"Farmer grew up in Boston and in Medford, Massachusetts. She suffered a paralytic stroke during her high-school years that forced her to end her formal education. She recovered sufficiently to find employment as a mother’s helper, and she soon showed both an aptitude and a great fondness for cooking. With the encouragement of her parents, she entered the Boston Cooking School. Graduating in 1889, Farmer was asked to remain as assistant director, and in 1894 she became head of the school. Although reticent, she nevertheless became much sought after as a lecturer. She left the school in 1902 to open her own Miss Farmer’s School of Cookery, which was designed to train housewives rather than teachers, institutional cooks, or servants. For a year at Harvard University she conducted a course in dietetic and invalid cooking, and with her sister, Cora Farmer Perkins, she wrote a regular column for the Woman’s Home Companion from 1905 to 1915."
