We had the good fortune of connecting with Jason Allen and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jason, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
We run a small farm, youtube channel, and soap business. We want to provide skin care products to people that we know are safe and completely natural. On our farm and youtube channel our goal is to show people that no matter how much space you have, you can grow your own food and be more self-sufficient.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
My wife Lauren and I both have full-time jobs while running our soap business, farm, and youtube channel. I am a police officer and my wife is an artisan butcher. We have such a strong desire to encourage people to be more self-sufficient and rely less on chemicals and grocery stores.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Get outside the perimeter and explore the farmers markets in the area.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My mom, Sabra, who is he reason we were able to start the farm.
