Live From The New York Stock Exchange
August 2, 2019, Shannon McLinden, President of FarmHouse Fresh, was interviewed live on the Cheddar business news network, which covers the most innovative executives, founders, products, and technologies transforming our lives and economy. The company broadcasts from the trading floor of the New York Stock Exchange. This ChedHer segment, sponsored by Chase Bank, celebrates representation and inclusion in business with today’s leaders, and shines a light on the women who are making strides in their industries. Watch the full live segment here on Cheddar News.
Shannon shared with viewers the company's mission of growing ingredients, and crafting skincare and spa treatments that are two things: freshly harvested and deliciously served in Farm to Table style through thousands of spas, hotels and resorts around the world - from Dallas to Dubai.
The company picks its heirloom cucumbers, and within hours they create extracts for their products, with the pulpy leftover cucumber rinds being fed back to the chickens the same day. It’s a "Zero-Waste" process that FarmHouse Fresh is very proud of, and one of the reasons the company has been voted the Spa Industry's Favorite Bodycare Line for many years through the American Spa Magazine Professionals Choice Awards.
"WE ENSURE HIGH NUTRITION SKINCARE, AND WE DO THIS BY GROWING SUSTAINBLY THROUGH HYDROPONICS, AQUAPONICS AND TRADITIONAL ORGANIC FARMING."

What It Means To Be Green
Shannon explained that FarmHouse Fresh believes being "green' goes beyond preserving the environment and includes ensuring the wellbeing of the animals that inhabit it. Their ranch headquarters is also a farm animal sanctuary. Profits from product purchases are used to fund, rescue, and rehabilitate abused animals that she and other employees help care for at their sanctuary.
FarmHouse Fresh sees an uptick in vegan products and cruelty free products. The company offers both of these, but they go farther, actively participating in Cruelty Saves.
The company makes animal healing and rehabilitation part of their wellness experience and customers get to follow the rescued animals’ journeys – that they helped save - in a printed seasonal publication called the FarmHouse Fresh Farmanac.
At FarmHouse Fresh, the purchase of a single hand cream can directly pull a family of starving donkeys off a slaughter truck. So if you're looking to make a difference, use your consumer dollars and vote with your purchases. Companies like FarmHouse Fresh who make giving back part of their everyday culture, will absolutely make sure your dollars stretch farther than the products you buy and enjoy personally.
