Iggy Natoli, president of Buncha Farmers, likes the rural life, small towns, small farms, country stores, natural products. Ten years ago, he was semi-retired, volunteering at a local farmer’s market in Ontario. He created a co-op of vendors at a country store. The founders did the marketing and packaging to get the word out and kept improving the products. Manufacturing is done at home by contract workers.
Then he and his partner Cory Besser, VP and Sales Director, saw their lives change when their core product, the All Natural Stain Remover, started to take off. Contracts with wholesalers followed, and they shut down the retail operation to focus on distributing products across Canada and the U.S. Today the natural products are available at chains such as Wal-Mart and Home Hardware.
Buncha Farmers has been named one of the Top 10 Green Household Items by Canadian Living Magazine for the All Natural Stain Remover and one of the Top 200 Ethical Companies by Ethical Ocean.Com.
“Our philosophy is to make great products that do what they are supposed to do, using only the finest of materials at an affordable price,” says Natoli. “We want to get rid of toxins in our everyday life, as down the road they could cause health issues. People learn about us at health food stores and online. They trust us because our products work.”
Buncha Farmers stain stick removes stains from tough sources like grass, salt, grease, red wine, ketchup, and ink from clothing, lace tablecloths, a child’s car seat, even your walls and carpets. The All-Natural Laundry Detergent is made of only five pure natural ingredients.
“We get ideas from our customers,” says Natoli. “We take scraps of the stain remover, put them in a jar and make them into a laundry booster,” which we later turned into our laundry detergent.
The number two product is Manuka Honey Soap, which has only six ingredients. There’s also Manuka Healing Skin Creams and Honey Lips lip balm. The skin creams are designed to keep skin healthy, cleansed and moisturized. The new facial cream with bee venom will help take out lines and give the user the healthy glow they desire.
