Rachael LaPorte

Healthy Farm Eating

Rachael LaPorte

Rachael LaPorte was raised on a self-sustaining family farm in Lebanon, Connecticut. “I grew up on a kitchen counter. No matter the season, we were making stew, canning and preserving. This was our family time,” she says. With these early influences, Rachael decided to pursue a culinary career, and graduated cum laude from Johnson and Wales University. After graduation, Rachael took time to travel the world, affording her the opportunity to work under many chefs with a variety of culinary expertise. Returning to Connecticut, she earned a master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Saint Joseph.

Rachael began to struggle with her own health and began a weight loss journey. She developed both a knowledge and a passion for healthy eating and wellness. The result? Rachael lost over 100 pounds! Rachael’s same eating principles are what fuel Healthy Farm Eating today and empower others with the tools to meet their own personal health goals!

Dragon's Blood Elixir

Doug Crane

Doug has been a hot sauce master for over 15 years and produces local artisan sauces using our community garden and products from over 10 local farms. This is Doug. He's the Master Alchemist. The Supreme Sauce Sommelier. The Chief Chef. He makes the sauce and runs the whole operation.

In the '80s, Doug was a travelling chef for touring metal bands. In the '90s, Doug was the head chef of a private intermediate school. In 2009, Doug started Dragon's Blood Elixir.

Doug's sauces are always honest; he never uses extracts or guar gum. Doug's sauces use local ingredients. We're talking seriously local…bring him a box of peppers from your backyard garden, and he'll make a sauce out of it for you.

Emily Puckett

Puckett's Pantry

Emily Puckett

Puckett's Pantry offers low-carb, ready-to-eat food in glass jars, made at the CLiCK Willimantic shared commercial kitchen. Although not originally from Connecticut, Emily Puckett is hoping to stay here forever in her 200 year old farm house in Storrs. She has found great success at managing her weight, IBS, and ADD through a low-carb, ketogenic diet.

When she started cooking ketogenic food for her mother, who suffers from the same ailments along with arthritis, she embraced the challenge of finding foods that would satisfy a die-hard foodie. Eventually Puckett’s Pantry was born, offering low-carb, ready-to-eat food in glass jars that you can easily take with you on your next adventure or just your next lunch!
