Many nights this week were spent making Buffalo Gal's Soap. I'm beginning to see what are the favorites of my buyers and which ones I need to keep more of in stock. This week I made two recipes of goat's milk soap for Loofah Sponges, a recipe of Honey Creme soap and two recipes of Nitty Gritty soap. These will be curing for 6 weeks and will then be able to be sold. Other favorites are Happy Camper and Shepherd's Pride soaps. Soap sales at SilkRoad Salon and Spa are brisk and they were restocked on Thursday afternoon. I'm also picking up another location for soap sales in Walkertown, NC at Double Z Farm owned by Darren Ziglar who has Boer goats in Stokesdale, NC. Amy Thomas and I met on Thursday afternoon to go over plans for the Meat Animal Production Class sponsored by Forsyth Tech beginning August 20. We went to the ESC office in Winston-Salem to see the location of the classroom, the size of the room and to see what equipment was available to be used.
