DELUSIONMFG has continued to find ways to truly connect and support all our clients, our next step has been adding the Brand Spotlight to our repertoire.
By recognizing brands that we have worked with, we are able to not only assist in bringing more traffic to their business but also give companies a platform to speak about their brand and experience with us.
This collaborative effort will also assist new or existing companies in receiving insight into the world of custom headwear and how it can positively influence and drive sales and traffic.
All companies were asked a series of questions to gain information about their brand, influences, style, experiences with adding custom headwear, and satisfaction with our company.
This week we are featuring a diversified family farm that is producing top quality organic food, produce and milk products.
The Grey Barn and Farm
Tell us a little about your brand (location, type of business, message, what makes you unique, etc.).
Our small, diversified New England family farm is a little like a piece of stinky cheese, surprisingly delicious. We have been farming on Martha’s Vineyard for close to ten years and we love it here. We are a certified organic farm with a focus on cheesemaking. Our grass fed, beautiful heard of forty heritage breed cows get milked twice a day, every day, creating lovely milk. It is from this milk that we produce our four award-winning farmstead cheeses: Prufrock, Eidolon, Bluebird and RipRap. We also raise seventy hogs a year, have three hundred laying hens, a flock of thirty sheep, a few ducks wandering around and we grow delicious vegetables in our farm gardens. All our products are for sale in our farm stand including our Delusion MFG wool caps and our cheeses are distributed nationally.
What are some of your influences when creating artwork and branding options? As well as how you create your artwork.
Working with Blue Rock Design Co. to update The Grey Barn’s branding, we felt that a Modern Dutch farming aesthetic with the solidness of Traditional American Farm advertising would create a new look to represent the farm moving forward. Researching old advertisements and early 20th century farm product packaging the team designed our latest branding and identity.
What are you most proud of regarding your brand or business, what makes you guys unique?
It is important to us that our land, our animals and our products give back to humanity, not take away, and being certified organic in an intensive rotational grazing system allows us to do just that. We know that this land will be here for future generations and those future generations will be able to reap the benefits of land that has been taken care of properly.
What was the main reason you decided to introduce fully custom headwear for your brand?
Working outside on a farm all day can be intense especially here on Martha’s Vineyard in the winter when the wind hurls itself across the pasture like a bull whip. A terrifically warm merino wool hat keeps everyone on the farm warm and visitors to our farm stand have enjoyed taking a bit of farm life back home with them to the city.
What is one of the main reasons that you enjoy working with DELUSION MFG?
Delusion MFG has been a breeze. From the moment we first contacted Delusion they were prompt and helpful. This was the first time for us to create headwear and we amazed at how streamlined and simple the process was for us. Thanks Delusion MFG!
