Bright Arrows Farm began as an idea, a hope, a work of love… Our family is rich in farming history. Bright Arrows Farm now consists of several 6th consecutive generation farmers. As many as four generations ago the family had many “truck farmers” who made their living growing small fruits or vegetables and using their pick-up trucks to haul their produce to a market or train station to sell. This was their lively-hood. In the early 1940’s, Members of this family were among the very first to successfully bring Holstein cattle to Mississippi for their easy upkeep and increased milk production… This was accomplished against all odds.
Dedication, Innovation, and Determination are values that have rung clear and run firm through the generations of our family for over 200 years. With today’s advances in science and accessible information, farming doesn’t have to look like it did 200 years ago.
Dedication, Innovation, Determination.Our passion, however, is to farm with the same values that have been passed from generation to generation in our family. We strive every day to make our future – our family’s and your’s – a future worth having. We long to see health returned; health for our land, our animals, and especially our bodies and the bodies of our future generations!
In 2001 our immediate family moved to a 5 acre lot and were able to realize a life long dream of having a huge garden. That year we were able to eat, can, preserve, and enjoy the tangible and conceptual fruits of our labor. In 2005, 16 chickens joined our homestead and we enjoyed the nutritional benefits of homegrown, free range eggs. As the current generation grew, their interest in farming grew and naturally branched out to include 4-H. They began showing their grandfather’s Angus cattle in 2008. In 2009 we decided that it was finally time to realize another dream: owning dairy goats. We started with two goats. We had the benefit of the wonderful milk! Lactose intolerance was no longer an issue. Goat milk is easier to digest, and having no antibiotic or growth hormone residues layered blessings upon blessings! Now the entire family enjoys the fresh milk, the cheeses, the kefir, the ice cream, and now soap and other body products as well!
Our Bright Arrows Farm body product line began as an interest and truly a necessity for our own family. Many soap allergies, eczema, and horribly cracked skin problems instantly disappeared when we started using our own soap, since our soaps have no preservatives or other harsh chemicals plus the added and tremendous benefits of the raw goat’s milk. Our farm now brings to the market some of the finest fresh soaps, lotions, lip balms, bath teas, and other body products!
In 2013 the oldest daughter of our family, Hannah, was accepted into the intern program of Polyface Farm (featured in Food Inc., Fresh, American Meat).
We started with 16 broilers.That internship encouraged us to begin raising our own meat birds. We started with 16 broilers in 2014. In 2015 we raised and sold 200 of the finest heritage meat birds available. We look forward to 2016 as it offers more opportunity to offer these amazing, clean, all natural, no hormone or antibiotic, 100% pastured, land healing, grass fed heritage meat birds to more people!
Late 2014 brought a grass fed meat rabbit operation to Bright Arrows Farm. Rabbit meat is highly sought after, and hopefully 2016 will bring rabbit meat to our order forms!
In 2015 we raised our first batch of clean pork, as well as sold several of our grass based beef animals! In early 2015 we put our first hoop house into production and were among the first in our area to offer lettuce, cucumbers, and other fresh vegetables! 2016 promises to be bigger, better, and fresher!
Bright Arrows Farm now focuses on providing natural body care products, beyond organic pastured eggs, clean, pastured meats, and organically raised produce! Bringing you the finest cleanest farm fresh products on the market is our joy and pleasure.

Tell Us What You Think!
Why Goat Milk?
Skin is the body’s largest organ. According to US News and World Report July 7, 2011, the skin is an interface between the brain and the world around us. Our skin is an endocrine organ producing hormones and vitamin D for the body. Since our skin is responsible for so much, we should care for our skin to the best of our ability.
Many of the so called “soaps” available for purchase on the shelves of your local “-Mart” are not nourishing for the skin. Most have had the glycerin removed as a by-product to be sold separately. Some are even now labeled as “bath bars” or “face bars” because they are not soap at all, but are actually detergents.
Goat milk naturally contains alpha-hydroxy acids that remove dead skin cells from your skin. This leaves your skin smoother and younger looking. Removing dead skin cells will help many skin conditions by removing irritation. Store bought water-based soaps may use harsh chemical acids to accomplish this, frequently with skin-damaging results.
Goat milk also contains many vitamins. It is high in Vitamins A, B1, B6, B12, and E. Vitamin A helps to repair damaged skin tissue, and maintain the natural elasticity of your skin. Vitamin E is the most effective naturally occurring beauty product. It also has a pronounced anti-aging effect on the skin.
The cream that is present in goat milk boosts the moisturizing quality of our goat milk soaps. Our Goat milk soap will not dry your skin out like many other soaps. This is important because keeping skin naturally moisturized helps keep skin healthy. Our soap is especially beneficial in helping to reduce cracks and bumps on your skin.
Our goat milk soap contains important minerals for the skin that aren’t found in most store-bought soaps. Although the water used in other soaps may contain minerals such as calcium, sodium, or iron (commonly found in tap water), that’s not much help when it comes to your skin.
