    What Makes Us Savvy

    Through preservation-minded, sustainable business and farming practices, Stoney Mountain Farm provides all natural, eco-friendly, 100% wool products to its customers. Wool Dryer Balls offer the consumer a healthy alternative to their daily laundry needs. They soften clothes without the toxins in most laundry softeners and they reduce drying time, saving energy, hence reducing our carbon footprint. Our wool products are made from raw materials grown here in the US offering the consumer transparency. So many of the wool products in the market are made from chemically treated wool. We know we are bringing a product to the market that is grown using humane standards, washed with chemical free biodegradable soaps and made using ethical employment standards.

    Savvy's Picks

    Eco-Friendly Wool Dryer Balls

    Savvy Nugget

    A magical place nestled in the Piedmont area of N.C. Rich in history and agriculture. As consumers we have learned to ask questions and source healthy options for the food we put in our bodies, we need the same due diligence for our furnishings, our clothing and everything in our living environments.

    Planet + Plants

    Although our farm adheres to the Organic standards we are not certified. We do not use any chemicals on our farm, we do not apply synthetic fertilizers or feed GMO's. All of our wool products are washed with soaps free from fragrance, colorants, parabens, or other chemicals and our soaps are 100% biodegradable. We refer to them as “Balls with a Cause” because they’re good for the planet (energy savings with renewable, sustainable material), they create jobs in the US for women working to make ends meet, and they support sustainable agricultural practices in the USA.  All handmade!

    Story

    Through preservation-minded, sustainable business and farming practices, Stoney Mountain Farm provides all natural, eco-friendly, 100% wool products to its customers. Stoney Mountain Farm was founded 12 years ago from a desire to connect with the earth and mother nature. Through our US farming practices we have developed a product that aligns with our philosophy to offer the consumer healthier choices all the while protecting mother natures natural resources

    Our farm sits on 56 acres of beautiful Earth just off the beaten path in Burlington, North Carolina.  We have owned the farm since 2005 and have been raising sheep, Briard dogs, llamas and chickens ever since.  Using the wool from our flock of Navajo Churro, Corriedale and Dorset sheep we make a variety of eco-friendly, 100% wool products designed to enhance your lives.  In every way, we seek to preserve the ways of the past, while honoring Mother Nature.  Preservation is always of utmost importance in all our decision making.   We neither plow or mow aggressively.  We do not use synthetic or commercial fertilizers.  We have implemented multiple conservation programs on the farm, including water and forestry.   We practice rotational grazing for the health of our sheep and our pastures.  We do not use chemicals on our land or animals. Mother nature tells us what and where to plant, when to breed, wean and feed.  We adhere to permaculture principles, meaning that each part of our diverse farm benefits from and is a benefit to several other parts of our operation. We consider ourselves stewards of this land and our animals.

     

    Going Forward

    We have experience using third party chemical toxicology tools. We work with our suppliers/manufacturers to actively reduce contamination and/or for accuracy and purity of the ingredients. We actively take part in sustainable efforts through ingredients we choose, packaging, carbon footprint and/or recycling focuses.
