Two Big Milestones

5/15/2018 3:23 PM

  • This week we celebrate two big milestones!
     
    The first is the birthday of our Vóvó (Portuguese for grandmother), Celeste Dos Santos Marques Medina. Born May 25, 1941 to a Pentecostal preacher, she immigrated from Portugal to Canada and then to the USA with her Diplomat husband. While in Portugal, she was a soap supervisor for the Lever Soap Company (you could say this runs in our blood!) and was also a seamstress and had a sewing school.  This skill has carried over to our handmade washcloths which are soft and durable (click here to buy your own). Vóvó's handiwork is also seen while scrolling through our social media profiles on granddaughter Daisy in many of her adorable and handmade dresses. Just a few years ago, Vóvó was proud to become a US citizen!  She owned a business in nearby Cumberland which sold Portuguese jewelry, clothes and homeware.  
     
    In addition to Vóvó's birthday, we are also celebrating our "gotcha" day for our youngest sibling, sister Meysha. Meysha entered foster care when she was just 24 days old and was placed in four homes - including joining our family when she was less then 2 years old as a temporary placement foster sister. As the years passed, she became such a intricate part of our family that we couldn't imagine being one without her! Two years ago, we were blessed to officially adopt Meysha and welcome her as a permanent member of our family!
     
    May is Foster Care Month and Rhode Island has an immense need for foster families: to learn more, please click here. Currently our family has two foster babies and Meysha has adjusted to being a big sister after some time of being "the baby". 
     
    Meysha makes our lip balms and loves working on content for our YouTube channel.  While her favorite animals are cows, she has fish and a goat named Joey. One of her favorite non-farm activities is praising and worshipping at church where she can be found in the front row. She doesn't stop at church: every night she prays before bed and loves the music of Casting Crowns. She's a great reader and chose going to Barnes & Noble for her birthday! Her favorite restaurant is Texas Roadhouse but it doesn't serve her favorite foods: lobster and sushi. 
     
    While she's best known locally for her red hair and spitfire spirit, she's also a true entrepreneur - and is still working on her pool fund. The other members of the family are really hoping she's successful by the time it gets hot this summer! 
     
    This week in honor of Vóvó and Meysha we have TWO DEALS!
     
    First is a FREE washcloth handmade by Vóvó with an online purchase of $35 or more now through Friday, May 25, 2018. Our soap paired with a washcloth makes a great gift; shop our selection now!*
     
    You can also catch Meysha at the Scituate Farmer's Market on Saturday from 9am-12pm. Mention this blog post and get a FREE lip balm handpicked by Meysha herself with any purchase!**
     
    *Offer valid 12:01am 5/15/18 through 11:59pm 5/25/18 on online orders of $35USD or more before tax and shipping. No coupon code needed.  Washcloth will be automatically added. Offer has no cash value, is non-transferable, and is subject to availability. Selection of washcloths is random.

Happy Birthday Kelub

4/23/2018 9:10 AM

This week we are celebrating the birthday of Brother #2: Kelub, our free spirited, long haired, music loving, guitar playing, hardworking hippy. 

Kelub joins dad and brother Mical working construction for their family business. When he's not working, he can be found spending time with his family, fiancée Leesa, daughter Ellie, and stepdaughter Ava. Kelub is closest to sister Jaklyn even when they fight like cats and dogs!

Speaking of dogs, Kelub's dog is a Chocolate Lab appropriately named Hershe. Together they have many adventures as chronicled on social media (have you followed us yet?). Kelub enjoys camping and summer activities such as swimming. 

Kelub helps out around the farm even though he no longer lives at home. While he's missed, having 2 parents, 8 siblings, and all our animals can make things crowded! Kelub is so laid back that not much phases him. 

In honor of Kelub's birthday, use code "CHILL" to save 10% off your order of $25 or more today only!

Family Spotlight : JAKLYN!

4/4/2018 10:06 AM

This week on the farm we celebrate Jaky's birthday!

 Birthday Jaklyn
 
Jaklyn, also known as Jaky, is the second child of eight siblings and the oldest of three daughters. She's married to Derek Randall and they have a daughter, Daisy who is commonly featured on our Instagram and Facebook (if you don't yet follow us, be sure to!). 
 
