My husband's great-grandparents decided to invest in and start their family, farming, and ranching operation in Lompoc in the early 1900’s. The ranch was originally purchased by the family in 1938 and the Lazy F brand was established on May 3, 1948, by Fred Hayes, my husband's grandfather, and is still our current brand on our commercial cow/calf operation.

In 2008 we were given the opportunity to move into the original family ranch house and raise our children and it was an opportunity we have ever taken for granted. Some of my favorite memories are laughing around the table in the same dining room where my father-in-law once lived and bringing all the love we can into these walls. This ranch is a space that is near and dear to many people's hearts. Big Fred was passionate about this ranch and the agriculture industry and it is something he has passed on to all of us.

The “little red barn” is where I hosted my first Lazy F & Co. holiday pop-up. That pop-up was just a thought of doing something different! That idea was one generated around “that table” with friends and family. After many journal entries and lots of prayers for direction on what to do next, I received a phone call inviting me into a brick-and-mortar space, and here we are!

In the cattle branding world, the brand means lazy F due to the nature of it lying on its side. Because the ranch and Big Fred have a special place in my heart it seemed fitting. He was the biggest supporter of my wild and crazy ideas, and this one is right up there!

I believe we all have a need for connection and crave a space for just that. I wanted a place where everyone is welcome at the table and when you stopped in it felt a little like “home” at the same time providing another option for locals and visitors to shop for that “little something”

Grateful for the chance to curate a gift for you!
