Our Soapers business will include a line of men’s soap products, including bar soap, liquid soap, and shaving soap.
Our Soapers business will start small and simple, as with the others. When we say that these soaps will be made “from scratch,” we mean it. We will even be producing our own lye.
They will be naturally scent-free, which the hunters among us will enjoy. Of the three businesses, this one is the least capital intensive, and frankly, the least well-defined at this point. We took a course in soapmaking at Tillers International, which by the way, is a real gift to homesteaders and DIYers. Tillers is also an organization that does good; I highly recommend exploring what they have to offer, especially if you live within a few hours of Scotts, MI, which is just southeast of Kalamazoo.
Accommodations are available onsite, so you can stay overnight, as we did for the Blacksmithing I course. In what may be a sign of things to come, John also participated in the Draft Animal Logging course in February 2016.
We will be selling our soaps online soon. Contact us and we will notify you when it is available.
