Barefoot's Brothers

"It is time we began to see the urgency and magnitude of what is required to restore and repopulate the forests." - Jacob Thompson

For Jacob and Lucas Thompson, Barefoot Design is a company that is dedicated to serve our local ecology, economy, and community in a way that has a positive local and global impact. They believe the best place to start is with oneself. For that reason they have spent many nights and weekends building home-based food systems, spending time with friends, and floating down the Little Miami River.


This brother team strongly believes in a better world. Their perspective leads to the potential of a landscape that continuously provides all the things nature requires and gives back food, beauty, habitat, and prosperity. Their philosophy works towards a sustainable culture, one that is regenerative, abundant and balanced.

“Sitting at our doorsteps, what we need to live a good life lies around us. Sun, wind, people, buildings, stones, water, birds and plants surround us. Cooperation with all these things brings harmony. Opposition to them brings disaster and chaos.” ― Bill Mollison, "Introduction to Permaculture"
