Note from Farmer Jim

Post to Twitter

 

Farmer Jim

 

Thank you for taking time to read this. I am Jim Bonham Founder & CEO of Lighthouse Food Farm.

When God called me to start the Lighthouse Food Farm, I chose to spend my life’s saving the last ten (10) years to Help others rather than worry about myself. Maybe that was a bad decision on my part but, if I die tomorrow, I feel that I did the right thing in helping others.

I have been looking for work to help save the farm and for that matter… myself. Jobs are hard to come by these days… especially at my age.

Since I have not been able to get employment, I have started writting eBooks in hopes to make a living and support our non profit farm to help feed the hungry (Lighthouse Food Farm). It is my last hope in supporting the farm and in supporting my wife and myself.

Here is a list of my eBooks I have “For Sale”

Each one has a link to that Specific eBook:

My books are informational that can and will help people in many different ways and entertain them as well.

I need your help in getting the word out about my eBooks. Again, I see this as my last hope in keeping the farm in operation and for that matter, the means of my wife and I surviving this situation.

We also have a new endeavor to support our nonprofit farm. We make handmade soap, you can see our soap here Backwoods Country Soap.

I have always been self efficient in my life but the last couple of years have been really tough. If it wasn’t for the Good Heart of Donors, we would have been shut down way before now. Our donors have come from all over the world, Canada, UK, Australia and from all over the United States of America – just to mention a few. I say “Thank You” for I know that if it wasn’t for you as donors the Lighthouse Food Farm could not have lasted as long as it has.

As far as my personal life – YES!, I could probably sign up for food stamps or maybe even get disability. I am just not that type of person.

WHY won’t I sign up for food stamps or disability? Because I feel that there are more people in our country that could use that HELP more desperately than I could. I couldn’t live with myself if I knew that someone was not getting Help because I was receiving disability or food stamps.

Unless my eBooks sell… I do not see the chance for the farm or my wife and I to survive the situation any longer. Will we live? Yes, of course we will because fortunately I am able to grow some food. Maybe even pick up a odd job here and there, but Helping others has been the better part of our lives for the last eight years of our lives. How do you go from that to being self-centered on just surviving yourself?

Thank you for taking time to read this article, I really appreciate your time.

Sincerely,

Jim Bonham

New Endeavor to Feed the Hungry

Post to Twitter

New Vegan Soap - Harvest Moon

Our New Endeavor to Feed the Hungry

I started making soap as a way to support our nonprofit farm, Lighthouse Food Farm. My goal was to make it a self supporting farm that feeds the hungry without soliciting donations from abroad. With your purchase of our soap, you not only will get a superb skin care product but, you will be helping me feed the hungry. I hope you will consider trying our quality soap and then, become a regular customer.

Try our soap… you won’t go back to the regular soap available on the market today.

Did you know that skin is the human body’s largest organ? Handmade soap is a wonderful way to take care of you skin!

Why, you may ask, should I buy handmade soap when I can get more soap for less money at the grocery store?

Generally, the commercial soaps carried at most stores are full of chemical additives. Additives that not only dry out your skin but can lead to rashes and other irritations. This is not only because of the synthetic additives in the soap but also because most soap companies take the glycerin out of their soap. The commercial soap bars that line most stores’ shelves are actually synthetic detergents. While that’s great for your dishes, it’s not very good for your skin.

Handmade Soap is soap in its true, pure form. It gently cleanses away excess oils and bacteria, but doesn’t strip your skin of its natural oils. All our soaps are made from scratch using the cold process or hot process method of soap making. They are not made from melt & pour soap base that is sold in craft stores – those clear soaps full of brightly colored, fancy shapes may look fun, but they contain lots of undesirable ingredients and are not made from natural ingredients.

I personally designed and made my own molds so, I have an extra half bar out of each batch of soap to personally test each batch made to market. Testing each batch of soap that I make is done to insure we have a superb quality control and that the soap we put on the market for sale is the best quality. I use the half bars from each batch to test our soap by showering from head to toe with it, giving it the ultimate test for quality. Then and Only then do we allow our soap to go on the market.

We use quality raw natural materials to make our soap to insure you get a quality finished product.

We firmly believe that exceptional ingredients result in exceptional soaps. Handmade from beginning to end, the result is a soap so pampering, that once you try ours, we know you will never go back to commercial soaps again.

