Here is one of our very happy kittens. They are all finally getting used to everyone. They still won’t let us touch them, but maybe in time, maybe with a bit of goat milk to soothe the little savage beasts 🙂

Happy Sunny Honey Bear!

Good evening all! Well we had a most beautiful day here on the farm as you can see by the very happy goat in the picture. The day began very cold, 27 degrees to be exact, but warmed up to 57 and was very sunny so a very good day to get lots done. Of course the goats figured it was a beautiful day to lay in the sun and just soak up the rays. They were all very happy all day and played on the rocks and climbed trees until bed time.
The hens are really stepping up their game these days! We are getting 9 to 11 eggs daily which is really awesome! I am including goat milk in their diet to help them on their road to becoming the greatest egg layers ever…… they are so cute. We do have one egg eater in the hen house, not sure who it is, but I think it may be one of the Buffs. We shall keep an eye out for the notorious egg eating henny penny.
The boys made lovely BBQ ribs for dinner tonight, which they started early this morning. Talk about wonderful! Fall off the bone awesome. And to top it all off, Jake made a killer BBQ sauce to go with them. Delish! So, for a wonderful treat, I made chocolate pudding for dessert made with yummy goat milk which came out totally yummy!
As you can imagine, all the wonderful sunshine, BBQ, and pudding has me very tired and ready to sleep so g’night all….. sweet dreams ❤

Why do we make soaps and lotions?

Well, we had a very busy day bottling lotions and liquid soaps for two large orders. It is so wonderful that so many people are enjoying our soaps and lotions! I know I love them and use them every day so I can just imagine that many feel the same way. I like using clean soaps with no yucky stuff in it and lotions that have ingredients that are familiar and have nothing to do with brake fluid or anti freeze. My daughter told me years ago to watch out for any product that listed propylene glycol as one of the ingredients. It is a toxic chemical which is in many health and beauty products and food as well. It is also used in antifreeze and brake fluid. So, when I had trouble finding products without propylene glycol in them I decided that I would have to begin making my own. So, here I am just selling the goodies that I make for me and my family so that we don’t have to use toxic chemicals on our skin.
Well, that is just a bit of the history of our soapmaking adventure….. I hope you take a moment and check the ingredients on your beauty products and food items and make sure you can pronounce and identify the items in them. You will be glad you did. 🙂

New opportunities!

Wow! What a crazy couple of days we have had here! We got an order for a whole new line of Castile soaps using only essential oils as the scents so I started making it yesterday and just now finished bottling it up to be delivered tomorrow. The new Castiles are Cedar Wood, Fir Needle, Lemon Drop (Lemon and Lemon Grass essential oils), Meadow Woods (Cedar wood, Fir, Pine, and Peppermint essential oils), Peppermint, Pine, and Tea Tree. They all smell great and they came out so nice and clear! I love making Castile soap!
It was quite warm today so making the soaps was a bit taxing. The goats don’t really mind the heat too much now that they are up in the woods. It is so strange, once you start up the trail into the woods it seems like it is at least 10 degrees cooler. I love it and the girls do too! They have also discovered that they love the apple horse treats that we get at the farm store! Oh my gosh! They go totally crazy for them and chase me all over the property to get them from me. Bella almost plowed me over trying to get them out of my pocket! I was laughing so hard I could hardly stand up! Good times with our wonderful goaties 🙂
Well till next time, happy farming to you all 🙂

Busy Spring Days!

What a busy weekend! Wow! Cleaning goat houses can really be a tough job…. especially with all of our helpers. Starbright loves to inspect my work as I am going to make sure I don’t miss even one goat berry  She is a stickler for a clean house!
The babies are doing very well…. Emelia loves to hang her feet over Reggio while he walks around. She is such a nut. I will see if I can get a picture of it…. it is totally adorable! Honey and Daisy Mae are becoming very good friends now that they bunk together. They love to lay in the shade together and chew…… just too cute. Jim has a new place next to the girls yard now so he can be part of the herd but not in with the girls. He is very happy with his new digs! Soon, in a few weeks, Reggio will be joining him in the bachelor pad.
Starr is doing better every day on her boo boo leg. She walks on it all the time now and only limps if she has to run. I don’t think she trusts it to hold up to running. She is such a love! I love to sing the Starr goat song to her 🙂 
Sugar and Bella are doing awesome on the milk stand! Bella is such a giver…. she gives almost a half gallon of milk a day…. and I still leave some for the babies. Sugar gives about a quart, but she is a first freshner and I expected it to be low, but it is very creamy and sweet milk so she makes up for the low numbers with great quality milk.
We have been working in the garden for many days and have planted about 160 tomato plants, assorted green beans, lettuce, peppers, and herbs. Talk about sore muscles…..
Well, until next time….. take care and happy farming! 🙂
