Just outside Texarkana sits a Nubian dairy goat farm in the small town of Maud, Texas. Monica Sartin, owner of Rose of Sharon Acres makes high quality goats milk soap and beauty products.
Sartin began making goat milk soaps in 2006 with only 3 goats, now she has over fifty Nubians, and even some turkeys for giggles.
Rose of Sharon Acres makes products scented only with essential oils. They offer products ranging from lotions and creams to paraben/aluminum free deodorants. Their focus is to promote health and wellness for their family and yours.
The business began when Sartin’s daughter, Amber, wanted to milk goats to raise money to purchase a car. Due to Texas legislation, they weren’t able to sell milk, instead had to get creative with their ample harvest-hence the soaps and lotions.
“We love our goats, lots of hooves to clip every 6 weeks,” she laughed.
Their goats have been purchased from all over the nation, including Florida, Maryland, Indiana, Mississippi, and Missouri.
“I never would have imagined that these animals would have given us so much joy and introduced us to so many wonderful people.”
Sartin feels so passionate about her business because she has personally seen the results of her products.
“We found that our skin was literally transformed as we used these natural products. Our goats’ milk contains a high concentration of butter-fat content, making the product very nourishing.”
Sartin will be at the Open House and Arts Market this week, December 1st and 2nd at the Texarkana Regional Arts and Humanities Center. This is their 5th year to participate.
Friday, December 1st open from 10 AM to 5 PM.
Saturday, December 2nd open from 10 AM to 4 PM
