– About Stone City Farm, Tenino
“Stone City Farm is a veteran based, family-owned and operated farm set on 14 acres in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Our mission at Stone City Farm is to produce high quality, all natural goat milk soap for people who desire a fresh, unrefined, natural product. Our handcrafted soaps are made in small batches, each containing 100% raw goat milk and a variety of natural oils, butters, and scents, which provide a luxurious bar for bath, body, and more.”

“Talking one day with a friend who had an autoimmune disease got Nece to thinking about the chemicals found in commercial products and how they affect the human body. Soon after that conversation she began experimenting with chemical-free soap.”
“And now, eight years later, her products include 11 types of 5-ounce soap bars ranging from Peppermint Pumice to Luscious Lavender, Lemongrass and Man Bar (for men, but women like it, too). The soaps are not, by the way, for shrinking violets.
They’re handcrafted, instead, for clients who dig luscious-smelling bars with pronounceable ingredients — including, of course, raw goat-milk. And with the Man Bar — which contains sandalwood, peppermint and coffee grounds and is one of Nece’s most popular varieties — clients exfoliate as they wash,” by Paul Dunn, The Chronicle, Centralia.
