It is all about the goats!
Udderly Pure is a goats’ milk soap and goat milk product manufacturing business in the sunny Bay of Plenty.
“I’ve been making goats’ milk soap since 2013, and in 2016 I predominately made cheese – I made a lot of cheese which was happily tested by family and friends,” says Jeffie Botha, owner of Udderly Pure.
Officially launched in January of this year, Jeffie has a diverse range of goats’ milk soaps available and working on other skin loving goat milk products soon to be released. While the goats and Jeffie reside in Tauranga, the business is looking for stockists nationwide to sell Udderly Pure products.
“I love creating and formulating recipes for new products,” says Jeffie. “This is challenging and very rewarding at the same time. Creating includes growing botanicals, infusing in oils and then using them in the final product I make.
Natural Products made of pure goat milk are so good for your skin!
“The research I do is in potentially what plants I need to grow or what mixture of oils I need to make to combat a specific problem a client may have. I adore my goats, aka “MyTeam”, as they feed my soul and allow me to be out and about in nature.”
The way the business is set up means Jeffie is very hands-on from hand-milking to making the product right through to beautifully wrapping up the products to send out to customers.
Every small business faces challenges and Udderly Pure has a great opportunity to grow, but there just isn’t enough time in the day. “I work also full-time so it’s a challenge to balance that, family and business time.”
Having her work environment and home environment separate has been a frustration for Jeffie, “I live in a residential area whilst my goats are on a rural property which means lots of wasted time driving to and from the goats. I am looking for that rural property – a little sanctuary to bring our family (humans and goats) together. This will make it easier for me to tend to the girls, milk them, space to grow botanicals and be easily available to my son and partner.”
Believe in yourself and in your products! Follow your heart.
“If I could share some advice to others, it is that you need to believe in yourself and never to give up. We all have bad days, but you get through them and the next day you get back up and it starts all over again. Keep moving forward!”
Although her business is still in its start-up phase, Jeffie has already had a number of successes, “To be selling my product and connecting with people who are new to Udderly Pure is a real buzz. It makes me feel good helping people who have had skin problems and then found relief using our products. Ads value to their lives”
The future is unlimited for Jeffie and her girls (the goats) – the possibilities are endless!”
