Are you longing for that simplicity? Have you ever dreamed of a life where you bake your own bread made from wheat harvested on your land and then you make your own french toast with that bread and eggs from your chickens, milk from your cows and then drizzle sticky maple syrup from your own tapped trees over that same bread? Sounds so romantic, doesn't it? Go ahead, imagine that life...ahhhh "more soothing than a sleeping pill", right?
Except...baking bread is incredibly time consuming (seriously, how did my great grandma have time to go through all those rounds of raise, punch down, raise, knead, etc. and raise 6 kids?), and chickens poop everywhere and get eaten by coyotes, not to mention mucking stalls for cows and how many people today have access to a wheat field or a sugarbush? That's where we come in. Welcome to Farmer's Body...we'll bring a piece of that romantic farm life to you where you are- geographically and existentially...without the chicken poop!

“Farmer’s Body products are so amazingly delicious and work wonders for my skin. I love knowing that they are handmade in small batches and only use safe and natural ingredients. Their soaps, tallow balm, and lotion bars are among my favorite products. Everyone in my house (adults and kids) has used them!” -Greer Proctor-Dickson
“The scent combos are subtle and the combinations are perfect! We love the soaps so much and they’re beautiful too. The tallow and soaps have helped our skin during winter months. Highly recommend!” -Carrie-Grace Washer
“I purchased the lip balm gift set for my daughters-in-law and co-workers. Each commented on the packaging, and of course the wonderful lip balm!! So, far I have received excellent reviews on the peppermint and lavender balms!!” -Cindy Parker
“Lovely products! All handmade- local, farm sourced business. Luxurious and natural. Highly recommend.” -Lauren Downes
“I absolutely LOVE this lotion. My hands feel soft but not greasy. It soaks in well, but doesn’t feel like it is gone right away.” -Kelly Bashaw
“My 12 year old daughter just used the scrub and reported ‘We need an infinite supply of this!’ I agree. It’s really great for the skin, body and soul. Just makes you feel good!” -Sally Merrill Bouchard
“I use the bath soaks every night to help me relax and to soften my skin. I love that they help to support small farms and they make me feel amazing.” -Anne Hovick
“I am not really a body products person, but oh my! The bath soak makes my skin feel so incredible. My husband couldn’t believe how soft my legs were after I got out of the tub!” -Jill Renninger
“Every Farmer’s Body product I’ve tried had exceeded my expectations. The hand cream deeply moisturizes, the soaps are beautifully crafted and gentle on my skin and the lip balms are perfect for dry lips. I would strongly recommend these products produced right here in the Upper Valley.” -Jill Rubin
“I have used bar soap, sugar scrub and the foaming soap and each one leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth. I recently purchased the Vermont Sunset Summer Lotion and it smells and feels amazing!” -Janet Butera
“High quality ingredients and a wide variety of fragrances—from old favorites (lavender) to unique combinations (avocado mint and carrot and calendula). It’s a great product!” -Colleen Lannon
“Farmer's Body products made with local on the farm ingredients are a pleasure to have in my home. They smell so naturally good and feel wonderful to the skin. I especially like the Bath Bombs for a real treat after a hard day!” -Sandy Gmur
“I love the look, feel and smell of the Farmer's Body soaps. I love the shampoo bar as I can stop buying one more plastic bottle in my efforts to reduce and rid myself of plastic. It works great on my thin, fine hair. The body butter is fantastic for soft feeling skin. Worth every scent and they make great gifts for people.” -Coleen O'Connell

What our products have...and what we've left out
Some broad spectrum preservatives are necessary in products that contain water to protect against mold and bacterial growth- otherwise they would not be available to ship and would need to be stored in the refrigerator. We didn't come to this decision lightly! The use rate in products that contain preservative is less than 0.2% because we maximize the non-preservative anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties of our ingredients (such as pH and anti-oxidants). We have done our due diligence in deciding when/if to utilize preservatives and which preservatives to use. We use them only when absolutely necessary. Please feel free to ask any questions about this! While the preservatives extend the life of these products, they aren't going to last forever. We recommend using all products within 3-6 months after opening.
Variation in natural products: discoloration, separation
Need something special? Send us an email! We love custom requests- special ingredients, allergies, special occasions...as a small handcrafter, we are happy to accommodate custom orders! Please note that soap takes a minimum of 4 weeks to fully cure and be ready for bubbly use.
