Who We Are
Welcome to our farm!
I'm Jessica and I live on ten beautiful, rolling acres in Indiana with my husband, Misha and our daughters, Ursula and Beatrix. Our family lives a rambling, homesteading life on our farm where we raise milk goats, honey bees, free range chickens and many other animals. Our soap is lovingly handmade in small batches with fresh ingredients from our farm. We try to live as cleanly and as waste free as possible. Our products do not contain chemicals, perfumes, detergents, unnatural dyes nor any parabens, sulfates, or triclosan. The natural contents in our soap will not add synthetic compounds into the environment or on your body. What you see in the ingredients list is exactly what is in the soap--nothing more!
It's a Lifestyle
Our daughters help with the daily chores of feeding, milking and tending to our menagerie. Our garden gives us fresh vegetables and herbs, our free range flock always provides nutritious eggs, and we have enough fruit trees and berry bushes to eat healthy, newly harvested fruit all season--as well as preserve enough for the whole winter. In the spring, we tap our trees to make delicious maple syrup. You can watch some of the day to day activities on our farm through our vlog, Laughing Goat Farm.
Clean. Fresh. Natural. This is the mindset behind our wholesome, handmade soaps. We never use materials harmful to the environment in our packaging, nor are there any substances damaging to the environment in our soaps. We try to live as self sustainably as we can and minimize waste.
It's a lifestyle we enjoy.
We love and appreciate our lifestyle and that enjoyment goes into our soap. We are happy and proud to share part of our sustainable lifestyle with you through our products. Enjoy!
This is our first milk goat, Bibi -- the calmest, sweetest goat you will ever meet. We love her so much we put her face on the logo! She and her "sisters" make the creamy, nutritious milk that goes into our soaps. Our milkers are Bibi, KT, Mei Li, Esther, and Margie.
All our milk goats are purebred Nigerian Dwarf goats. They are fed a nutritious diet and forage all day on an untreated, chemical-free pasture. Somehow, they manage to convince us to give them lots of treats like carrots, apples, pumpkins, maple leaves and, especially, their favorite--raisins!
