We escaped the city for life on the farm!
Joe & Mandy met in Tallahassee, Fl. while attending college in 1996 and have been like 2 peas in a pod ever since. We finished school & moved to Phoenix, AZ to start our careers & do some hiking! We spent 11 years there enjoying the desert scenery, pursuing our careers & living it up with great friends. While we loved Arizona and the diversity of the culture and people who call it home, we wanted to farm for a living! So we quit our careers, traded in our alarm clock for a rooster & moved to our family farm in PA in order to live a more simple, self-sufficient lifestyle. We've always had a love for art & nature, been good at doing things for ourselves & growing gorgeous gardens so we figured what the heck! We had also been making our own soap for the previous year after searching for products that use ALL natural ingredients with low or no environmental impact and decided we would be able to create something special. We became really good at it and our family and friends encouraged us to make our soap, art, & vegetables available to the public, so here we are!
