You know where your farm-raised, fair-trade, free-range, organic, local, farm-to-table dinner is coming from. Your beer is local. Maybe your skis are even hand-made in the U.S. What’s next? Free-range, local, organic socks? Well, now that you mention it…

Ok, so maybe that’s a bit of a stretch, but you get the gist. The idea behind the local food movement is based on two main pillars—support of local economies and impact on global environment. Food that is grown locally has a smaller eco-footprint since it’s not being shipped across the ocean and then being trucked to your local grocer. And supporting local farmers—well that just feels like the right thing to do.

Farm To Feet takes the same principles and applies them to—yup, you guessed it—socks. The 100-percent American-made brand is comprised exclusively of materials sourced from a U.S.-based supply chain. The socks are then made in the brand’s Mt. Airy, North Carolina facility. Even the font on the packaging was designed by an American designer. And the soy-based ink? Also American made. But it doesn’t stop there.

The folks who play key roles in the manufacturing of these socks are part of the brand’s story. Pick up a pair of socks currently available (the brand has 90 models including four ski socks), and you’ll find yourself face to face with a rancher, sock folder, PR rep, or ambassador involved with the brand. It drives the concept home, making an even deeper, more personal connection with the American-made brand. Its message: buying this pair of socks supports your fellow American.

You may never again feel this good about buying socks.
