Alchemist Farm are firm believers in community support, shipping hatching eggs all over the United States for classroom hatching projects and one non-profit each year to donate a portion of their proceeds to.

In 2019 Alchemist Farm supported End48Hours of Hunger. In 2020 they will be supporting the Children’s Eternal Rainforest.

Alchemist Farm runs on 100% clean renewable energy. They are a 100% plastic-free business and as of November 1, 2019, are also zero waste which means they do not create any garbage that goes to the landfill.
