February is Black History Month, dedicated to honoring generations of African Americans. Some of the ways we choose to celebrate include reading children’s books by Black authors and supporting Black-owned brands and businesses.
Introducing O'Farm Favorites, our new series where we spotlight brands we know and love as parents, including everything from snacks and meal starters to toys, games, and beyond. In honor of Black History Month, we’ve rounded up nine Black-owned brands we’re loving right now, many of which are perfect for your little ones, and others that are perfect for you. Dive in below to start shopping and show your support this month and always!
