The Scituate Art Festival

10/5/2017 8:14 PM

If you’re not from Rhode Island, you might not be familiar with the Scituate Art Festival – Scituate, RI’s “claim to fame!” It’s a favorite event of locals and non-locals alike. A little history...

The Scituate Art Festival, now in its 51st year, is held over the Columbus Day weekend – this year, Saturday, October 7th through Monday, October 9th. Nestled in our cozy, rural small town of Scituate, the Art Festival boasts unique varieties of crafts, fine art, sculpture, consumer goods, delicious food vendors, antiques, gifts, and of course, everyone’s favorite goat milk soap, all nestled beneath peak fall foliage beauty. Plus, parking and entry are completely free!

In 1967, the Art Festival was established as a fundraiser to restore the 1830’s era Congregational Church that still stands in our town’s center today. Starting with only twelve vendors, the much-anticipated festival has now grown to feature over two hundred vendors from across North America. The 3-day event still supports the maintenance of the Church building, as well as various local non-profits. (For more information on the Art Festival, visit their official website.)

We “Scituate-ites” believe that Art Festival Weekend is the unofficial start of the holiday shopping season. After all, where else can you find your favorite local vendors all in one place, offering some of their best deals of the year?

You can find us at TWO locations this year – in front of the Country Mutt and beside the Old Congregational Church (across from the elementary school). Plus, score this Art Festival-exclusive shirt FREE with a purchase of $75 or more! Can’t make it to the Art Fest? Don’t sweat it - online orders over $50 ship free!
 
 
As if we didn’t have enough awesome promotions going on – our younger brother Izek is celebrating his 13th birthday this Sunday, October 8thEnjoy 13% off your purchase at www.travisfamilyfarm.com in honor of this sweet boy’s birthday! Happy Birthday, Izek!

This year marks the second anniversary of Jaky and Derek’s wedding, during which they have celebrated their daughter, Daisy’s, first birthday. Two years ago, Jaky was getting dressed while Derek anxiously awaited her arrival. Surrounded by loving friends and family, they got married in the small church of their hometown and shut down the road with bridal party when crossing the street to the “center of town” – a quaint gazebo, to take pictures.

Jaky and Derek originally went to the same school, but Derek moved away to a neighboring town before they had any classes together. Their moms knew each other from a karate class Derek took with Jaky’s brother. Many years later, it was Derek’s sister, Torey, who reached out to Jaky for goat breeding services. Instantly, they became good friends and Torey thought Derek would like Jaky, too. She didn’t realize that less than two years later he would be marrying her!

Derek proposed to Jaky on Christmas Eve in her barn under the guise of having bought her a new animal. Later that year they were married and threw one of the most epic DIY wedding receptions to date.  The theme was farm to table and purchasing the things they could not grow from local farm, vendors, and businesses. 

To watch a reenactment of their love story, check out this YouTube video Jaky’s siblings made as an engagement gift.

Before their first wedding anniversary, Jaky and Derek welcomed their daughter, Daisy. While she may have kept them from going out on their anniversary, she is the best gift they could have asked for!

Help us celebrate their second wedding anniversary by taking 20% off all Rachyl’s Goat Milk Soap products today only!

 

Happy second wedding anniversary, Jaky and Derek!

As summer winds down, the busyness of back to school takes over - even for those without kids! Suddenly there is more traffic and before you know it, the holidays are here! Stress and sleep deprivation (along with poor diets) really take a toll on your mental, emotional, and physical health. Add in the changing weather and you have a recipe for disaster!
 
While we may not have all the answers, we can introduce you to the benefits of lavender: our secret to instant stress relief (and more)!
 
Lavender (the plant, not the color) is from the mint family and has many beneficial properties and uses outside of its look and smell. We use it in essential oil form - a very concentrated form. Anytime you use essential oils you must keep in mind that they need to be appropriately diluted.

Happy 1st Birthday Daisy

8/23/2017 12:23 PM

family vacationOn August 18, we celebrated Daisy's first birthday! The entire family went on a camping trip which coincidentally fell the weekend of her birthday. The past year has gone by so quickly...

 

Daisy was born on the afternoon of August 18, 2016. She weighed 6 pounds and 9 ounces and was 19 inches long. Despite of a high-risk pregnancy and a difficult labor and delivery and having the cord wrapped around her neck, Daisy was absolutely beautiful.  Her father was the first on to hold her, a moment he will never forget.

 

Daisy is the first child for Jaklyn and Derek. Derek was POSITIVE she was going to be a boy. They picked the name Daisy because she would share the first initial with Derek and her middle and last name are very masculine, so Daisy balanced them out. 

 

Jaklyn and Derek can't imagine their lives without her! In the future, Daisy will be joined by siblings - both biological and foster.

 

 

Daisy's favorite soap is Plain Ole Bar (unscented) which is the gentlest and best for baby skin! She loves to "help" in the soap room by climbing the ladder to access higher shelves for "quality control". She also enjoys spending time modeling for Rachyl's Goat Milk Soap products, attending farmers' markets, and playing on the farm. 

