Handmade Goats’ Milk Soaps and….

lotions, laundry soap, shampoo bars- lots of neat products made from the milk of their own nubian dairy goat herd at Cross Timber Farms. Shipping is now free, and the soap bars are only $4.00 for a 4 oz bar.

I just received my order in the mail. It came incredibly quickly. The little cottage business is run by a homeschooling family with seven children. I don’t know them personally, but we do have a mutual friend I know in Real Life (we go to the same family camp every year, and her brother and sister-in-law hosted our Jenny in Germany last year). Our mutual friend crochets the little bags they sell for their soaps.

These are nice products- although my lotion froze solid in the mail, because it’s about 2 degrees here right now and we have snow on the ground, it’s thawing out nicely.

I chose broom-maker’s hand therapy healing balm, because the cold weather is hard on our wood-cutter’s hands; fragrance free shea butter, olive oil and aloe soap for the dry-skinned, and fragrance free olive oil soap, and one bar of Bergamot for me.

They have pictures of their children, goats, and farm on the website, as well as pictures and information on all their products.

Check them out!

    I decided to check out the Cross Timbers farm store after reading this and ordered the milk, oat, and honey soap as well as the coffee soap. I LOVE that it had free shipping! My order also arrived very fast and I’ve been using the milk oat and honey soap for several days now. It is wonderful! The smell is really delicious, and the soap is just what I was looking for. I find that a lot of more “natural” soaps don’t lather very well, but this one lathers beautifully, yet leaves my skin feeling silky and moisturized. And of course it’s made of great wholesome ingredients that I’m happy to use on my and my family’s skin. I believe I have now found my go-to source for our family’s soap! I’ll have to try some lotion next…
