The Blackstone Ranch & Apparel Story

Hi! I'm Melissa! I'm so excited you're here!

If you’re anything like me, you don’t want to be tied to a 9-5 job. I have always had an entrepreneurial spirit and love starting new things. I get bored with doing the same thing every day. So I knew having a typical “day job” would not work for me. So in 2015 I launched The Blackstone Ranch & Apparel, LLC. I come from a long line of farmers and ranchers that believe in Godly values, hard work and dedication. I continue that family tradition of hard work and integrity in all I do. Whether it's learning technology, training horses or even sewing. I have always believed that hard work pays off. I believe in quality products and our hand drawn original designs for everyday life. We tailor our designs for the country lifestyle in all of us. I design along side my mother, Ginger Epperson, and we work daily to bring new and fresh designs. My sister, Dee Dee Hernandez also helps me out with ideas and modeling along with our husbands and children. 

March 19,  2020 I launched Blackstone Wellness. Blackstone Wellness is my Independent Distributor site for It Works. It Works is a plant based health and wellness company. We have products for daily wellness, weight loss, cleanses, hair/skin health, a Keto line, and plant based skin care. 

I wanted to bring the whole family together to be more active and I needed a bigger range of apparel to make this happen. So May 1, 2020 I launched the Blackstone Activewear site. We strive to make activity a fun and essential part of life. 

I have been married 17 years to my wonderful husband, Brandon. We have three amazing children; Kalee, Stella and Ethan. My dream since I was a kid was to be married and be a stay at home mom. I’m fortunate to be able to live that dream. My goals now have shifted from living that dream to expanding it. At the top of my list is to bring my husband home with the success of these three businesses. I'm ready to plan that dream vacation. I'm ready to travel with our kids. I'm ready to be 100% debt free. I'm ready to give more than we've ever given before.
