It's really late as I write this. I'll rewrite this at a later point, but for the moment, enjoy some raw (and kind of sleepy thoughts). This holiday season marks seven years of Farmer's Son Co.
I don't think I could tell you my official business anniversary date, but it was around this time seven years ago that I decided to do my first pop-up sale out in my hometown of Roblin. I had to find out if there was something to my candle making hobby. Could I do this?
I guess I could. And I would. And I did. And somehow, despite everything, here we are.
I haven't been the best at celebrating the wins over years (I'm working on it) and figured I should do something about that. So, I present to you my limited batch, seventh anniversary piece, Buffalo Check.
A new piece that's as personal as it is special. Back when I started all of this, a buffalo check plaid shirt was my calling card. You might not remember the name if you me at a pop-up, but you'd remember the candles and the buffalo check guy.
With notes of aged leather, flannel, lemon zest, a hint of cashmere, cedar, green leaves, fresh air and musk, I've been thinking about this one for awhile. It's cozy and warm and is a bit unexpected, but feels like you're walking into a big hug.
When you're the guy that loves buffalo check, you eventually just have to cave and make a candle with said name. The big ol' label on each is a nod to my classic big ol' labels.
I hope you enjoy.
