Welcome to the farm!
We are a small family business specializing in raw, unpasteurized wildflower honey, wool and handmade soap. The business is headquartered at That'll Do Farm in rural Northern Ohio, about an hour south of Cleveland.
Our lovely honeybees live on 18 beautiful, chemical-free acres of fruit trees, wildflower, herbs and clover. We use organic beekeeping leaving the bees to do just as nature intended thus producing raw, unprocessed honey with all the natural goodness and nutrients the bees were smart enough to put into it.
In addition to being honey purists, we are fiber enthusiasts raising Huacaya and Suri Alpacas, colored Angora Goats and CVM/Romeldale sheep. We also purchase fiber from other small Ohio farms to create our 100% made-in-America yarn and felted wool dryer balls.
In search of all things natural, we formulated our own all natural lavender laundry soap. It is gentle enough for the most sensitive skin, yet tough enough to tackle the toughest stains. Just requiring one small scoop per load and getting up to 100 loads per jar, our laundry soap is more cost efficient than conventional brands and leaves your clothes soft, bright and always clean without the use of synthetic chemicals or fillers.
Mike Wargo is our beekeeper, goat wrangler and sheep farmer. After graduating from Appalachian State University in Boone, N.C., Mike decided to come back to Ohio to farm and start Brighton Wool & Honey Co.
Maggie Osborn, a true southerner, also an Appalachian State grad, creates the recipes and formulas for all our soaps and cleaning products. She is learning to adjust to Ohio's temperatures.
When not at the farm, these two can be found manning Brighton Wool & Honey Co.'s booths at various farmers' markets and craft shows around Northeast Ohio.
