Making Goat Milk Soap - Goat Haute Adventures Blog - GRIT Magazine

I thoroughly enjoy making goat milk soap. There's something satisfying about being involved in the process from start to finish; I milk the goat, freeze the milk, make the soap, package it, and sell it to people who discover, as I have, that goat milk soap (GMS) is one of life's little-known pleasures.

First Time Pygmy Owners!

"Jim and Debbie were fantastic and took their time showing us around their amazing farm. We fell in love with two Pygmy does and two Pyrenees puppies! Debbie and Jim armed us with plenty of info, and even medications just in case as the day we brought our girls home was quite stormy. They PERSONALLY offer lifetime support for your Pygmies which is great knowing 30+ years of experience is just a phone call away! Thank you both for making a dream come true for us! I have always wanted these cuties!"
