A couple of years ago, my older sister, Danielle, made it her goal to become the owner and operator of her own small business. Danielle has always been intrigued by the idea of being her own boss, which is likely why she decided to compose a business she could call her own.
With all of the land we have on the home farm, combined with her passion for agriculture, Danielle decided she wanted to develop a small business in which she would sell chemical-free, homegrown produce. Her first year was slow, but she is entering her third season with the business, and both her clientele and her range of available products has grown in addition to her passion for her business.
Danielle’s business is called Earthly delights, and you can check out her Facebook page for her business here: https://www.facebook.com/daniellesvegetables/?fref=ts.
Not only does Danielle plant, grow, and harvest all of her vegetables, but she furthermore sells herbs, flowers, self-made jams, baked goods, as well as handmade cutting boards/serving platters. She is the ultimate entrepreneur, and it has been my privilege to see her dedication and commitment in regards to her business heighten. She is fully dedicated to her business, and it is evident in her work. Her actual stand for Earthly Delights is decorated with her own personal touches, and the time she puts into her business is hard to overlook.
This year, Danielle plans to grow and harvest a lot of the produce she yielded last year, with such produce including sweet corn, tomatoes, green, red, yellow and orange peppers, hot banana peppers, zucchini, cucumbers, spinach, romaine lettuce, onions, pumpkins, squash, several different flowers, and popular herbs like basil and parsley. As of this year, her newest product to offer to her customers has a fresh and alternative approach to homegrown, chemical-free goods – she is now selling her own handmade bath bombs, bath salts and body scrubs using ingredients from her own garden. How cool is that?
If you’re ever in the area (Mt. Pleasant), please stop by and check out Earthly Delights. I promise you will not be disappointed, and chances are that Danielle herself will be down in the stand when you visit.
