Villagers is not just a place that sells great products. The real story is the people behind the products and what magic the combinations of products and community participation can enable in the lives of our customers. Villagers is a place that supports a lifestyle. Villagers supports a meaningful, authentic, grounded life.
The shop is local artisan goods, apothecary and urban homestead supply store located in Burnsville, North Carolina. We are a small, brick and mortar store offering quality tools, supplies + classes to support healthy lifestyle activities including organic gardening, food preservation, home cooking, medicinal herbalism, earth skills and more. Books and educational workshops that complement the store’s ethos are also offered. Our products and services also help support self-discovery, intuition, healing, transition, and purpose-driven living. We want all of you to live the best life possible and we are here to help.
Villagers' work is dedicated to inspiring and enabling healthy change of our built environment and personal lives, toward a more harmonious, more resilient way of modern living. My focus is on incremental, small-scale projects in the realms of community resilience through participation and food sovereignty. Practical participation is at the heart of building a regenerative society.
Villagers is in the process of becoming a community focused cooperative, looking to establish and grow in Southern Appalachia.
The online store is a limited representation of the products available in our physical store, featuring thoughtfully curated collections of our products that are easy to ship. We will be adding items on a regular basis. Through shopping here you are supporting a small business that is highly invested in its local community, ecology and economy.
