Rachelle Roper, Founder and Proprietor
Rachelle Roper was born in Leesburg, FL in 1978 and was raised in the small town of Okahumpka, known for growing oranges, cattle and watermelon. She is the youngest of three children that grew up learning how to live off the land. Each year she helped plant, grow, harvest and preserve the family garden. She also helped raise various livestock and spent many hours hunting and fishing to help provide food for her family. As a young child she became involved in 4-H and raised cattle and swine that would be shown and sold in Lake and Orange County. Even as a child she knew the importance of helping others and would donate a portion of her earnings from her 4-H projects to feed families in need. She grew up working in a local feed mill and cattle ranch called Lashers and maintained several other jobs working in the agriculture industry while in high school.
