We are the McCormack Family, and we are passionate about what you eat and what you eat on. We like to say we are in the business of closing the gap between where your food comes from and what you are eating it on. There are 8 of us and we have fallen in love with working the land for vegetables and running livestock for meat, with practices that heal the land. It is our joy to steward the land we are on and the items we produce. We love getting our hands in the mud! Flipping over dark, rich soil for a new bed in the Spring, digging up clay from our backyard for a new project, or using the mud turned clay for the pottery we sell…we enjoy the mess, joy and life that working with our hands brings.

There are few things that build the work ethic like early morning feed chores, the tender heart over the loss of an animal, the gratefulness over food you have cared for and processed to eat, and the laughter over stories from the day shared around the dinner table with food from your yard and plates made from your hands.

Thanks for being here!

MEGAN MCCORMACK - CEO/OWNER

John found his appreciation for pottery late into college. After graduating from Christopher Newport University he worked an apprenticeship with a potter in North Carolina. A few years later Acorn Pottery was born. Much of what John enjoys is the process and the relationships. The process of mud to clay, of clay to formation, and formation to final product. Relationally, we love connecting with our pottery customers. People love to have a favorite mug, bowl, dish, and we love to make it for them! It makes sharing those special drinks, and meals with loved ones a little more rich. Being a small business ourselves, we love to help other businesses brand themselves in a way that shows their care for their customer and the community by sourcing high quality, local, products, and that is exactly what our logo hand thrown mugs do.
