Angela Correll explains that her Plainview Farm business started with a kid named Eileen – a baby goat. Since like potato chips, one goat is not enough, they soon had several and she learned that not only do goats make great pets, but they have also contributed to societies throughout history with their meat and skins, milk and milk products such as cheese, yogurt, butter, fudge, ice cream, and of course soap!
Angela soon decided to research the health benefits of goat milk and its use in soap. Her friend Lea Ann Poynter studied the soap making process and made the first batch of soap in the kitchen. Honing their recipe by studying other soaps, they produced their first successful batch in the fall of 2003.Their line of soaps has now grown to include lotions and other beauty products.
Plainview goat milk soap is created from all natural ingredients. Their goats are hand-milked and their soaps handmade using saponified olive, coconut and palm oil combined with whole goat’s milk, rainwater and essential oils such as lavender, mint, frankincense and myrrh. Goat milk is known for its natural emollients, vitamins and triglycerides that make it a healthy choice for skin.
Plainview Farm products can be found at the Kentucky Soaps & Such, Stanford, KY; and the Kentucky Artisan Center at Berea, Berea, KY.
