Patchwork Family Farms Lard Bar Soaps

Patchwork Family Farms is composed of 15 independent family hog farmers who raise hogs the traditional way and that tradition results in a very high quality and rich lard. We have partnered with Patchwork to create a line of soaps using lard from their farmer's hogs. When you purchase a Patchwork Lard Soap a portion of the money supports Missouri farm families.
