Deer Creek Herbs & Teas is a start-up company founded by Susan Randall and Mark Sanderson upon their retirement from work in the human services and education fields. The name derives from the Creek which snakes in curves and half-circles east to west through their 80 acre farm north of Aurora, South Dakota. The Creek carries water from Lake Hendricks, Minnesota to the Sioux River in eastern South Dakota.
Mark and Susan are influenced by a tradition of family farming that goes back four generations to homesteading on the prairie.
Their core values are to:
–Provide FRESH, HIGH QUALITY produce grown LOCALLY.
–Utilize growing methods that are sustainable and respectful of the environment.
–Conduct business with integrity, respect, and fair treatment.
