Hello! My name is Tina Krehe (pronounced 'Cray') My husband farms walnuts, rice, wheat, and prunes in the Yuba-Sutter area in California so that makes me "The Farmer's Wife"! I wanted something I could call my own that allowed me to stay home with my five children. My love of gardening and herbs inspired me to start a home based business.
In 2003, I was driving by a lavender farm and it hit me! I could plant a lavender field next to our home and create wonderful lavender products. From goat's milk soaps and body butters, to lavender simple syrup, adding a touch of lavender to my products transports me back to that day driving by the beautiful lavender field and the scent in the air!
I'm also a lover of all things vintage and one day that same year, I came across a bolt of vintage oil cloth while shopping in a small shop in Truckee, California, fell in love and knew I had to make something out of it! The Farmer's Wife bags were born shortly thereafter!. Each bag is handmade to order in my hometown. I have designed many different bags out of oil cloth fabric for all our daily uses and the best part is they are easy to clean!
My company has grown each year, adding new products to our lavender line and new sizes and styles to our Farmer's Wife bags. My family helps in every aspect of my growing business, and inspire new designs and products and are always my first loves. I feel truly blessed to continue on this journey with all of them!
