Featured vendor – Mirasol Farms
One local vendor from right across the river is Mirasol Farms, located in River Falls, Wisconsin. We carry a variety of their bar soaps and lotions.
We’re organic farmers and choose organic ingredients whenever possible. All of us express our values through our purchases, so I thought I’d say a little about why we “vote” this way with ours. Nearly all of the ingredients that we don’t grow ourselves come from far far away.
Consider your own favorite skin care ingredients. Cocoa butter, shea butter, olive oil, rosehip seed oil… they are grown by farmers in the Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso, Spain, the Andes… When you choose organic products, you support agricultural practices that don’t use synthetic pesticides, chemical fertilizers or genetically engineered ingredients. Every organic purchase is a vote for the future of honeybees, rivers and lakes, and the human family. It’s the shout heard ’round the world!
