Cobble Hill Farm Apothecary

So heres a little something different from us but we have found a local soap maker, and we always support local, that we just had to share.

As hikers we all know skin care is of most importance anytime of the year. After Penny received a great gift of soap from the farm on Christmas, she shared it with me. From the Aroma and moisturizing feel, it made a shower coming off the trail very invigorating. John and Staci make their hand crafted soaps and skin care products from all natural ingredients and make it right on their farm. Support Local.

We found John and Staci Ducharme  at the Saratoga Farmers Market, where they can be found every Sunday from 10 to 2pm otherwise you can order online from them at,

Heres a little more about them from there website. Please do yourself a favor and try them. You will love their products.


It all began with a dream…..

A dream of living in an old farmhouse, growing & raising much of what we ate, and making things from scratch. Learning to can and preserve our homegrown harvest and chasing around after a flock of chickens with attitudes was what we longed for. Homemade bread, warm winter fires, a garden full of goodies, goats, chickens, bees…..all in the dream. {You can read about our simple life on our farm blog, Life At Cobble Hill Farm.}

What we hadn’t realized, was that some of the made-from-scratch products would become a passion for us. In 2013 we realized our passion for making natural, high-quality soap & skincare, and Cobble Hill Farm Apothecary was founded. We made the decision to open our Apothecary after having shared our products for years with family & friends and getting great feedback. What started as a small, online store, quickly became a thriving full-time business.  As our community has slowly grown, it’s amazing to look back over the past 3 years and remember that we used to pack and ship 10 boxes per week.  Now we’re in the hundreds!

We are a small-batch, farm-fresh soap & skincare company handcrafting our artisanal products at the foothills of the Adirondacks in Upstate NY. Our products are 100% handmade from start to finish. They are never {Ever!} tested on animals and are made up of many natural ingredients including locally sourced honey, beeswax and raw goat milk in addition to herbs and botanicals grown right here on our small farm. We know that when you use our products your skin will feel healthy and more moisturized. Our goal is to provide our customers with a safe and affordable alternative to the harmful chemicals used in most skincare and body products. We have strived to develop products that are of high-quality and safe for the whole family to use.

That is our commitment to you.

What We Believe:
Truth in labeling. We believe in being 100% transparent about our ingredients. Our labels show every single thing that goes in to each product.
Carefully sourcing high-quality ingredients. We are always researching our ingredients and the companies we choose to partner with. We try to source locally when possible.
Care to not compromise the nutrient value of our ingredients. We select ingredients that are beneficial to our health and well-being, and we are careful when working with them. For example, we do not overheat oils so as to reduce the nutrient value.
Creating our own products. All of our products are researched and formulated by us and use little to no preservatives.
Never {EVER} testing any products or ingredients on animals.
Making the best quality products on the market.
That laughing every single day is a necessity.

We are a Veteran -Owned company whose products are proudly made in the U.S.

We hope you’ll give them a try!

John & Staci
