Our Story

I used to have this dream...

Of a life where I baked my own bread made from wheat harvested on my land and then I would make French toast with that bread and with eggs I collected that morning from my chickens, milk from my cow and then I would drizzle sticky maple syrup from my own tapped sugarbush over that same bread. I wore an adorable stylish apron designed by Joanna Gaines and used safe ingredients to keep my family healthy. My kids helping in the kitchen in sibling harmony and joyfully cleaning their rooms, too (yeah ok, that last part is far-fetched). 

 

 

And then I woke up.

I mean, baking bread IS pretty fun and therapeutic. Sometimes. When I feel like it. But let's face it, cows realistically aren't going to be my next pet (fresh milk- sweet! at 3am- no thanks). And how many people today have access to a wheat field or a sugarbush?

And you KNOW my kids aren't joyfully cleaning anything.

But, here's the thing...when I woke up, I kept a part of that dream. I woke up on this amazing farm at a co-housing village in Vermont where I have access to the most amazing farmers in America. (Spoiler- I know the people with the cows and the sugarbush in real life!). 

Introducing: Farmer's Body- Farm to Tub for Every Body

Shimmy on into that adorable Draper James frock and we'll bring the wholesome farm ingredients to you in style.

All of our products are crafted at the Cobb Hill co-housing ecovillage in Hartland, VT (a super cool place to be...where we can live ON a farm but not BE the farmers. We're able to support the farm on our community land and help to make small agriculture a more sustainable livelihood http://www.cobbhill.org/).

Everything we make features safe, natural ingredients grown on small farms. Ingredients that work. Stuff good enough to put IN your body as well as ON your body- like fresh Jersey milk, silky tallow, ripe blueberries, juicy tomatoes, cucumbers, corn and leafy greens, purple basil, thyme and calendula, pumpkin, fresh eggs, sweet maple syrup, Shiitake mushrooms and more. Yum! 

Even better- we actively seek out collaborations with women farmers whenever we can (which is a lot!).

And we make it pretty, too. 

Farmer’s Body literally and figuratively brings the fresh farm ingredients- from farmers we know and trust- to your family's tub. 

This is Us.

Hello! Nice to e-meet you:) My name is Meggan (yes, two g's- blame my parents) and I'm the main body behind Farmer's Body. I grew up on the front range in Colorado, and am now proud to call rural Vermont home.
Our family spent time living all across the country searching for just the right lifestyle and found it at a co-housing village in Vermont. Cobb Hill is a grand "experiment" in living in community with each other and with the land.
My intense love for this co-operative farm life is one where I don't have to milk cows myself, but can chat daily with the farmer (Kerry) who does, and look out over the lush field of her market garden and buy her tallow and fresh milk at the on-site farmstand.
I KNOW these people, from their agricultural practices to their dreams, and I trust them.
 


Supporting women.

At Farmer's Body we have a special heart for women farmers. We seek out collaborations with other women whenever we can and use as many local suppliers as possible. We love working with small family farmers and with other women entrepreneurs to supply our featured ingredients.

Variation in natural products: discoloration, separation

Nature isn't boring. It is dynamic and variable. Because we use actually natural, minimally processed ingredients, they may vary a little from batch to batch. (Did you know that milk from our cows tastes a little different in the Spring when they are grazing on fresh grass vs. in the winter when the grass they eat is dried?).
You can expect some variation in color, shape or appearance as well as some separation or settling of ingredients and some color fading (or darkening in the case of products containing vanilla) in our hand crafted natural products. This is normal, expected and something to celebrate! It means we really did use natural products and makes each product uniquely yours.
What doesn't vary is our commitment to bring these ingredients, in their best form, to you.
