I am not bound for any public place, but for ground of my own where I have planted vines and orchard trees, and in the heat of the day climbed up into the healing shadow of the woods. Better than any argument is to rise at dawn and pick dew-wet red berries in a cup. ~Wendell Berry

Goat's Milk Soap and Give-Away
Sisters Five Soap and Lotion Works
goat's milk soaps are cured
(My product list may still be pending review at the
time of this post, but I wanted to give you the link
if you wanted to check out the website).
I became a member in December 2007, buying and
selling through them for a year. They were very supportive
and I had very good sales each month.
I loved being a part of the coop The only
drawback for me at the time was there was no drop off
or pick up in my area and it meant driving or paying shipping
to get my products to Omaha and then driving again the
following week if I placed an order, to go pick it up.
I am so delighted that now they have pick up and drop off
in Norfolk and I can order all I like now.
There is an amazing list of products.
If you have a food coop in your state, I wholeheartedly
encourage you to join.
This is their mission statement:
Our Mission: To foster a local food community and promote a culture of stewardship by cultivating farmer-consumer relationships, promoting the enjoyment of healthful food, increasing food security through diversity, and enhancing overall rural sustainability.
We will also be displaying our products later this summer
at local farmers markets, along with veggies and herbs from our garden.
I would love be part of the Omaha Farmers Market -
but maybe down the road.
I am not willing to give up a whole Saturday just yet.
Our website is still in development.
I have three pages so far, but have to be
in a really creative mood when I work on it,
and that isn't just ordered up.
In the meantime, I would like to host the drawing for
a free bar of soap I promised I would do once the soaps were cured.
Here is all you need to do to be entered in the drawing:
Post a comment stating which soap you would choose if you were
