Why we do, what we do

While most soaps today are created synthetically, we wanted to create a handcrafted soap with only natural ingredients. Many of scents and exfoliates we offer in our goat milk soaps are inspired by what we grow on our land. We are continually experimenting to create unique blends to be used in every part of life. Goat Hill Farm is located on 5 acres in the Chehalem Valley foothills. We strive on being friends of the environment and repurpose and recycle as much as possible.

 

 

 

A Little About Us

Finding ourselves “empty nesters” in the fall of 2005, Mike and I decided it was time to get out of the city.  After only a short time we found a 5 acre plot of land located in the Chehalem Mountain foothills on the outskirts of Newberg Oregon smack dab in the middle of wine country. Our “farm family” currently consists of dogs, cats, free-range layer chickens, Nigerian Dwarf Goats and turkeys.

 

We continue to keep our day jobs but our real dream is to retire and support ourselves on what we raise, grow, and produce from our farm. We work diligently clearing land, preparing soil, planting and maintaining our animals. Our life is full of daily blessings.

 

Goats, Goats, Goats

The Nigerian dairy breed produces a surprising amount of milk for their small stature. Nigerian goat milk is higher in butterfat (up to 6-10%) and higher in protein than milk from other dairy goat breeds. Nigerian's sweet disposition and engaging personalities make them wonderful pets and companions. Another attribute of the Nigerian breed is their coloring. They come in many colors and you never know what to expect until they are born.

The Farm

Goat Hill Farm is located on 5 acres, approximately 3 miles from towns edge of Newberg, Oregon. We have grown into our land over the last 6 years with much more to come. Every day brings new ideas of what we want to do with our farm. We have attempted to utilize current structures, as an example, turning a very well built tree house into a ground level "grow shack" which houses starts of herbs, vegetables and spring batches of chicks.

 

We look forward to learning and growing with our property and do our best to be good stewards of the land that we have been blessed with. Nothing pleases us more than to share our environment of fresh air, warm earth, home grown fruits and vegetables with our family and friends.
