Sarah, one of our milking goats, says "It's Udderly Wonderful!"
Gale, my husband and I run the small farm. We live outside the small town of Cascade Montana. Cascade sits in a basin surrounded by mountains on three side. From our farm we can see the three mountain ranges plus the high country of Millegan. We raise Boer Goats, Targhee sheep, Nubian cross milking goats from which we make our soaps and cremes. Our soaps and cremes we created out of necessity to protect our skin from the dry climate, wearing leather gloves and just doing regular farm work. We are privileged to share our products with you. They are time and work tested. You can contact us at 30 Sunrise Lane, Cascade, MT 59421, call us at 406-468-5337, Manning Farms LLC facebook page or email us at manningfarmsLLC@gmail.com.
“Born out of necessity”
I had no idea when I started to raise goats that I would actually make, develop or sell goat milk soaps and cremes. After years of dry hands, cracking and bleeding, I had tried everything. Lotions, cremes, slathers, you name it.
A friend of mine reminded me that I raised goats, drank goats’ milk and made cheeses. She said, “you should think about making goat milk soap to help your hands.” At first, I scoffed at the idea, then the more I thought about it, I thought, I can do this.
So, the adventure commenced! I experimented with different types of oils, butters, and scents. I quickly realized that not all oils, butters and scents were equal.
Finally, I came upon a soap formula that worked in keeping my hands, feet and body nourished instead of stripping the natural oils away; no more cracked, bloody or sore fingers. The formula included organic oils and organic or free trade essential oils. Often times the organic oils and essential oils are cost prohibitive or unavailable, so I tried the free trade items from several reliable supplier’s websites. I was not disappointed; the results were the same and the quality was equal to the organics I had purchased previously. I always strive to get and use organic oils and essential oils whenever possible.
The soap has helped many people with skin problems. We have many testimonials from people who had severe skin problems who purchased the soap and or cremes. Some of the skin changes were so dramatic that if I haven’t seen it with my own eyes I would not believe the change in their skin and the relief they received.
After selling my soap for several years, and people asking me to make a crème or lotion. I decided to try and develop a formula for a hand and body crème. It was back to the drawing board and back to experimenting with oils, butters, and other ingredients.
Again, I kept working at it until I found the right combination and the right ingredients. I kept at it until my skin was satisfied. Success at last! A light, soft and nourishing crème came out of the mixture and it absorbed so fast and protected my skin so well. I was ecstatic to share it. It too has helped protect people’s hands and helped their skin.
Please don’t read anything medical into this and I’m not calling my products medicinal cures. I’m just saying it has helped people’s skin by returning a natural balance to it. So often soaps and cremes are nothing more than a mixture of chemicals and the chemicals often times do not help our skin, but damages it.
Well as I promised I have two new products: Soothing Foot Crème and Whipped Body Moisturizer. These are also made with Goat’s milk and a couple of new ingredients: Golden Jojoba oil and Sunflower Oil. Each oil adds properties that our skin needs and flourishes with when used.
Kay in Great Falls, Mt: The Soothing Foot Crème makes my feet feel so good and I love that smell. I’ve convinced my husband to use it, and the redness in his feet is gone. Oh did I tell you I love the smell.

I purchased Udderly Wonderful Hand and Body Creme because of dry skin. On a few occasions I have applied the creme to itchy, dry patches on my legs. I have had very nice results in using this product. It softens skin and truly relieves the itchiness. The creme has a refreshing scent, which is not overpowering.
A really nice benefit to this creme is that you need to use only a very little bit to receive excellent results. I have used many other skin care cremes, but this Hand and Body Creme works the best for me. I am a very satisfied customer.
