I will introduce myself. My name is Karen, own Mrs. Brake’s Spices (in Farmington), I work hard, am creative, love nature plus much more and if you read all this let me know!
I founded Mrs. Brake’s Spices, because of my love of children, flavors (playing with my food) and found ways to give back and serve the community.
As an owner of a children’s daycare, I wanted the children to enjoy quality foods, so I eliminated processed flavorings and started making my own blends. The kids loved the new flavors. That’s when I fell in love with creating new flavors that brighten and enhance meals to invite healthy choices.
I researched and experimented with multitudes of spices, flavorings, and dried foods, ultimately creating the variety of offerings that you can now find in the store. In April 2017, it broke my heart, but closed the daycare and began Mrs. Brake’s Spices.
I created spice samplers so you don’t have to buy a huge bottle of something. I continue searching for unique and interesting products to stock in the store, discovering new blends, creating new recipes, and offering personal experiences through workshops, classes and education.
I wanted to give back and started serving as a board member in the Farmington Chamber of Commerce in 2019, On behalf of the Chamber run a small, but growing Farm market across from the trooper barracks and taking care of technical side of things which I also love. Which leads me to my next paragraph
In my spare time I laser engrave and print and currently making/selling keychains and earrings(working on different products) in the store for Breast cancer research which 90% of proceeds going towards research. I partner with another local business and do a fundraiser event at her shop every October. Stop in to see the other laser engraved items I make!
I am committed to helping you with flavor and encourage you to "Play with your food"!
I would love for you to stop in and say Hi anytime! Window shop products here on the products page.
