We are so excited to share in celebrating the arrival of the newest farmer in the East Nashville Farmers Market family. Wilder Lee Geny was born to at 12:08am on October 9th. He weighed 8lb 5oz and was 21″ long. Mom, Sonia, and baby are now at home and doing well. Stacy has been a bit sleep deprived and hopes to return this week with his veggies from Paradise Produce.
Chubby Bunny was founded in 2012 out of the Nashville kitchen of Jemina Boyd. After several of her friends became new mothers, Jemina began noticing that they wanted to feed fresh, healthy foods to their babies. However, making your own baby food can be time consuming, and most new moms would prefer to spend their valuable free time with their little ones instead of in the kitchen. What began as an effort to help out new families has become a business.
Growing up in a family of six where Jemina’s mom made her own baby food, she is no stranger to the process. Jem and her family are constantly experimenting with new fruits + vegetable combinations, along with herbs and spices, to make seasonal flavors that your baby is sure to love. All of the baby foods are made with organic, fresh ingredients that are sourced from local farms when available. They’re also taste tested and approved by a panel of very picky little eaters.
Come and see Jemina and her tasty creations at the East Nashville Farmers Market on Wednesdays from 3:30pm-7pm.
