From raising chickens, to gardening, running a home office to cooking gourmet meals, Wendy keeps everything moving forward. Andy maintains everything, including the cars, tractor, snow blower and soap factory. We get dirty and clean up all day long.
Since she was a tiny 2 day old chick, Goldie wanted to live in our coop, otherwise known as our house. When Archie, the rooster we intentionally bought, pulled out too many of Goldie's feathers and drew blood on her crest, we thought she wouldn't last the night in the coop with the flock. When they see red, especially blood, they all instinctively turn from sweet chicks into killers. She recuperated in a cage in our mudroom for about 6 weeks. Cleaning up every day after her was a task for the Liquid Soap Refill.
Three years ago, we were faced with a problem. The plastic bottles we were using to package our liquid soap became unavailable and the supply unreliable. In that moment, we realized that we had an opportunity to solve an unmet environmental challenge through the relevant, practical, operational solution of eliminating the need of a plastic bottle. We are now producing and selling a patented natural liquid soap product that is packaged dry. The end user dilutes it and decants the liquid soap into their own dispenser, then composts the package. This leaves water in place, instead of shipping it around the world and requires the end user to reuse their own container. Our customers love that they can participate in the eco friendly aspects of what we are currently calling Instant Liquid Soap. (Just add water.)
