Ponsford family has it ‘Maid in the Hills’


The 70 goats on the Harms’ farm in rural Ponsford graze in the summer, spring and fall, but go through about one round bale of hay per week on average in the winter.

Rural Ponsford family, Nathan Harms, 17, his mother Trisha, brother Kyle, 13, and father Mitch all work on the goat farm which produces goat-milk based products such as soap and lotion. Photos by Barbie Porter

Maid in the Hills products include lotion, soap, soap wrapped in 100 percent wool, which is like a bar of soap coming with its own anti-bacterial washcloth, and soon the business may offer shampoo and conditioner.
Many farms have several kids, but Trisha and Mitch Harms have had more than 70.
