About Dia Dean
Dia recently moved from a little farming community south of Little Rock, Arkansas to Dalhart. Here in the Panhandle, Dia continues to live the family farm mantra. Her father, husband and brother all work the farm together. They farm wheat, cattle and corn while Dia does the book keeping. She, her mother and sister-n-law cook for the guys and haul food to the field everyday! They all live in the same neighborhood and there isnít a day or night that they arenít all together cooking something! She says they associate love with food. The better and the more food you cook the more love there is.
