On New Year’s Eve, Lauren Pasquale posted to Instagram “Hopeful for a simple 2023.” After all, the co-owner of PASQUALE FARMS GARDEN CENTER had a momentous 2022. She and business partners – husband Frank and brother-in-law Mike – expanded the retail side of their Portsmouth farm from a self-serve stand in West Kingston to a full garden center in Richmond.
“When I heard that a farm store was up for lease it seemed like a sign. The dream has always been the farm and a farm store,” Lauren shares.
Originally from Narragansett, she has lived in Costa Rica and Vail but planted roots in Rhody in 2015. “It’s a testament to the draw of this community,” Lauren says of her return. “And, it’s the perfect place to have a farmstand.”
“Some days I look around and can’t believe it’s finally happening!” says Lauren in the new space. “I spent
ten hours today planting seeds and tomorrow I’m determined to learn how to put our logo on T-shirts. And the store needs dusting! The three of us make a list and get after it.”
