It’s easy to fall into the winter blues when it seems like not a lot is happening on the weekends. You are stuck inside all week. That’s not how you want to spend your weekends too! During the rest of the year its so nice to start your weekend off with a visit to the farmers markets to stock up on all of your needs and maybe pick up a tasty breakfast, but during the winter what is there to do? Guess what… In Virginia there are still awesome farmers markets to visit. Winter markets have increased greatly over the last few years, so now you don’t have to go without! So where can you pick up our goat milk soaps, laundry detergent, and lotions this winter:
South of the James Farmers Market – It’s undeniable… South of the James is one of the top farmers markets in Virginia and it’s year round! We feel beyond grateful to have such a wonderful place to offer our products. We are out at SOJ every single Saturday of the year, unless the governor declares a state of emergency because of hazardous weather. During the summer there are an incredible number of vendors and many of those vendors stay on all year. If you are coming during the winter you will not be disappointed. Everything you need is still there! There is always at least one or two veggie vendors, honey, dog treats, our goat milk soap products, the list goes on and on… and there are always lots of great choices for breakfast.
Visit South of the James Farmers Market – Every Saturday during the winter – 9am-12pm – New Kent Ave & 42nd Street, Richmond, VA 23225
The Winter Farmers Market at IX Park – This is a brand new winter market in Charlottesville. It has a great selection and is both indoors and outdoors. You can find us at one of the outdoor spots on select Saturdays… Which is hopefully most Saturdays through March.
Visit The Winter Farmers Market at IX Park – Saturdays during the winter – 9am-1pm – 522 2nd Street SE in Charlottesville, Virginia
We are also in the process of applying to several craft shows that will take place this winter so please continue to check in on our Where to Buy page on our website for more up to date information.
Starting this weekend you can find us at The Winter Farmers Market in Charlottesville, VA at IX Park
We will be outside of IX Park in Charlottesville, VA on select Saturdays from 9am-1pm. Come out and see us!

So this is it! This is the last peek into our soap dish and if you have been reading the blog and watching our social media accounts you shouldn’t be surprised by what we use this time of year! What’s in our soap dish in December?…
Winter Goat Milk Soap
You better believe we use our Winter Goat Milk Soap in December! It’s a big treat when this soap comes around. It’s wildly popular and doesn’t last very long, so when we have it I enjoy it! It smells just like how you would expect winter to smell and the ginger essential oil gives it a wonderful warming effect. It’s the perfect bar of soap!

November is usually the month we start using the wood stove to heat the house. We don’t have a fire going all day every day yet, like it will be in January and February, but it still gets a decent amount of use. This means the air in the house tends to be on the drier side and it dries out our skin. So what soap do we use in November…
Oatmeal Honey Goat Milk Soap
Like with our Castile Goat Milk Soap, which was in our soap dish back in January to help us deal with dry skin, our Oatmeal Honey Goat Milk Soap is a great soap to moisture your dry skin during the winter months. This really comes in handy for me this time of year when my skin starts to react to the humidity and weather changes.

Fall is one of my favorite times of year. The air is crisp, the temperature is perfect and our Fall Goat Milk Soap has recently returned. So, this time of year that’s what we are using…
Fall Goat Milk Soap
Our Fall Goat Milk Soap smells exactly how you would expect fall to smell. It has a crisp, warm scent that really sets this amazing season off right! The orange clove scent of this soap makes me happy and brings about wonderful fall memories. Like Fall, this soap is usually not around long, so I really enjoy it while it’s around.

Fall will be settling in soon and our already busy season is about to ramp up even more! It’s nice to have a few soaps that help you relax for a short time and make feel like you are pampering yourself. I find that it’s incredibly important to go into the (extremely) busy season on the right foot, so I make sure to make time to take care of myself! These are the soaps I like to use to do that!
Deep Sea Goat Milk Soap
Our Deep Sea Goat Milk Soap is one of our top sellers and is one of my favorite soaps to use. The feel of the lather and the scent reminds me of a spa. I find it incredibly relaxing. It’s the soap I like to use when I need a moment to myself to relax and regroup.

Deep Space Goat Milk Soap
Have you tried our Deep Space Goat Milk Soap yet? We debuted it a earlier this year and it has been a great addition to our soap line. I love using this soap on my face. The charcoal, lavender, and tea tree are the perfect ingredients for getting our face clean and it has that same “spa” feel of the Deep Sea.

What soaps do we turn to during the dog days of summer? Read on to find out!
Peppermint Eucalyptus Goat Milk Soap
Our Peppermint Eucalyptus Goat Milk Soap has always been my favorite. It’s cleansing and so refreshing! I use this soap year round, but during the summer it’s especially nice. When I come inside from spending hours working in the garden and doing farm chores I reach for this soap. It has a natural cooling effect that energizes me and makes me feel normal again. It’s a great soap for summer!

Rosemary Mint Goat Milk Soap
Our Rosemary Mint Goat Milk Soap also contains peppermint giving it a very similar invigorating, cooling effect as our Peppermint Eucalyptus, however this soap has a deeper, more mellow scent. It’s not only great for making you feel refreshed after a long day working outside, but it’s also great to pick you up and getting you moving in the morning.

Yes, you can use our soap on your hair! I wrote a blog post about it earlier this year (Here). It takes your hair a little while to adjust to the change in regiment, but once it does you then have an all natural alternative to commercial shampoos! The following are the soaps that we like to use:
Coffee Goat Milk Soap
Our Coffee Goat Milk Soap has a PH that is great for hair. This is the bar I use! It is a great deodorizer and has helped control my wild and crazy waves.

Canine Shampoo Goat Milk Soap
That’s right! We are suggesting that you use our Canine Shampoo Goat Milk Soap on your hair. It has tea tree, lavender, and rosemary essential oils, all of which are great for your hair. This is the bar Kevin likes to use!
