Amy was born and raised in North Carolina. She got her passion for farming from her Granny, who made a living raising dairy cows and selling milk. Amy started making her own soaps and body care products after her daughter developed severe eczema. For the past 12 years, Amy has been making wholesome, natural products using ingredients sourced right from her farm.
Amy’s farm is situated in Wilkes county just right across the Alexander County line near Linney’s Mill where she raises Nubian dairy goats, cows, chickens, pigs, ducks, guineas, and a livestock guardian dog named Willow.
