During two-hour basic soap-making classes, up to 16 students observe as an expert builds a bar of natural soap from her fresh goat’s milk. Students depart with a bar of soap in a chosen scent and a list of ingredients, instructions, and equipment needed to make their own soap at home.
Four-hour advanced soap-making workshops immerse students in hands-on soap molding. Each two-person team can make a 5-pound batch—or 20 4-ounce bars—using goat’s milk in any choice of fragrance. After class, students take the soap home in its mold so it can sit until it’s ready to be cut into any shape or size. Participants can bring their own drinks to either class and head outside to view the live goats during breaks.<p>
Live goats scamper across the verdant vista at Lady-K Farm, a working dairy farm. Its owner, Karen, spends much of her days shepherding the farm's goats. She supplies bottles of their milk for local families and also uses it to create fresh-smelling bars of natural soap. In addition to wrapping bars in pristine packaging for wholesale, Karen has taught soap-making classes for 15 years to help others harness the milk's skin-softening benefits. Karen also sponsors an annual Goat Husbandry Conference to teach prospective goat owners how to care for the animals, especially when they dress in sheep’s fur in blundered searches for their own identities.
