WASHINGTON — Steele Family Farm is known for their handcrafted goat milk products, but the farm consists of much more.
“Besides our dairy goats who provide the milk for our soaps, we also raise Dexter cattle for beef, pigs for delicious pork, a variety of chickens for eggs, and we have also raised Jumbo Cornish chickens for meat,” said Angie Steele, who owns the company with her husband Todd.
Steele Family Farm is located near Washington, Okla., but most customers purchase goat milk products at shows, farmers markets, local retail shops, or on the company website.
“We started our venture in 2008 when we purchased our vacant land,” Angie Steele said. “It has been a fun and challenging journey so far.”
From there, the Steeles have been focused on the animals, building fence, chicken coops, corrals and a shop. The Steeles also put on events called Farm Kids Camp where students of all ages and abilities are welcome to learn more about farm life.
“When we first started we weren’t sure exactly what our niche was going to be,” Steele said. “Ultimately we decided to start our handmade goat milk soap business. It’s fun, lets us be creative and best of all it makes people happy to use our products.”
Steele Family Farm joined the Made in Oklahoma program this year and has been in operation since April 1, 2014.
