We are excited to announce our very first giveaway with our favorite local soap maker Rainwater Farm! Find out how to enter at the end of this post. Rainwater Farm originated in the beautiful Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee, where Colette Souder began making soap and selling it to her community. Now joined by daughter Kathleen, Rainwater Farm has spread to Nashville, bringing their all-natural, environmentally-friendly products to farmers markets here in town.
With the motto “Do No Harm”, Rainwater Farm makes all of its products with the utmost care for their customers and the environment. We love all of their products, but some of our favorites include the Oatmeal Lavender soap, the Illuminating Face Serum, and the Healing Salve. Visit their website to order online or for information on where they will be selling next in both East and Middle Tennessee. Here in Nashville, you can find Kathleen at the 12 South Farmer’s Market every Tuesday and the East Nashville Farmer’s Market every Wednesday.
Kathleen, who recently moved to Nashville’s 12 South neighborhood, answered some questions for us about Nashville, Rainwater Farm, and her new hood: What’s your favorite Rainwater Farm product? That’s a tie between the illuminating Facial Serum and our Healing Salve. It’s a family joke that we use the Healing Salve for anything and everything: cuts, scrapes, bug bites, dry cuticles, and bad breakups – I really can’t live without it. What’s your favorite thing about the 12 South Farmers’ Market? Participating in a market two blocks from my home with the most amazing food and products around is just the best. Also, I love supporting local, sustainable companies and families. What’s your favorite 12 South spot? My husband and I joke that our main draw to 12 South was Jeni’s, which I’ve been obsessed with for years. It may or may not be a joke… What’s your favorite Nashville spot? We keep going back to the Station Inn and bring almost all of our out-of-town guests there. It’s the epitome of Nashville, and we just love it. What’s next for Rainwater Farm in 2015? Growing our family business in my new hometown and getting to know all of our new Nashville neighbors!
Now that you’re ready to order one of everything from Rainwater Farm, we have an exciting opportunity to win a Rainwater Farm Everyday Essentials gift pack! The gift includes: Rosemary Mint Foaming Hand Soap, Citrus Lip Balm, travel-sized Healing Salve, Bug Repellent Spray, Oatmeal Lavender Soap, and Sea Salt Acne Soap. Pretty amazing if you ask us!
