Join us at the small Boulder County dairy goat farm that was the original inspiration for the creation of The Art of Cheese for this hands-on interactive soap and lotion making experience!
We’ll start by meeting our small herd of Nubian and Nigerian Dwarf dairy goats including the newest spring babies. You’ll get to try your hand at milking a dairy goat in our cozy milk house and then we’ll take that milk into our farmhouse kitchen and learn how to pasteurize it.
The fun and education will continue as we learn how to make several types of goat milk soaps from the milk we just got from the goats! We’ll start by making a simple glycerin “melt-and-pour” soap. Then we’ll make a cold-process soap which takes longer and is a little more involved, but the results are worth the effort! At the end you’ll get to make a small bottle of goat milk lotion. You’ll leave with several soap sample bars, the lotion and the recipes and know-how to make these nice spa items at home.
