History

We live on a small homestead in Pittsboro North Carolina. We met in 2015, fell in love, and started making a life together. We are both makers- Lauren has been making art for over 15 years, and Walt has been woodworking, inventing and gardening for most of his life as well. We both share a passion for art and making, and so we decided to start Proud Chicken Farm & Studio, the name inspired by the chickens on our homestead. Our mission is to bring our love of nature and homesteading to our customers through hilarious and beautiful art and eventually through our organic produce.
