Our founder Sally and her husband Joel started Meadowlake Farm skin care in 2005 after Joel learned the art of organic beekeeping. Sally quickly became fascinated with the benefits of honey as a skin care agent and their journey began. A cosmetic chemist, she started tinkering with a few simple salves and eventually developed the line as we know it today. A truly 'green' chemist, she works exclusively with raw materials derived directly from nature. In addition to her green chemistry, Sally brings a strong business sense and love of science to the company, having enjoyed dual careers as a commercial architect and newborn intensive care nurse. Joel has been a small business owner, a skilled tradesman and a talented craftsman.
Sally's sister Judy joined Meadowlake Farm after having worked as a complex wound care specialist, a registered nurse and health care administrator. Before joining Meadowlake Farm she fulfilled her goal of enhancing her already broad knowledge of herbal medicine, becoming a certified family herbalist, a skill set which has proven invaluable to our company and our mission.
