In keeping with her passion of cooking with fresh and flavorful ingredients, Deb became a customer of Taste OVS in May 2012 and immediately started to follow them on Facebook. After seeing a post in March 2014 for a position at the Historic Downtown Fredericksburg store, Deb responded and was hired by the owners, George Farrar and Jan Davis. By October 2014, Deb was asked to manage the store, and so believed in the dedication to quality ingredients and products offered at Taste OVS. Jan and George began talking about retiring and approached Deb and Brian about purchasing the business, including the Culpeper store.
Deb and Brian became the new owners of Taste OVS on July 1, 2016 and as new business owners, committed to serving the highest quality olive oils, balsamic vinegars, spices, and pastas available in the community.
