OUR MISSION

To cultivate community, connection, peace and joy.

We aim to foster more alcohol and drug-free experiences that entice all of the senses through our ritually crafted herbal Elixirs. Our Apothecary and intentional events and workshops provide customers with quality handcrafted herbal products and authentic offerings intentionally curated to emphasize the vital link between mental health and heart-centered living.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

 

In a productivity focused world, we highlight the importance of slow, intentional living.

The correlation between the Earth and Wellness is the heart of Barefood&Barefoot. Our offerings emphasize this relationship through the use of herbalism and other Earth-based practices to assist individuals in reestablishing their relationship with the natural world, and inherently, themselves in order to restore their mental, physical, emotional and spiritual well being

OUR VALUES

Alcohol & Drug Free Experiences

We believe in the importance of alcohol and drug-free experiences to support mental, physical, emotional and spiritual well-being of individuals, the community they are part of and the world as a whole. We foster these experiences by sharing our alternative offerings at events and in community spaces including festivals and music events, where the use of drugs and alcohol are common.

Sustainability & Community

Our motto is “Bridging Mind, Heart and Earth.” As we work so closely with the Earth, we believe it is vitally important to be intentional with our sourcing, as to create minimal impact on our local ecosystem and the Earth as a whole. From our ingredients to our packaging, we aim to source as local and sustainable as possible. We source our ingredients from local small businesses and farms. Almost all of our packaging is recycled, reused/reusable or compostable.

Barefood&Barefoot continues to grow for the betterment of the individuals who we cross paths with, the collective and Earth as whole. Our continued vision includes growing most of the herbs we use in our products ourselves and to do so through a wild, regenerative garden. We are always looking for more local partners to source from and collaborations with other local, small businesses!

Accessibility & Inclusivity

Through our Apothecary, we create easy consume, delicious and versatile herbal products to allow for hassle free assimilation to our customers day to day life and honey-based herbal simple syrups as accessible alternatives to conventional and alcoholic beverages.

We believe in a one-on-one community-based business approach, which means we are continuously building relationships with customers and helping them to understand the ingredients and intention behind our offerings, in order to help implement sustainable and natural ways of living into their lives. We offer workshops, free educational content, and educational materials for purchase so our customers can be empowered to and have the tools for taking control of their health and well being.

We offer our products and workshops on the lower end of the price scale, provide discounts for members of the BIPOC community and offer a sliding scale menu for our Elixir Bar. We are able to offer our products and services for other exchanges, as well or at discounted prices for those who feel they will be supportive for them, but may not have the financial means to obtain them at that time.
