Thistle Farms is a social enterprise for women who have survived lives of violence, prostitution and addiction. By hand, the women create natural body care products that are as good for the earth as they are for the body. Purchases of Thistle Farms products directly benefit the women who made them, and all proceeds go back into the program. Thistle Farms employs 32 residents or graduates of Magdalene, the two-year residential program. While working at Thistle Farms, women learn skills in manufacturing, packaging, marketing and sales and administration. Through Thistle Farms, the women of Magdalene gain much needed job skills, and learn responsibility and cooperation. We believe that in the end, love is more powerful than all the forces that drive women to the streets. Products are available at 120 stores across the country, online and at the 5122 Charlotte Ave location. Visitors are welcome at Thistle Farms, Monday, Wednesday and Friday, from 9:00am - 2:00pm.
