Grace Harbor Farms
By Melissa Miller
The next products I sampled come from
Grace Harbor Farms. This company has an interesting
history: "Grace Harbor Farms is located in the farthest
northwest corner of Washington State. The old farm house has
seen many changes. Built to house the headquarters for an
oyster business in 1903, Grace's family acquired it in the
1940's when her grandfather retired from the mission field
At that time it was a cow dairy. It housed many
enterprises through the years including an electric service
company and a bed & breakfast. Tim and Grace reestablished a
dairy there in 1999 but this time with Sanaan goats to provide
the rich milk for their goat milk soaps and lotions."
The goat-milk soaps offered by Grace Harbor Farms
contain only natural sudsing agents. The lather isnít as
grand, but the products are highly moisturizing. The Goat Milk
Soap Bars ($4 each) made with olive and coconut oils, are gentle and
soothing on the skin. (Iíve read several accounts claiming
success treating acne and eczema with the Lavender Goat Milk
My favorite product in the Grace Harbor line is the
Goat Milk Liquid Soap (8 oz. for $6.95) in Lavender. It has a lotion-like
consistency, derived from its luxurious blend of goat milk
with soy and safflower oils. And I fell in love with the Goat
Milk Cream ($12.95) which transformed my dry, callused, and tired
feet; Iíll never be without this thick, rich treatment.
line also includes shampoo and conditioner, bath salts and lip
balm. The soaps and lotions are available in a variety of
scents, including Freesia, Citrus, Almond, Peppermint,
Vanilla, Plumeria and Raspberry. The Goat Milk Body Lotions
(8 oz. for $10.95)
are light in texture but moisturizing, with all-natural
ingredients including goat milk, jojoba oil, avocado oil,
seaweed and evening primrose oil.
The Liquid Goat Milk Soaps
and Body Lotion are packaged in striking blue plastic pump
bottles with charming labels. If youíre serious about your
products being all-natural, Grace Harbor Farms is for you.
