We stumbled upon this place as we were meandering through PEI. We were invited to video the 12 minute video about the company, and after that, were convinced to give the soap and creams a try! I have arthritis, and tried the pain relief cream on my paining hands, and I have to say it seemed to ease the pain... More

We visited in May 2014. Watched a 15 minute video about soaps and soapmaking. A bit of a sales pitch, perhaps, but also thought provoking and interesting. Shop had a lot of samples and a wide variety of products. They had samplers for the creams and a sink with soaps to try too. They also had work by a local... More

Horrible Service By Store Manager! Product Caused Major Problem And She Didn't Apologize Or Try To Make Up For It. Love The Goats But I Will Never Go Back Again.

Goats' milk soap is known for being good for psoriasis and eczema. I went to their shop in 2011 and 2012 and I love their soaps (especially Lavender, Green Apple). I love PEI and also like to shop local and small businesses with the best natural, healthy products. In 2012, they didn't have as much product available as they did... More

A wonderful stop on our trip to PEI. A cute little shop with many fine products. Enjoyed the informative video on commercial products. A stop on the way into the shop to visit the goats is a must. Products can also be ordered online which is a huge plus!

I have been to this shop many times over the years, whenever we visit P.E.I. I love their products, mostly buying soaps. You can stop on the way into the shop and visit all the goats, including the year's new kids. The soaps are lovely, having several wonderful scents (they also have non-scented) and last a long time. They carry... More

Great place to stop on the Island. Fun to visit with the goats and chickens in their pens. I bought a soap facial muffin and some goat milk cream. Great products. Really moisturize the skin. Lots of different scents and ingredients to choose from for any skin need.

We found this soap shop on our way through the middle of PEI. You'll be able to check out the goats in their pens and the shop is completely stocked with all sorts of scented and unscented soaps of every shape and colour. There is a short video you can watch about what goes into most commercially produced soaps and... More

This is a really neat operation. You can feel the passion in the employees with their commitment to producing the finest soaps and products from the goats milk there on the farm. Goats are treated like royalty! Thanks for sharing your passion with our family.

Wonderful friendly people, soaps and lotions are fantastic. Please take the time to watch the short video. It will give you a background of the ownership of the property and the family run business, and what is an what is not really soap I bet you will be surprised.
