Yes, this is the Fat Bottom Farm of "Dirty Jobs" fame. Unfortunately, we no longer make soap (currently...because it's just me! Those little girls grew up and went to college!). I do retain the intellectual property of the soap business..our recipes, labeling, names, etc and may eventually resume soapmaking. There are numerous soap producers capitalizing on our name....but here is the only place where the legacy and proprietary recipes and techniques that made our soaps unique reside. You will not get Fat Bottom Farm soaps anywhere else, and for the foreseeable future, not even here. There are, however, many talented soapmakers with outstanding products...I encourage you to sample their wares!
We were blessed to have been featured on "Dirty Jobs." Mike Rowe is a really good guy who is all about working people. Please consider supporting his foundation "Mike Works."
We are no longer located in Gause, TX. A few years ago I had the chance to purchase a slightly tamer property with a real house...not the old mobile home with holes in the floor that we lived in when we filmed "Dirty Jobs.' Gause was a wonderful area to land for a fresh start and we miss it and the wonderful people around us.
A series of shoulder injuries and a surgery made it impossible for me to lift my soap molds; and as those little girls grew up and became involved in work, college, and let's face it...boys..the schedule of milking was just too much. They needed some freedom to grow, Since sticking to a tightly scheduled routine is not something at which I excell; and my full-time nursing job's schedule was too unpredictable to make milking without relief milkers practical...I dispersed the goats to places where they could live up to their potential. Most of our foundation animals went with the girls' dad and their descendants can be seen at his farm.
We now raise Dorper sheep, assorted free-range poultry, and Thoroughbred horses (hopefully fast ones!). More to follow on these and other adventures.
