Hey kids! All orders are up to date and shipped. My apologies for the delay. I’ve been busy making sure my dad is feeling all the love. Prayers are much appreciated for him! 💕 Here’s a picture of us when I was around 2. It’s one of my favorites! Be on the lookout, I’ll be working on a soap inspired by the first man I’ve ever loved. When life hands you lemons, make soap. 💕

This is gearing up to be quite a nice event friends! @wichwaysandwiches will be there serving up meatball paninis and chili using our grass fed beef, @rotundabrewingcompany will be serving up some suds, live music, and shopping some local artisans!! Who remembers the Beer Soap Flights from last fall? They were extremely popular and will make their debut for the season at this event! This year the soaps will be exclusively beers from our local brewery (Rotunda Brewing Company) and we’ll be doing a little ode to my dear friend Bart with one of the soaps- scented with ginger as a nod to his red hair, made with Rotunda’s The Bartley Irish Red Ale and including the @hophedzgear stamp like we did for last years “where’s the haze” soap. Hope to see you there! 💕

What’s a meal that you make that never tastes exactly the same but still tastes amazing every time? For me it’s beef tips with gravy over egg noodles. I don’t have a recipe and i don’t measure. Just a dash of this, a pinch of that, etc. etc. #goldfinchmeadows #grassfedbeef #beefitswhatsfordinner

Be still my tallow soaping heart! Just picked up our cow from the butcher today and picked up the beef fat from our collection of cows. This. This is one of the reasons I love what I do! An entire freezer of fat would have ended up on the cutting room floor. Instead, it’s made in to beautiful skin loving soaps, lotions, balms and candles! Each time you buy from me you’re helping make a difference! #goldfinchmeadows #grassfedbeef #tallowskincare #wastenotwantnot

Oh hey! You haven’t seen my face for a while! 👋 I’m the maker behind all your glorious tallow products! I can’t remember the last time I’ve put makeup on- between soap making and mommin’, it’s just not a priority. Today we’re busting out of our comfort zone- busting out the war paint and all- to help another local small business with filming their commercial! Small businesses supporting small businesses just feels good! 💕 #womensupportingwomen #smallbusinessessupportingsmallbusinesses

We are now taking reservations for the 2023 season! (Link is in our bio!)We’ve been selling out the past few years so don’t wait! We’ve needed to make some changes to our process so PLEASE NOTE- Our pricing no longer includes the butchers fees. They will need to be paid directly to the butcher. We will also no longer be offering 1/8th shares. We will still offer Whole, Half & 1/4’s along with bundle boxes when quantities are available. Still the same wonderful grass fed beef you’re accustomed to, still antibiotic & hormone free, still 100% pasture raised with love! Thank you for supporting your local farms! As we always say- Know Your Farmer, Know Your Food!

It’s #wetsoapwednesday ! Let me introduce you to “Whiskey in the Bar-oh” made with actual whiskey instead of just scented like it (working with alcohols in soap is tricky!) I thought it was only fitting to use Irish whiskey (@jameson_us ) to be exact since I was naming it after an Irish folk song (Whiskey in the Jar). Scented with vanilla & cedarwood and ground coffee and activated charcoal swirled within. The “wood shavings” on top are actually shavings of one of my other bars that are made to look like woodgrain- The Lumberjack. Can’t wait to cut this open tomorrow and get it on the curing racks! #tallowsoap #handcraftedsoap #grassfedtallow

We kinda have a thing for sea turtles. Made this little diddy with some leftover green from my spicy mojito soap to be added to a beach themed gift box. Our love of sea turtles started with a trip to @national_aquarium (second picture) Meeting #calypso the 3-finned sea turtle sent my oldest daughter on a path and passion for marine life and the ocean. She’s currently majoring in Marine Science at @udelaware (Go Blue Hens!). When she decided she wanted a tattoo I said okay, but we’re going together and it has to have meaning. Alas, we left with a matching one of sea turtles that she drew. They signify wisdom, perseverance, and going with the flow.

