We have launched a kickstarter crowdfunding campaign for our business
as opposed to getting individual investors, which we also tried!
We would certainly love it if you would donate (every little bit helps!) and/or share our link with everyone you know that appreciates family farms and small, locally owned businesses and all that they mean to our country.
Thank You!

Balsam Fir

                A creamy soap with a true balsam fragrance. Clean and really refreshing!

French Lavender


Made with our own Hearthside Farm Lavender flowers and true lavender essential oil. Our soap has TRUE lavender~lavandula angustifolia~as opposed to lavandin~a hybrid used in the majority of available lavender scented products. With its genuine aromatheraputic properties, our lavender relaxes as it cleanses.

Hearthside Gardener's Soap

This soap is the homesteader's favourite. Made with locally milled non-GMO cornmeal and ground eggshells from our own Hearthside laying hens, it has an excellent way of scrubbing out that hard~earned dirt at the end of a day in the garden, fields or barn. With  a fresh, lemon scent, it will lift your spirit as it lifts the dirt!

Autumn Spice

We all love this cozy soap. Rustic and traditional with ground cinnamon, cloves and a hint of apple.
It's lather is excellent and its scent is the perfect one to choose during the holidays. Always have some on hand to give as a hostess gift!

Cedar and Sage

Everyone loves the scent of cedar! While this beautiful bar is frequently bought by our customers as a drawer sachet, it is an excellent choice for the bath and is far superior to shaving cream. The addition of dried sage from the Hearthside Herb Garden assures that this soap not only smells wonderful, but has healing properties as well. Sage was held in high regard by the ancients who appreciated it for its many medicinal uses, including its anti-inflammatory action. It is also high in antioxidants, cleanses and purifies. Sage is a regular panacea

Dunkirk Rose


I am sitting in the rose garden at Highgrove with HRH the Prince of Wales and we are discussing the wonderful properties and possibilities of wool. The scent of this creamy bar brings back wonderful memories...
