Small Business Saturday & Craftin' Outlaws shoppers!

Part of us wanted to think that this holiday season would be cozy, but the truth is- our community is not well and as a company with deep community roots, it concerns us. The spread of COVID-19 isn’t just a public health issue- it threatens the very fabric in which our social-political-economic lives are woven. While this is certainly a different kind of holiday season, gift giving may be more important now than ever.

Make/Do Farm

Last month, Haven customers may have experienced shipping and fulfillment delays- and it's not because of Covid-19!Lily, our staff herbalist and sourcing specialist, moved her family out of Columbus and onto a farm in Madison county. Here, she will homestead and also grow herbs for Haven's needs among other farming. Her classes will be moving to the farm, too- as will Haven's production and order fulfillment. After the move and getting plants into the ground, the next steps for Haven are to renovate the old dairy barn and milking rooms into production facilities and storage for Haven!
