Latimer Luck Acres Farm
Feel like a kid again, drink goat milk
The Does of Latimer Luck Acres are milked twice a day and we are licensed to sell the milk for pet consumption. Our goat milk is filtered for extra freshness, then poured into milk jugs to be sold, while the rest is frozen to make soap. Milk is available to buy directly from our farm. We welcome anyone who wishes to come out to our farm to purchase milk, see the milking process or just to observe/play with the goats.
Our soap is a cold process soap that is made from our goat milk. We take pride in using the freshest milk to ensure we provide the best product possible.
There are many benefits to using goat milk soap:
1.) Delays signs of skin aging:
Due to its high content of alpha-hydroxy acids such as lactic acid which help remove dead skin cells from the skin's surface. New cells left on the surface, appear smoother and more youthful.
2.) Not a chemical counterfeit:
Commercial soaps are made with water and thus rely on harsh chemical acids to break down dead skin cells. The lasting effect of chemical acids on the skin is more similar to a chemical "burn." Alpha hydroxyl acids found in goat's milk, work with skin instead of breaking it down and aging it further.
3.) Anti-inflammatory properties :
The cream (fat molecules) in Goat's milk reduce skin inflammation and act as a moisturizer, soothing dry and damaged skin.
4.) Loaded with essential nutrients & vitamins:
Goat's milk is packed full of essential nutrients and vitamins like vitamin D, C, B1, B6, B12, and E, that feed the skin and are absorbed into the body.
5.) Treats acne :
Studies now show that goat's milk is effective for treating acne and skin conditions. This is primarily because goat's milk has anti-bacterial properties that delay the growth of microbial organisms that spur the spread of acne.
The Latimer Luck Acres Dairy herd is tested yearly and no animal on this farm has ever tested positive for CAE [Washington State Diagnostic Lab]. LLA has also maintained an Accredited tuberculosis and Certified Brucellosis free status since 1988. The University of Georgia Vet School uses this herd for teaching purposes and issues a health certificate six times a year, for dairy goat shows in Georgia and surrounding states. No animal on the farm has ever had sore mouth or Caseous Lymphadenitis (CL). We have been on the Scrapie program since 2000
Our family has been raising dairy goats for 28 years on our farm in Watkinsville, Georgia. We are heavily involved with dairy goats and my husband and I are officers in the Georgia Dairy Goat Breeders Association. When our farm started in 1988 we had four goats and today we have 45. The goats are milked twice a day by machine. They are free to graze our lush, one acre pasture.
As our farm grew we began wanting to find ways to share what it had to offer with our community so we started selling our milk for pet consumption. We enjoy doing this and are very appreciative of our customers, whether regular or first time. A relatively recent addition to our farm is soap making. My husband and I both have experience working in laboratories, so the soap making process comes naturally, coupled with creating a product that is both enjoyable and beneficial. Four years ago we started by selling our milk and soap at the Oconee Farmer's Market in downtown Watkinsville. This has really allowed us to grow and expand our customer base, whilst continuing to look for new places to sell our product.
We look forward to many more years of sharing our holistic product with our community and beyond.
