Before I knew that much about Autumn Equinox, I’d notice that every year around the same time, lots of the people I was working with seemed to succumb to some bug or another, feel more tired, emotional, or a bit all over the place.

    Award-winning handmade goat’s milk soaps

    The award winning Cyril's Soap Shed came about pretty much by accident. Catherine Shutler gave up her full-time position to raise a family almost ten years ago. 'We were already on the road to self suffiency with our chickens and vegetable gardens, and so we decided to get a goat for milk,' says Catherine. We actually ended up bringing home two goats, Penny and Florence.' A year later, the goats had borne kids and were producing a lot of milk. 'Despite me not taking the kids away from their mum, they were still providing us with over 8 pints a day!' Catherine laughs. […] more
