DeBaggio's Herb Farm and Nursery, founded by Thomas DeBaggio in Arlington, VA in 1975 and now located in Chantilly, VA, is a celebration of herbs both classic and new — and the people who love them. DeBaggio wrote extensively for leading gardening and herb magazines, including The Herb Companion until diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease in 1999. He is also the author of Growing Herbs from Seed Cutting and Root: An Adventure in Small Miracles, and, with Susan Belsinger, The Basil Book: An Herb Lover's Guide. In 2000, DeBaggio passed his legacy on to his son, Francesco and wrote two books on his experiences with the early stages of his disease. He died in 2011.
