Join us at the Goat Conspiracy to learn the basics of making soap from goat milk. Together we will make a batch of soap and we will end the day with a glass of wine. Those who are interested can also get a brief tour of our farm and meet some of our sweet goats. Each participant will leave with 5 bars of soap from the batch we make.
