All of our products are carefully made or sourced to ensure they follow our strict environmental and human rights guidelines. We source the highest quality ingredients and materials, as close to nature and as clean, organic and chemical-free as possible. Orders are shipped using limited packaging that is either biodegradable, recyclable or reusable, minimal plastic (goal: zero to minimal waste)! And our products are designed to be long-lasting for multiple uses.
We emphasize a “circular” mindset, or consideration for the entire lifecycle of an item. Specifically, our Lady Farmer clothing is designed for biodegradability, which is why we don’t use elastic, zippers, closures, plastic buttons, etc. Anything on the garment that is not the fabric itself can be easily removed and recycled. The fabrics we use (hemp, organic cotton, linen, lyocell, wool) are selected with the highest regard for human and planetary health, from the cultivation of the raw materials, to production, throughout consumer use and ultimately to the end of the product’s functional life.
Our partners are often local, independently-owned small businesses, usually owned and operated by women!
Yes! We offer free resources throughout our website that are open to everyone.
Our blog hosts recipes, interviews, expert guest features, tips and industry information.
Our podcast The Good Dirt offers actionable takeaways to make our lives and the planet a little better.
We host live videos and behind the scenes of our Slow Living Retreat on Instagram.
Each year we host our Slow Living Challenge where we share weekly steps to live a slower, more sustainable day-to-day.
Our Pinterest page is a growing collection of curated books, resources, tips, guides, and how-to for slow living. We link to both Lady Farmer resources and organizations that offer wonderful advice for mending, baking, cooking, gathering, foraging, gardening, farming, and more.
Our annual retreat is a time to gather with others who embrace a slow-living lifestyle and learn from one another. We bring together specialists in fields such as fermentation, gardening, food preparation, mending, and mindful movement. We offer presentations and discussions on relevant topics such as slow fashion and conscious consumerism, workshops on various topics including natural dyeing, baking with sourdough, self-care and yoga, and slow living experiences such as nature immersions and farm-to-table meals to reconnect you with the earth. The weekend-long retreat has been in-person historically but will be online in 2020 due to Covid19 restrictions. Learn more about this year’s retreat here.
No, we do not offer patterns of our garments at this time.
We understand that our clothing costs more than consumers are accustomed to paying. These items are produced outside of the toxic, exploitative system that is the norm in the fashion industry. However, it is completely free to join our community of people looking for a simpler, more sustainable, and earth-centered lifestyle. We offer free resources in the form of blogs, articles, recipes, and podcast interviews, all found on our site and social media channels.
We are committed to providing you with the best customer service experience possible. We offer free exchanges or returns for store credit within 14 days of receipt of your product, excluding our Essential Collection garments. After this window, we are happy to help facilitate returns/exchanges, but the customer will be responsible for shipping costs. Essential Collection garments are final sale.
For Line + Tow & Essential Collection apparel garments, see product listings for sizing information. If you need further assistance, don’t hesitate to reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org!
We are always working to grow and improve our apparel offerings. This applies to size inclusivity as well! While we don’t have plus sizes at this time, all the garments we have currently on hand are designed to be adjustable and forgiving.
Slow Living Retreat
The Lady Farmer Virtual Slow Living Retreat is an online event.
Our annual retreat is a time to gather with others who embrace a slow-living lifestyle and learn from one another. We bring together specialists in fields such as fermentation, gardening, food preparation, mending, and mindful movement. We offer presentations and discussions on relevant topics such as slow fashion and conscious consumerism, workshops on various topics including natural dyeing, baking with sourdough, self-care and yoga, and slow living experiences such as nature immersions and farm-to-table meals to reconnect you with the earth. The weekend-long retreat has been in-person historically, but was online in 2020 and will be online again in 2021.
Our 2021 Retreat will be held December 3-4. You can read more about the schedule here.
The retreat will be hosted on Zoom. A full list of any recommended materials will be emailed to class attendees in advance of the retreat. If you have any questions specific to your workshops, please email us at email@example.com.
No! Attendees can choose to be on camera or off.
We love that you and your family or friends want to experience the weekend together! Logistically, this would still mean that everyone needs an individual registration in order to attend the workshops, classes, and speaking engagements.
We are unable to offer group discount rates.
Of course, we’d love to have you! Recordings are included in ticket price for 3 months after the event, so if you can't make a workshop due to time differences, it's no problem!
Due to the nature of this event, we are unable to issue returns or refunds.
We are, however, happy to transfer your registration to a friend of your choice if you are unable to attend!
You may also donate your ticket to our scholarship program. Reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know if you prefer to transfer your registration to another person specifically or to the scholarship fund!
Feel free to send us a note! We are a small business and can’t promise a 24-hour response, but we will do our best to get back to you within a few days. We love hearing from our community – your requests and recommendations have led to many improvements for our events, products, and digital presence. Shoot us an email at email@example.com.
