Hatch Lab is a lifestyle brand for hatchers

Hatchers are reusers, reducers, and reimaginers. They’re reviving the lost arts of homesteading, cooking, healing, and creating, while adding modern twists. When not making the things they use, hatchers prefer small companies owned by artisans, farmers, and herbalists who prioritize quality and the health of humans and the planet. Want to be a hatcher? Join us! We’ll guide you!
