Grandpa always said in gardening, a crop grown in the same field year after year wouldn’t yield successful crops. We too believe a soil change is good. If we don’t change and continually evolve, we will fail to produce the same kind of experiences you have grown to love. It’s what we do.
Here's grandpa in 1926 at age 6 picking cucumbers with his wagon. Farming, growing things and family have been a staple in our lives from the beginning.
The last six years have been the best and most consuming journey of our lives. The crazy-good support we have had from the community, our customers, friends and family is overwhelming. The time has come for our soil to be churned up a bit. True to our roots all along, anyone who really knows us, also knows we have wanted a farm for a long time. And we bought one in September.
Since our humble beginning 2012 on Jefferson Street, we have grown unbelievably fast thanks to all of you. When we began this journey, our goal was to simplify our life and slow down our crazy world filled with two full time jobs, chaotic sports schedules and lots of corporate travel. Our kids were just beginning middle school and life seemed to be speeding up, even as we were trying to slow it down.
What’s most important to us is to continue to be a small part of each person’s story where they are in their journey. We also want to testify that God is most definitely using us as a way to serve others. So our sweet little version of a farm began planting roots in mid October moving our family, with a vision of planting our pumpkins, and seeding our flowers and living a bit off-the-grid.
We have moved The Marshmallow Monkey to our farm. Our farm is 25 minutes southeast of our previous location nestled off of S.R. 252. It’s between Morgantown and Martinsville, Indiana. When you visit, every single part of the farm experience is being designed with special touches that have been well thought out for you. We hope when you visit, you are reminded of the new beginning we embark upon and how you are part of our ever-evolving story. This has been a dream come true thanks to all of the love and support of our monkey followers, friends and family.
Aside from moving, we have officially launched our new website that will allow you all exclusive previews and ability to buy product BEFORE anyone else can in the store with 24/7 access. We will also be offering in-store pickup, local delivery and flat rate shipping. The new website has been designed with love and purpose and a newfound focus on home, health, happiness. You can expect DIY How-Tos, recipes, and keep up with our journey on the farm. We want to be more connected with you where you are.
We have streamlined our hours on the farm; open on Fridays and Saturdays only from 10am-4pm with online access to our products 24/7, 365 days a year. Shifting hours will help us keep things fresh. And like grandpa said, with a soil change, a new crop emerges. We too, will be keeping things new every week.
As we transition in 2019 with fewer hours throughout the week this will allow us more time for our family, to fulfill online orders and deliveries, serve you with interior design House Calls, DIY classes and more. Want something throughout the week? Fresh flowers? A Gift? Just give us a call and we will deliver it.
We can’t wait to share our new adventure with you. So, tune in and visit often to get the latest news on the farm and what’s coming next.
Lord knows, we aren’t finished.
