WHERE IT ALL BEGAN FOR INFOSHRED...PLUS, CARINI'S BERRY FARM SOLD

HERE’S THE SCOOP…


THE EVOLUTION OF INFOSHRED: A TRUE FAMILY BUSINESS


East Windsor-based document shredding company, Infoshred dates back generations within the same family. Believe it or not, their story begins on a pig farm! This business was built from the ground up and continues to innovate and evolve with time. Their story is one you won't want to miss...click below to see more!




CARINI'S BERRY FARM SOLD


Big news on a story we first reported back in January of 2019. Carini's Berry Farm has sold to a developer out of West Hartford. This is the same developer that initially showed interest in the land 3 years ago. They had put forth a proposal for a new subdivision with 19 homes. It's unclear if this same plan is in the works, but we will keep you posted on what's to come.




FOUNDER OF BARE LIFE COMING TO WHOLE FOODS


Connecticut-based hot cocoa company Bare Life is partnering with local Whole Foods and ShopRite stores to offer in-store demonstrations/tastings of their gluten and dairy free hot cocoa. Founder, Ali Lazowksi will be at the Glastonbury Whole Foods February 26th from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Ali's story is super inspiring. She went from being bed ridden and in chronic pain due to severe food allergies to developing her allergen-free hot cocoa. She went on to launch a super successful company. You go girl! Pop in and try a sample or learn more about her products HERE.
