What's in Store for 2014

In between watching these little guys making their entrance into the world, 2014 has been a sensational year for Ranch Rustics. The web store is up and running, please DO go check it out and any input you might have is surely appreciated. There is a page for customer reviews. It's a little funky because it is more like an interactive chat page, but it's what we have to work with and I would like to thank everyone who has left comments there.

The biggest seller so far this winter, has been Whipped Tallow Body  Butter. This is an amazing product that soaks into your skin and most people claim to love it after the first time they use it. Made with tallow I have rendered from grassfed beef, combined with a couple of other beneficial oils and calendula, which has wonderful healing properties in itself.

Tallow is a perfect base for skin care as its cellular make up is basically the same as our own and goes to work immediately, something vegetable based products cannot compete with. I offer 3 fragrances, Lavender, which has benefits of its own, CoconutLime and Cool Water (men tend to like this one)

Wax tarts have gained a special place in my heart (and home... and nose!). I am now stocking tart warmers in the store because I love having all the benefits of a nice candle without the flame. They work great as nightlights and I personally,  think the scent throw on the wax tarts is stronger than the candles. They are made using clean burning and sustainable soy wax. I currently only have a few fragrances as I am waiting to see how these things sell, but I am having a wonderful time making them. I personally, love the ones I have so far, Simpy Vanilla, Chocolate Brownie, Spiced Cider, Pumpkin Spice, Cranberry Marmalade and MacIntosh Apple. I also have these in 4 and 8oz tins and 8 oz mason jar candles.

I am running a soap sale this week (Feb 24-Feb28, 2014) only. 6 bars for the price of 5 (salt bars not included). Just peruse the store, then email me with your choices. You can either pay through the online store, or I can invoice you through paypal, or if you prefer, you can mail a check. There are 2 pages of soaps online so there are many to choose from.

Another new item in the lineup is laundry soap. For those wanting to try it out, we sell a small sample size, enough to do about 10 loads.

I've recently added lip balm to the store, as it has gotten really good review from my trial testers. At this time there is only chocolate to choose from, and will possibly expand the choices in the next month or so.

Thank you for stopping by the blog, and I hope to hear from you soon.

I love everything I have. I recently passed along the sample of lemongrass soap that was in my order to my daughter. Her first question was does it come in a candle. The second question was what is the website. And she actually wrote it down. Love your products and your blots.

About Me
Kids are raised, we are ranchhands on a 250,000 acre working cattle ranch 110 miles from the nearest small town, so we raise a lot of our own food, vegetables, fruits, milk,eggs and meat. Love riding and working cattle, but find myself spending a lot more time in the kitchen, and the garden. forpeteysake.blogspot.com http://throughthedarkestvalleys.blogspot.com/
My favorite things to cook
Having 2 Jersey cows as well as milk goats, playing with fresh milk is a hobby, making our own butter, yogurt, sour cream, cheeses, soap and all the other great stuff you can do with fresh raw milk.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Homemade from scratch...anything! All traditions are sort of gone by the wayside, as we live so far from family now
My cooking triumphs
Most things from this site, this has been the best thing the internet has had to offer!
My cooking tragedies
A layered Jello dessert...the middle layer never set, so it did the 'ooze-wiggle'...and...well..I liquified a couple of chickens on 2 different occasions, turning them into a black gel. Moral of that story is, don't start cooking then go clean barns!...and there was the time that my kids were helping me make Thanksgiving dinner and SOMEbody (who resembled my youngest son) forgot to put the sugar in the pie!!!
