Eileen, our Co-Founder, featured by designer Elizabeth Suzann

Almost 5 years ago now, I left my career in fashion design to start a sustainable farm with James. My reasons for leaving fashion behind were many, but mainly the move stemmed from a deep moral discomfort with the new "fast fashion" ethos that valued fast cheap production with total disregard for the damages it inflicted on the environment and the people that produced it.

Now, years later, I'm so honored and excited to be featured as a muse for the talented and inspiring Elizabeth Suzann  - a designer who's company strives to "do things right".

Goats For The Win!

Over the past 2.5 years we've literally worked day in and day out to get our feet on the ground and the farm established. From our very first blog post while we were still city dwellers, we've been on a mission fueled by love and passion for our environment, our community, and each other. It hasn't been easy, but by the end of 2013 James was able to quit his day-job and throughout the summer we started to see a light at the end of the tunnel as more and more customers fell in love with our soaps and the business edged closer to reaching a point of financial sustainability. It's a huge step for us and we're so proud and happy to see Little Seed growing and so thankful for all of your support and encouragement along the way.

Changing Light

Every year around this time I find myself wondering how Summer has slipped away so swiftly. As much as I love Fall and its tee shirt weather (yep!) days and cool cozy sweater nights, when the chill starts to creep in, I get a little wistful and can't help but think "Wait! I'm not ready for Winter!". This year's Summer's end was especially poignant. Our son George turned 1 and his babyhood is tiptoeing away along with the sunny evenings and fireflies. The light has been so beautiful, a last hurrah before it leaves us for the rest of the year.

A Season Of Cheese

As hard as it is to believe, after 37 weeks and 22 different cheeses, our first full season of milking and cheesemaking for our herd-share has come to a close. What a season it was! Finally, after years of planning and preparation, we started to live our dream of providing local and sustainable food to our community. It has been incredibly fulfilling and we are so thankful for our amazing herd-share members who decided to jump on board and give us a chance. We'll be back at it in May and can't wait!
