Welcome to DorotaBotanicals.
My name is Dorota. I am very happy and grateful to be a wife, a mother of two wonderful sons, and a grandmother of three.
When I was 15 years old, I was diagnosed with a Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy (LGMD). It is a rare progressive genetic disorder that is characterized by weakness of the voluntary muscles. As you can all imagine, with such diagnose my world collapsed. I had to learn a lot of new things and make a ton of major adjustments, both physical and psychological. However, gradually and with time, muscular dystrophy became a part of my life.
When I have "bad” days, I always remind myself that having Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy doesn’t mean the end of my choices or my dreams. Life is way too short to give up, and certainly, I can't be successful if I even think about giving up. And that’s how DorotaBotanicals was born:)
My husband, Greg and I love life and people. As I look around me, I can’t help thinking that above all, farmer’s markets are a celebration of life. So, this is how we started selling and growing as a business. Farmers' markets are a fabulous source of fun and inspiration. At DorotaBotanicals we sell olive oils, balsamic, teas, coffees, and our favorite chocolates. They are our biggest passion.
From our family to yours, we put lots of love and careful attention in each item. We hope you enjoy our work as much as we enjoy bringing it to you.
Thank you for all your support!
