So nice! Thank you. Can't wait to make something out of it.
Harvesting the blessings from our sheep, goats and pastured pigs.
Hi and welcome to Autumn Creek Ranch on Etsy! My name is Amy and along with my husband, Steve and 18 children, we farm a beautiful piece of land in the Pacific Northwest.
About 12 years ago, we realized that we were not eating as we should. We read books like "Nourishing Traditions" and "The Makers Diet" which convinced us that a whole foods diet was best. "The Makers Diet" recommended goat's milk as an excellent addition to this kind of eating plan.
At the time we owned an 8 acre piece of property in New Mexico (my husband was a helicopter pilot in the Air Force which is why we lived in New Mexico) which had a huge barn. Nether my husband or I had any experience with farming!! But, we decided to jump in and get dairy goats! And from there the adventure has just continued...
As we started farming, we found that we loved it! We soon added pastured, heritage pigs, Navajo Churro sheep, Jersey and Galloway cattle, Great Pyrenees Livestock dogs, Angora goats and a plethora of hens.
My soap making journey began along the same time as we had extra goats milk. Over time we have added organic and wildcrafted essential oils, our pastured lard, organic carrier oils and clay for a truly 100% natural soap.
When they are not trying to jump fences, our sheep and goats bring us great joy. I have loved exploring the different ways to use their fibers and I hope you will too.
We have two websites associated with our farm:
We hope you will stop by and visit us!
