About the Artist:
Inspired by her passion to support local farming, Natalie Washuta began making “I Love Local Farmer" t-shirts for friends, family and fellow CSA members in 2006. Figuring that farmers don’t have a lot of money to spend on advertising, so maybe we could do it for them. Natalie is a sweater designer and lives in Brooklyn, NY, though her heart is somewhere out in the wild.
