Ginger is an Arkansas native, raised on her family’s version of Old MacDonald’s farm with the usual dogs and cats, plus pigs, chickens, sheep, ducks, horses, beef and milk cows, a huge vegetable and flower garden, grape orchard and fruit trees.
She can herd, milk or rope a cow, make butter, dress a chicken, buck hay, sew up a tablecloth and make dinner for twenty at the drop of a hat.
Inspired by her mother, Earlene, co-founder/owner of the Sugar and Spice Catering, Cake and Candy Shop, Ginger learned to make twenty pie crusts at a time under her mom’s watchful eye. There was always someone who needed food – whether for a potluck, funeral, housewarming, or going home from the hospital. Pie was the perfect comfort food.
With a Harvard MBA and a track record of running businesses – one Fortune 500 and one Nasdaq 100 – she brings business savvy to a love of tradition and sharing through local, fresh, handmade food.
Ginger’s favorite pie? Earlene’s Strawberry Pie, a recipe from her mom.
