We're a handmade soap company in Ohio. Welcome to Chickenmash Farm's online store. How did we get that name? And how did we get our start?
We started out with a few chickens so we could get healthy eggs. I didn't know at the time chickens are the gateway animal. I smile every time someone tells me they just got a few chickens. From there we got our first dairy goat, Star. She was the best first goat anyone could have asked for.
I’m sure you've guessed by now, since chickens started it all and with a last name like Mash that’s how we became Chickenmash Farm.
Star gave us so much milk we started making our own soap. After work my husband and I would stand in the kitchen making soap and practicing new recipes until we got it just right.
We used our handmade soap on ourselves, shared it with family and friends and eventually started selling it to the public in 2003.
Who would have known a few eggs and goats milk would have started such a fun venture.
It’s just as important to us today as it was at the beginning to produce healthy goat milk soap and a natural body care line for the whole family.From the beginning we tried to learn about a healthy lifestyle, by growing our own organic garden with heirloom vegetables and herbs. We fed our goats this way too and still do today. As we learn, we evolve and continually educate ourselves on what’s good for our body and our goats.
Our goats are on a Non-GMO diet and fed pasture and hay that is never sprayed with chemicals. We mix our own herbs to maintain their health. We’re real picky about what goes into our goats and our products! We source non-gmo oils for our handmade soap and body products.
We never use parabens, sodium lauryl/laureth sulfate (SLS) or dyes in our goat milk soap, body care line or hand poured candles.
