From Our Family To Yours
We are The Chrisenberrys. We live on our farm in the Sam Houston National Forest, in Montgomery, TX. We love God. We love family. We love our community, and we love slowly getting back to the basics and trying to gravitate toward the most natural way of living.
I still drink Coke and despite being a real farmer, my husband feels like a poser every time he wears those handsome boots he won at a fundraising auction. So basically, we haven’t gotten it all figured out yet…but we’re trying!
Why Sown Harvest?
The products. I tried Sunshine Farm products many years ago when we first bought our farm and they stood my rigorous test of: do I use it more than once.
I’m a notorious sucker for the local farmer’s markets and spending way too much on things I’ll never eat or use. I just love small business, y’all! But Lisa’s CBD was the first my husband actually had results from (and he’s a hard critic) and her lotions were the first I ever experienced being so perfectly dreamy, functional and didn’t actually feel “organic-ey” if you know what I mean. So when the tiny sliver of my first ever Sunshine Farms bar soap finally disappeared and I finished off my first bottle of Moisture Mist, and after I had listened to my husband tell all our friends about the first CBD that actually worked, I knew we’d finally found something different.
I’ve been a foodie and lover of cooking since I was a child, as I come from a long line of crazy, Cajun, matriarchal women. Arts, crafting, crocheting, curating and making natural products, and a little lotion witchcraftery (except we love Jesus!) just fell right in to place in my life. When Lisa told me she was retiring, the opportunity to pick up where she was leaving off, along with the overwhelming customer support, was a chance I just couldn’t pass up.
Head Soap Maker,
Our 15-acre farm in the Sam Houston National Forest is the home to Coturnix quail, chickens, ducks, rabbits, geese, peacocks, lambs, pigs, goats, cattle, donkeys, alpacas, emus, and even a couple of gentle bearded dragons. All Sown Harvest or Agape Farms products are handmade, manufactured, designed and labeled on-site in our “lab” or “Momma’s Studio” which is surrounded by my slowly evolving herb garden and fruit orchard. Although most of our animals are basically pets, we actively raise and sell quail & ducks for meat and eggs, along with rabbits and lambs for meat.
We opened for farm tours during Covid to give families an opportunity to get out and enjoy the fresh air and we’ve enjoyed partnering and growing with our local community ever since. We offer ourselves as an event space, we host fundraisers, and have several AirBNBs and primitive camp spots available as well. It’s always an adventure!!
