Scavenger Hunt Open House

23 Apr

My town is an amazing small town!

Not only do I love that you have a farm just inside the city limits (or more than one), but they are super supportive of my farm just south of the town.


I do appreciate all of their support, and I hope they like the products and services that I provide.

Last weekend, I started milking half of Clover. Really.  She lost her buckling, and her doe will still only suck from one side, so I’m milking the other one out.  She’s figured out this is the entrance to the new milk room.


In these two glass jars is one day’s worth of milking one side of her out.  I think that’s pretty good!


I am using this milk to make homemade goat’s milk lotion (and freezing some for more soap) to sell.

I’m really excited about making lotion, and I’ll have more new items coming to my soap room.  I’m going to do another open farm this coming Saturday.

Hopefully, I stay healthy and feel like it’s a good idea to promote it a bit more this time.  Hopefully, I can do this every weekend once I’m done teaching for the summer.

If you want, there’s still time to join in Friday’s Hunt.  This week’s items are at the top of my sidebar.

I’m sharing with Scavenger Hunt Sunday (items in bold), Weekend Reflections, and The Barn Collective.

    That looks like quite a bit of milk for one side of only one little goat lady. Seems odd that her doeling only wants to suck from one side!.

    I really like your first two photos!

      It’s because the kids will sometimes go to the same side, and now that her brother is gone, she is still just going to the same side.

    Because we love your products and I can’t wait to try the lotion!

      Thanks, Jen! Up next is my bug repellent lotion bars. 😉

        I am so excited about those! I have been telling everyone!

    I think it is a lovely idea to make your creams using the goat milk! A bug repellent would also be wonderful.

      Thanks. I thought a lotion bar bug repellent was a great idea. Hope it works as well as it sounds.

    Your products looks really nice displayed in the photo and is the lotion for the body, face or what? Great tams for your meme. Hope you are having a lovely weekend

    • Teresa April 24, 2016 at 10:01 am #

      Thanks! The lotion would work for anything, but it’s probably best for hands, arms, and legs.

    I didn’t realize Clover lost her little buckling. He seemed to be doing well. Hoping your Open Farm plans work out well for you.

      Her kids both were sick when they were born with a bacterial infection that attacks the brain. Sadly, he was too far for the antibiotics to help. I do hope her girl will make it.

        I hope so, too.

    Hello, it is great you can use your own goat’s milk to make the lotion. I wish you good luck on your next open farm! Happy Sunday, enjoy your new week ahead!

    • Teresa April 24, 2016 at 10:03 am #

      I am really excited about the lotion! My mom tried it and decided it was pretty amazing!

    I’m so glad that I live in an area with many farms, both large and smal. Thank Teresa for joining in this week and I hope to see you again.

      I always love barns, but I figure you’d get tired of me always sharing mine. I was happy to sneak in a barn photo that wasn’t mine.

    Quite a lot of milk from only one side. We used to have Pygoras but no more. Neat to have. Love your tail count—good idea. Your lotions sound wonderful.

    • Teresa April 24, 2016 at 2:51 pm #

      My goats don’t give near as much as some full-sized diary goats, but Clover is only half dairy, so I thought she did quite well.

    Small towns are the best!

    A very nice barn. Glad you support each other…

      It really is a pretty amazing little town. Of course, I’ve lived here almost all of my life.
