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!
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!

We brought an 8N ford tractor home , it runs and will be a fun winter project to restore. We will certainly put it to work here on our little farm! We have opened the pickles finally after weeks and weeks of having to wait and they are AMAZING! So garlicky and delicious. I think we could all sit down and eat and entire jar (my favorite part is the whole cloves of pickled garlic, I pick all of them out to eat. – Kylee). It is that time of the year again! We can dry Honey Crisp apples and make warm apple crisp, both are so delicious! Our garden is still going strong and we have been getting fabulous tomatoes!

It is the first day of Fall! we have had so much fun making beautiful round, pumpkin beer soap for the fall market. Pumpkin is such a popular and beautiful scent! Especially around this time of year! Our garden is still looking lovely and we have some very cool Cinderella pumpkins with one growing in the apple tree!

The garden looks so amazing we have been getting so much beautiful produce! We took a trip to Tooele to pick up wonderful old mountain farm Vinny, he was out on Lease. The Farmer’s Market has been keeping us very busy every Saturday, it is so much fun!
We also have a NEW Carrot Soap it has Carrot Essential oil, 1/2 farm fresh goat milk, 1/2 organic carrot juice, carrot powder, raw honey, and Redmond clay, all wonderful things for skin! It will be ready to go in a few weeks. We are super excited for this soap.

Last but not least, this week we donated soap to the Briana Project, One element of the project is to make Clean Birth Kits to give to the local birth attendants. These kits will be sent to women in Senegal, and will include many things that will help with safe, clean births, including bars of our soap. We are so pleased to be part of this fabulous project.
