    I live in S Dakota for over 25 years and for almost 18 now with goats. Therefore, I make GM soaps. I am now selling at a few places wholesale, and this month will find me at my first farmers market. I call my stuff 'Gramma Goats' Soapworks' named for the old goat who I first loved, Gramma. I now have a small herd of 3 milkers, and will keep one doeling for next year and let the oldest just raise kids.
    I make about 27, 5.5oz bars per batch, and have now added colors. I am trying to get down to a set number of scents, 20, but that is hard! as soon as I think I got a nice selection, I find a new one I gotta have! ugh.
    I lurk here often but rarely post, not sure I have much to add as so many here are far more advanced than I. thanks for having me!

    Hi there tinybubbles! It sounds to me like you're quite experienced in GM soap so will have a lot to offer on the subject!

    Yea rah Tinybubbles!! You're an inspiration already. I always struggled with whole GM soaps. I'm a reviving soaper with a lot to practice. Love your 'Gramma Goats Soaps' name. My grandkids call me Grammadee. Welcome!

    Welcome tinybubbles! SD is a wonderful state. We have family in Belle Fourche. I would move there to retire, but it’s too cold for me in the winter. My SIL and BIL keep trying to find us a house, but then she sends me pics of the thermometer in the winter...

    At about 3 times the price as you can get it in Sturgis during the off season (Non Rally Time)

    Yep, I ended up buying mine at Boot Barn :) Still, it’s fun as eye candy.
