Back in the Saddle Again
That title might be a bit misleading because there are no actual saddles involved, unless you count the leather scent in our "man" products. But we are BACK. After slightly more than a year away from actively selling at the Brazos Valley Farmers' Market, we returned for the First Saturday of February. We got to enjoy a clear, cool day, reconnect with our market friends, and enjoy the company of customers both old and new. We won't discuss taking three days to recuperate!
For those of you who don't know, we were on hiatus due to the fun of building a house. Not our house, mind you, our daughter's house. She and her family finally moved to a 20-acre farm just north of Calvert where they will be setting up a regenerative agriculture operation. Right now, the only things they are raising are children, a pack of livestock guardian dogs, and one slightly befuddled chicken who wandered onto the property and found herself part of the circus. But in another few weeks it will be planting time and the work begins!
Getting the house project finished and the younger set moved onto the farm means that now we can focus on making soap. We've got bars of our popular man soap curing, our lavender mint and licorice root shampoos are back in stock, and I'm doing some much-needed "housekeeping" on our website. There are a couple other projects in the works including a handout on natural living that will be available at our booth soon, and just maybe a book idea percolating in the background. We'll have to see if my time, my enthusiasm, and my writing can all get together in the same room for that last one!
For the foreseeable future, our market schedule will be First Fridays along with the other Market vendors on Main Street and then First Saturdays at the Brazos Valley Farmers' Market farther down Main close to Ronin. As always, you can contact us via email, Facebook, Instagram, or phone/text if you have questions. You can place orders on our website for local pickup on First Saturdays, local delivery (with a $5 fee), or we can ship in the Continental U.S.
From our cottage to yours...
