Tasha’s Own is named after our very first goat which we bought to provide milk for our daughter, who was allergic to cow’s milk. Purchased sight unseen from a newspaper ad, Tasha was a Nubian, the breed with the highest butterfat content.

All of the goats in our current herd are descended from Tasha. Along with meeting our family’s dairy needs, this little herd has provided nourishing milk for our soap which we began making many years ago in the kitchen of our 1850's farmhouse

We immediately began to share our bars at craft shows and with family and friends. Local shops expressed interest in Tasha’s Own and after joining the oceanfront farmer’s market, we developed quite a following of satisfied and loyal customers.

Three years ago we moved and were able to expand not only our business, but our purpose. We have remained motivated and excited to provide the best product while working tirelessly to keep up with the added responsibilities of our new property.

Since the very first batch of Tasha's Own Goat's Milk Soap was made available to the public, the response to our product, and the philosophy that is at the heart of its production has been remarkable.

By sharing the story of the family and farm behind the product, we hope to inspire others to support not only our soap venture but the way of life that is at the center of it.

Our goal is to raise funds for the purchase of 10 more dairy goats to meet the demands of both our current market as well as the anticipated production increase within the next year. We will also be building better housing and sturdier fences for enclosing the herd.

We also plan to purchase soap wrapping fabric in bulk (which until now we have gleaned from our scrap baskets and children's clothing remnants!) as well as more pans, molds, blenders, cutters and other equipment with which we will be able to more efficiently manufacture our product, thus allowing us to devote more time to other farm responsibilities and marketing.

We have lots of space here on the farm and would like to plant an even larger garden from which we will be able to harvest more herbs and spices, which are an essential ingredient of our soaps. More beehives will provide honey for our soap and balms.

It is our goal to make our soaps available at other Historic Homes, such as Monticello and Mount Vernon, as well as to Bed and Breakfasts across the country. This effort will include a mass mailing of soap samples and literature to these establishments.

We are excited and optimistic about this new endeavor! It seems that wherever we take our soap and its story, we are well received. Business owners are excited to support our vision and product because they know it will benefit their customers!
