    Totes M’Goats, it’s true! A mobile baby goat petting zoo can come to your home or workplace

    Time is running out to book a mobile baby goat petting zoo party featuring one month old Nigerian Dwarf goat kids at the Seattle area location of your choosing. For 90 minutes and weeks afterwards, morale will be lifted and smiles will be wide as you enjoy visiting with and holding these sweet creatures. Farmer Venise will teach you all about the kids and raising goats if you’d like, or you can keep it simple and just lounge with them. If I was back in my old workplace party planning chair, I’d keep it simple and buy a bunch of ice cream bars and send out an email that says…

  • Flowers Crowns and Pregnant Cows: an Ode to Motherhood

    Motherhood- holy cow. I could write 120,000 words on the subject, and I can also sum it up in a sentence: it’s the most beautiful, impossible, challenging and rewarding job/privilege I’ve ever had. It’s a job I’ve always wanted, but I never could have imagined how it would play out. I was an odd adolescent (are you surprised?) and I used to have this fantasy of being a fiercely independent, single mother to a precocious, female toddler and traveling the European continent as a duo, selling my handcrafted chocolates. Yes, it was a fantasy stolen directly from the movie Chocolat, and it is a great example of my younger self’s…

    FarmHer: the Simple Goodness Sisters’ TV debut on RFDTV

  • Cocktail Recipe of the Week: the Seattle Sling, and also introducing our first Spring Launch flavor, Lemon Herb!

    For this week’s garden to glass cocktail recipe, we’re featuring a drink with one of our upcoming Spring launch flavors of Simple Goodness Sisters’ syrups, Lemon Herb. The flavor is the stuff your summer dreams (definitely ours!) are made of. Even better, we’re sharing a non-alcoholic mocktail, or “soft cocktail” version of the drink as well, for everyone who loves garden to glass flavor but isn’t interested in a tipple.  We go to bottle the Lemon Herb syrups this upcoming week (as well as Blueberry Lavender and Berry Sage) and are taking presale orders on all three, as well as our “Garden to Glass” Edible Garden Kits starting April 3rd,…

    Cocktail Video of the Week: the Simple Goodness Sisters’ Jack Rose Cocktail

    The Jack Rose is a pre-prohibition (like, seriously OG) New Jersey classic cocktail we’re re-imagining to be solidly West Coast. It’s a little known drink (and surprisingly has NOTHING to do with our favorites from the Titanic) that will be widely popular with your friends once introduced. It’s fairly sweet but still pretty stiff, so it packs a pretty little punch. Speaking of punch, PUNCH describes the drink as so: According to David Embury’s The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks, the Jack Rose was, during the mid-20thcentury, a pillar of basic cocktail-mixing knowledge. The origin of its name is disputed: some credit it to an early 20th-century hit man called “Bald…

  • Talking Simple Goodness with Seattle Kitchen’s Tom Douglas, Katie O., and Thierry Rauturneau

    The Simple Goodness Sisters got our first brush with celebrity this week, when interviewed by famous and widely acclaimed (James Beard award winners!) Seattle chefs Tom Douglas and Thierry Rauturneau. We were not nervous one tiny bit, and if you believe that, Venise will sell you some ocean front property in Arizona next. What is also true, however, is that the syrups also had their TV debut this week! Read the blog for links to watch and listen.
