Surrounded by majestic redwoods, Curbstone Valley Farm is nestled in a serene valley in the Santa Cruz Mountains, along California's central coast.
We raise much of our own food on the farm, from organically grown heirloom fruits and vegetables, to fresh eggs from our heirloom poultry, raw honey from the bees in our apiary, and fresh goat's milk from our small, friendly, herd of Nigerian Dwarf goats.
Although much of the milk is turned into cheese, butter, and ice cream, we also use the milk in our handcrafted goat's milk soaps.
We never use powdered, or purchased, milks to make our soaps, nor do we dilute our milk with water. As such, availability is limited, especially in late winter through early summer. Priority for milk always goes to the goat kids born on the farm each spring.
Note that each soap batch is individually hand crafted. Although we strive for consistency, there may be variation in size, color, or fragrance between batches of soap, and no two bars of soap will necessarily be identical. This is your assurance that every soap we make is handcrafted. We do, however, strive to portray our soaps listed in the store as accurately as possible.
Many of our soaps contain beeswax, harvested from our organically raised bees on the farm, and some also contain farm fresh raw honey, herbs, or flowers grown organically on the farm.
We offer three kinds of goat milk soap for sale. An all natural, unscented soap, with extra shea butter, for those with more sensitive skin types.
We also offer soap scented with essential oils, or essential oil blends, for those seeking an all natural, lightly fragranced soap.
The majority of our soaps are scented using fragrance oils. The product page for each soap will state whether that soap is unscented, scented with essential oils, or fragrance oils, to help you find exactly what you are looking for.
