April is waning and summer is on it's way!

Today as I walked to my barn to feed the goats I took a moment to enjoy the signs of spring around the property. Daffodils are waving their yellow heads in delight of the spring rain that is lightly falling on them. The air has the sweet spring rain smell that only April seems to have. Green is pushing out through the ground and out of the wild honeysuckle that abounds around the property. I see a few dandelions starting to push out some blossoms which is something I can't wait for. Yes folks...

Summer is fading fast!

In our neck of the woods in Western Pennsylvania the residents seem to be pushing to squeeze in that last little bit of summer that is soon to be over. The goat and horse barn is full of hay and all of our little spring babies have grown up to be small adults. The leaves are slowly starting to show their golden and russet hues already reminding us that the season of apple pies, pumpkin patches and fall harvest festivals are fast approaching. We at Sara’s Sud...

How can you tell if the soap someone is selling is the real deal?

1. Feel it!

Handmade soap will feel silky, and hard, while melt and pour soap will feel soft, sticky, and may make your hands sore or itchy.

2. Ask about the ingredients!

If they can't tell you the ingredients or start reading off a long list, BEWARE!

Well, we are heading into the thick of craft show season; which means we will be busy, busy, busy! We have been making soap like crazy and selling like crazy! If you've been following our posts, you know how busy we've been making soap in the evenings, but we've been just as busy selling too. We had two day craft shows these past two weekends in a row and boy are we burned out. These were on top of online and phone orders. Luckily, we now have two weekends off to recoup until we start again. ...

As I've said, this week has been a very busy week of making goat's milk soap. Wednesday night, we made English Rose and *new* Rose Garden. Then, last night we made Lovely Lavender and Spearmint. It has been a productive week and we hope to keep up this pace!

This week will be a busy week of making soap as we have lots of craft shows coming up. Last night we made 2 batches of goat's milk soap. The first batch was made with olive oil infused with annatto seeds & calendula petals and scented with lemongrass & orange essential oils then topped with calendula petals. The second triple batch was scented with lemongrass essential oil and has lemon grass mixed in. It was a productive night and smells amazing in the house.

Another Baby!

Posted by saraschrader@live.com on April 7, 2016 at 10:30 PM Comments comments (0)

We had another baby goat born tonight! She was born to our misfit goat Blue (Boer, Nubian, Kiko mix) and a Boer buck. We are not sure what we plan to do with the pair, but for now we will just bask in her cuteness. Doesn't she just look like a little Bunny?
