Cold Process Soap Making 101 ~ In time for Mother's Day Gifts!!
You may be intrigued about soap making but you think it sounds so confusing and complicated or you may not even know where to begin!
This is a class to help take the confusion and worry out of it all while you make your own creations. On Saturday We will be discussing the history of soap making, why different oils, butters, fillers and Essential oils versus Fragrance oils are used. This allows you to begin to understand the basics of soap making as we create the initial base together and then each participant will be given a portion of the batch to customize to their liking!

This is a time to play with colors, fillers, and scents without really having to worry about the soap making process but partake as a group in making a base from scratch. 

Sunday we will be making a sugar scrub to compliment your handmade soap and cut the bars to take them home with you. Hopefully we have inspired you to dive into soap making!!! 

Each participant will be taking home 4 bars of soap and 4 sugar scrubs to give away as gifts if they want to! But make sure you keep at least one for yourselves!

Sat March 25th 10:30am ~12:30

Hi Everyone!

I hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful views of the snow! It has been absolutely gorgeous down by our river and on our road! Love Love Love the gifts of nature!

A lot is happening here at Lasting Legacy Farm for 2017! First off is the pre order form for 2017 is all set for you to print and send in with your requests for the year. I am very blessed to have a young couple living here at the farm that will be helping me harvest chickens so will be more consistent in getting them to you on a more timely manner. Below is the link for the form. If you have any problems please let me know!

Pre order Form 2017

This year we are attending The Somersworth Farmers Market that will be on Mondays from 3pm-6pm.  We can bring your chicken farm share to this market if it would be convenient for you or they can be picked up at the farm on Fridays. Emails will go out letting everyone know when they will be ready.

The greenhouse will be starting to have little seedlings starting very soon as we are firing up the heat! So if you need a little warmth stop on by!

I held some classes here at the farm last spring and fall which were well attended and will be doing more this year! Check out our FB page for the Farm ~ Lasting Legacy Farm~

Look for more emails also of specials, announcements, classes etc!

Can’t wait to see all of you this year!

 

Sincerely

 

Wendy

Essential Oils  ~ this is a prerequisite suggested for following classes  

Come explore these highly concentrated plant oils!  Discussion of how they support the mind, body and soul to help you become the best you can be. Points of discussion for thought will be, how can this simplest form of life be so beneficial? How does Aroma Therapy, Aroma Touch, Topical Application, Massage and other applications benefit the mind, body and soul?

How are essential oils made and what are the differences between different companies growing practices. How do you know which ones are right for you and your needs plus so much more, it is endless!

You may want to want to bring a notepad to the class. This will be quick moving , thought provoking and soul searching class!

After discussion you will be making a customized roller ball applicator to meet your individual needs.  

Following Essential Oil classes will be focus workshops looking at a more in-depth  conversation that were talked about in this one! With a project made after each class. 

PREREGISTRATION IS REQUIRED By April 12th!  

SaturdayApril 16th   10 am ~ Noon                              $10

Hi Everyone!

Another month has passed and we are coming closer to spring! With that being said things are starting to line up for the upcoming year. The poultry (being Turkeys, ducks and chickens) are starting to show love signs just in time for Valentine's day! HAhaha. So we will be hatching out eggs shortly so many babies will be coming in about 2 months!

Pork will be ready for sale about end of March and chickens will be ready mid to late May. But I do have a few chickens available that I shrunk wrapped and froze available for sale now.

We will need to have the pre order forms back at the farm by February 18th so as to have baby chickens and other meats here to make sure we have enough.

The greenhouse will be up and running this week and am planning on growing radishes, kale, lettuces, carrots, and beets in it. This is a test to see if I can do it! So if things go well I might have those things for sale!  Cross your fingers!

Also we are planning on breeding Blitz in June so will have Rat Terrier Puppies for sale !  

To keep her girlish figure I am looking at finding some homes or farms that I can bring a couple of dogs to to do some rat / vermin hunting so if you know of anyone that would be interested have them contact me! Blitz would be forever thankful ~

Best
