Grandma's Lemon Loaf: How our Family Recipe is Reaching a Wider Fan Base

Grandma's Lemon Loaf: How our Family Recipe is Reaching a Wider Fan Base

Within the past few years, we've taken our family recipe for Grandma's Lemon Loaf and expanded it to include vegan and sugar-free options, plus different flavor varieties. The result has been a cake our faithful followers cannot get enough of, which is what prompted us to make it accessible to folks with different dietary needs in the first place. 

Now you can find Grandma's Lemon Loaf being featured on the BCAN channel, as you can check out below, but also in the Toledo City Paper Wedding Guide that came out this spring. The feature is called Beyond the Cake, and it takes readers off the beaten path of traditional wedding fare to present dessert tables that offer the unexpected. As you probably know by now, Get the Unexpected is our motto for a reason! We are proud to be included in this roundup of local dessert options. 

Aside from weddings, Grandma's Lemon Loaf can be ordered for many different types of events, holiday gatherings, or as a simple way to jazz up a routine family dinner. Click here to learn more!

 

The Sojourner's Truth: Readers get the Scoop on Fangboner Farms

The Sojourner's Truth: Readers get the Scoop on Fangboner Farms

Followers on our Instagram page have likely already seen this exciting news: Elizabeth and Bella made the cover of The Sojourner's Truth! Everyone on the Fangboner Farms team couldn't be more pleased that this weekly publication - a beacon of support for Black businesses in Northwest Ohio - decided to feature us in the June 30th issue. It was a joy to tell our story.

In a nutshell, the story talks about the origins of Fangboner Farms, but it also talks about what it means to have three generations of farmers working the land in an industry that has not always been inclusive. That, coupled with the Richardson family's tips on how Fangboner Farms' offerings can provide a boost to your overall health, make this article a must read! Don't forget to check out the story at thetruthtoledo.com.

*A couple of clarifications we'd like to make regarding the article: Roland co-founded the farm in 2009, started MP & Son Landscaping, and Elizabeth later became CEO of Fangboner Farms in 2018. Additionally, the name Fangboner Farms was not coined by Izabella, but by the cofounder's son.
