Countryside Farms caters to consumers and small business entrepreneurs. You won't find our products selling at the mass merchandiser or big box discount store. Countryside works with independent floral designers, artists, crafters and upscale boutique owners that require a customized luxury home fragrance experience. Our company offers the very best quality offered for less.
Countryside was founded in 1965 to promote home fragrance, organic foods and farming. Today the company is a specialty distributor of fragrant potpourri, herbs and spices provided by growers and agricultural cooperatives.
Countryside Farms markets handicrafts and scented merchandise as a social enterprise corporation organized to donate all net profits from product sales, after taxes, for charitable and educational purposes. Social enterprises are not charities, but are businesses promoting primarily social objectives. Economic surpluses are reinvested into the business and the community rather than being driven by the need to maximize profit for owners and shareholders. Social enterprise is best understood as blending commercial and economic endeavors with social value creation.
Countryside Farms is a Pennsylvania Economic Development project supporting community not-for-profit organizations. Our focus is about quality products matched with social enterprise, community development, and employee pride about our jobs and potential for business opportunities.
We look forward to serving you.
NANCY J. THOMPSON, President and Chief Executive Officer
