About Us
Hello! We are Rod and Michelle Johnson. Homesteaders Cache is our little homestead located near Tee Harbor, where we try to grow and raise as much of our food as we can while both working full time jobs. Since 2007 our main homestead product has been our handmade soaps, made from scratch right in our kitchen. When we have time, we also make yummy jams, artisan bread and huge oatmeal cookies, and sometimes have extra eggs from our backyard hens.
Practices
Soapmaking: We make soap the old fashioned way from scratch, by blending natural ingredients in small batches and pouring into handmade wooden block molds. This process is known as cold-process soapmaking. When ready, the soap is hand cut into bars, put on drying racks and aged for a month. We use a custom blend of 6 oils in our soaps, combine with natural colorants and botanicals and add in just the right amount of fragrance oil or essential oils. Some of our soaps include goat's milk which creates a luxurious lather. All our soaps contain natural glycerin which leaves your skin feeling soft.
