Farm Fresh is committed to sustainability, quality, and community. Our garments are made with 100% organic cotton, made in the USA in a safe, compliant facility by workers paid a living wage. We print & dye with the least toxic ingredients available and dispose of all of our used printing materials in the most environmentally safe way possible.
Our print and embroidery shop in Sebastopol is family owned and female
run and we are proud to be a part of this vibrant community. We donate our time and materials whenever possible and however helpful, to fire victims, homeless shelters, and the CDC foundation. 82% of our business
is repeat customers, indicating the fierce loyalty of our customer base and the unique nature of our products and services.
Our vertically integrated model of printing on organic cotton t-shirts made in the USA sets us apart and enables us to control every step of the process towards creating merch that our customers truly love. Please contact us, we're always available and will respond promptly with any information you need to bring your project to life.
Farm Fresh primarily prints on our shirts and totes with water based inks and we are the first shop on the west coast to use a new printing ink that is completely non-toxic, deriving it's black color from Spirulina algae. Water based ink is more difficult and less predictable than traditional oil based plastisol ink that is the standard for most shops, but the inks are the least toxic available for multi-color printing and leave a
smooth "hand" on the garment so there is no ink presence once it's been washed.
When we print with water based inks, they "discharge" into the garment, adding to the variables and making it more difficult to match exact pantones and potentially leading to slight inconsistencies between prints. We feel this is a tradeoff that is worthwhile, and our commitment to printing this way sets us apart from most other screen printers. When appropriate, we do print with plastisol inks to accommodate polyblend garments or match an exact pantone.
Our shirts cost more because they are made in the USA
out of organic cotton. We are committed to this model because organic cotton is grown largely relying on rain, using far less water than irrigation. Organic cotton is farmed without harmful chemicals or
pesticides, and produces 46% less CO2e compared to conventional cotton.
Water based inks have a reduced environmental impact and we're the first shop on the west coast to use algae based ink for the first totally non-toxic print. We take great pride in our work and encourage our printers to take their time and get things right that meet our standards. Ultimately, we love what we do and our high rate of return business is proof that our customers do too!
