Boughton Farm: Since 1853 our family has lived off the land. We believe in quality and things that are built to last. In fact, the original farm house is still lived in today! We employ residents of the local community and believe that hard work is often the most satisfying. We are active in the state and local Farm Bureau and support education on agriculture in our schools. Farming has changed over time but we still believe that the best things in life are the simplest, that family matters and that dinner around the kitchen table is often the most important part of the day.

Empty Bin Zero Waste: My goal and dream is to eventually open a physical store with all of the items I have now plus bulk food products and bulk ingredients so that people can make there own items such as the laundry detergent. I would love to have classes and demonstrations on these as well.

Every reusable item is one less wasted resource, one less item in the trash heap. Just one step at a time and we can change the world for future generations. (2018, cc)
