Recent Changes

We’ve been so busy lately that I haven’t had time to post an update! We’ve released two new soaps, one of which is a limited edition scent for summer. We plan to make several different seasonal varieties each year, which will be available online, at craft fairs and events, and in select stores.
On a sad note, we made the decision to sell our cows, in order to focus on our growing landscaping and soap businesses. However, our Hereford cow and calf have only moved a few miles away, and are settling in well to their new home. Their new owners have named the little bull Isaac, which we think suits him.
You may be seeing us at some larger craft shows in the near future! We are planning to travel to events in Albany and Vermont. We are also looking to expand into some more shops across the North Country. (If there are any stores that you’d like to see our soap in, let us know!)

A Bull is Born

On Friday morning we welcomed Nova’s first calf to our herd. He is a robust young bull, whose name has yet to be determined. Nova delivered him overnight without complication, and has seamlessly transitioned into her new role as a mother. The calf will be available for purchase when he is weaned in the fall.

Where Our Soap Has Traveled

We thought it would be neat to make a map of all of the states we’ve shipped our soaps to thus far. Our goal is to reach all 50 someday, so if you know anyone who lives in Alaska, be sure to tell them about us!

Our First Kids

Yesterday afternoon we welcomed two new additions to our farm! Both healthy little does, one solid black, and one black and tan (chamoisee) like their father. Their birth was quick and uneventful. Ginger was exhibiting signs of early labor when we checked on her around 1:00 PM, and by the time we went out to feed at 5:00, the kids were already up on their feet. Both are vigorous nursers, and their mother, Ginger, has been taking excellent care of them. Their birth marks a milestone for us, as these are the first of many babies to be born on our farm!
