I wanted you to get to know this shop owner a little so enjoy this little interview!
1. Please introduce yourself! Tell me about you and your small biz!
Based on a small Farm in Deroche BC, Farmstead Naturals is a line of hand-crafted bath & beauty products made from natural ingredients as well as great cleaning products made by myself, a Farm wife and mother. I started Farmstead Naturals after discovering a love for creating all-natural, safe skincare & household products while staying at home with my four kids.
2. Where does the name of your shop come from? What does it mean to you?
The name of my shop comes from my background of farming and living on a farm my whole life. It encompases the farm and natural living.
3. How long have you had your small biz?
4. How did you get started?
It all started when my husband and I started having kids. We decided to use cloth diapers. We figured that this would be less disposables in the landfill and learned how much chemicals are in disposable diapers. From there I began to make my own diaper cream because a cloth diaper safe cream was hard to find. As I poured over recipes and ideas I learned how bad for my babies commercially made creams are. It was like a snowball effect after that, I started making my own skin care and household products.
