Born in Culpeper, Virginia, and uprooted to New York state at the age of 9, Brandon grew up being artistic in any way he could find possible. After high school, he attended the State University of NY Delhi, and recieved his bachelors degree in Culinary Arts Management. After graduating, something was calling him back to his home in Virginia. Landing a job in a fine dining restaurant in his home town of Culpeper, Brandon was able to gain a plethora of knowledge of the restaurant business outside of what he learned culinary school. After two and a half years there, he found himself wanting more out of his career, which is when he joined our family at The Natural Marketplace. Since coming here, Brandon has expanded his horizons and has mastered creating delicious and creative dishes, made from entirely organic and healthy ingredients. In Brandon's free time, he enjoys spending time with his two dogs, and exploring nature.

Madeleine is a city gal in a country state of mind and living. Born and raised in NYC, Madeleine moved to Massachusetts and lived on a 3rd generation commercial apple farm with farm store and award winning cider. After two plus decades, Madeleine then moved to the Warrenton/Rappahannock Area.
With degrees in veterinary technology and biology, Madeleine spent many years working, training and mentoring others at UMass Medical School in Worcester. The move south to the Mid Atlantic included a career change and expansion from academia to corporate animal health pharma sales and consulting. Having experienced and seen firsthand the results of mainstream medicine on the human and animal sides, Madeleine found that the uses of big pharma medications and medical modalities were not often the best routes for her, her family or her many dogs. She consistently found much more down to earth, natural, effective and comfortable ways to heal and stay healthy.
Not eating processed foods helped Madeleine grow and stay healthy and vibrant. She also found that using natural products, supplements, herbs and positive and productive natural alternatives she could age gracefully with high activity, comfort and happiness. With interests in sustainability and low carbon footstep, Madeleine encourages herself and other to live sensibly recycling and where possible re-using. By being mindful and deliberately including the love of friends, family, pets, arts, music, nature and more on a daily basis she has greatly enhanced her dogs’ and her lives. Madeleine is happy to share her practical knowledge and experiences with others.
