After studying graphic design and working in large metropoles like New York and Nashville, Anna Brakefield eventually found her way back to the family farm that her father, Mark Yeager, has owned since the early 1980s. He had pitched the idea of partnering to form a direct-to-consumer business utilizing their harvested cotton to make bed sheets, quilts, towels, and even knitwear. The focus on heritage feeling, as well as the ability to trace the product back all the way to seed in the ground, is part of what makes this enterprise special.

“Every single piece that we’re putting out there has a ton of love from this whole family. It’s been worried over and prayed over from the time that it’s put in the ground.” —Anna Brakefield