Since she was born, Jaklyn has loved both kids and animals but not always in that order. One of her favorite childhood Christmas gifts was the year she asked her dad for a real pony - and got one!*
 
Jaky has always been very responsible and a baby whisperer to both humans and animals! With numerous real and foster siblings over the years, Jaky has had no end of practice before becoming a mom herself. Chances are that when you find Jaky, she's hard at work balancing being a wife, mom and business owner. 
 derek jaklyn daisy
Jaky's passion is working behind the scenes caring for our animals. She particularly enjoys assisting and overseeing births. Check out little sister Meysha in training here. Lucky for her, it's kidding season and we have many babies being born. In addition to the animals and their care, she also handles our social media accounts, email correspondence, and oversees packing and shipping. If you are reading it, Jaky wrote it!

Although today is all about Jaky, she is excited to share a gift with YOU today ONLY.  In honor of Daisy becoming a big sister, for every order of $25 or more, we will include a FREE lip balm. That's right - you can celebrate our newest baby announcement with baby-soft lips of your own!

*Please note: we do not endorse pets as gifts. Owning and running a farm is a 24/7 commitment that we take VERY serious. Our animals are considered members of our family and we spare no resources in maintaining the highest level of individual care for them. 
 
Giveaway Details: orders must reach $25.00 USD prior to taxes and shipping. Orders must be placed through our website by 11:59PM EST today 4/11/18. Lip balm flavors will be randomly selected. One lip balm per order. There is no cash value associated with this giveaway.

One for One Giving

3/7/2018 5:54 PM

Four years ago, in March of 2014, The Izzy Family Room on the 5th floor in the Hasbro Children's Hospital opened it's doors. This amazing space offers a location for families to have a sense of normalcy during their child's cancer treatment which can last months. There are weekly yoga classes, comedy shows, haircuts and massages, and family events such as dinner, birthday parties, and movie nights. The greatest offering The Izzy Room provides is the sense of peace families feel upon entering this "home away from home". 
 
Rachyl's Goat Milk was introduced to this amazing foundation through the extensive hospital stays of our brother, Noah, during his childhood. We are proud to donate soap in specially marked packaging to The Izzy Room for patients and their families to use.
 
Join us in donating to this special organization: for EVERY BAR OF SOAP purchased now until March 21, we will donate a bar of soap to The Izzy Room! 
 
Rachyl's Goat Milk soap thanks you in advance on behalf of The Izzy Room, the children, and their families!

The Magic of Tea Tree Oil

11/8/2017 6:50 PM

Have you ever looked at the back of your drug-store skin care products and read the ingredients?  There are thousands of chemicals in these products, many of which are being absorbed right into your skin. Often, these chemicals can cause skin irritations and are not naturally derived.

 

Tea tree oil is used as an antibacterial, antimicrobial, antiseptic, antiviral, and antifungal. Found natively in the tea trees of Australia, tea tree oil has been used by the original inhabitants of this continent as a cure-all medicine since ancient times. “Cure-all” is no exaggeration!

 

Tea tree oil soap can help clear up skin acne and blemishes without the use of harmful chemical based products. Unlike many drug-store acne soaps, tea tree oil does not dry out your skin and has no side effects such as stinging or burning.

 

Tea tree oil is also a great way to subside offensive body odor that is caused by bacteria on skin and clothes. Bathing regularly with tea tree oil soap can help diminish the growth of bacteria that leads to body odor. Our best-selling tea tree oil soap, our “Olde Tyme Remedy” goat milk soap, also has a fresh, clean, natural scent!

 

Tea tree oil is also a natural antiseptic which can help heal cuts and bruises, as well as helping to fight against other serious infections. It’s also proven to be less harsh on wounds than other chemically-based antiseptics.

 

Here at the Travis Family Farm, we are all about natural, wholesome, homemade products. Our skincare remedies do not stop short there either! Sign up for our newsletter to stay in-the-loop about exclusive deals and discounts, and try our Old Tyme Remedy goat milk soap to get the healthy, glowing skin you deserve!
