Tasha’s Own is a family owned and operated venture of love and commitment to reviving the lost arts. Not only do we strive to farm in a sustainable manner, we are committed to utilizing time-honored “old fashioned” methods as well. These methods both enhance the lives of our animals and maintain our connection to the earth. By offering and promoting our products and educational ventures nationwide, we are supporting and encouraging other small farms. It is our belief that small farms are the backbone of our culture and our country; producing healthier food, creating superior products and fostering healthy economies and communities
What makes us different...
As the mother of 8 children, ages 16-34, Maureen has always been in the business of creating sustainable alternatives and making mindful choices.
Tasha's Own began with one goat, Tasha, who was purchased to provide alternative dairy products for her lactose intolerant child. Maureen soon discovered that one goat quickly led to another and after a time there was an abundance of milk beyond what she needed to make cheeses and yogurts. And thus a superior soap was born.
Over the course of 15 years, and through many goat generations (all descendants of the original Tasha) this small soap company found it's way into nearly every farm stand, gift shop, garden center and health food store in Hampton Roads. Now relocated to historic Williamsburg, Virginia, Tasha's Own and its new line of specialty body care, Beauly Organics, are continuing to meet skincare needs in Virginia and beyond.
Maureen feels that not only is it important to create a quality product that is beautiful and practical, but that her heart and soul remain visible in every detail of each product. Her preference for Nubian goat's milk, wildcrafted botanical combinations, calico and toile wrappings inspired by the clothes she handmade for herself and her children and coffee stained labels are just a few things that set her apart from her competitors. Her farmhouse sense of style, relentless hard work, ready smile and warm greeting are what seal the deal.
If you want to support a REAL LIFE, sustainably produced FARM product that is pure and full of rich history and wisdom, you've come to the right place...
