Thanks for taking the time to keep up with Goat Milk Stuff
! The newsletter special for this month is a free half bar of soap with a $30 minimum order (please follow the directions at the end of the newsletter).
Here's what is new this October…
Limited Edition Soaps
The limited edition soap scents for this month are Candy Corn, Cranberry, Pumpkin, and Spearmint Lime. Candy Corn is one we've never tried before, so let us know if you like it. Colter had fun coloring it!
We also have limited quantities of Cider Press, Dragon Blood, Evergreen, and Peach available while supplies last.
Activated Bamboo Charcoal Soap
We have another batch of Activated Bamboo Charcoal available now. We are considering making this a permanent soap, so if that is something you'd like to see, you need to let us know. We will determine whether or not to make it permanent based on the feedback we receive.
The Fall is a great time to come out and visit the farm. We're working on integrating "taste testing" our milk, cheese, and other dairy food products into the tour. We love getting to meet people and share our goats and our farm, so if you're going to be in the neighborhood, we hope you can come for a tour. You can find the tour information on our website or sign up for a tour yourself.
Goat Milk Fudge
We are having very mixed feedback on our goat milk fudge trials. In fact we're getting polar opposite reviews - people either love it or hate. We've had a few comments that the fudge tastes like soap. Even though the fudge is made and packaged in a separate building, it does come into the soaproom to be shipped out. We are currently implementing several ideas to ensure to the best of our ability that the fudge doesn't pick up any soap scent. We'll continue to be making (and offering) trial batches of fudge until we are able to get a consistent product that everybody loves!
Grade A Dairy
Thank you so much for everyone who prayed for our State inspections. They were a success and we are now a Grade A dairy! That means that we are now able to sell our goat milk cheese, yogurt, drinkable yogurt, kefir, and pasteurized milk. We did discover that we are not allowed to ship yogurt, kefir, or milk outside of the state of Indiana until we get our IMS (Interstate Milk Shipper) approval. We are working on getting that approval, but are pleased that we are able to ship our cheese now.
I was so excited about our approval, I got a "selfie" with our dairy inspectors!
Goat Milk Cheese
We are now selling our goat milk cheese (chevre) in our Scottsburg retail room. You can come and pick it up anytime during store hours. We are waiting for our labels to arrive and then we will be able to ship the cheese as well. Expect to see cheese available on our website by the second week of October. Those labels better arrive soon - we've got lots of cheese to share with everyone!
Pasteurized Goat Milk and Drinkable Yogurt
Both of these items will be available in our Scottsburg store by the second week in October. Once we receive our IMS approval, these will be available in limited quantities on the website as well.
