Candy Traven


If Lloyd is the technological mastermind behind Peace Tree Farm, then certainly Candy is the heart of the operation. Her gift of a potted coleus to him early in their courtship was beginning of their journey together as growers.

Before they purchased Peace Tree Farm Candy managed a retail plant store in Philadelphia, worked as a plant breeder in the Department of Plant Breeding and Biometrics at Cornell University and as an interior plantscaper in Illinois. Candy is skilled in the art of creating container gardens and decorative elements such as topiaries. She convinced Lloyd that they should specialize in growing herbs.

As a result, Peace Tree Farm's production of herbs has grown from 5,000 plants in their first year to over 800,000 last year. Her sound instincts and steady hand on the business side of Peace Tree operations has helped the company remain strong through many seasons.

Lloyd and Candy are available for speaking engagements and seminars. Please contact us to make arrangements.
