Ataraxy Farm was started in 2013 as a therapy farm to help my husband with his service related PTSD. It has since grown into a therapy farm to help others too. Many now come to the farm seeking animal therapy with our horses, donkeys, mule, goats and chickens. When we picked the name for our farm it had to have meaning. Ataraxy means a state of serene calmness. And it makes people that visit the farm feel just that, calm. We are a diary goat farm. We milk our goats daily and produce skin care and hair care products from the milk. The sales from our products go 100% back into the farm caring for our animals. The sales also allow us to keep offering our farm tours for free. Many are struggling with mental health issues. It is our goal to never charge for our tours.

Founder and Creator
While on maternity leave with my two small girls, I planned a lot of events with the support of local businesses. Whether it was food, decor or gift ideas; there was someone with the creativity and talent that could do whatever I envisioned. And then over a period of time, I discovered communities of small businesses lead by women all over who balance these side hustles while working full time jobs or raising families. They are usually one set of hands that show up to vendor markets on weekends, managing their own social media and travelling to stockists in their spare time.
This fuelled my passion project, Shop Small Co. in January 2020, our Small Shop Box was created. Our company supports these creative and talented women while giving people an opportunity to experience awesome locally handmade, handcrafted products.
Since becoming a mom, I have had a strong desire to support other women on their own journeys and appreciate the talented women who are trying to find a work/life balance, who do more so that they can spend more time with their families or just simply want to pursue a dream.
We hope you love your box as much as we loved putting it together!
