Francois Creek Farm

In the small town of Malvern sits a charming little farm that’s home to a few critters. By “few”, we mean over 20 goats! Francois Creek Farms happily keeps these animals to support their shop that offers handmade goat’s milk soaps, sugar scrubs, and lotions. Looking to the future, Francois Creek Farms is invested in offering new products such as farm-to-table milk and cheese from their Nubian goat trip! 

Whether you decide to shop their online store or visit them on the farm, you will be enriched by their scent-sational soap bars and lotions that come in a variety of aromas such as lavender, sandalwood, rosemary mint, and tea tree. Their products also make for great gifts just in time for the holiday season. 

Get ready to treat yourself or a loved one with these wholesome, nourishing, and delicious-smelling handmade soaps and lotions that are fun to use and gentle on your skin.
