As the year draws to a close, Five Feline Farm is taking a moment to step aside and recount the changes we experienced.
All of this was made possible because of the support we received through the year from you. Our friends and customers. We made new friends on Saturday mornings at the 18th Street Farmer’s Market, at the fall Honeybee Festival in Paris, IL, on social media, and special group tours of the Farm. Your support, enthusiasm, words of encouragement and product feedback are invaluable as we move forward in this business.
We created new products and enhanced existing ones:
Spearmint and Hint O Mint Beek Balm
Patchouli, Bergamot and Winter Phantom Balm fragrances
Snow Balm-our own version of that smeary stuff in a little blue tub
White Chocolate Macadamia, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip and Dark Chocolate Cherry scones
New cat toy shapes
Some things around the Farm were improved or increased:
Market garden beds
More honeybee colonies
Online store expansion
And a few things discontinued:
Olive oil based Phantom balm
Oatmeal Raisin scones
Our most recent leap of faith was to purchase a building. The back of the building offers equipment storage and the front, with it’s cabin style porch, will house an on-farm store.
We will continue to preach our anthem of whole and natural living wherever possible. From food to skin care products, to repurposed materials in catnip toys, every step is about whole, natural and sustainable.
This past year, Five Feline Farm grew beyond our expectations. Our dreams are bigger for the coming year. Maybe even outlandish. Stick with us, you never know what might happen.
Thank you for your encouragement and support. Here’s to a wonderful 2017 for all of us.
