Lauren Szymanski has been working at Animals and Gardens Unlimited for seven years. At age eleven she found out about the store because the barn she was working and taking riding lessons for came to AGU for grain. She has been coming back to the store ever since! Lauren is passionate about almost everything animal related. She started riding horses when she was just seven years old, got her first horse at 13 and still owns him. But that horse isn’t alone, Lauren and her husband have a hobby farm which includes three horses, ponies, potbellied pigs, goats, chickens, geese, a bunny, four dogs and a cockatiel. She uses the majority of what we sell and has so much first-hand experience with the animals and our products that she is definitely a go-to person for questions about any of these animals. In addition to all of the animals at home Lauren and her husband have a growing family of two young boys who they love to take camping and horseback riding.
