Chef Jen Johnson founded A Boring Life in August 2018 after successfully exiting Hip Chick Farms, an organic chicken company that she started five years prior and quickly grew to national distribution within four years of launch, Chef Jen moved her family to the town of Boring, Oregon, a rural agricultural community outside of Portland. They moved to a farm where they started farming lavender.
Chef Jen had started taking hemp extract for pain relief and focus six months prior. She was taken with the positive and natural effects of Hemp Extract – a remedy that offered so many benefits without any negative side effects. Her wife was also enjoying the hemp extract, so she decided to start cooking with it. Chef Jen is a classically trained chef, having cooked previously for 10 years at Chez Panisse with Alice Waters and for 16 years for the prestigious Getty Family in San Francisco.
A few short months later, she created A Boring Life opening the next chapter on her culinary adventure. Having found a more relaxed way to live, Chef Jen wanted to share her extraordinary new snacking nuts to highlight this phenomenal ingredient and super food – Hemp Extract.
