Asher Acres: All the Way!!
By: Marisa Postula (Mar 9, 2012)
My family purchased a goat share last season and then picked up two gallons of goat milk every week. Asher Acres is consistently top notch!! The raw goat milk was always fresh and cold. We drank it and also made raw feta cheese with it.
We've also purchased steaks, bushels of tomatoes, soaps, and soy candles from them. All products got rave reviews from my family. I am partial to the "Day at the Spa" scented soy candle and I also like the lavender scent. These candles and soaps are so beautiful, of top quality and nicely packaged that they make wonderful gifts. It has spoiled me from buying the same handmade items from other people!
I appreciate that the family is so friendly and helpful. I've learned so much from them. My children and I attended their farm open house last spring where we sampled smoothies made with raw milk, watched them pour candles, and even rode horses and milked the goats! We don't live on a farm, so it's a learning experience for my children when we visit. My children still talk about watching the chickens grow week by week and the nice, gentle horseback ride they enjoyed.
My children (ages 4,6 and 8) LOVE to visit Asher Acres! They got right in the mix with the animals, especially the cute little chicks and puppies!
Jim, Sandy, and family also breed Labrador retrievers. We have one of their yellow lab puppies whom we have welcomed into our family. They take great care with all the animals (and people too!)
Thank you, Sandy, for the genuine conversations, for teaching me so much and for sharing the bounty of your farm and God's love!!
Asher Acres - The Good Life Farm

My search for raw milk close to Battle Creek ended after finding Asher Acres. Not only did I find delicious high quality raw cows milk, but a wonderful family sharing the fruits of their labor at an incredibly reasonable price. The eggs are always fresh and clean, the milk waiting for me icy cold, in season produce full of flavor, and delightful children happy to help load the car.
They also sell wonderfully fragrant handmade candles and goats milk soap. These products are my gifts of choice for so many occasions. Asher Acres has almost replaced any need for my family to go to a grocery store.
