Creating Year-Round Revenue Streams in Agriculture with Natasha McCrary
The founder and owner of 1818 Farms is Natasha McCrary. Natasha grew up in Florence, Alabama, and attended the University of Alabama for her college education. In 2011, Natasha became interested in starting a family-run farm to teach her children about sustainability and the importance of the land. Natasha had no experience raising farm animals like Southdown Babydoll sheep, let alone running a farm. But she had an idea of how she could make it work: combine the farm with a small business that would help cover the cost of food for the animals. The result was a flourishing flower farm and a line of all-natural beauty and lifestyle products focused on sustainability.
1818 Farms’ products are now sold in 47 states and online. In 2019, 1818 Farms was recognized nationally for winning Amazon’s Woman-Owned Small Business of the Year Award. As a result of this great success, Natasha is sharing her story nationwide to encourage other small-business owners that growing a business is possible with the right tools in place
