Max and Pumpkin


Max just relaxing in the kitchen with his girlfriend Pumpkin. She’s one of my daughter’s cats who came to live with us in Sweden from NY. When Pumpkin arrived and met  Max for the first time, she was in love. She is by his side whenever she can be. She’s 16 years old.

Good Afternoon from Gullringstorp!


My babies are grown now Tweety and Sylvester are full grown chicken and rooster. Wow, seems like a blink of an eye and they are grown.

Well the good thing is, this breed Swedish Kinda hens love to sit eggs. They will sit anyone’s eggs including duck eggs. They are just mommas 100%. I would love to see Tweety lay her own eggs and sit them. She’s practicing sitting. She’s so cute !

We had a wonderful day at Johanna Marknad yesterday ! We met so many nice people from Sweden, the Netherlands, New Zealand and Germany.

My new soaps were a hit: Rose Petals, Baby Goat and Pet Soap.
Several expectant mothers bought my new Baby a Goat soap made with gentle Chamomile Essential Oil and Calendula infused oil with petals added. A very mild and gentle baby soap.

My biggest thrill if the day was to have a group of teenage young ladies who were so impressed by my Eco-Friendly message in my product ! Yeah for the new generation who will care for our Environment!

I also met a local politician who was impressed with my company story and product. I’ve been asked to be a motivational speaker for the Swedish youth in yet another community .

I visited a vendor close by our table who sold the most delicious jams. Of course I needed to taste all on offer. Just out of this world! Wow! I bought 3 of the 4 varieties offered. The one I passed on was predominately Rhubarb which is not a favorite of mine. Check them out!     www.henstorp.se

It was a very hot day that kept the huge crowds away but that didn’t dampen any spirits!

Thank you to all my new customers!

Good Morning from Gullringstorp!


Yesterday we participated in a market with Li’l Sis Goat Milk Soap. We were to be gone the entire day and because it was a very hot day, we decided our goats should remain indoors. Since we couldn’t be there to hose them down or refill their water buckets throughout the day, they were much better off in the stable. Our stable is wonderful, cool during the summer and warn during the winter months.

Today is just as hot as yesterday but we are home so they will have showers and fresh cold water throughout the day.

They all were very happy to be outside today. Hay in the enclosure was a special treat today. Some decided to wear their treat.

Love to see our goats so delightfully happy!

Good Afternoon From Gullringstorp!


Well it took quite a bit of ingenuity and time, but somehow in the scorching heat we did it! We got ALL the girls, all 19 into the new enclosure.

What a beautiful sight to see them all enjoying the bounties offered in the new area. They are happy with grass galore, cool water and shade from the workshop. My husband fixed the gate so it could be closed behind them. They will spend the better portion of the day in there. We will release them back into the larger enclosure to resume normal activities in the late afternoon.
I am delighted !

A Hot Humid Day at Gullringstorp .


Today is a very hot and humid day. Our goats are doing just what you should on a day like this.

Calling All Cats and Dogs, and Their Owners !!!


LilSis_logo1_Final_2

Li’l Sis Goat Milk Soap has added  3 new soaps to our collection: Baby Goat Soap, Rose Petals  Soap and our own Pet Soap.

Li’l Sis Pet Soap is full of wonderful and Eco-Friendly ingredients. My products have NO chemicals and NO artificial ingredients. There is NEVER any Animal Testing.

My 100 % Natural soap bar has ingredients that will not only moisturize your pets skin and fur, but condition it as well. Goat milk by itself is very nutritious to skin providing all the qualities of the 50+ vitamins and minerals that it contains.

After much research and reading , I have decided on a recipe that will serve many purposes for your pet. Not only will your pet have a clean , soft and shiny coat, but those pesky ticks and fleas will no longer be a problem. An added plus, your pet will smell wonderful.           I only use Natural Essential Oils in all my soaps, including my Pet Soap.

Li’l Sis Goat Milk Soap uses only vet approved Essential Oils in my Pet Soap :

Lavender Essential Oil to calm and relax your pet and to help make  bath time more enjoyable.

Peppermint & Clove Essential Oils to help combat fleas and ticks.

Our dog Max loves his bath time with Li’l Sis Pet Goat Milk Soap.

Max not only enjoyed his bath but his fur was soft, shiny and he smelled wonderful!

I always clean his eyes, ears and little nose after his bath with a soft cotton ball.

The Girl’s New Enclosure


Our girls are a bit slower to understand that they have a new section of their enclosure. Our boys were not so timid when they first saw their extension. This is their 2nd year so they were ready when we opened it up this year.

Once our girls were in the new section, they were curious. Some even started to eat the tall delicious grasses. But when one lady was ready to go back to the familiar , they all ran.

They will soon discover that this new area is not only delicious but fun also with a hillside to climb up.

Gullringstorp Bucks


We have had a few days of rain. So far, the weather is holding and our goats are happy as are our hens.

Our boys made it clear they needed mommy, so after my walk I went in to spend time with them.
