Lindsey Becker received her degree in Business Administration from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. (During a semester abroad in Italy, her passion for all things culinary was sparked.) After college, she worked as a Strategy and Operations Analyst at Deloitte Consulting and was the Director of Business Development at Alton Lane (a retail clothing startup).
In 2012, Lindsey decided to follow her true passion—moving to New York to attend the Institute of Culinary Education. After receiving her degree in Culinary Arts, she worked in the kitchen at the Michelin-starred Gramercy Tavern in New York City.
Prior to launching Farm Cut, Lindsey became a certified health coach and ran a personal chef business where her team would cook healthy, customized meals in clients’ homes all over Manhattan. She was featured in the Wall Street Journal, Food Network, Cosmopolitan, and other top media outlets. Lindsey specialized in creating healthy versions of the comfort foods that people craved. As a busy working mom that no longer had time to cook, she quickly realized that these types of meals weren’t available to the masses. She also found out that many people wanted to eat just like her clients and decided to make her signature style of cooking (comfort foods made from superfoods) available to Manhattanites. Farm Cut was founded leveraging her business, sales, marketing, and culinary experiences. In 2018, average monthly sales growth has been +116%.
Lindsey is a top fundraiser for the Humane Rescue Alliance’s Fashion for Paws campaign. As well, she is an avid supporter of the Heart of America Foundation, which supplies books to children in need across the United States.
