2016 syrup is here! It's delicious! We are a small family operation--our four children help us gather sap from our 250 buckets and 50 taps on line, and we run a small wood-fired evaporator. Made with lots of love in central Vermont.

Our soaps are made of mainly olive oil, with coconut, almond or sesame oils added depending on the type of bar we are going for. We don't use palm oil in our bars (http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/harvesting-palm-oil-and-rainforests/). Recently, we've experimented with using our own Jersey milk and it has become our family's favorite soap!

This is lovely: it is the purest I could find, and it does what I wanted it do: moisturize my lips at bedtime. However, I find myself reaching for it at all times of the day: nothing else I have is as gentle and effective. Total recommendation.

About

Farm Fresh

Our family of 6 lives on a small farmstead in Vermont where we raise pastured meats and eggs, veggies, bottle our own wood-fired maple syrup and sell raw milk from our three cow micro-dairy. We're a little homestead that's slowly grown to make our humble living from our farm over the past 11 years.

I started this shop as a fun outlet for my knitting, dyeing and sewing... it's become a spot for me to sell our handmade soaps, farm photography and Adam's maple syrup. Together, we work to provide our community with products made with love on our farm--now we can do that with our etsy community as well!

All of my items are hand-made by me, on my farm in Vermont, USA.

Our syrup is wood-fired and bottled right here on the farm. It's not certified organic, but it's made simply and purely--we collect the sap, boil it in our evaporator with wood-fire and bottle it the same day!

The grain mix is certified organic lentils, rice, millet, oats and spelt. I grind it the same day that I ship it.

My soaps are cold-processed, old-fashioned and made in small batches. Due to their "rustic" nature, their size varies slightly, but is generally around 5oz.

All knitted and sewn items are my own patterns or designs unless otherwise noted on the listing.

All photos are taken by me on my Olympus dslr camera with my 30+ year old lenses. They are unedited and printed either here or through adorama.com.
