A Goat's Milk Soap Company
"All our soaps are made with goat's milk and are created from the finest quality of oils, essential oils, fragrance oils, and local ingredients"
-- Meghan Garrison, Owner of HomeMaker Farms
The Story behind HomeMarker Farms
Owner of HomeMaker Farms
All of our soaps (unless specified) are made with goat’s milk and
are created from the finest quality of oils, essential oils, fragrance
oils and local ingredients. The goat’s milk that we use comes fresh
from an old-time friend who has a goat farm in West Point,
Indiana. The beeswax used in some of the recipes comes from my
bee mentor in Mulberry, Indiana and the honey used comes from
our very own bee hive on our farm in Lafayette, Indiana. I enjoy
going back to the basics and using natural colorants and additives
when making the soaps so that I know I am working with the
simplest ingredients. I use mainly clays and powdered forms of
vegetables, bee pollen, charcoal, cocoa, plant roots and titanium
dioxide when creating the designs of my soaps. For decorative and
exfoliant properties I use poppy seeds, coffee grounds, orange peels, lemon peels, oats, dried
flowers and cranberry seeds. I also stick to using plant-based oils and butters which include:
olive oil, coconut oil, sweet almond oil, rice bran oil, castor oil, canola oil, avocado oil, hemp
oil, grapeseed oil, apricot kernel, oil, cocoa butter, mango butter, and shea butter (just to
name a few). The oils and essential oils used in the soaps come from Jedward International,
INC - a US Company that offers Fair Trade, Friend of the Sea, and USDA Organic; and Bramble
Berry – a well-respected and high-quality soaping supply company.
I decided to begin making my own soap because as a mother of 4 children we go
through a lot of soap! I also wanted to use a product that would not
only clean my hands, but
condition them as well. I work outside in my large garden hand pulling the weeds, keeping up
with the landscaping, taking care of the chickens, and doing whatever yardwork needs to be
done. My hands deserve a treat for working so hard! Another reason to pay attention to what I
used for washing my hands was because I want my kids to remember their mom having
strong, but soft hands. The goat’s milk soap that I have created gives me exactly what I was
looking for. Another benefit from my handcrafted soaps is the wonderful aroma that comes
from the essential and fragrance oils used in the soaps.
Ours hands are what we wash the most and what we use to hold our most precious
blessings. Treat yourself to a product that will make your hands feel great!
