Our story began several years ago with a kid named Eileen. A baby goat, that is. But like potato chips, one goat is not enough and soon we had several. While they make great pets, we also knew they had more to offer. I researched the health benefits of goat milk and its use in soap. My niece Lea Ann studied the method and we made our first cold process batch in my kitchen. After much practice and help from soap makers in North Carolina, we honed the recipe and opened a business in 2003. My husband hand milked the goats for the first three years.
In 2006, Gail joined us and her husband took over the goat milking. We opened a store on Main Street in Stanford and expanded our line to include lotions, soft soaps, sugar and salt scrubs, as well as other fine Kentucky products. Jessica joined our team as chief soap maker. After three years in the business, Gail decided to stay home with her kids (human, not goat) and a year later, Carrie joined our team as store manager. We buy our milk from local producers these days, and even though I still have goats, they lounge around the farm enjoying retirement.
Giving back is an important part of what we do. Ten percent of our soap sales are donated to Samaritan’s Purse to purchase dairy goats for poor families around the world. We also teach friends in
developing countries how to make soap for microfinance opportunities.
We hope you enjoy our products.
