In the end of March, I visited the farm of some cherished family members of mine who run Goldenwood Soap.
They use goats milk to create a variety of soaps, lotions, body sprays, and more. I use some of them myself and highly recommend them for the wonderful scents and healing effects they have on my sensative skin. To make these products, they would of course need to have goats on hand.
In breeding happy and healthy goats to make the best products, springtime brings kidding season. This is the season when all the new babies are born. People were welcomed to visit the seasonal farm store and love on the baby goats, which resulted in one of the best days ever.
Justine (pictured in images 24-27 and 29) Is like a mother to the goat kids and you really can tell that they adore her. Justine is the daughter of Kurt (pictured in image 35) and Judy (pictured in images 4 and 11). Together they run this business, caring for the goats and making so many lovely soap products.
I took most of these, but passed the camera to my husband so that I could get some cuddles in. He took some good shots of me geeking out over these adorable nuggets.
Feel free to check out goldenwoodsoap.com for products and info about this lovely business!
Happy Mother's Day!
