We are just a little sheep farmin’, beekeepin’, hootin and hollerin!, homesteadin’ permaculturing family nestled in the Ozark hills of Witter Arkansas.
We are passionate about raising kids with lots of love, food, travel, the ocean, fine crafts, swimming and floating the rivers, herbalism and natural health, and so many more. We hail from Nebraska, and Mississippi but really Arkansas now for majority of the time.
We want to make a positive impact on the world and its morality. We want to be resilient and honest. We want to lead our kids by example and help stabilize the world. We also want more equality so we can all just hang out and have a good time already!

We want to empower those working with animals by having exceptionally sharp equipment. We believe that having good quality clippers and blades for the job minimizes the noise, pulls less hairs and all around lessens stress to each animal and human alike thus creating much better chances for an enriching, efficient experience. Same goes for shears.
We also aspire for genuine relationships with our clients trying to help any way we can, be it adjusting the tension just right or setting a new blade, talking through product choices or even repairing / servicing the tools your self.
We want you to excel at what you do and have a great time. As we see it, this is our service that we offer – support.
Hailing from Nebraska, I, Brett M. Scott, grew up in central Arkansas. My grandpa was a farmer and man of many hats; my father is an electrical engineer by trade. I have always been an avid learner and went to university pursuing a bachelor’s in philosophy with an anthropology minor. Ambitiously I traded it all in for a small apprenticeship in jewelry and lapidary arts in Mount Ida, Arkansas in the heart of the Ouchita National Forest.
In the Ouchitas and in the years after, I found a deep appreciation for natural arts and skills. After an artistic stretch of learning and exploring, and a couple rounds of parenthood, I found myself with a desire to know more about building and get a taste for every trade involved. Slowly, I’ve become a multi disciplinary craftsman, repair man and, ultimately, a finish carpenter. This wide range of work has taught me the incredible and unique value of a sharp blade. Its opened up an enduring fascination in swordsmanship, its symbolic meanings, and the art of sharpening.
Fast forward a few years of practice and learning, children growing like weeds, and a small sheep farm, here comes a family friend, Larry Stanley, trying to retire. As of April, 2021, Brett purchased the business from Larry after starting Complete Clipper Service in 1999. Luckily for all of us, Larry is still around after training and passing the torch. Hopefully he is fishing right now!. Today, Morgan, (my die hard teammate and beautiful mother of my children), our little farmstead and I live up in the Ozarks of Arkansas. Who knows what the future will bring, but the CCS family is excited. We definitely hope to have more bees and sheep.
