About me...

Hi, I'm Kristi, owner and artist at BBRH&H.  I'm a pastors wife, mom of two incredible young boys and two rambunctious  Schnauzers.  I started this business in our basement at the beginning of the Covid 19 pandemic.  As a one-woman show, I pour my heart and soul into every piece I make at Blackberry Ridge Hearth & Home. I learned to use a jig saw and skill saw and have been creating beautiful pieces ever since. I started by selling my wares locally, refining my designs and techniques as word of mouth began to spread. Today, I offer a range of charming  home decor products, apparel and more, ranging from door hangers signs to Christmas ornaments. My goal is  quality craftsmanship and attention to detail, ensuring that every piece is both beautiful and long-lasting.

About Us...

Blackberry Ridge Heart and Home is part of our larger family business venture, Blackberry Ridge Farm.

Located in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina, we're a family of four (six if you count Gus and Käthe, our four-legged "kids".)  This venture has allowed us to spend our days together as a family, homeschooling and providing needed therapies for our son, Sawyer and Cooper, who both have special needs.  (Ask us about Autism and Down Syndrome, if you have any questions, or have a shared experience--we love to share our blessings and our challenges and hear about others and their families.)

Alongside BBRH&H, my husband Steve and I also operate Specialty Tropicals, a nursery business dedicated to bringing rare and unique plants to collectors around the world and after a brief hiatus, our bakery business will soon rejoin the mix, and my husband is lead pastor at Blue Ridge Church.

Yeah...we stay busy!

We're a family of faith, as well, seeking to glorify God in our business as well as our daily lives.  We are tremendously blessed, and we want to be a blessing to you, too!
