We are really excited to announce our most recent supplier for two reasons. First because it is a really awesome product, but second because it is the first in our new upcoming line of non-edible products. For 3 years we have restricted the farmers we work with to edible products only. We've now made the decision to allow the farmers we work with to list non-edible items that they are producing on their farms! These products will be made with all natural ingredients that the farms themselves are producing. Please keep an eye out for more items likes goat's milk soaps & candles, wool dryer balls, and even farm produced apothecary items!
But let's tell you more about this lard soap first. Butts Bros lard soup is hand made by Justin Butts (a Culinary Institute of America student) at Wilklow Orchards in Highland, NY. He uses all food grade ingredients for his soaps. He has several standard flavors that will be available year round, but he also creates seasonal soaps using local seasonal ingredients. The lard for Justin's soap comes from Kune Kune pigs that he raises on the farm. These pigs live happy lives foraging on apples all day from the orchard. Here are a few of our favorite flavors that will be available in the coming weeks to order:
Chocolate Coffee Stout (my personal favorite!)
The Farmer's Friend (Lemongrass and Cedar scents)
Lavender Lemon (Ok, so he does get citrus fruit from the south!)
Red Wine Orange Vanilla (yes, you'll want to eat this one, but don't!)
