As our 175th anniversary of family farming continues, we are introducing year-round staff so you can get to know them better!
This week, learn a little more about Lauren Keereweer, our Assistant Customer Service Manager
Lauren started with the farm in January 2015 on the opening day of the season. She was first introduced to the island by longtime friend Nate via a day trip that included beach time and nightlife. Soon after, she returned for a job opportunity in a new environment, beginning at Something Natural as a delivery driver. While her first impression of the island was “confusing,” she says that after three full years on Nantucket, the one way streets and rotaries have become second nature to her. Her deliveries brought her to Bartlett’s Farm, and she began working here soon after. Lauren began here at the farm as a member of the cashier team before becoming Assistant Customer Service Manager in 2016. Lauren loves interacting with the regular customers, exchanging anecdotes, and working closely with friend and manager Whitney, running the customer service department at the farm.
In her down time, like many of her fellow coworkers, she is likely to be found unwinding on one of the islands’ beaches, hunting for beach glass or grabbing those memorable sunset pics of the island on her phone and doing research on topics such as “How best to raise your baby chicks”.
