More Natural Than Amish

This summer our regular Friday evening soap adventures included the Farmer’s Marked in Cranberry, PA located behind the municipal building on Rochester Rd. Each evening the regular vendors included 5 farm families, an organic meat wagon, an egg man and Ashgrove Soaps. Rich, the egg man, and I were the welcoming greeters for the customers. Hails of ” Welcome to the Cranberry Farmer’s Market!”, and “Thanks for coming by” were received with smiles.

Early in the season one of the vendors – a wonderful Amish farmer – came to see our soaps. He remarked that his sister-in-law makes melt and pour soaps. After a few minutes he said with quiet simplicity, “These are more natural than her soaps”. Humm…. more natural than Amish….. doesn’t get better than that!
