In January buy 4 soaps and get the 5th one free!
We raise show quality Saanen goats. Our girls win in the show ring, are super sweet and fill the bucket with milk. They are all registered with ADGA and we do LA every year and show as often as possible. We sell most of the babies every spring.
I decided to start making soaps because of the amount of extra milk. After making the first few batches I was hooked and have been creating them for that past 4 years.
Besides raising goats and making soap we also teach people about homesteading and offer classes and tours on a regular basis. Check our other pages for more info on that!
My friend told me that most people like to get to know the person behind the products so I'm going to tell you my story behind becoming a goat milk soap maker, dairywoman. I was born daughter of Missionaries in Brazil and lived there for most of my life. I always dreamed of being a farmer and raising lots of animals, mostly horses. I never could have goats there because of the high humidity and it was too hard to keep them alive. I bought my first horse when I was 14 with money that I had earned and saved and never looked back. Horses have always been a major part of my life. I went to college to study horses, rode them avidly, dreamed of the olympics, drooled over pictures of my dream horse, the Andalusian. Fast forward life and I ended up in Texas with several certifications in Therapeutic Horseback Riding. I started teaching kiddos with special needs, as well as anyone who wanted to learn about horses and that was my career. Goats came along in my life when we purchased some acreage and needed something to qualify for ag exemption. I started out with dwarf goats but quickly discovered their great talent for escaping so I got my first Nubian doe. She was great and soon more of them joined her. Our first show we went to was the State Fair of Texas with a young doe I had purchased from a reputable breeder. We took 5th place out of 13 in the class and I was hooked. After about a year I decided that then Nubian goats were too stubborn and loud and I got my first Saanen and it's been love ever since. I currently milk anywhere from 9 to 15 this coming spring. My son enjoys helping me with them and we go to shows together. We are trying to improve bloodlines and make our herd an even better on. On top of raising the goats, making the handmade soaps and lotions and running the farm, I also continue to teach riding lessons, both for able bodied people and special needs people. And along with a friend we started teaching farming/homesteading classes for anyone who wants to learn.
This American doe is a gorgeous girl with a beautiful udder , long body and lots of milk. We have kept several of her offspring and are very pleased with how they are producing.
Mila is one of our highest producing does with a beautiful, capacious udder and although she has not yet won her championship, she has done well in the shows she's gone to.
Exceptional is one of our purebred does, the foundation for that line. She has placed very well in her LA scores. She has a beautiful rear udder but lacks a little in foreudder. Her daughters have turned out with very lovely udders.
Easy, although not as long as some of our does is wider then all of them. She had mastitis in the past, ending her show career but has placed very well in her LA scores. She's another of our Purebred does.
Ariella is one of my personal favorites, as the niece of my very first Saanen. She has done well in show and LA. Looking forward to her next kidding.
Elegance is one of our homebred does. She has only had one kidding so far and her udder was small but very perfectly placed. I'm looking forward to seeing how this long, deep doe matures with more kiddings and how she does in the show ring.
I drove all the way to California to pick up this beautiful doe with her very immense will to milk. She's the kind of girl who puts everything she can into the milk bucket and never wants to stop! I'm looking forward to how she can stand up with milk test next year.
I also got this girl from California. (ask me someday about that crazy trip!) She is smaller in size with a smaller udder but almost as productive and I'll be taking her to the show ring next spring.
Snow is one of our Purebred does. She is a large doe with great depth in her chest and beautiful face. We are looking forward to seeing how she does on the purebred side of our herd.
Here I will share videos and tips about soapmaking!
