About Us

 

Bada Bing Farm was established in early 2007 in the mountains of north central PA. Using an old family recipe, the Sciotti family began making soaps with the milk from their goat herd. The soaps quickly gained popularity at local fairs and festivals. By 2008, the soaps had won first place at the Pennsylvania State Farm Show and national recognition at the American Dairy Goat Association in the Bath Care Products competition. In 2011, the farm had to be sold due to some major health problems on the part of the original owner.

 

Our family first started using goat's milk soap several years ago, when two of our family members were experiencing exzema-like problems. Their skin cleared up so quickly with this a natural soap, we never turned back! In the summer of 2012, we stumbled across a bar of Bada Bing Farm goat's milk soap. It was adorable and it smelled great, too! We called to order more, only to find that the soap was no longer being produced - Bada Bing had gone out of business. It didn't take us long to decide that, with an interest in business and growing interest in all things natural, this might be the perfect opportunity for us. Bada Bing's previous owner agreed and we bought the business. Same name. Same recipe.

 

The goat’s milk comes from a local goat dairy named Wayside Acres in Perry County, PA. Award winning goats from a family owned farm made the right fit for our soaps. We like to think that their beautiful goats help us make beautiful soaps. The soaps are made by hand in our home, small batches at a time. Each bar is from an individual mold. Once poured, it sits in the mold for approximately 24 hours. After being removed from the mold, it then has to cure for 6 weeks before being wrapped and labeled. We initially started with many of the scents the original owner made, but have recently branched out into more essential oil scented soaps.
