• wine trail

made with organic coconut oil, local organic sunflower oil, organic ethically sourced palm oil, natural grape seed oil, moroccan red clay, local Bloomer Creek Vineyard Cafe Red & our own goat’s milk

• Brewer's Hop

an all purpose soap made with local Ithaca Brewery seasonal hoppy beer (at the moment I'm using Ground Break). The sugars in beer are a natural source of glycolic acid, which is a powerful antioxidant.

Hops have been used in brewing since the ninth century. Initially they were used widely as a preservative for beer. The brewers recognized that if they included hops, the beer lasted longer. The properties and benefits of hops become a skin blessing when used as the base for soap. Hops is known as a relaxing herb. Other benefits to hops: soothes irritated skin; contains polyphenols thought to account for its anti-bacterial and preservative effects (beer's long life) and skin-softening amino acids.

made with organic coconut oil, natural olive oil, organic local lard, home grown hops blossoms combined with a mixture of locally brewed Ithaca Brewery beer and our own goat's milk.

Note that all alcohol and carbonation is removed from the brew before saponification.

• sugar shack

This maple soap is made with not just maple syrup but also includes sugar sand; a great by product of maple syrup making. Sugar sand consists of all the mineral and sugar deposits which are filtered out during maple syrup production, and is therefor high in natural sugars and manganese, both powerful antioxidants and great for the skin!

made with local organic lard, home made maple syrup, locally produced sugar sand (Sapsquatch Sugar Bush) and our own goat's milk.

Health benefits of real maple syrup are far more comprehensive than you might expect. The only product in our diet coming directly from a plant’s sap, this natural sweetener features over 54 antioxidants that can help delay or prevent diseases caused by free radicals, such as cancer or diabetes. In addition, maple syrup features high levels of zinc and manganese, keeping the heart healthy and boosting the immune system.

It is not surprising that an increasing number of health-conscious consumers bypass white and brown sugar, stevia, agave syrup and honey in the grocery store in favor of pure maple syrup for health benefits in their diet. Did you know that pure maple syrup has the same beneficial classes of antioxidant compounds found in berries, tomatoes, tea, red wine, whole wheat and flax seed? The sheer quantity and variety of identified compounds with documented health benefits qualifies maple syrup as the next champion food.

Maple Syrup Nutritional Value:
  • Maple syrup is an excellent source of manganese, which plays an important role in energy production and antioxidant defenses, and is necessary for normal brain and nerve function. A portion of ¼ cup of maple syrup contains 100% of the Daily Value of manganese.
  • The sweetener provides 37% of the Daily Value of riboflavin, which aids in the metabolic process.
  • Pure maple syrup also contains 18% of the recommended Daily Value of zinc, which is essential for a healthy immune system.
  • Other minerals found in maple syrup are magnesium, calcium and potassium, decreasing the risk of hypertension or stroke.

• dear hunter

A gallon and a half of deer tallow kick started this soap recipe: I did some google research and found that deer tallow makes a hard bar and very creamy & gentle soap - and also helps to mask human scent! As an extra benefit I also added baking soda as a deodorizer. Coincidentally, this also makes for a good dog soap!

made with all natural deer tallow, local organic sunflower oil, organic coconut oil, baking soda & our own goat’s milk

• half and half


A nice moisturizing bar with the benefits of wheat germ and castor oils. Coffee has excellent skin toning benefits and ground coffee acts as a natural exfoliant. It helps to leave the skin smooth, acne free and revitalized. Plus, coffee is deodorizing and coffee soap can remove smells making it a perfect ingredient in a kitchen soap.
