Old Gates Farm Artist Feature and Giveaway! CLOSED



i am super pleased to introduce you to the wonderful hand crafted work of Old Gates Farm.

Kris, the face behind the Old Gates Farm Etsy shop, is a mama to 3 little boys, wife to a farmsteader, and an avid crafter when ever she can find a spare moment.
She actually grew up on the shores of Lake Michigan, attended the same college that i did and has family in the same area that Kenan and i used to live. What a small world. :) Ten years ago, she moved to Vermont, met her husband and has settled down to try and grow what they eat and raise their babies in a simple way. Old Gates Farm is located in Castleton, Vermont.

It is a small family run farm, with two milk cows, pigs and chickens. You can visit the website to learn more about the farm and see some amazing pictures of the gardens and land.
Kris has been crafting since she was very young-thanks to her crafty mom (dortdesigns.etsy.com) She's always knitting something and has been trying her hand at sewing after receiving a hand me down machine from an aunt.


She creates a variety of goods including handmade soaps, knitted goods, doll slings, market totes and more!



Besides oldgatesfarm.etsy.com, Kris sells her crafts, produce and meats at the local farmers markets during the summer and fall. She also vends local craft shows during the holiday season.



See something you can't live without?? You can purchase items through the etsy store here. Kris also loves to do custom work and can be contacted through etsy or the website (www.oldgatesfarm.com)

Kris has offered one reader a $15 GC/credit to Old Gates Farm Etsy shop.
