Hi! My name is Laura Patterson
I am a nurse turned farmer, Mama to 3 fantastic kiddos, and owner of Hand-Grown Greens. Several years ago, I stepped away from more than a decade of working in hospitals as a registered nurse. I wanted to find a way to contribute to the health of my community that was more aligned with the life I wanted for myself and my family. I started Hand-Grown Greens, a small microgreens farm committed to growing organic, local, and nutrient-dense microgreens year-round. Owning my own microgreens farm business has given me the freedom and flexibility to do what I love while still prioritizing my family and lifestyle.
