I have been encouraged to start a blog for the company. With that being said I thought it would be fitting to introduce myself and give a little backstory on what makes me me.
My name is Liz Wells and I am the owner and creator of Wells Hobby Farm Inc. I am happily married for 20 years this summer to my husband who I met in high school. We have 2 kids a 14 year old son and a 7 year old daughter. We love on approximately 6 acres in jersey county il surrounded by family and friends.
Along with owning my own business I also work part time at a major shipping and transportation company as a manager. I have worked there since I was 18 years old and it’s my second home 😊
I started this company 8 years ago in 2013. As long as I can remember I have always loved to create things, from mud pies to magical potions made from weeds in my backyard. I began baking at a young age also with my grandma and cooking has always come natural to me. My husband and I always joke there is no reason to go out to dinner when we can cook it better lol.
Gardening has also always been a hobby of mine. I can remember asking my mom when I was younger to plant a garden or to get more flowers for the planter around the light post. Nature has always just spoke to me in an almost therapeutic way. I can sit for hours and watch a sunset or clouds on the horizon and just be still. To be honest it’s one of my favorite things to do.
That leads us to this business adventure. When I found I could take my joy of cooking and mix it with herbal elements from the earth to make natural yet beautiful products I was hooked. The more research I did into commercial products, the more discouraged I was with what was offered in the stores and the more motivated I was to make something better for my family and myself. From that motivation Wells Hobby Farm was born.
