Featured Maker: 1818 Farms
Life the way it used to be… Preserving history and honoring tradition by working a sustainable farm, producing handmade products, and educating the public on the value of self-sufficiency, craftsmanship, and a strong sense of community.
Located on three acres in the northwest corner of the historic village of Moorseville, AL (population 54), 1818 Farms is named for the year Mooresville was incorporated, one year before Alabama became a state. The happy animal residents on our little farm include Babydoll Southdown sheep, a Nubian goat, cats, hens, a pot-bellied pig, mini pigs, and two Great Pyrenees guardian dogs. In an adjacent field, lavender and other herbs are grown for use in hand-made beauty products and for wreaths and bouquets. Heirloom produce and flowers are also grown for local restaurants and vendors.
Parties of all types are hosted in the garden and adjacent Garden House. Children’s birthday parties, supper and garden club gatherings, and “Farm to Table” dinners hosted by some of the area’s top chefs all take place on our farm. The Garden House is also home to a series of classes included: raised bed gardening, food preservation, seed starting, raising backyard chickens, knitting, and wreath making. Additionally, the landscape of our historic farm makes a beautiful backdrop for wedding and special event photo shoots.