 

Join us in wishing Daisy a happy first birthday!  Her favorite soap will be on sale till Friday and there will be FREE shipping on orders over $50.00

Love Like Crazy

That's not how old our parents were when they got married. That's how many years they have been married!
On August 5, 1989 our dad, David, was 22 and our mom, Lillian, was 20 when they were married. Their beautiful ceremony was held in the Luso American Church located in Fall River, MA and was followed by a reception at the now closed West Valley Inn, RI. Their reception had 650 guests - talk about a celebration!
wedding picture
Our mom calls it the "wedding I had dreamed of my whole life". Smiling, she remembers the pastor who officiated the ceremony was from Brazil and didn't speak English. He had ministered to both my parents since they were little. Our grandfather walked our mom down the long aisle of the old, beautiful church and the reception lasted until midnight!
 
Their first night was spent in their apartment and then they left for their honeymoon. First stop: Cooperstown, NY followed by Lake George and then the rest of their time was spent at Kangamangus Inn, NH. 
dave and lily on a date
We asked our mom what advice she would share with soon to be or newly married couples and she said "I believe it starts before saying "I do". Make a list of what you want in a person. Faith and family was important to me. I love God so he had to, also. And I wanted a lot of children and he had to be my best friend. God is so important in a successful marriage. There are a lot of happy times and those are easy times but for those hard times, God was such an important part. Reading the Word and getting guidance from the Bible helped us through the hard times. The quote "a successful marriage takes falling in love many times, with the same person" is so true." She finished with, "go on dates. Go parking. [Ew, mom!] Seek similar interests. Encourage one and other. Laugh at each other and cry with each other." Looking for more advice? She says to listen to Love Like Crazy by Lee Brice. 
bff
Speaking of crazy, in honor of our amazing parents, we are offering a second chance sale! If you missed the first on their actual anniversary, then you're in luck! Today only you can take 28% off your entire purchase (before taxes and shipping).

engagment partyThis past weekend our family celebrated the addition of a new sister! This time it wasn't through fostering or adoption; our oldest brother, Mical, proposed to his longtime girlfriend, Crystal. Planning their engagement party was so fun! We are so excited to officially welcome Crystal to the family!
 Mical and Crystal
If we had to describe Mical as one of our soaps, it would be Way Out Here (sweet fragrance that is subtle but sexy) while Crystal would be Heart & Hive (classic, gentle and sweet as honey). Mical and Crystal share Xena, their pit bull (who of course loves our Doggie Bar!). We look forward to the addition of more babies - sure to be decked out in their Batman finest. doggie bar

Why We Are Saying "Bug Off"

7/12/2017 7:13 AM

No, we aren’t telling you to get out of here!

If you have ever lived or visited New England in the summer, you know all about ticks and mosquitos. Working on a farm we encounter these pesky pests at an even higher rate! While there are many commercial chemical options such as store-bought personal sprays or services which will spray your yard, we prefer to take a more natural route. On top of being annoying, mosquitoes and ticks can carry deadly diseases. Many people are allergic to them as well and can experience pain and irritation for a longer duration of time. It is very important to protect yourself (and your pets)!

We are excited to announce two great products to help you prevent and treat bites:

First, our original, organic Healing Balm. This magical little product can be found here and has numerous uses. One of our favorite uses, especially during this time of year, is it’s soothing and healing properties whether you are covered in mosquito bites or just a nibble here and there. Apply a small amount directly to the bug bite and gently massage it in to alleviate the itch.

But we didn’t stop there! We have developed an all-natural alternative to bug spray: our very own Bug Off! For a limited time, you can purchase this 4 oz spray for just $5 here! Containing simple, pure ingredients and a unique blend of essential oils (citronella, peppermint, and tea tree) this spray will keep the bugs at bay and please your sense of smell. No more sticky residue or chemical odors lingering in the air. Watch the bugs literally stop in their tracks!

Buy now and join us in making Natural the New Normal!

Our American Dream

6/27/2017 8:04 PM

The “American Dream” means something different to everyone.flag

 For our family, it started when our mom, Lillian, became a citizen! Originally from Canada, she came to America with her family and after several years, was officially an American citizen – something she is still excited about to this day!dave and lily

With that start came her drive to work hard and eventually have a family. She met our dad, David, and it was love at first sight. They became inseparable (even though she was young and had a curfew) and were married before she could even drink! They shared the same dream: to raise their four children on a sustainable family farm. They never thought they would share eight children, countless foster children, and be watching their grandchild grow up on the same family farm! Their American Dream came true for them!barn

Daughters, Jaky, Rachyl, and Meysha are now living out their American Dreams as well through Rachyl’s Goat Milk Soap built on the foundation their parents set for them. Working hard together, they are making positive differences in the lives of many new and loyal customers through the trusted, high quality, handcrafted products loving produced from fresh goat milk hand milked daily.three girls

To celebrate this special day, we are offering 10% off all products now through July 4th, arguably the most American holiday of the year! Shop for yourself or someone special, but hurry because just like a good dream, this offer won’t last long!soap and flag
