Charles and Margaret Miller moved back from California in 1994 to reclaim the family farm in Hillsborough, only to find kudzu had beaten them to it. Neighbors suggested using goats to clear the invasive weed, which covered the barn and fields. They bought two goats, and someone gave them three more; later those goats had babies. Today, the kudzu is well under control.
When the neighbors, all dairy farmers, started asking, “What else are your goats good for?” Charlie and Margaret started making Cud-Zu Goat Milk Soap. Handcrafted with essential oils, a special blend of pure vegetable oils, and, of course, whole goat’s milk, these soaps are renowned for their ability to rejuvenate and moisturize. They do not contain any additives, colorants, preservatives, stabilizers, or chemicals. Long-lasting and biodegradable, Cud-zu Goat Milk Soap is available in a variety of scents, with special recipes to address specific skin types.
The soaps were made by hand in Hillsborough until the Millers decided to retire. They sold the business to their long-time friends at Celebrity Dairy and spent a year teaching them soap-making in their new soap room. Cud-zu Soaps are now made at Celebrity Dairy in Siler City.
