Jenny Brown (pictured 4th from left) started EveryBody by Dutton Farm with the goal of creating employment opportunities, financial freedom, and independence for individuals with developmental disabilities, while also bringing them equality and respect. The core message of the company is, "Beauty in Diversity, Strength in Inclusion."
EveryBody by Dutton Farm creates natural soy candles, body washes, hand soaps, bar soaps, body butters, body scrubs, body oils, bath bombs, and lip balms. The product has a mission for each unit sold. For every $20 spent, 1 hour of work is created for someone who faces chronic unemployment and isolation in the community.
