Who we are:

Craig and Kari Bodmer:

  • Corporate refugees seeking a life of beauty, meaning and fresh, homegrown food.
  • Craig – Weaver (former corporate marketing executive)
  • Kari – Finisher, packager, shipper, customer relations representative, and doer of many other essential things (former CPA, former financial recruiter)

What inspires us:

  • Beautiful Baby Alpaca Yarn. Looking through the color book at all the different colored tassels of yarn, touching them one at a time, dreaming about new throw designs
  • The Ancient Art of Weaving. Sitting at a loom with a throw in process, looking at the fundamental technology of the instrument, and knowing that we’re using technology that is over 2,500 years old
  • The look on someone’s face as they engage with our throws or blankets for the first time
  • Sitting down at our dining room table with friends enjoying a meal of grass-fed beef steak and potatoes and salad, or free-range chicken and artichoke hearts and carrots, and knowing that everything on our plates was raised here, on our farm, by us
  • The view from the deck on the front of our house that looks out over the Panther Creek Valley toward the mountains beyond, covered by fir forests and draped here and there with whispers of clouds
  • The smell of fresh air in the morning reminiscent of camp
