FAQ

The Fam Farm is Family owned and operated.  We work hard to ensure that our customers get the very best.  Part of that goal is to do whatever we can to ensure that when you buy any products from us you know the right way to use/take care of it.  

Below are some frequently asked Questions but if we miss something please feel free to ask us before the sale is final, thanks.


Goats Milk Soap

  1. Where do you get your goats milk?

    We own our own miniuture dairy goats.  We milk them regulary, some of it we use for our cereal and baking, the rest we put in our goats milk soap.  We currently milk them by hand on our home made milking stand.

  2. Does the milk in the soap go rancid? Do I have to refrigerate the soap?

    As with many things, eventually the soap will go bad, but we are talking months/years time and not days.  We do not use preservatives of any kind in our soaps, but the process which turns the milk/lye/oils into soap also makes the milk shelf stable and so you don't need to worry about refriderating it (we don't)

  3. What are the ingredients?

    Currently our Goats milk soap is made with Lye, Tallow, Coconut oil, Olive oil, and Goats milk plus any all natural colorants and/or Certified pure Therapeutic Grade Essential oils that we use to scent it which will be stated either in the name or in the product description of the particular bar of soap

Rabbits

  1. what can they eat?

    We currently feed our rabbits Purina Rabbit Chow complete, occasionally we treat them with the Garden recipe but try to limit that to be a special treat while we are holding them or for similar reasons.  

    rabbits can also be fed carrots, celery, but avoid iceburg lettuce because it gives them diahrea.

  2. how do you potty train a rabbit?

  3. Is there anything I can't feed a rabbit?

    Obviously don't feed them anything you know to be poisonus

    I was recently informed that cabbage and celery is not safe for rabbits to eat because the 'strings' get stuck in their intestines and it eventually leads to death

    Wild plants that should defeinitely NOT be fed to rabbits include:  (from the book 'Care for your Rabbits' RSPCA Pet Guide)

    Anemone

    Wild Arum

    Autumn crocus

    inderweed

    Bryony

    Buttercup (harmless if dry)

    Celandine

    Dog mercury

    Elder

    Figwart

    Fool's Parsley

    Foxglove

    Hemlock (very easily confused with hedge parsley)

    Henbane

    Nightshades

    Poppy

    Toadflax

  4. Are Rabbits Rodents?

    Rabbits are not rodents, they are lagomorhs.  Rodents have 4 front teeth and rabbits and hares have one more pair of incisors and chew their food differently than rodents.
