One of the most exciting moments we’ve had on the farm is when the bees arrived. That set us on a journey that was at once mystical, joyous, sometimes heartbreaking, and just so much fun…despite a few stings here and there. With the help of kind and wise neighbors who showed us the way, our Italian honeybees have been thriving of late and this season we are (to borrow from Eddie Izzard) ‘covered in honey.’ So we’re currently offering a limited batch of raw, wildflower honey here in the Mercantile. Order soon before we run out! We don’t know when we’ll have such a wonderful honey flow again. Available in 8-oz. jars. Made and harvested on the farm.
Joan created four special drawings for our custom note cards – a horse plowing a field, chickens running in the barnyard, big, beautiful sunflowers, and decorative ropes of the heirloom garlic she grows on her farm in Attalla, Alabama. Printed on handmade paper, with matching envelopes fashioned from alfalfa pellet and wheat bran feed bags, these tiny illustrations of country life are for your most special friends! Set of four with custom envelopes.
Plop, plop, fizz, fizz…and ahhhhhh! These darling little Bath Bombs by Bathing Betty are almost too darn cute to drop in your evening bath. Shaped like a cupcake, each comes with its own little rubber ducky. The bombs will immediately fizz up in the water, then turn it a tranquil turquoise blue for your own little ocean. And of course they smell pretty too, with scents of lavender, rosemary, lemongrass, clary sage and jasmine. While you and your ducky are drifting off to dreamland, the moisturizing ingredients, like cocoa and shea butter, go to work to make your skin super clean and soft without any greasy feeling or bathtub ring. “Betty” makes each cupcake bomb by hand using 100% all-natural ingredients. (She claims you could even eat one…but that’s probably not a good idea.) Ingredients: sodium bicarbonate, citric acid, cocoa butter, shea butter, grapeseed oil, sugar, meringue powder, essential oils, colorant, tartaric acid. Allergen note: The “icing” on these bath bombs is made with merinque powder which contains traces of egg.
We’re super excited to add this exquisite product to the Mercantile — hand stamped silver flatware by Laura Doe of Doe Imprints. Laura scours antique and flea markets around the country to find vintage, silverplated flatware that she imprints with a variety of whimsical and custom messages. We met Laura at a farmers market last summer and immediately bought up a whole bunch of her pieces to feature in the Mercantile. Choose from any of the items featured here, or email us with a custom order request [gatekeeper@cerakkofarm]. These flatware pieces are great conversation pieces when entertaining and will make any bride oh-so-happy when presented as a wedding gift. Also available in custom garden markers.
This citrusy soap is like that first ray of sunshine in the morning. Pure sweet orange essential oil gives the soap its light orange-citrus scent, enhanced by real bits of lemon, lime and orange peel. Made with all natural ingredients, the refreshing bar has a great lather and is perfect for your morning bath or shower. (Note: sweet orange essential oil is not recommended for skin breakouts or skin with heavy sun exposure.)
COUNTRY DAY SPA
An aromatic, herb-infused soap that will have you dreaming of your next spa visit. Scented with pure essential oils like thyme and eucalyptus, it has a soothing, natural blend that helps fight bacteria while boosting circulation and cell regeneration. The scent is a favorite with the fellas – but the ladies love it, too.
A farm favorite, our fragrant lavender bar makes everything feel all right. Infused with pure lavender essential oil to smooth the body while soothing the mind, this luxurious soap also has elder flowers to promote beautiful skin and ground elder berries that gently exfoliate.
This gritty little soap works hard. All natural and made with coffee grounds and, yes, hominy grits! We like to think of it as a “scrub in a soap.” Use this rich-lathering bar for body exfoliation and a good cleansing. Unscented except for the slighted whiff of earthy grits, it’s great for clean-up after gardening, barn chores or working in the yard.
It has a natural fragrance featuring a heady combination of coriander, jasmine and sweet tomato leaves, with just a hint of green woods. Created for us by Emily and Chelsea of The Rustic House in Chattanooga, this luxury soy farm fresh candle has a 50-hour burn time, cotton wick and was hand poured with love.

Announcing a “new arrival” in the Mercantile – Colorful Crowns! These precious hand-knit baby hats were created by our friend and new Cerakko partner Carol Ogg. We raised our kids together and now all our babies have flown the nest, leaving us just a little more time to enjoy doing more of the things we absolutely love to do. And for Carol, a busy healthcare consultant by day, that extra free time means meditative knitting. A lifelong knitter, she makes each baby crown by hand, using only the finest, 100% cotton she can find. Each hat fits a newborn to 3-month-old, and can be passed down for generations. The Cerakko Farm selection includes Sweet Pea Baby, Little Black Sheep and Rabbit Rabbit. Exceptional quality and just so darling, a baby hat by Carol makes a truly wonderful treasured keepsake. (And that little blanket you see beneath these crowns? That was made for our daughter Arielle by her grandmother and given to her when she was born.)
