Some of you may know that one of my side gigs is a little website called Fox & the Forest...When you hear me speak of making potions, it is for the online store there. The money generated from the online shop helps pay for the food and vetting for all the farm's critters.
The Fox and the Forest name has a few different origins depending on who you ask... Me or Christian....for years we had a little fox den on the front side of our property and really enjoyed watching the family come and go on the cameras that are up on the property. Mr. & Mrs. Fox never ever bothered the chickens, and several times, Pancha (our one-eyed rescue chicken) wandered over by their den and they never took advantage of her. It was such a sweet thing - to see this type of co-existing right in front of our eyes, on the farm, a known predator and its prey.... later I carved out a little trail through the pine forest on the farm which was situated behind the fox den and I decided "Fox and the Forest" was cute... and appropriate. This is where my affinity for the name came from....
Fox and the Forest started out as a little online platform for me to promote other woman-owned businesses, connect creative women to each other, to sell my own skincare creations, and have a way to support local rescues - you see a portion of all sales benefits local rescues as well!
I am off to walk Reece, feed the farm crew, and get ready for work - the job that pays for the farm ...... also guess what? TOMORROW IS FRIDAAAAAY!
