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.

“Great place, a highlight of our travels”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

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. Enjoyed this shop and was glad we took the time to stop in. Great little lemonade stand next to the shop with delicious lemonade! Have been using the soaps since getting back and the whole family are delighted with the products.

“Magical!!!”

Most amazing place! Our son loves Houdini and visits him every year. The products really work wonders. The Shea butter is the best skin care treatment, and the animals are always happy & clearly adored!!!

“What a Delightful Surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013

As a summer resident of Stanhope PEI (10 km away from this attraction), I have passed by The Great Canadian Soap Company many times. Finally, last year, I went in. It is so much more than soap - though the soap is wonderful. I am now a full convert. I use their Lavender and Rosemary soaps all the time and love the various shea butters and oils. As someone who is sensitive to many skin products, I have been delighted to find I have no problems with any of this company's line. This makes sense, because they are all natural.

And the goats in the pens outside are sweet.

I highly recommend a visit.

“Lovely place to visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2013

My wife and I love this place. We're spending most of this summer on PEI and pop in here whenever we're passing. Usually it's just so I can go and pet the goats and my wife loves the products here, they're of a fantastic quality and are all naturally made with no nasty chemicals so that's good too.

However, it's the goats that are the best thing about it in my opinion.