Spicy Mojito and Beer Me, Matt are cut and on the curing racks! Next up is Activated Charcoal & Lemongrass, Pandora’s Box along with a little story behind it being a sad one to make (a lot of my soaps are inspired by people in my life), and we have a NEW bar in the works- one made with Irish whiskey, we’re calling it “Whiskey in the Bar-oh” #handcraftedsoap #tallowsoap #grassfedtallow

The kids had their last day of school yesterday! Let’s talk summer cooking. I grill all year long like most. But amp it up in the summer months. This is one of my go-to dinners when we’re busy outside and i need something quick to feed the little monsters— our chuck eye steaks and grilled romaine. Chuck eyes aren’t a cut that you hear about very often, but it’s ahhhhmazing. And I OBSESS over grilled romaine- split the romaine heart, give a drizzle of olive oil, salt, pepper, and there’s no such thing as too much garlic. Throw that puppy on the grill face down and let it sit for 3-5 minutes. I eat it as is but you can also then chop it, add some strawberries and almonds with a nice poppyseed dressing if you like. #goldfinchmeadows #grassfedbeef

This week’s flower arrangement is all about the roses. (Complimentary leaf bugs included) and our first little harvest of lavender! Which came just in time for infusing in oils and using as toppers on my soaps. I just ran out from last year! 💕

Happy 19th birthday to the most beautiful girl in all the world. The one who made me a mama. Mackenzie Abigail, I am so stinking proud of the woman you have become! Strong, fierce, gentle, loving, thoughtful, beautiful, brilliant. You have embodied the spirit of work hard, but stay humble. Do no harm, but take no sh*t. You’re a girl after my own heart and I love you to the moon and back times infinity. Happiest of birthdays my love.

SoapScription friends! Your boxes will go out June 15th! This beauty will be exclusive to you! If you remember from the note in your last box, this scent takes me back to my younger days of building a tree fort with my brother in the lilac bush in front of our house. Is there anything better than tree forts, leaf & stick “potions”, and bug catching?! 💕 #tallowsoap #fondmemories

SO looking forward to seeing everyone this Sunday! 4-7pm!
**As a side note** (please don’t kill the messenger) we will NOT have body butters at this event. Sorry sorry sorry!! During the warmer months they just don’t hold up well. They will be available for pick up throughout these warmer months. And I’ll begin shipping and have at local events starting again in September. 😘

Our Story

Once a thoroughbred breeding operation, Goldfinch Meadows has been in Alfred’s family for over 40 years. After the passing of Alfred’s mother, in order to keep the farm in the family and save it from being turned in to chicken houses, Alfred and Jennifer chose to buy the farm and continue the legacy his parent’s started of, above all, being stewards to the land. We use sustainable farming practices such as intensive rotational grazing and only stock as many animals as our land can comfortably handle.

We pride ourselves on raising 100% grass-fed and finished, pasture raised angus beef. Our cows are free of hormones and antibiotics. The only supplements they are given is a topical spray for their own comfort to keep the flies at bay. And we try to minimize that by using a mobile chicken coop and having the chickens follow the cows around the pastures. Chickens love bugs and fly larvae!

We are proud to continue the legacy Alfred’s parent’s started of having a love for the family farm, and our hope is that our children will want to continue it as well.

With Covid restrictions starting to loosen up we looked forward to a visit from Ashley and the kids to celebrate her birthday, Rory’s birthday and Mother’s Day. I can’t begin to tell you what a great day it was. Then as an added bonus Ashley gave Denise and I a box you prepared for us with your products.....lip balm, two soaps and soap holder, and a candle (complete with match sticks) in a variety of flavors. What a lovely surprise and so thoughtful. Each unique scent is fantastic. Thank you for putting the gift box together for her and a big thank you to Ashley for such a thoughtful gift. It’s amazing!
