our love of Mother Nature, an appreciation for things natural, handmade, sensual and beautiful; and the passion to create a meaningful life that will inspire others to do the same.
Who are we?
CEO and Milkmaid. Ok, that’s me, so I’m just going to speak in the
first person here. I fell in love with goats during my childhood in the
Appalachian Mountains of Tennessee. Although my first goat (Sprout) only
lived with our family for a short time, I was smitten. While in
Glorieta, NM, I acquired goats and bees, put them together in soap, and
began selling at the Santa Fe Farmers Market in 2005. Now living in Santa Fe, New Mexico, I have my own sweet little herd--and two adorable children.
What makes Milk+Honey so special is that our products feature farm-fresh ingredients from local growers and producers. From left to right: Heather Harrell grows the skin-healing certified organic calendula flowers that we infuse every batch of oil we use in our soaps and lotion bars. Steve Wall of Buckin' Bee Honey provides the honey and beeswax that gives our business its namesake, and keeps your skin luxuriously moisturized. Archie West is the rancher who now owns and tends our beloved herd of nubian goats, bringing us the fresh, creamy goat milk that makes our soaps so soothing and nourishing.
Our most valuable employees! The Nubian goats whose milk makes every bar of Milk+Honey soap feel soft and silky on your skin.
We never have, and never will, test on animals!
producers of our signature ingredients, the inspiration for our
mission, and members of the family, the goats and bees are our most
valuable employees and collaborators.
packaging is an integral part of Milk and Honey's vision. We work to
design packaging that is practical, beautiful, reusable, recyclable,
refillable, regiftable and made with eco-friendly materials. Whew!
