Flying Cow was founded in 2017 by Britney Arceneaux. After having 4 babies, her cystic acne was painful and frustrating. As a last resort, she tried tallow. After using it for a while, she had less acne and her skin felt so good! She realized she found her answer! To save money, she began creating her own recipe and ended up crafting the perfect whipped tallow right in her kitchen. It even kept her skin clear during and after pregnancies with babies 5 and 6!
When she had extra tallow, she would share it with friends who soon encouraged her to start selling it. She went for it. She took $50 for supplies and opened a little Etsy business. Flying Cow quickly started to blossom by word of mouth and her husband Joshua joined in to help facilitate the overwhelming growth.
After selling at the local farmer’s market and doing local pickups on their front porch for a couple years, Britney and Joshua began the process of building their first store in Midland, TX which opened in 2019.
Customers kept spreading the word and telling their friends the wonders of their tallow balm and in 2020, they added their second location in Fredericksburg, TX. Growth continued in 2021 with another store location in Lubbock, TX around the company’s 4th anniversary of starting.
What started as an act of desperation has quickly blossomed into something much more… a new dream of helping others struggling with minor to severe skin issues with handcrafted fresh products.
At Flying Cow, we work with our family and friends to handcraft fresh skincare products and focus on quality ingredients from small organic farms. We are proud to be a family owned and operated small business. We are so honored and excited to serve our amazing customers, and can’t wait to see where this chapter leads. Our story is just beginning.
