Alexander Farm and Orchard – Handmade Natural Soaps

Our Story

This year we had a surplus of cucumbers from our backyard garden that we lovingly call Alexander Farm and Orchard. We grow okra, tomatoes, strawberries, blueberries and of course cucumber. We have a few citrus trees and we plant just enough to sustain our family. 

Well, I planted way too many cucumber plants and had a surplus.

So I decided to make soap out of them. My goal was to give them to our clients as thank you gifts. Well, once I posted the picture, orders started coming in!

I’m even pulling my dad out of retirement to help because of the response. 

So our family thanks you for your support! 


Our Soaps

Our soaps are all handmade, hand cut and are free of animal products. They are unscented unless otherwise noted and are great for people with sensitive skin. Because each batch is homemade and ingredient sources vary, variations will happen from batch-to-batch. One batch of Golden Girl Soap may be darker than another because a darker honey was used.

Ingredients you’ll find in our soaps (depending on the soap of course):

Distilled Water, Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Castor Oil, Cocoa Butter, Cucumber Puree, Mint, Honey, Sweet potato, Ground cinnamon, Lemon zest, Coffee, Cocoa Powder, Sodium Hydroxide, Essential Oils

Sarah’s Soap – She is the first and eldest female relative listed in my family tree born in 1765. This Bastille soap is in her honor. Bastille soap is a mixture of olive oil, coconut oil, water, and lye. I also add a bit of honey to this recipe. Perfect for babies and those with sensitive skin.

Taylor-Made Soap – Named after my grandmother, Ira Taylor Price Brown. Affectionately known as Nana Brown, this soap is made of cucumbers and aloe vera from our garden. Nana Brown swore by the healing properties of aloe vera and so this soap is in her honor. 

The Betty Bar – Named after my sweet grandmother Betty. This is my sweet potato and cinnamon soap. Made with sweet potato puree, cocoa butter, and shea butter.

The Golden Girl – Named after my beloved sister Jessica. I infuse olive oil with lemon zest to make this pretty golden bar. Also made with shea butter and honey.


Introducing our hemp, shea butter, green tea, and honey soap named Jamie’s Bar! This soap also includes kaolin clay for an incredible lather. Jamie’s Bar is named after a dear friend, Jamesina Greene. What a fighter she is! Her online presence doesn’t reveal a life lived in chronic pain. She keeps her Facebook audience entertained as she battles constant pain and sarcoidosis. This soap is in her honor and for all those fighting and living through their pain.
