Located in Mooresville, Alabama 1818 Farms is named for the year Mooresville was incorporated—one year before Alabama became a state. Here you will find Babydoll Southdown sheep, a Nubian goat, cats, hens, a pot-bellied pig, mini pigs, and two Great Pyrenees guardian dogs. In the adjoining field, lavender and other herbs are grown for use in handmade beauty products and for wreaths and bouquets. The farm grows heirloom produce and flowers for local restaurants and vendors.

These products are all made using 100 percent natural ingredients and are handmade, hand poured, and hand-packaged.
