The Misty Blue Farm Philosophy
We named our farm Misty Blue Farm because everything here is so blue you'd almost think Mother Nature painted it in broad strokes with a single brush …. the fat green hills that turn a slate grey hue after a rainstorm.... the color of the bedrock in the streambed..... the blue of the sky in the summer evenings. Imagine pristine water flowing for so long that everything but the blue-black bedrock has been worn away. Imagine the distant verdant mountains of Vermont shaded in purple-blue. This is where we live and this is where your skincare is made - in a snug little valley in the Green Mountain uplands along the New York - Vermont border. There is no place like it in all the world. And this is why we are Misty Blue Farm. The blue surrounds us here, pervades us, doesn't let us go. We breathe it in and exhale it out.
The philosophy of our work in the farm formulary flows from the heritage left to us from our ancestors. These are the people who worked these lands and also protected them as an heirloom to pass down to future generations. They embraced technology, surprisingly, as well - evidenced by the early 18th century remnants of the water-wheel-driven saw mill at the top of the old stone dam here on the farm - state of the art technology in its' day. This is land where things were made and folks worked hard. This land still harbors those people.
Our skincare is brought to you both by people with dirt under their fingernails and by people who believe in the positive power of modern science and technology. It may sound incongruous, but really it is not. Amazingly, stunningly, this place cultivates both.
Our goal here on the farm is to formulate skincare that takes care of you and nurtures you and imbues you with a sense of what we feel for this place and this land. Come dive into the Misty Blue with us.
