Hi! We’re Bernie and Ellen Caruso. We live on our North Carolina farm with our teenager Christi, and our grown son and neighbors Jimmy, and his wife Jenny. Former city folks, when we moved here we went hog-wild (pun intended) with farm animals. Over the years these included horses, cows, a donkey, pigs, sheep, ducks, quail, geese, chickens, rabbits, guinea fowl, dogs, cats, and of course, goats! Quite a change for Bernie and Ellen, whose biggest pets growing up were cats, white mice, and goldfish! We’re loving the country, and feeling really blessed to live here.
Bernie, a degreed chemist, formulates our products, and everyone helps make and sell them. Jimmy, the personable young man with the striking blue eyes, manages our stand at the Piedmont Triad Farmers Market and is the creative hand behind our attractive soap bars.
