People from as far away as Maryland stop to buy Little Mill Creek Goat Milk Soap. The soaps are also available in Ridgway at The Shop On Main and The Clarion River Trading Post.
If you have a craving for chocolate, chocolate walnut, peanut butter or butter pecan goat milk fudge it's available for a donation to the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund. www.celdf.org. (The government guys told me that was ok to sell homemade food without a license if the money was being donated to a non-profit organization) Same goes for the Strawberry Rhubarb Jam, Hot Pepper Mustard, Red and Green Hot Pepper Jelly and Apple Butter. If you want samples of feta, chevre or provolone goat milk cheese they are available for a donation to CELDF also.
We have fresh brown eggs for 2.00 a dozen. Our cookbook, Little Mill Creek Recipes is available for 15.00 and we still have a few copies of The Goat Farm by Dennis Glover. If you want goat milk to bathe in, feed to your pet or make soap it's 3.00 a quart. Or you can buy a goat share and pay us for taking care of your goat every week and pick up your milk and then do whatever you would like with the milk. The fudge, eggs and milk are in the refrigerator in the barn in the summer months. Everything is self- serve. If we aren't here, there's a coffee can by the fridge in the barn and a stainless steel milk can in our little store to deposit your money. We are here by chance or appointment. Thank you for your friendship, old and new.