Handmade soap is a luxurious way to pamper yourself…every day. You’ll want it waiting for you in the shower each day. Handmade soap is very different, it’s a delight to your senses and is refreshing in ways commercial soap can never be.

You can expect our soap to make a rich luscious creamy lather, drenching your skin in moisture. Like many of our customers, you may be able to throw away your lotion for good, never again experiencing dry, itchy skin.

You smell the aroma before you even step in the shower, and it immediately puts you in a better mood. You get the water to just the perfect temperature, step in and grab your favorite bar, rolling it in your hands to make a rich, creamy lather. As you’re smoothing it all over yourself, you suddenly realize that you don’t remember the last time you needed to use lotion, because your skin now feels so soft and silky all of the time. You breathe deeply the fragrance that surrounds you, washing away the stresses of your day, and it makes you smile.

Go ahead, try our Healthy and Luxurious Soap, you will be very pleased with it and will want more. I too am a consumer and I expect quality products for my hard earned money, you will get that from our products.

Is There Lye in Your Soap? Won’t it Harm My Skin?

If you are asking the question: Do you use lye (sodium hydroxide) to make Backwoods Country Soaps?

The answer is . . . of course. No lye . . . No soap! All REAL soap is made with lye (sodium hydroxide mixed with liquid).

Any skin washing product or shampoo made without sodium hydroxide or potassium hydroxide is a detergent, not a soap.

If you are asking the question: Is there lye in a bar of soap from Backwoods Country Soaps?

The answer is “No.” Once the process of saponification is complete, the lye and oil molecules have combined and chemically changed into soap and glycerin. There is no lye present in the finished bars of soap. While all real soap must be made with lye, no lye remains in our finished product after saponification (described below).

Important! Always Read the Ingredient List on the Label Commercial “soap” bars and handmade soap bars are also made with lye even though the words “sodium hydroxide” or “lye” do not appear on the labels. Does your bar of “soap” contain ingredients such as . . .

  • saponified oils: oils and butters are mixed with sodium hydroxide and a liquid (usually water).
  • sodium cocoate: the generic name for the mixture of coconut oil with sodium hydroxide (lye).
  • Sodium palmate: the generic name for the mixture of palm oil with sodium hydroxide (lye).
  • sodium palm kernelate: the generic name for the mixture of palm kernel oil with sodium hydroxide (lye).
  • sodium tallowate: the generic name for the mixture of beef fat (tallow) with sodium hydroxide (lye).
  • sodium olivate: the generic name for the mixture of olive oil with sodium hydroxide (lye).

These words are not usually used to deceive consumers. But soap makers know that consumers are afraid of the word “lye.” At Backwoods Country Soaps, we believe that today’s consumers are pretty savvy and the best practice is to educate.

SUPERFATTING

One special thing to remember . . . all handmade soap is not created equal!

Superfatting is the process of adding extra fats (oils or butters) when formulating a soap recipe, so there is more fat in the mixture than the lye can react with during the chemical reaction.

We use a lot of extra fats (oils or butters) when formulating a soap recipe. Superfatted soaps have superior moisturizing and emollient qualities.

We also add essential oils to some of our soap, see the Skin and Health Benefits of Essential Oils.

In addition to “soap,” glycerin, and water, Backwoods Country Soaps also contain free oils which have been left unchanged by the saponification process and add extra moisturizing properties to our soaps!

Interesting Note About Lye!

Lye has many uses in the food industry. The secret to great pretzels is a lye bath! Lye gives pretzels their characteristic flavor, crispiness, and glossy finish. Hominy is dried corn kernels reconstituted by soaking them in lye water until the germ is removed. Lye may also be used in the preparation of olives and pickles.

Care & Feeding of Natural Handmade Soap

Since our handmade soap is in its pure and natural state, it doesn’t contain any synthetic preservatives or artificial hardeners. It doesn’t need to. With just a little care and feeding, you can prolong the life of your soap and it will serve you very well.

  • Don’t let your soap drown in water.
  • Feed your soap plenty of fresh air between uses.
  • Store your soap on a well drained soap dish.
  • Use a natural wash cloth or loofah to extend its life.
  • Use your fresh new soap within 6 months of purchase.
  • Store unused soap in a dark cool place like a lingerie drawer or linen closet.
