I love this photo of me. Our friend and photographer extraordinaire Maddie caught me in the best belly laugh. My family loves it when I laugh until I cry. I get bonus points if snorting is involved.
In 2014 I abruptly lost my job of 23 years. As devastating as it was, through that experience (or perhaps as a direct result of it), I rediscovered joy and laughter in my life. Spending my days with the goats, sheep, and dogs on the farm helped me evaluate my life, my next steps and reconnect with the slow, simple life I'd become so disconnected from. While makings a batch of soap one day it occurred to me that I could share these simple pleasures with others and carve out a life I loved in the process.
Something about the present and future.
I hope our farm goods bring the farm joy and peace of simple living to you.
Our guiding principals
We believe in the beauty and sustainability of natural fibers. We believe that small farms are the backbone of our country. We believe in fair prices and worthy wages. We believe in the power of community.
We want to live in a world where safe, sustainable products are mainstream, a world where peace is the highest priority, where women and minorities are treated with dignity and unquestionable equality.
We choose to use, preserve and pass on heritage craft skills and will never use mass production for our goods. We intentionally show the faces of the animals and producers and tell their stories.
Join us in celebrating the simple elegance and value of goods created in traditional ways, the animals that provide our foundational materials and a return to a simpler, honest time.
