Megan Grinwald is one of Deer Creek Seed’s Customer Service Specialist. She started with the company in September of 2019, partnering with Steve Van Lysel as new heads of the Customer Service Team.
Prior to Deer Creek Seed, Megan graduated from Madison Media Institute with an Associate’s Degree of Science, coming from a background of art, design, and technical computer skills and applications. Since graduating in 2013, Megan found her real passion of becoming a modern-day homesteader. Megan enjoys working with heirloom varieties in her home garden, learning methods of self-reliance, and taking care of the earth. With such an array of skills, motivation, and knowledge, she is growing with our customers and with Deer Creek Seed as a whole.
Megan believes that Deer Creek Seed is special because we are a committed small family business with talented individuals, with diverse and knowledgeable backgrounds. Deer Creek Seed ensures we answer your questions promptly and attentively. Deer Creek Seed wants to be the seed company that works with you to ensure your success. She takes pride in Deer Creek Seed’s commitment to the you, and to the seeds themselves. She believes in Deer Creek Seed because we believe seeds are our way of life.
Megan’s favorite seeds include cover crops, because when they are managed correctly, can impact the soil and feed the “microbe herd”, as she likes to call them. In turn, we give life back to the earth, and the earth returns the favor with a bountiful harvest to reap. She believes cover crops are the most innovative seed we carry and believes that these varieties help pave the way for sustainable, regenerative agriculture.
Outside of work, Megan enjoys spending time with her family, her two dogs, and her garden. For the past few years, she is turning her acre of land into a mini farm. Equipped with hands tools and hard labor, she loves to dig into the dirt, grow food for her family, save seeds, and dabble in plant breeding. She also enjoys scything (yes, with an old-fashioned scythe!), whether it be grass, hay, lawn, or weeds. In the calm cold winter months, she enjoys playing and creating videogames, drinking hot cocoa, and reading seed catalogs preparing for the spring thaw.
