This really is a neat location. There is a short video presentation that is more interesting and informative then most. The soap and other products were lovely and they had great offseason deals! It was also nice to see the goats, who appear to be very happy.

Let's start out by saying the soap is very nice which is why I was up set about not getting the special after watching their movie. On the shelf next to the video is a sign that says "watch the video and get our $35 bar of soap for $20... Good deal if you like the soap and want a... More

This is a great stop...especially for families. At the entrance the goats who contribute their milk for soap production (as well as cheese and ice cream) are available for a pat and a photo opportunity. Inside all natural soaps, butters and lip balms are available for sale. The soaps are aromatic, many for specialized purposes and are popular judging by... More

So happy we decided to stop in and check out this shop. The scent when walking in was to die for. Very happy that they had samples to take home and that if I fall in love with my facial bar I can order it online. The best part for me was getting to visit the goats. So friendly and... More

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!
