My Hobby #1 We all know chicken math right? Yep, been there done that, well I moved on to goat math, that’s right my love for Nigerian dwarf goats and their milk drove my math skills up to an advanced class! I enjoy my goats so much, they are almost like dogs, but less work. I began milking after our first stressful kidding, everything went well it was the newbie thing and I stressed myself out with the unknown! It wasn’t long after I fell in love with these little kids as well as the goat milk. I had way too much milk, I was giving it away and even to people to feed to their meat chickens to help fatten them up quicker! I learned how to make wonderful chocolate pudding pies, cajeta a fantastic mexian carmel, fudge is always amazing, yogurt is delish too! I made a few cheeses and that really started to use the milk quickly, and just as quick I realized I am no cheesemaker! Just wasn’t for me, so I thought,“well I can try soap”. And I did! Goat Milk soap is amazing soap! I had never used goat milk soap before and it was such a difference I couldn’t believe it! So I started to research and take notes. We all know how I can take some notes! Anyway, I bought book after book, whodathunk I would learn chemistry in the process! I educated myself on healthy skin and on and on…. I started to get addicted to making soap so I gave a few bars away and quickly they had asked for more and more, and then their friends and family wanted to try it as well, and that’s how and why I started Lil Swatara Soap LLC. It is now a business and with the holidays quickly coming up I am putting way too many hours into making and packing soap but it is quickly paying off! In fact, I am going to GIVE AWAY 8 BARS OF my Goat milk SOAP! That’s right, we will draw an extra 8 numbers after the calendars and I will send out soap to each of those 8 winning number draws! GET THOSE HOBBIES POSTED!
