In this episode of the Podcast, we interview Rachyl Travis, of Travis Family Farm.
At 9 years old, milking her first goat, Rachyl had no idea that someday she would be running a successful family farm business.
A pet goat given to her at 9 years old soon turned into multiple goats, and when Rachyl wound up with 15 goats in milk, and 15 gallons of milk a day to process, she had to figure out something to do with all of the milk.
Rachyl didn’t want the milk to go to waste.
She enlisted the help of her older sister and together they came up with the first goat milk product: the famous goat milk soap.
In June 2012, Rachyl’s Goat Milk Soap was born after family and friends raved about the soap they received as gifts and asked to buy it!
Now Rachyl sells her product in many stores and farmers markets through out Rhode Island with her mom and sister at her side!
Rachyl shares her story, and the secret to overcoming fear when starting your own farm business.
