Hello and thanks for stopping by…..
For those of you who haven’t met me yet, my name is Melanie. Back in the fall of 2007 I was given the opportunity to inherit this business from a couple of my greatest lifelong friends. They were ready to take on new journeys in life and so was I. They taught me all I needed to know to get started & for sure I’ll admit, I’ve still found ways to make my own set of mistakes to learn from. That’s the joy of it all, I’m constantly learning.
Throughout life many find that the place they are most attached to is the place they grew up. I grew up on Sugar Hill surrounded by 9000 acres of New York State Forest. Fortunately it didn’t take me long after moving away to get myself right back home. Back to basics and back to what I call: the real life. In my rustic home amid all the simple pleasures, life really is good.
Sugarhill Farm has enabled me to pass on some of this goodness to you. Not only are the products we make good for you, but they’re earth friendly. They contain no synthetic chemicals, alcohol or petroleum. Our products are made from plants and your skin will tell the difference.
Throughout this site & on the labels of the products you’ll probably see a lot of “we” and “our”. I’ve continued this tradition because I’ve always got a helper in the wings. Family, friends & even customers are always generous with their time. Me, well, the only thing special about me is that I’ve been entrusted to mix it all up & bottle it. I can honestly say: I love my job!
Another thing I love is getting to meet some of the most interesting people, just like you. I say this because if you’re taking the time to read this, you’ve got character & drive to learn about what’s good for you. We are what we feed our minds & bodies. Holistic approaches to a healthy lifestyle can only make you feel more complete as a person. Absorbing knowledge about how to take care of yourself and your family helps to put you in control. Eating nutritious foods give us the power we need to conquer most anything. Using this same concept to govern the type of products you use on your skin only makes sense.
Thank you! Thank You! Thank you….for all of your feedback on how our products are working for you. You would not believe the rush I receive when someone tells me how the Extracare cream helped their Dad’s eczema or how the Sore Muscle Salve makes the pain bearable so they can sleep at night. And the smiles….I live for happy people sharing their energy with me. Thank you so much for introducing yourself at shows and taking time to read & explore. I love meeting people that really care about the earth and all it has to offer. It’s as our motto says, “Earth is our first resort.”
