- ABOUT US -
Lauren Parente has always been drawn to good foods and has long been a label reader.
Once her children were born, she became very focused (okay, obsessive) about food.
She read and researched and scouted around. Only chemical free, unprocessed, whole foods
would do for these new little humans. The more she learned, the more Lauren felt sure
that this was the best way to feed their whole family.
One day, during the car ride from her friend the herbalist's home to her friend the baker's home, Lauren was overwhelmed with gratitude for the talented people in her life.
She felt so lucky to have all these quality products to nourish her family,
while everyone around her was complaining, "I just don't have time to
get around to all those places! I'll have to settle for the big grocery store."
You can probably guess what happened next.
An idea was born, and shared, and put into practice.
Today Lauren and her well-fed family are building connections in our community,
between passionate producers who are masters of their craft -
and busy, healthy families who cherish a well-sourced meal
and want to support the local economy and ecosystem.
Now people around them are saying instead,
"there's a Farmer at the Door!"
