It’s getting embarrassing…

Several people have asked me recently, “Are you still making your herbal products?”. It’s kindof getting embarrassing because I am making things all the time but no one seems to know…

My fault, of course! I’m not good with keeping up my newsletter and blog posts.

It’s a busy time for us on the farm right now as well, getting all the seeds started and plants into the ground.

But I do have skin balms available here in the online shop. Made with Watermelon Seed oil, Mango Butter, and Virgin Coconut oil, they are a richly moisturizing, dry skin treat. Perfect for the rough skin of gardening hands 🙂

Salves and soaps will be coming back soon.

Vegan Skincare relaunches March 22

coming_soon

Bursting with fresh energy and new ideas, I’m ready to dig in and get busy. Hiatus was exactly what I needed. My vegan skincare line has been redesigned and refined, focusing on a few select herbs and oils that have proven themselves indispensable in helping skin be at its best.

So much of what I see used in the market is filler (added for the “feel” of the product, for label appeal, or worse to unnaturally prolong shelf-life) that doesn’t really have a benefit for your skin. Who needs fluff? Keeping real is where it’s at.

And I’m excited to announce I’ll be working from a new studio that has space for retail as well as for friends gathering over a cup of tea.

The seeds for the relaunch of Paradise Skin Co. have been planted- Can’t wait for Spring!

What Farmers Do Off-Season

Here we are visiting Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands. What a wonderful vacation– full of sunshine, snorkeling, and sailing!

With Spring right around the corner, we’re getting itchy to get back to farming but there’s still lots of snow on the ground with very cold nights so it looks like we’ll be ‘vacationing’ a little while longer….

What about the Herbal?

Earlier this year, we had to close the online store for our handmade vegan skincare company, Paradise City Herbal, because the micro-farm was taking up all our time.

But Sheri is still making her herbal cremes, butters, salves, and oils, and will be debuting a few new creations this Fall.

You can find Paradise City Herbal skincare at River Valley Market in Northampton and at the Florence Wednesday Farmers Market.
