Meet the Founder

Hello and thanks for stopping by! My name is Nicole and I’m the Founder of Hudson Herbivore, LLC.

A little about me... I grew up in Westchester County, New York and am still a proud resident. I have a love for experiencing new cultures and environments, so travel is one of my favorite hobbies. I also enjoy reading, live music, cooking and spending time with my family. Staying active is critical, and admittedly I'm a bit of a gym-rat, but also enjoy the outdoors and walks along the Hudson Valley river towns. Above all, I am strongly rooted in my faith. 

"With God, all things are possible"
Matthew 19:26

After adopting a vegan lifestyle in September 2017, I quickly realized there were no local retail boutiques that carried vegan friendly items. In an effort to change that, Hudson Herbivore was born. We are not only dedicated to supplying our customers with eco-friendly, sustainable and cruelty free goods, but we also showcase handmade items from local Hudson Valley, NY artists. A few items are even made by yours truly.

When you purchase one of our handcrafted candles, macramés, earrings, or any one of our other unique items, you’re not only supporting local craftsman but also our environment. All items are curated specifically to be environmentally friendly, gentle on our bodies and reduce waste.  

Hudson Herbivore’s slogan Love is Plant Shaped comes from my passion to live green and my new admiration for indoor plants.

Right now, you can shop with us online and at local farmers markets, fleas, and pop up shops. Check out the events section for more info! 

Thanks again for visiting my website! I look forward to connecting with you on Instagram, Facebook or meeting you in-person at our next event!
