Who We Are
We are Rachel + Jon Carpenter, farmers, makers, lovers of the outdoors, who are fortunate to tend 13 acres organically on our farm in Joelton, TN, just 30 minutes outside of Nashville. We've been on this land since fall of 2017, and are settling into our long-anticipated vocations as farmers.
We grow herbs and flowers using sustainable practices - including permaculture and biodynamics. We also craft organic body care products in small batches here on our farm using herbs + flowers we grow.
Co-Owner, Skincare Crafter, Farmer, + Herbalist-in-Training
Rachel is a farmer, educator, herbal creator, writer, and yoga instructor. She became interested in holistic living several years ago, at which time she passionately dove into this realm. Rachel’s passion + love for the earth has sent her on a journey to pursue + understand this connection through years of work on organic farms, teaching environmental + sustainability education at a high school, and studying herbalism + nutrition.
She founded Original Organics Herbals (now Good Flower Farm) in 2014 with her first product of organic lip balms she sold on Etsy.
Now she finds herself living her actual dream of owning and running a farm, unexpectedly putting down roots near her hometown of Nashville after living "up north" for many years. In addition to farming, making skincare products, and selling at various markets and events around Nashville, Rachel enjoys running, yoga, cross country skiing, cooking, trying new coffee, and playing with her dog Branch.
