January Wrap Up!

While it may seem like January should be a slow month for the business and farm that couldn’t be further from the truth. The holidays bring a constant stream…. or waterfall… of orders and no matter how much we prepare in the months before (starting in JUNE) we are always left with a greatly depleted stock of our goat milk soaps. Every January we are in a race to get our stock back up and because our soap takes six weeks to cure it can take us well into March to get to a comfortable level. However, with an exception of a few varieties, we have had enough to keep our costumers well stocked through the month of January… although, it’s always a nail biter watching and waiting for those cure dates to arrive. Luckily, this year has been an easier restock. We changed up how we do our production in order to be more efficient and it has allowed us to make a lot more soap than we were able to in the same time period last year.

This month we discontinued our beeswax candles and essential oil rollers to make way for some products we are working on. The moment we made the announcement y’all flooded us with orders and we nearly sold out immediately. We have a few essential oil rollers and unscented candles hanging around but that’s it.

January is also a busy time on the farm! We try to use this time to get projects done. As is the case for every farm… there are endless projects. We tackle them bit by bit as a family. I break things down into small bites and it seems less overwhelming. I find it is easier, and less frustrating, to get projects done when you don’t try to get it all done in one weekend.

The (goat) girls are also getting quite large! They are all in the later stages of their pregnancies. We will have lots of baby goats bouncing around towards the end of February/beginning of March.

Everyone seems to be loving our 365 project! We have been posting everyday, sharing little snips of our life, business, and farm. If you aren’t doing so already, follow us on all of our social medias to keep up with all of our posting – Facebook, Instagram, TikTok

Finally, check out the video wrap up of our 365 project’s January postings. It turned out so lovely.
