There’s a place where lions roam freely. Birds sing beautifully in the canopy of trees where giraffes graze. And butterflies always seem to land gently on your fingertip. That place is your child’s imagination and its where we find the inspiration for Milkbarn kids.
Because we believe children’s products should be as fresh and imaginative as the world they live in. Well- designed and well-made, not manufactured and mass marketed.
Care. Curiosity. Creativity. And love.
All the things we want to pass on to our children. That’s what we bring to each and every Milkbarn treasure.
Milkbarn is a one-word poem that evokes the essence of who we are. Our roots are in dairy country, the rolling hills north of San Francisco. We’re nostalgic, yet modern, country, yet urban, rustic and yet clean, cool and timeless. We love seeing the world through a child’s eyes. We love their imaginations, their senses and their wonder – running, romping, daydreaming, gazing at the clouds. That’s what Milkbarn is all about.
We look forward to many years ahead working with you, our customers, without whom we wouldn’t be here.
Stacy Phillips, Founder
Stacy founded Milkbarn in 2006 when she began sewing bibs for her seven month old son. What started as Stacy working at her kitchen table has evolved into a business that distributes products to thousands of retailers. Stacy lives in Franklin, Tennessee with her husband and three children. She loves reading, traveling, long walks, meaningful conversation, exploring backroads and a good cup of tea.
Haley is Stacy’s nineteen year old daughter and is an amazing artist. There is magic in a mother-daughter collaboration. Together they work to incorporate Haley’s drawings into Milkbarn’s textile designs. Haley is studying aerospace and mechanical engineering at UC Davis with the hope of one day contributing to the exploration of our galaxy.
