Craft Show Season

Posted by saraschrader@live.com on April 19, 2016 at 9:15 PM Comments comments (0)

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. ...

Making More Soap

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!



Making Soap

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!

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?

April Morning

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; ...

Not only is today Palm Sunday and the First Day of Spring, we had more goat babies born today! We had another set of twins born to our doe Baby and buck Elvis. The cou blanc boy (Blaise) was first, followed by a sundgau girl (Echo) who was backwards. They are both doing well. Enjoy the pictures!
