The Story behind Shady Lane Foods:
Deeply Rooted in Healthy Food

My name is Ginny McQueen and I LOVE being in the kitchen and making granola! 

I've had careers in banking, real estate and in higher education spanning over 30 years, but my true passion has always been cooking which I do just about every day. I love trying new recipes and experimenting in the kitchen. In 2016, this passion led me to Hope and Main in Warren, RI where I enrolled in the incubator program for food entrepreneurs. 

Following completion of this program, Shady Lane Foods was formed.  My first product is granola that is gluten friendly, vegan, free of preservatives and refined sugar.  This product reflects my goal to create recipes that are delicious, healthy and safe for those with dietary restrictions.  The inspiration comes from experiences with friends who are gluten intolerant and also from those who have adopted a vegan diet and find limited options.  I am also inspired to provide healthy and nutritious food to children living in food insecure homes.  To that end, I donate Shady Lane Granola weekly to the Bristol Warren Regional School's Backpack Program.

I grew up in Rhode Island and live there today with my husband of 34 years who also loves to cook.  He is more adventurous than me and specializes in squid ink pasta with cuttlefish!  We raised two boys who are both confident in the kitchen much to the amazement and enjoyment of their friends.  I am a graduate of  Brown University,  travel often, love yoga and running 5Ks and, in addition to cooking, I'm blessed to be surrounded by family and good friends.
