June Luxury Soap of the Month is here! Ambiance is a warm, uplifting scent - a gentle combination of sweet orange, rose geranium, and ylang-ylang. The tartness of the orange beautifully balances the sweetness of geranium and ylang. It's lovely! Soft and feminine. We have 40 bars of this fantastic soap - when it's gone, it's gone, so enjoy it while it lasts!'s getting hot and sticky, time to run our annual Body Powder Sale! Body Powders are $3.00 off - now just $8! You choose - a powder with tin and puff, or a 6 oz. refill! Body powders help keep you dry and smellin' fine when the weather gets hot and sticky. Why you should use talc-free powders.

In other farm news: Tornado season has begun! We've had some "interesting" storms the last few days. Everything is fine, it's just the time of year when we can expect fun things like hail, straight line winds, tornado warnings and actual tornadoes (an F2 touched down in southern Iowa last year, causing between $2 and $3 million dollar's damage to a large farm...all humans were okay, but there was significant damage to buildings and, unfortunately, livestock :( )  The good news is, the rain is making our crops grow! The bad news is, the rain is making our weeds grow. Ah, it goes. 

A reminder! Follow us on Twitter, and "fan" us on Facebook!
