Going for the Goat

Mindy Quinn finds fulfillment in making organic goat milk soap

Mindy Quinn, a lifelong animal lover, began taking in homeless dogs on the farm in Saugerties, N.Y., where she lives with her husband. After that came the lambs, the chickens, the pigs and the goats. But animal care is costly — a problem Quinn, a kindergarten teacher, tries to overcome by making and selling organic goat milk soap. Her whole family pitches in to create and sell a product that sustains the environment and supports the whole menagerie.
