Each individual's daily lifestyle is the most powerful tool for positive change that any of us possess. The things we use and surround ourselves with shape ourselves and our world. We are quite literally what we eat, drive, bathe with, etc.

Our goal is to make a wholesome living from our land and our talents by offering goods for daily living that are people-, Earth-, and pocketbook- friendly. We strive in all that we do to strengthen and restore the land, and the human community, spirit, and economy.

We hope you will join in our effort by supporting diversity in the form of small, family business and wholesome, natural products.
