TWIN OAKS FARM
Livestock Guardian Dogs
We did plenty of research before choosing Great Pyrenees to keep our flocks and herd safe. They are fierce protectors of their animal and bird friends in the pasture, but are gentle and smart, too.
We know that when we bring families into the field to meet them, the adults, toddlers, and children are perfectly safe; but beware if you venture in alone. They are (after all) there to keep the animals safe.
If you are looking for a "gentle giant" for your farm or for your home, please
give us a call.

Who We Are
Twin Oaks Farm, LLC is a family-run farm that raises Great Pyrenees puppies and livestock guardian dogs, Miniature Long-Haired Dachshunds, Kinder goats, chickens, ducks, and Guinea fowl. Out of necessity, we have developed and now produce Skin Care Products for both people and animals that help us to deal with the gnats, mosquitoes, and biting flies we encounter at the farm. Find our Bugs Away! locally at special events, on the farm in Spring Hope, NC, in various stores in the area (see below), or order them right on the website. We have expanded our line to include Goats' Milk Soaps, Goats' Milk Lotions, Eczema and Psoriasis remedies, lip balms, and other skin care products. If you are looking for a "Gentle Giant" of a dog, look at our Great Pyrenees puppies. If you need a charming companion that will brighten your days, see our Miniature Dachshund page. If you are looking for a wonderful miniature breed of goat, call us about kids and adults that are available.
We love our animals! They're a part of our family, so we raise them with lots of TLC in a purely natural, chemical-free environment. It's better for them, it's better for us, it's better for the earth, and it's better for you!
In the daily workings on the farm, we met alot of different kinds of
annoying bugs. People and animals alike were being attacked. The
bugs were indiscriminate as to who would be lunch. Our Great Pyrs
were being snacked on by deer flies biting the bridges of their noses
'til they were bloody, the goats had gnats dive bombing their faces,
and we were all wearing weird hats with netting over them to keep the
gnats and the biting flies out of our eyes, noses, and mouths.
We needed help!
As a defensive move, we began researching different natural remedies. The recipes for Bugs Away! were developed through trial and error. They worked for us and for our animals, so we decided to share them with our friends and neighbors. Then they shared them with their friends and we began to share them with people through our friends in Rocky Mt. at the Farmer's Market and Patios in Bloom, in Bailey at the Piggly Wiggly
and in Wlison at P.L. Woodard & Sons. Pricing and product availability will vary from store to store, but you can always look for us and all of our products on the farm, on Saturdays at the Rocky Mt. Farmer's Market and at special events in the area.
A natural off-shoot of having the goats and making Bugs Away! is our
interest in making our own soaps, lotions, and skin care products. We have
enjoyed the opportunity to create unique and wonderful scents for our
goat's milk soaps. We will keep making our unscented Goats' Milk soap
and our customers' favorites, Savannah, Coconut Creme, Sandalwood,
Dune Daisies, Basil Grapefruit, Monkey Fart, Peppermint Patty,
Lavender, Mango, Honey Ginger, and Cranberry soaps as well
as matching scented Goats' Milk Lotions. We are offering an all-natural, beeswax-based lip balm made the old fashioned way and are happy with our customer responses to the newest addition to our Skin Savin' line ----Skin Savin' Shampoo, a Karanja oil-based shampoo developed to combat psoriasis, eczema, and dry, itchy scalp. Look for these new products and all of our products on our Skin Care Products pages.
