When one of my littles was born (I’m sure it was the second one, but everything is a bit of a blur), she received a little pack of Four Cow Farm products from a family friend. I thought it was such a thoughtful gift, especially because the products were all natural and handmade on an Australian green energy family farm.
Every single product is still made by hand on that Queensland farm, overseen every day by “Nanna”, the midwife, mum and grandmother who started it all. Her suppliers are all Australian, and every single ingredient is premium food-grade, making them very safe for everyone in the family. The products are also free from parabens, sulfates, artificial fragrances, synthetic detergents, petrochemicals, mineral oils, lanolin, chlorinated water, phalates, and other stuff I’ve never heard of before.
I kept buying the products once our first lot ran out, and I got a little bit addicted to using the baby oil in my nightly bath during winter! A good addiction though, my skin was so soft. When I heard their story, I loved them even more.
The products are also all totally biodegradable and all packaging is 100% recyclable. I’m told even the water that goes into the products is fresh rainwater collected and purified on the farm – it’s a whole family company with whole environment ideals.
Even better – three of you will win a lovely little gift pack from Four Cow Farm, consisting of a Starter Pack of their popular products, and a beautiful Pohnpei Sponge, which is hand-grown and sustainably farmed in the amazing waters of Pohnpei Island in Micronesia.
All you have to do is leave a comment and tell us what was your favourite baby gift? (My other favourite was a Wee Amigo swaddle).
