Gretta's Goats

You may know Gretta & Eric of Gretta's Goats from their presence at Elawa Farm during our Garden Market & Holiday Market.  Their farm is nestled on a hilltop prairie - the abundance of wildflowers, prairie grasses, and wildlife provide the inspiration for their natural artisan soap and cheese. Keep an eye out for classes in Cheese Making & Homemade Soap.

This is an introductory, hands-on experience with basic soap making. Each participant will receive a hand made soap mold just like the one that Gretta uses, as well as a bar to take home!
