John and I started life together in 1987 and as a wedding present, we received 2 pregnant goats from a friend. Sarah our daughter decided to enter 4-H with dairy goats and continued until she aged out. John and I continued to supplied milk for a wildlife rescue. Our grandsons Mason and Johnnie entered 4-H in 2007 and 2010 respectively, and developed their own goat herds, Alpines and Nubians, respectively. After I retired from teaching, we developed our business of lotions, soap and fudge to help cover the cost of the goat grain and supplies. Not only did we accomplish this but increased our love of goats and their products. We continue my business today with the help of our grandson Johnnie, (Mason is off at college) and Lucius (our youngest grandson), husband John and tester and sales person, Sarah. With our customers support we continue to grow, and develop more products. We hope that you enjoy our products as much as we do.
We raise our goats and proudly make all of our products on our ranch. We operate a state inspected and certified milk parlor and a state inspected and certified kitchen.
We are always adding more products. Let us know if you have one in mind and we will work on it.
All of our products are homemade with love, from the milking of our goats - down through the selling of our products. We are eager to work with you to find your true love of scents by mixing fragrances and use of oils! Let us serve you.
We do allow people to visit by appointment only. You will be required to sign a waiver, as goats, especially the cutest babies, do jump and all are very interested in people. Please call or email us to set up an appointment.
Finally, in accordance with the by-laws of our Limited Liability Company, Rancho de Animales will not allow our members to give out our products manufacturing processes. The reality of it is, we've spent decades perfecting the right blend of special ingredients, how to properly combined it all for the best results, the cooking temperatures & times and so much more. All of this is considered proprietary information and we simply can't share it. We love what we do and so do all of our wonderful customers. Thank you for your understanding and we hope you love our products too.
John & Jeri Trujillo, Owners
