We are now 2 months into being open at Acadiana Mall and it has been an amazing experience thus far. I've complied an awesome team for the store that love being there. We meet new customers and get to visit with a lot of our regulars every day. It is so amazing! We are definitely making a name for ourselves in the community. We hope you all are enjoying our products!
We are also in the process of preparing for the shows coming up in the fall. At the end of September, you can find us at Tinsel and Treasures in Lafayette. Mid October brings us to HollyDays at the River Center in Baton Rouge. Finally, November we will be making the trip back to Biloxi, Mississippi to the Mississippi Coast Coliseum for Ron Meyer's Christmas City. We are in production mode, stocking up on all of your favorite products, so if you have a request, please send them my way and I will see if we can make it happen!
In the midst of it all, we are also getting the boys back in school mode. If you didn't know, we homeschool our boys, so we are starting a new routine since they are with me at the store part of the time. It's been an adjustment for them, but they are starting to get a better routine, and thanks to my mother-in-law, they do have days that they don't have to come to the store if my husband is at work.
In farm news, we added a few new animals to our herd. After a few loses of some of our goats, we ended up buying a couple of new goats and 2 dairy cows. We are anxiously awaiting the birth of a calf from one of our new dairy cows and can't wait to have some fresh cow's milk here on the farm! I look forward to making our own butter, having fresh cream, and milk for the boys to drink. All of the goat milk goes towards our products and we only milk them for a couple of months before drying them up for breeding season. If all of our girls took, we should start seeing new kids in November!
We truly appreciate each and every one of our customers. You are more than just customers to us, you are part of our family and part of our story! Thank you for your continued support!
