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.
We had a wonderful visit with Alex from the StyleBlueprint team last week! From milking with Suze, to soap making with James, they captured the alchemy that happens every day at Little Seed, turning grass into suds.
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.
