Chestnut Grove Farms   www.chestnutgrovefarms.netc

Our goal is to produce the best grass fed beef, as naturally and humanely aspossibly. We take pride in knowing that our herd is fed the best pasture and hay in the High Country.  We raise registered Scottish Aberdeen Angus  from the Wye genetic line. Our beef is 100% grass fed and raised all natural. Our Angus graze on a mixture of orchard, clover, and timothy grasses.  The herd is given a combination of diatomaceous earth, kelp, minerals, and apple cider vinegar. None of our livestock have had steroids, growth hormones or antibiotics. Our hay fields supply their needs during a typically snowy High Country winter. All cuts are vacuum packaged and USDA inspected.  We have the beef cut and trimmed extra lean. We have beef available year round.  Organic vegetables in season are also offered by Chestnut Grove Farms including spinach, greens, potatoes, summer squash, garlic and winter squash.  When we are not at the market you may contact Keith at 828-773-3716

Soul Shine Soap  facebook.com/SoulshineSoapCo/?fref=ts

I was born in Thunderbolt, Georgia and raised in Miami, Florida. As an Air Force brat, I was given the opportunity to see the world at a young age, which inspired a lifetime of wanderlust. I have a passion for all things natural and a green thumb to match. I  enjoy watching things grow, including my four children and my granddaughter. I have resided in Laurel Bloomery for almost 20 years now where I  maintain various organic herb, vegetable  and flower gardens – a lot of which I  utilize in my products. I have been making soap and concocting salves, lotion and balm`s for over 20 years now.  

 I often barter with friends and neighbors, which allows for locally obtained products that I add to my soap. I collect the water used in my products from a spring that flows directly from the source – the ancient Appalachians. 

I take pride in my products and I  create them with the planet in mind. I  reduce, reuse, and recycle in every way possible and I do my best to be a good steward.
