2015

What a crazy year! It was a rough go.  My Dad was very sick this year and we lost my wonderful Grandfather. Things have not slowed down one bit though! We have been making soap and keeping up with the new farm.

We planted lots and lots of trees this year and two huge gardens. My Mom was able to get some chicks to hatch we have Swedish Flower Hens, Isbar, and Giant Bielefelder chickens. Our Kune Kune pig Luna had a beautiful batch of piglets, we just love them.  It is almost time for us to get ready for our goats to start kidding after the new year.

Just in time for Thanksgiving we were able to remodel the kitchen so we could fit the whole family and make enough dinner for everyone, it was so wonderful to have everyone here and have my dad feeling better to celebrate as a family.

The snow is starting to come down thick as I write this quick update!

I want to thank all of our wonderful customers for supporting us this year!

Downtown Farmer’s Market

We are officially back at the downtown farmer’s market, on Saturdays.  Our booth is located on the east side of the park from 8am to 2pm, stop by and say hello!  We are always so excited to see everyone there!

 

We have a beautiful new soap up online, Lily of the Valley.  Such a pretty bar and an enchanting scent!

Also some new stamps for our soaps have arrived and they are adorable.

Sheep Stamp!

 

Getting a garden to survive the harsh winds we can get out here has proved to be something of a challenge.  We finally put up some wind screen and hope that this will help take care of the problem, and keep our tomatoes from being blown over!

Piglets and baby goats are still running around everywhere.  We have a few of both still for sale.  The baby goats we had this year were the cream of the crop, we just had some of the most beautiful babies ever!

Happy Valentine’s Day

We had a very special baby born just in time for Valentine’s day, Cupids Bow or maybe we should name her Hearts Desire, what a beauty!  Our other new little darling is Spotted Owl,  both of their mothers are superior milkers.  We are so excited for all the new babies we have had lately.  We are making lots of soap and getting geared up for the summer farmers market in Salt Lake City. We cannot wait to see everyone there!

Fall Farm Updates

Our Old Spot pigs are doing great, we built a small chicken coop and have a few adorable young chickens running around! Recently we made a new batch of winter mint soap and are currently working on making shaped soaps for the Christmas season.  We have been building a new agricultural building, so far we have been lucky in that it hasn’t snowed to much and we were able to get the roof on!  It is coming along great!
Thank you to all my soap customers have a wonderful holiday season.

End of Summer and a New Farm

We sold the farm in the city and moved to the high desert mountain area of Lofgreen Utah, moving the farm has been crazy difficult, the Goats are doing fine, though they do miss there lush green pasture but we plan to start one next spring.  I am still working at the hospital in town, with a long hour drive to and from, here are a few pictures, still making soap,  milking goats, and our Old Spot pigs are getting huge. A big thanks to all of you still  purchasing the soap!  Have a wonderful end of summer.

New Year!

Happy New Year! Better late then never.  We have a new soap up on our web site, Cabernet Sauvignon.  It is such a beautiful and wonderful smelling soap! Lucienne had four babies today two adorable does, and 2 strapping bucks, all four healthy and happy as can be.  Finally the most exciting news for the new year, (for me), is our new puppy!  My little brother and I decided to name her LeeLoo, she is a Catahoula hound, and she is the happiest and most precious baby.  She loves to play and play, and then just drop wherever she is and fall asleep.  We all love her so much!

Baby Piggies!

We recently drove to Wheatland Wyoming and picked up three baby Gloucestershire Old Spot pigs.  They will be registered GOSA, they are from the blue family group.  The Gloucestershire Old Spot pigs are known for their docility and intelligence.  We named them; Witch-hazel, Clover and black pearl.  We just love having them around!

Wintermint is back up to purchase, it is that time again to start thinking about the Holidays and Gifts.  Especially international orders which can take up to four weeks.

When placing you order please make sure that your address is correct and current.  We have recently had many people not checking for this and their soap is going to the wrong address.  Thank you so much for trying to help us with this, as we want you to get your soap as quickly as possible!
