There are many seasons at Small Acre Farm. May heralds farmers market season. This is our second year attending the Fort Collins Farmers Market on Harmony and Lemay and we are excited to join the Larimer County Farmers Market in Old Town for the first time this year!
How will you find us at the markets? Most days you will find me spinning some kind of fibery goodness on my spinning wheel or answering questions about our soap and fiber products. You could also look for the Small Acre Farm banner. We hope to see you there!

In addition to the goat milk soap we are known for, we’ll be adding some new products through the season. After much testing and great feedback, we’ll be unveiling our goat milk dog shampoo soap, know as the “Pooch Bar”. Many folks had asked for a soap for their dog and we are happy to say that it is ready, just in time for mud season. Come grab a bar or two at the Fort Collins Farmers market or check out our soap store online.
Also new this year is our Farm Laundry Soap and Coconut Oil Stain Sticks. I’ve been using this homemade, natural laundry soap for 6 months now and it is amazing. I’d heard stories about how great the soap (sometimes referred to as laundry butter) and stain sticks were but I was skeptical. I am now an enthusiastic convert. Just this week I put them to the test with my barn coat. This coat was covered in every type of farm goo imaginable. I treated first with the coconut stain stick and then threw it in the washer with a tablespoon of the farm laundry soap. I now have a nearly new (30 years old) barn coat. It looks so nice I think I better sew up the tear on the sleeve. You might not put our farm laundry soap to the same test but you’ll love the results just the same. Quart jars ($10) and Farm Laundry Kits with laundry soap, stain stick and 3 wool dryer balls ($24) will be available mid May at both markets.
