It's cold, the nights are long, and oh yeah, the pandemic. Why NOT stay in and eat a little chocolate?

Your doctor might object, but not Jeff Shepherd, the founder and CEO of Lillie Belle Farms. See, his company is really not a farm, but a maker of gourmet chocolates.

The creation of the company and its success are covered in this month's edition of The Ground Floor, our business segment. Jeff Shepherd--his daughter is Lillie and his wife is Belle--shares his story.
