DrPH Student Jennifer Russomanno earned a place on the Knoxville News Sentinel’s 40 under 40 list of of 2019, which recognizes the community’s most entrepreneurial people under the age of 40.

In 2012, Jennifer and her partner, Kimberly Bryant, began selling affordably priced organic foods from their two acre farm under the name of Two Chicks and a Farm.

Since then, Two Chicks and a Farm has grown in more ways than one.  Not only has the size of the farm grown, but its products are available at more and varied markets.  It also provides special pricing and delivery services through a partnership with Morning Point assisted living facilities.

In 2017, Two Chicks and a Farm expanded online with the purchase of Garden Delivery Community Supporting Agriculture, making its goods even more accessible to the community.

Jennifer was previously recognized for her role on the Fresh Food for All Public Health Nutrition Policy Team, who’s project on the WIC Farmer’s Market Nutrition Program won the 2018 Howard Baker Center Grand Policy Challenge.
