My husband and I worked for a local hemp farm/production company from 2019 to 2020. My husband worked with the plants and I worked in the office. We really enjoyed our jobs. Working on the farm was really cool. I had three dogs hanging out by my desk most of the day and my husband and I got to work together. Then the Covid-19 pandemic hit here in Western, Colorado in March 2020 and everything changed.
We were laid off in the Spring of 2020. We had been growing peppers for fun for about 5 years. We were talking and trying to figure out what to do to continue to earn a living. Job prospects during the pandemic are quite slim. My husband loves to garden and I love to cook and create. So it seemed natural to make our garden bigger and get creative.
We were always sharing our peppers and products with our friends and co-workers. So it seemed natural if we were going to change direction and earn a living we needed to step it up. My husband greatly increased the garden size, I started the website and the company and here we are.
Pandemic Polly was a funny name we jokingly came up with and it stuck. Polly want a cracker? Became Polly want a pepper?
