Acres of Love at Alabama’s 1818 Farms

Acres of Love at 1818 Farms
Natasha McCrary, owner of 1818 Farms.

Making her way through aisles of colorful blooms, Natasha McCrary’s smile broadens as affectionate ‘Babydoll’ Southdown sheep nuzzle into her open arms. “I love everything about the farm, but the sheep are my favorite,” says Natasha, whose passion for nature, affinity for flowers, and entrepreneurial spirit sustain 1818 Farms in tiny Mooresville, Alabama.

Natasha’s farming life unfurled when her family bought a rare breed of sheep in 2000. The physical effects of farm labor inspired her to create luxurious bath and body products, which are sold online and in specialty stores across the country.
