About HarvestHillFarms

Sales 730
On Etsy since 2017

So how did an EMT from LA find herself in rural Idaho making pottery?

Hello and welcome!

It all started with the decision to listen to the part of me that was calling for a slower pace of life and a more natural way of living. After much online research, I found a town in ID that checked all my boxes. My very accommodating husband allowed us to uproot our lives and we bought Harvest Hill Farms with literally no knowledge of what it took to raise animals or work land. To say the learning curve was steep, is an understatement.

To complicate matters, in 2013, I was diagnosed with PCOS (Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome) induced infertility. The more I researched, the more I realized that what we put in and on our bodies can have a significant impact on both our health and our lives as a whole. This fueled my passion to live a healthier and more intentional life.

Hand crafting cold processes soap, soy candles, and a variety of bath & body products gave me a creative outlet and jump started my Etsy career. Physically, I felt better, my skin was clearer, and my adrenal fatigue was less crushing. However, I tend to approach new skills passionately and after acquiring an effective knowledge base, I sometimes find it difficult to stick to just one medium…enter pottery.

Pottery is a fickle, finicky, temptress that keeps me on my toes.

Some days working with earth is grounding and some days it is humbling but every time I open that kiln after a final firing, I am reminded of why I love this craft. Creating functional pieces of art that have the potential to become family heirlooms is a challenge that I believe I have accepted with the appropriate reverence.

My hope is that these pieces impart some of the joy and love they were created with upon their new homes.
