April Morning

Posted by saraschrader@live.com on April 4, 2016 at 11:45 AM Comments comments (0)

As I walked to my barn on this beautiful April morning, I could hear the birds singing and smell the crisp frostiness of the day which had only just begun. I started feeding the goats which supply the milk for our handmade soap and I began to wish that I could capture this wonderful aroma and duplicate that smell into a bar of rich, moisturizing goat’s milk soap. I want all of our customers to be able to close their eyes in the shower and smell exactly what I am enjoying...

We are having some crazy weather for the second day in April. Isn’t it supposed to be Spring? Why does it look like a blizzard outside and feel like Christmas? I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for Summer! I suppose I will just have to make do with some hot chocolate tonight. Stay warm everyone!

We've decided to keep one of this year's babies. Pippa will become a permanent member of our herd. We are so excited as she is stunning and oh so friendly, however it looks likes she will be a troublemaker. You can view the other babies for sale at

As someone who has struggled with acne most of my life, it is so strange to be complimented on my skin.


My skin care routine consists of using goat's milk soap and occasionally goat's milk and honey lotion; that's it! I even wear cheap makeup everyday, but as long as I wash it all off before bed; I don't get break outs from it.


I would really urge anyone with acne to try our products! Its not an overnight cure, but because the soap moisturizes your skin; ...

As the month of March arrived in Pennsylvania with a fierce wind, so has Sara’s Suds taken a breath of early spring air to start gearing up for babies on our Peaceful Valley Alpines goat farm. For those of you who don’t know, a goat needs to have a baby in order to produce milk. This milk then provides nourishment for the babies until they are old enough to wean off and eat grain. After weaning, we then use the milk to make our goat’s milk soap. As we anxiously await our ki...

Dry Winter Skin

Do you have itchy skin after you get out of the shower? Do you slather on lotion after a bath? Does your skin feel sore and chapped when you're in cold weather?


The reason for this is that the detergents in commercial soap destroy the oils on your skin. These oils are important in protecting your skin, keeping it hydrated, and maintaining the skin's elasticity.


However, an easy fix or rather prevention for these problems is goat's milk soap. The fat and ...
