We have soap and honey IN STOCK. I’ve been talking about it forever but we finally have it here.
The sales room now smells awesome with the soap sitting here. I’m definitely keeping this stuff around from now on. This soap is from the lady, Jennifer, who will be doing our beekeeping going forward. She will be transferring our bees over to her hives this week and bringing more bees to our farm so that we can finally have all the honey we can use (I hope!)
In addition to beekeeping, she’s been buying my lard over the years and making soap with it. Since her soap looks SO much better than mine, as in it’s actually packaged, had a label, etc, I asked her if she would let me sell some of her soap in our store and she agreed. What you see here is soap made from the lard of our pigs, along with all the other oils and fragrances that make great soap. I know they are different recipes so I don’t know what ratio which one has but these are the real deal. If you want to read more about what they do and how they do it, check out their new farm website, Buck Naked Farm.
In addition to the soaps, we also have an initial order of honey on hand. This honey isn’t from our bees yet, it’s from Jennifer’s bees who live in the mountains of NC. I of course scammed a bottle for myself to taste and it is better than the honey I extracted myself. I’m sure our honey will improve with Jennifer’s ministrations but for now we are blessed to have this honey on hand. Hopefully we’ll get a bit of honey from our farm when we move the bees. Next year we should definitely have honey and honey going forward as well.
You’ll also note that besides having labels, everything is very well presented. When you see what I’ve displayed, it is all white, cold, and without style. Jennifer walked in with not only product, but displays, signs, baskets, flowers, and all the things that make it obvious a woman has been here. I know I’ve been meaning to get some color in our room, but I didn’t know how badly it needed it till I saw her displays. I’ve gone to work on it though, we’ll have some stuff on the walls shortly.
