Homegrown products are a fusion of natural materials that nourish us and keep us warm. Our vegetable dyes are harvested from plants grown on our farm, and our fibers come from the fleece of local sheep, and USDA organic cotton. Homegrown products are homespun, handcrafted and dyed- in- the- wool.

Smorgasburg Is For Foodies

Great food can be found at the Smor­gas­burg mar­ket located on the Williams­burg water­front. There are food pur­vey­ors from all over the city sell­ing pre­pared and pack­aged foods. GrowNYC has a stand, and we met veg­etable pro­duc­ers from The Brook­lyn Grange. We used their sage to make dye along with cab­bage from Health­way Farms…thanks Farmer Joe! There are pic­tures below of Dave from GrowNYC and Emilia, who learned how to spin yarn when she was a lit­tle girl in her home­land of North­ern Italy. Emilia has been a res­i­dent in Williams­burg since 1962 and she fre­quents the Smor­gas­burg market.
