Meet The Farmers
Welcome to our farm page! I'm Sara and I'm the voice behind the farm.
I started creating skincare products back in 2016. I was pregnant with my first son at the time and wanted natural and safe products to use on our growing family. I couldn't find products that met my standards, as the majority of store bought products are green washed, so I decided to make them myself. I later shared them with the community and when they were such a hit I began slowly building a business and balancing motherhood. I fell in love with herbalism and gardening and just knew I wanted a profession that involved working with herbs and flowers.
I like to think of our offerings as, Slow Farm-Made Herbal Skincare. True Herbalism. We work with whole plant matter, infusing our Certified Naturally Grown medicinal herbs into oils and butters for a minimum of 8 weeks. When working with whole plant matter, we can create a much more well-rounded infusion, that contains all of the plant's healing properties.
With your skin being your largest organ it is important to take care of it! This means using products that are made with quality ingredients. We grow the herbs used in our products on our Certified Naturally Grown farm, meaning we follow Certified Organic guidelines in our gardens. We only use certified organic oils, butters and waxes in our skincare products.
We hand-milk our Nigerian Dwarf goats for their exceptional quality of milk to use in our soaps. Goat's milk is packed with nutrients for your skin. It is especially beneficial ical for those with sensitive skin and skin conditions. But it is also wonderful for anyone wanting healthy soft skin. Goat's milk contains vitamin A, B1, B6, B12, C, D, E, minerals, antioxidants, fatty acids, amino acids and enzymes. The PH level in goat's milk is the closest to human skin and is why our skin recognizes it, and allows the nutrients to absorb so easily.
More about the farm
Since my husband, Brian, has become a part of the operation, the farm has blossomed into much more than just skincare, herbs and flowers. I grew up farming, as I am a 5th generational farmer, as where Brian did not. I had always yearned for a farm of my own and a slower way of life. Our homesteading journey began in 2018 when we purchased my childhood home. The original goal was to be more self-sustainable and to know how our food was being grown/raised. That goal quickly turned into a farming operation when we realized others wanted this same transparency.
There was a need for organically raised meat, eggs and plant starts in our community. We wanted to be that option. I have always said, "if you don't have your health, then what do you have?". This statement is what geared me to create Willow Moon Farm. We now offer shipping for our premium meats, so people all across the country can experience the difference. Our number one priority is the health and safety of our livestock. Our livestock is raised on pasture and fed a locally produced Non-GMO feed. All of our animals are treated with the utmost care. We keep our meats free from antibiotics and hormones, for our family's health and yours as well.
We offer quality breeding stock from our herd of Kunekune pigs and Nigerian Dwarf goats. Send us a message for more information.
