Here We Go! A Yard Family Grows From A Love For Family and The Outdoors
How Yard Family Came To Be
The hardest part about starting a business is - starting! A thousand questions, such as, Is it the right time?, Am I smart enough?, What if it doesn't work?, What if people don't like what we're selling?, What if we fail? pestered us like mosquitoes on a sultry summer evening.
But to quote Chinese philosopher Lao-Tzu,
"The journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step".
And so step we did!
For Family and The Outdoors
We (sisters Emily and Alice) each had dreams of opening a business of our own since childhood. Finally in 2015, after many years of traveling and living in different parts of the world, we found ourselves settled with our families within a short drive of each other on the Gold Coast, Australia.
With Emily's talents lying more toward the business and technical end of the spectrum, and Alice having a natural flair for design and creativity, it seemed that a sisterly collaboration was the obvious thing to do.
And so, Yard Family was born!
It's What We Stand For
Yard Family has been styled as an extension of the lifestyle and pastimes that our young families already enjoy; quality time spent together, a love and passion for all things outdoors, and making the most of all the beauty that this world has to offer.
Welcome to our Family!
