5. Farm to Feet

Every adventure should begin with clean socks! Whether you are taking a hike in the mountains, or walking the dog, all good adventure outfits begin with good socks.  Farm to Feet ensures the highest quality materials and end products because everything is grown, sourced and manufactured right here in the good ol’ US of A. American sourced merino wool is grown by American Sheep Industry ranchers. After shearing, it is processed by Chargeurs wool in Jamestown, and then it travels to Kent Wool in Pickens, S.C., and National Spinning in Burlington, NC to be spun into yarn. It is then sent to a sustainability-focused manufacturing facility in Mt. Airy, NC to be transformed into award winning socks. Sunderland socks feature man’s best friend and their “happy little tails.” ⇒ $20 / farmtofeet.com
