Laura Myers

Animal and Team Welfare

Laura has a diverse amount of job responsibilities at Binksberry Hollow. Not only does she assist in running the butcher shop, manage the Farm retail portion of the business but she is also in charge of animal and team welfare. This is a unique responsibility created at Binksberry Hollow. Laura was given complete autonomy and responsibility for maintaining animal and human welfare at Binksberry Hollow. This quite simply means she does not need to report to or ask permission from any of the owners or managers to immediately implement any changes she feels necessary for the betterment and quality of life improvement (whether it be animal or human ) for every living thing that spends time on our farm. Profit is not a consideration when it comes to her decision-making process. Only welfare.

Shaun started his digital marketing career on the client-side working on email campaigns for companies like GNC and Garden of Life. More recently, he worked as Operations Manager and Director of e-commerce for private organizations that owned multiple seven-figure brands.

Taste, transparency, supporting local business and convenience all played important roles for Shaun when he decided to join the Binksberry Hollow (BH) team. BH is helping people discover and access the highest quality local produce and meats from small hometown farms as well as, bringing people together — farmers and consumers, families and friends. “Who wouldn’t want to be a part of that??”,  said Shaun.

Shaun lives in Williamsville with his beautiful wife and his Cavachon dog named Bella. In his “free” time, he loves watching the Buffalo Bills, playing golf (terribly), and taking yearly trips down to Marco Island, Florida.
