Our Story

Lady Farmer was formed in response to the growing movement of people who identify with nature and its cycles, simple comforts, tradition and sustainability. It has been such a wonderful journey as the Lady Farmer community continues to grow each year with more slow living seekers and dreamers. Today, we host a weekly podcast, seasonal events, and an engaged virtual community via our online platform, The ALMANAC.

About Us

Mother-daughter duo Mary & Emma Kingsley joined forces when they realized their shared need for more ethically produced and sustainable clothing that fit their lifestyle. Their efforts quickly expanded beyond their initial apparel production to an educational and community platform, connecting people with big ideas, actionable steps, and passionate leaders across multiple disciplines in the realms of slow living and sustainability.

Today, Lady Farmer continues to cultivate a community that fosters independence from consumer systems that are harmful to humans and our planet. We encourage growing awareness and teach ethical sourcing of food, clothing, and products of daily life that are healthful to humans and regenerative to our lives, our spirits - and our soil!

Who is a Lady Farmer?

The Lady Farmer cares deeply about personal connection, cultivating meaningful relationships with the people in their life and the land under their feet. They understand their individual impact on the world and our future, have a motherly instinct whether for their own children or others, and live the mantra “it takes a village” in every aspect of their life. Most importantly, they’re globally-minded but locally invested. Whether they own or cultivate country acreage, tend to a home garden, or dwell in the city with a desire to create space in their life for sustainable living, The Lady Farmer sows the seeds of slow living all around them.

We are Lady Farmers, and we invite you to join us.
