What started out as a passing interest for Natasha McCrary’s son has turned into a full fledged farm with the primary mission of promoting and saving baby doll sheep. As the years progressed, the farm has now become a source of cut flowers, essential oil products, farm events and more. I talk to Natasha about how she goes about growing cut flowers in her home state of Alabama. For anyone wanting to venture into the business of cut flowers or if you want to grow your own, she is a wealth of knowledge… from must have varieties, when to plant, when to harvest and more. And of course we learn what baby doll sheep are!

Welcome back to the Porch Cast!

Today, I sit down with Natasha McCrary, founder of 1818 Farms in Moorseville, Alabama, and recipient of Amazon’s Woman-Owned Small Business of the Year award! Natasha jumped in to farming after being in sales and computer programming. She started out with only a few sheep, to eventually adding goats, pigs, chickens and more! In a combined effort between family and a strong business team, she has managed to grow her farm and business to what it is today. She tells us her advice on women starting their own business, what she wants us to know about farming, and how her business plan changed in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

It was such an honor to share our farm story with Debra Prinzing of Slow Flowers in her latest podcast episode. During our conversation, we dive into all things flowers, beauty and of course, babydoll sheep. I hope you will listen along to our conversation and that you learn a little more about our family farm.



I enjoyed telling our farm story and sharing tips on season extension and achieving sustainability in a flower farm business on The Flower Podcast. Below you will find the podcast link, as well as the Youtube video of our chat.
