A visit to Downtown Jackson wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the local shops, and one of our first stops is always to FarmSudz. FarmSudz is a local business with locations in both Jackson and Chelsea, and they are all about handmade and natural items. FarmSudz is well known for their farm-fresh goat milk soap, but they have so many other products for both personal care and skincare that are perfect for every body out there!
There are a million reasons why we love this shop. For one, the smells when you walk in are divine, and only get better when you get up close and personal with their various products. We love their products and we might now have a slight soap addiction that we didn’t have in our Pre-FarmSudz life (how much soap is too much? Asking for a friend.). We love how engaged FarmSudz is with the local community, and how willing they were to jump in with us to offer a giveaway that kicked off our Summer Fun Bucket List. Perhaps what we love the most, though, is the people that run FarmSudz. Take this observation as an example:
It’s a Saturday afternoon, and FarmSudz has just opened. I head downtown to meet with FarmSudz Erin about the giveaway, and when I enter the shop there is a family with two littles already browsing the store. It’s clear that Erin remembers this family from a previous visit, and when the family comes to check-out, Erin has a long and engaging conversation with the little girl, asking follow-up questions with whatever they were discussing, and staying engaged with the little until her parents told her they needed to head out. As an observer, this was heartwarming, and exactly what makes FarmSudz a kid-friendly location. And as Erin told me, she could have chatted with that little all day. Truthfully, all of my interactions with FarmSudz staff have felt this personal and connected, and I always leave feeling happier than when I entered.
This isn’t the only reason we give FarmSudz our kid-friendly seal of approval. The goat-milk soap is soothing and gentle and perfect for skin of all ages, and Big loves checking out the scents. We also love the BooBooz Magic Balm, which is perfect for bug bites, skin irritations, and minor cuts, and we always have this in the backpack when we head out on our adventures. And these are just two of the kid-friendly products you can find at FarmSudz.
Not sure what would suit your child’s skin? Head into either location and ask the knowledgeable staff, and you might even score a free sample to try out! FarmSudz is participating in Downtown Day on June 26 from 12:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
