Double N Urban Farm and Apothecary is the creation of a happily married couple fulfilling their homesteading dream on a half acre in the Inglewood area of East Nashville. Not only are they fulfilling their dream, they are fulfilling our dreams of having Richland Park Farmer's Market as a one stop shop each week. Offering homegrown, home made products from deodorant to kitchen cleaners, Double N Urban Farm really seals the deal for those that want everything local.
The couple started farming in 2010 and began their first CSA in 2014, around the same time that they started the Apothecary. The products in the Apothecary line were born of necessity. Having sensitive skin combined with dry, cracked hands from the daily grind of farming, there was nothing for Nicole to do other than create the best products from scratch. On their half acre, there is a 25' x 50' bed of medicinal herbs growing in harmony with one another that are used for carefully crafted recipes for skin and body care, household cleaners, bug repellents, and tinctures. Double N Farms really shines in the community by showing no matter how little space you have, you can grow and cultivate something big.
When I think of cleaning my kitchen, there is nothing romantic about it until I think of lush herbs growing with antibacterial properties that are steeped for four weeks and hand bottled for me to use. These products are magical- not only are they all natural, nourishing, and amazingly scented from being so herbaceous, they are a unique way to support our local economy. Double N Farms offers their apothecary products each Saturday morning at the Richland Park Farmer's Market.
