More About Our Company

Laura & Naturopathic Dr. Dave live on their urban homestead with their family of goats, turning grass into soap & weeds into remedies. Inspired by family with sensitive skin… our soap was born. Goat’s milk is naturally high in vitamins and minerals: Iron, Magnesium, Potassium, Protein, Zinc, Calcium, Vitamins A, B-6, C, D, E, B-12. Each bar offers more than one full ounce of our farm raised goat milk. On our farm, waste is a resource, so we transform leftover bits (of soap) into laundry soap. We grow many of our own herbs and turn them into medicine for your well-being. Caring about what’s put in and on the body and connecting to our environment through food & medicine.

Look for our hand crafted artisanal goat milk soaps and herbal apothecary Monday – Saturday 9am-6pm at Atherton Mill and Market on South Blvd and Saturday mornings at NoDa Farmers market in Charlotte, NC.

We offer farm tours to the public twice a year and monthly classes at the farm on a varitey of topics from homestead to goats to apothecary. Join our newsletter or follow us to stay informed of tours and other farm classes. The farm gardens modestly produce food, medicinal botanicals and pollinator plants. Over 100 years old, this is one of the last standing Charlotte farmsteads. When not out to pasture, the goats reside in an original 1950s pole barn. With any luck, this will be a bountiful year for the old growth Pecan trees, Pears and Figs. Native to Virginia, Laura and Dr. Dave are thrilled to return East and recognize seemingly foreign flora after 5+ years in the desert southwest.

Dr. Dave is a full time Naturopathic physician. His practice is located in Steele Creek off Shopton Rd W. Dr. Dave regularly hosts classes and lectures on the farm and in the greater Charlotte area on a variety of natural approaches to wellness and medicine making.
