You might not know it to look at her, but Days of Our Lives star Lauren Koslow is an organic crop farmer.
She talks about the unusual hobby in an interview with Soap Opera Weekly...
Soap Opera Weekly: How did this business come about?
Lauren Koslow: We bought property years ago, 20 acres, because we were into horses. I did a lot of horseback riding. My daughter (Milikate) was riding competitively. We were going to build a training facility for horses. So we got the land, and where we live is an agriculture area. We had people coming to our door fairly regularly, saying, "Do you want to rent us your land for growing [crops]?" We were thinking about it. Then we decided: Why don't we give this a try? Why don't we grow, since everyone else wants to rent our land to do it?
Weekly: Do you have any produce customers at the Days of Our Lives studio?
Koslow: Actually, I do. James Scott (EJ) is one of my customers. He takes a weekly box of vegetables. He was right on top of it. I brought some in, and he was like, "I'll do this." I have a few other potential customers.
