The story of
Fox Farm Home
Guided by the seasons many of the projects here are rooted in nature and outdoor play. For us, creative living is not about the product, but the process. Finding delight in what is simple and gradually shifting our mindset to make ordinary days feel a little more magical.
Our grandparents lived on Fox Farm Road and days spent with them meant adventures outside exploring the prairie and pond or time creating in the workshop. Truly, this space is an ode to both sets of our grandparents who fostered a love of the outdoors and all things handmade and homegrown. Beyond nurturing our creative spirits, they were excellent teachers with a desire to pass down the skills and traditions they loved. Sewing, wood working, homemade meals, camping, music, gardening, toy making, the list goes on and on.
Our grandparents taught us to be lifelong learners, to not just be inspired, but to make those ideas into something tangible. As we dreamed about creating a space to share our love of learning, sparking creativity in our children’s lives and finding delight and adventure in everyday life, Fox Farm Home was slowly created.
We hope you find our little corner of the internet to be a place you can come to and find both the inspiration and tools to create something beautiful and tangible in your own life. Projects and adventures you can create and enjoy with your children. Encouragement in parenting. Our hope is that it is a safe, soft resting ground when life is moving at lightening speed around you and you feel at ease to ask questions, be a beginner and learn alongside of us. We hope to reclaim joy in your every day tasks whether it be raising kids, creating a home or cultivating a community around yourself. We are are here for you in whatever season you find yourself in.
