This week’s Featured Farmer: Waterford Soaps

2015-06-20 Waterford Soaps 1Waterford Soaps began as a 4-H project for the oldest of the four Scheglowski children.  The family had no idea that soon they would own a small herd of dairy goats, using the excess milk to create handcrafted body care products.  Hand milking their six LaMancha dairy goats twice daily, they use some of the nutrient dense milk to craft soaps and lotions, which are available in over a dozen scents and varieties. The children are an active part in the business and can often be found helping to package product and talking to customers.

Sweet Creek Originals’ Amy Brown

2015-07-04 Sweet Creek Originals' Amy Brown 1Amy Brown uses her basic tools of hammer, saw, torch and solder to hand-form her earrings, bracelets and necklaces of brass, silver, copper, gemstones, and repurposed materials like leather and sari silk. Her pieces have the strength of metal and a natural rustic nature, yet have a fineness and delicacy that comes from Amy’s choice of materials and the techniques she uses to etch and form them.
