactured hand-made edible birdfeeders which we sold on the wholesale gift market. Our marketing success culminated in a TV segment with Martha Stewart. I am now retired with the exception of hosting weddings and reunions and other guests on the farm. We spend our winters on the South Texas coast. My passions are my family, birding, swimming, and nature in general, among other things.
