🧼 Artisan Soap, Made in Idaho 🧼

Did you know all of our soaps are made by hand, right here on the farm?  This is one of the many ways we ensure product quality and safety.  We reduce waste by using virtually every part of the animal to create premium quality value-added products like our hand made artisan soaps.

 

Measuring oils for handmade ostrich oil soap

 We start with our super moisturizing, 100% pure ostrich oil - the largest ingredient in all of our soaps.  Although very similar to emu oil, ostrich oil consists of over 70% oleic acid and palmitic acid, which enables greater skin-permeability than emu.  Ostrich oil's higher concentration of Omega fatty acids - specifically, Omega 9 - allows it to better penetrate and hydrate the skin, enabling superior results.

We then we add carefully selected & sustainably sourced pure oils like babassu, almond, coconut, sunflower, and shea butter.  The combination of additional oils is optimized not only for deep, effective cleansing, but also for providing maximum moisture back to the skin.  These oils are blended together over heat for a smooth, even texture, and then poured into molds to set for 2 days.

After two days we remove the now solid "loaf" from the trays and slice into bars by hand with a cutting device that uses sharp wire strings that make it look like the inside of a piano!

Once individually cut, the bars then cure for an additional 30 days before they are labeled and ready to be shipped to your door.  The curing process hardens the soap bars to ensure a long-lasting product.

  

Using ostrich oil to create all-natural soaps is just one way we reduce our environmental impact - by not letting any part of the animal go to waste and providing Americans with choices they can feel great about.

What Does Farm-to-Table Really Mean?

January 08, 2021

“Farm-to-table” (sometimes called “farm-to-fork”) traditionally refers to the use of food that has been grown, prepared, and consumed either on-site in a single location, or without passing through a middleman such as a grocery store or other distributors.  The traditional meaning has been blurred somewhat by its use to describe farmer’s markets, restaurants that source local or regional foods, and even grocers that retail foods from local and regional producers.  Today, farm-to-table is as likely to refer to greater transparency in food sourcing and support for local/regional producers, in addition to the traditional meaning.

An All-Natural Skincare Routine You Can Do at Home

January 08, 2021

Healthy skin can not only boost your self-esteem; it can also be an indication of good overall health.  Considering the ever-expanding nature of the skincare market, it is more important than ever to be educated about what is available on the market and what goes into the products you use.  While there are no regulations surrounding what beauty products can and cannot be labeled “natural,” the designation of “natural” typically indicates that the product only utilizes naturally occurring materials, and true natural skincare products often boast a wide array of benefits and uses that go far beyond basic skincare. However, it is important to keep in mind that a holistic skincare regimen not only involves the choice of natural skin products that work well with your skin type, but also good lifestyle choices in general, such as exercise and a healthy diet.
