The story of The Grocer & Co story begins with us moving to Orange at the end of 2012 looking for a tree change. We wanted something different, something that suited us more.
We came to Orange for my cousin's wedding in the January, instantly started imagining ourselves living here, visited a few more times for fun and moved to Orange in the December. And we haven't looked back.
After settling into life in the O.C. and with the benefits of the creativity that flows with a bit of fresh air and a slower pace of life, we had the idea and urge to open The Grocer & Co. We love great food and eating mindfully, believe wholeheartedly in the benefits of eating organic and ethically produced food, and in providing a welcoming and energetic space within the community for people to gather.
On a more serious note, we're passionate about organic food and everything it can represent. Organic foods don't pollute our bodies with chemicals, they are produced in an ethical and sustainable manner, and they are fair-trade, meaning that we're nurturing ourselves, preserving our planet for the future, and supporting our farmers. Simply put, organics is nourishing, mindfull, ethical & sustainable.
The Grocer & Co is our little shop and a huge part of us, so we hope you love it as much as we do.
With love from Guy, Ellie & Henry x
