Welcome to Sanka Family Farm! I’m Allison, the human behind our private hobby farm. You’ll find me out in the yard with our 5 hens, crafting soaps and skin salves, or coming up with new antics for Mabel, our barred rock hen, for our t-shirts, mugs, and greeting cards.
About Sanka Family Farm
Sanka Family Farm is a hobby farm located in suburban Philadelphia. We have five hens, a bunch of woodland animals, and a small vegetable garden in the summer. A lifelong crafter, I make handmade soaps, lip balms, skin balms, lotion bars and sell them online in the Sanka Family Farm Etsy Shop.
100% to Farm Animal Rescue Charities
All net proceeds from the sales of our handmade items in our Etsy Store will benefit a different 501(c)(3) animal rescue or sanctuary each month from September – December each year. I’m proud to be a 5-star rated seller on Etsy. I use natural, organic, chemical-free ingredients when possible, and I do not test anything I make on animals. (The chickens would not like that.)
Supporting Farm Animal Rescues
So why did I decide to give all my profits away, like I’m Paul Newman or something? Crafting is my hobby. I wanted to use my crafting for good, and I liked the idea of fundraising in this way. It seems to be working well! But there are more reasons. Years ago, before Etsy existed, I made a business of a hobby (online yarn and craft store), and after nearly 7 years, it became more work and less fun. Now, I strive to use my craft powers to create beautiful, functional, good quality products for a fair price, and to financially support organizations I care about. The prices I charge cover my costs, and the profit goes to the beneficiary 501(c)(3) certified organization. To learn more about who we support, visit our blog.
I love making things, people enjoy the things I make, and adorable animals get the medical care and shelter they need. It’s a win for all!
Thank you for visiting and supporting the Sanka Family Farm store!
