Our Boring Farm

We have a lavender farm in the town of Boring, Oregon nestled at the foot of Mt. Hood. Lavender and farming have been essential to creating a more holistic lifestyle for our entire family. Our farm and family are the root of A Boring Life.

Anxiety is the most common mental disorder diagnosed in America today.  18% of Americans will be diagnosed with anxiety disorder this year alone.  A Boring Life seeks to provide help.  We are helping folks to find balance and emotional well-being with whole foods and plant nutrition.

Live a boring life with us!

Our Boring Story

Chef Jen Johnson and Serafina Palandech founded A Boring Life in August 2018 after successfully exiting Hip Chick Farms, an organic chicken company that they started five years prior and quickly grew to national distribution within four years of launch.  Chef Jen & family moved to the town of Boring, Oregon, a rural agricultural community outside of Portland  and started farming lavender, tending bees and making delicious food sourced from local farms.

A few short months later, the pair created A Boring Life opening the next chapter on their culinary adventure – wanting to create chef curated snacks to support a more relaxed lifestyle.

Mission Statement

A Boring Life makes chef curated foods to support a more relaxed lifestyle.

Core Values

Family: A Boring Life believes in the value of family and together building a business that helps the local economy, farmers and suppliers.

Natural Solutions to Natural Problems: We believe in good health. A Boring Life is dedicated to making only the highest quality whole foods and natural products sourced from local farmers we know and trust. We believe in offering natural solutions to natural problems by using good nutrition and super foods to promote a more healthy lifestyle.

Regenerative Agriculture: Regenerative agriculture leads to healthy soil, capable of producing high quality, nutrient dense food while simultaneously improving, rather than degrading land, and ultimately leading to productive farms and healthy communities and economies. We believe bees & hemp will help with the regenerative movement in this country and provide great regenerative benefits to our agricultural systems. We use these principles on our farm.
