I also am a soapmaker, using our goat milk to make all natural soaps and lotions. I've learned a lot about the importance of "physical contribution" in starting this business. I value "local sustainable manufacturing" in a whole new way now that I do produce more than goats and knowledge. It's helped me become more balanced in my thoughts about our economy and our world. Before my contribution were limited to those who heard/read my ideas. Now it touches those who buy our soaps at local farmers markets and shows, and brings those concepts home for them to live with.
Along with the farm, I edit a dwarf goat magazine, Ruminations, which helps goat owners become better stewards of their livestock and build a tighter community of smallholders in the US and Canada.
