In 2016, we purchased our first beehive and began a small goat herd on property once farmed by my great-grandmother, Minnie Bullock. Our farm name comes from the middle names of our daughter and son. We produce goat milk soap, raw honey, beeswax products, and all natural candles. Each item is handmade on site using all natural ingredients. Our goal has been to stay connected to the land, keep things as pure as possible, and demonstrate homesteading to our children.
What Makes Our Products Great?
The goat milk, honey, and beeswax used in our products are harvested by hand here at our farm. Our soaps, lotions, and honey are simple and natural. Our goat milk soap contains only sustainable oils and 100% pure essential oils for scent. For color, we select all natural alternatives that are free from chemicals and artificial dyes.
Soap made at Emma Wilder Farm is cold processed and produced in small batches. This ensures quality and consistency. Each batch of soap is mixed by hand and poured by hand. Every soap bar is hand cut and cured for a minimum of four weeks.
Our hard-working honey bees produce a fantastic beeswax which is used in our lotion bars. The unscented beeswax lotion bar also contains olive oil and shea butter. That's all, it's that simple! We harvest honey twice a year. The honey frames are uncapped and spun by hand. The raw honey is then filtered and bottled.
We care about everything we produce on our farm. We care about keeping things as natural as possible. We care about the people purchasing our products and we are thankful to have come this far.
