Ed and Jackie Jackson own and operate a 37-acre farm on which they raise goats, pigs and chickens to bring a range of fine products each Friday to the Milton Farmers’ Market.
Jackie mans the tent at the market for Fresh N’ Fancy, where she offers her line of hand-crafted goat milk soap from her seven goats. Goat’s milk soap provides many benefits over commercially manufactured soaps, as it contains the proteins of milk products which kill acne-producing bacteria while keeping skin moisturized and soft. Available in 28 fresh scents including coconut lime, vanilla bean, sandalwood, eucalyptus leaf and gardenia, all Fresh N’ Fancy goat milk soaps are free of alcohol, petroleum or preservatives, and contain naturally-occurring vitamins and other essential elements that help nourish skin. Jackie's website, www.freshnfancy.net, proclaims the soap to be “udderly amazing!”
Ed Jackson can be found at The Pigman tent at Milton Farmers’ Market where he sells premium prize-winning pork. His all-natural pork products come from his own pigs, many of which had been show stock, and all raised without antibiotics or hormones for growth. Look for specialty bacon, chops, Italian sausage and scrapple plus all pork cuts available by the pound. Farmers’ market patrons with a freezer to fill can go “whole hog” by placing full or half-orders for future delivery.
The Jacksons join the many vendors at the Milton Farmers’ Market every Friday from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the corner of Union Street and Magnolia, where there’s always plenty of free parking in the lot or on the street.
