Go the way of the Goat

Maxwell James CIO

Hey everyone! In case you don't know who I am, my name is Maxwell James and I am the CIO (Chief Inspiration Officer) at Basilwood Farm. I am almost 18 months old and my main job is to play on the farm, inspire new products, and be cute. 

Being the BIG boss here at Basilwood comes with a lot of perks, like my very own parking spot. 

The other perks that come with being the CIO are that I inspire a lot of different products. One of the best products created is the Baby Bum Balm. If my little bum turns red, my Mommy just puts some of this on me and I am all better within a day or two. It also works great on any dry spots I might get and helps heal up my scratches faster. I've even seen Mommy even use it for dry spots too.  

As you can see, it gets a little dirty around the farm, so good soap at bath time is a must. Caeden's Choice is my go-to bar because it is so gentle on my sensitive skin. Mommy uses the Handmade Soft Scrubby with my soap and I am clean in seconds! Which is important for a busy guy like me. 

After a hard day's work I like to kick back, relax, take a bath, and put on some Goat Milk Lotion with Grapefruit scent. I can't get enough of Grapefruit! 

It's a pretty exciting place to work! If you have any little ones, I would highly recommend giving my favorite products a try. It will make you both very happy :)

Say Cheese!

 See these precious people?

The mom and daughter enjoying a day away together?

These are the people we get to meet every time we have a Cheese Class here...

The mother & son (who is driving now?!?!?!?!) coming to their 

second annual Basilwood Cheese Class?

Two families joined together by way of marriage last year who just wanted 

to hang out together for an afternoon...

This is a BIG reason we do this.  

The two friends enjoying a day away together, or the wife whose sweet husband

bought her places for the class five months in advance for a birthday present.

The beloved niece whose Aunt brought her as a relaxing getaway after finals!  

We promised her there would be no quizzes ;-) 

And the trio of three generations... hearts of gold these three.  The precious

lady in the middle was very quiet during the workshop, but when it came time to

leave, she just kept telling me how much she enjoyed herself and giving me

hug after hug.  I just want her to know that it felt like my grandmother was back

with us in those "hug" moments, and I was extremely blessed by her.

Yes, it's fun to learn new things and pass on that knowledge to others,but the real gift is in

the people that come up here to weave the fabric that is Basilwood. We are greatly 

blessed by all of you. Thank you.
