A group of farmers and local artisans in the Greater Toronto Region, Durham Region and Region of York in Central Ontario, started the BunchaFarmers company in the summer of 2006. Their first store was opened on one of the members Farms in Stouffville. There were some disagreement on in which direction the company should go and some of the members dropped out, the remaining few shareholders opened a new location in Queensville on another farm that had a country store. They began developing organic and natural products for Wholesale and distribution. This crew of farmers also operates three Farmers' Markets.
Buncha Farmers Stain Stick ($4.42/bar) is all natural, made with all-natural, biodegradeable ingredients and enhanced with borax to soften the water and aid in the cleaning process. This stain stick does not contain any artificial dyes or perfumes, it does have natural scents from eucalyptus and deodorizing power of litsea. This stain stick works great on grass, red wine, ketchup, blood, grease, underarm stains, stains and dinginess in cloth diapers, etc. It can even be used on walls!
You can scrape off a little bit of the bar and throw it right in with your regular was. I made a 'concoction' of Soap Nuts and Buncha Farmers with a recipe I found on Buncha Farmers Inc. Facebook Group! You can rub directly on the stain with a little water and lather it on or you can melt some n hot water and spray or rub it onto carpet surfaces, car seats, etc.
I use the Soap Nut and Buncha Farmers concoction as our laundry detergent and cloth diaper detergent. Our boys have sensitive skin and this works great on their diapers and after a week of using this on our diapers we have yet to have a rash!! Usually if either of the boys is going to have a reaction to a detergent used on their diapers it presents it self, often in full force, with in just a few hours. The diapers smell nice and clean with out the heavy scent of other detergents.
I have so many things I want to try BunchaFarmers Stain Remover on, just have to find the time and I will definitely share the magic with all of you! I am looking forward to removing stains on my couch, Cade's car seat is pretty gross and even has a little bit of mold growing on the underside of his car seat cover. I am also going to give the stain stick remover a shot on the drawings Cade thought were necessary to do on the walls! I've tried a few other things to get the random crayon, marker, pen, etc off of the walls and dressers with little to no success and a ton of effort.
Manuka Soap ($3.99/bar) is made with healing honey/Genuine Manuka Honey from New Zealand. The Manuka Soap is available in three different scents, Lavender, Lemongrass and Oatmeal, all of them are natural soaps that are perfect for those with sensitive skin or even if you just feel your need more moisturizing body and/or hand wash. The different scents of the Manuka Soap have their own benefits, such as the Honey & Lavender being a calming and soothing soap, Honey and Lemongrass helps to deodorize and refresh and the Honey and Oatmeal is non scented with the benefits of oatmeal and honey to help soothe sensitive skin as well as eczema. I love using oatmeal and honey on both of the boys' as they both have sensitive skin and eczema. All of the Manuka Soaps from BunchaFarmers are handmade in Ontario, Canada, using only the finest of ingredients. You can view the ingredients here.
