Our introduction to goats started with “Cindy” a British Alpine doe, who arrived with her doe kid “Carly” as ‘weedeaters’ and companions to our horses. It wasn’t long until we were enlightened to be many benefits of keeping goats. As time went by out little herd grew with the addition of a couple of Boer X does. The richness of the Boer milk encouraged us to add a few more girls. It wasn’t long before we just had to have a Boer buck.
We now find ourselves in the position of being able to sell some of our young goats. All our kids are doe raised but everyone is still handled daily. We have found this produces confident youngsters that are good to handle but still retain the lessons learned from being part of a herd. We have also been lucky enough to have a couple of ‘poll’ does in our breeding heard who routinely give us a couple of ‘poll’ kids and find a high demand for these naturally hornless youngsters who are ideally suited to the smaller hobby farm.
Now having more milk than we could ever hope to consume saw us start turning some of that milk into soap. Having sensitive shin myself led me to develop recipes with lots of rich creamy Boer milk and without adding any colours or fragrances that cause reactions in me. Once friends and family tried my soaps I was kept busy keeping up with demand.
We now sell our soaps at local markets and online and are continuing to develop recipes that are Goatsmilk and Pure Oil based and are now introducing some simple botanicals always with the aim of producing a quality luxurious bar that has the minimal chance of causing reactions with sensitive skin.
We hope you enjoy using our products as much as we enjoy making them.
