Andy and Pat Benko purchased The Parsley Porch in 2007 from Brad Larker. He had owned several such stores dating back to the 1970’s but only the one at The Green Dragon farmers market still remained. In 2007, the Benkos took over with very few changes. Andy and Brad are still friends.
As our website states, “The BEST Spices at GREAT Prices”, this is OUR commitment to YOU. Shortly after assuming ownership we decided to share our wares with the rest of our country through our website. We spent our careers as teachers. We understand and have lived our lives providing great service for a modest income. Being a “mom and pop” store without employees, thus far, and operating out of our home with no expensive store to rent, we stand by our commitment. If a competitor can match our quality, they cannot touch our prices. If a competitor can match our prices, they don’t come close to our quality. We MAKE our own pure vanilla extract that is almost a year old before we sell it and it crushes the quality and price of “name” brands. Our saffron is above ISO 3632 Category 1 saffron standards. We have 50+ custom blends, several of which are NO SALT, sold ONLY at The Parsley Porch. We have 30+ wholesale vendors where we pick and choose from the best each has to offer. Al most all of our essential oils are pharmaceutical grade, the highest level of purity and thus quality. Contact us if you have any questions about any of our products. Email works best. firstname.lastname@example.org. We may have only operated The Parsley Porch for 13 years but remember we have over 75 years of dealing with everyday people. Andy taught then biological sciences for 41 years. Much of any biology course is botany, biochemistry and health. The Parsley Porch is nothing more than roots, stems, leaves, fruits and seeds used in culinary and health-giving applications. Please check out our Facebook Page. Please feel free to post a "Google Review" about any of your experiences either at our store or online. Enjoy our "Blogs" where we give you the owners' perspective on our products. Bon appetit!
