About Us

Great Pyrenees

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.

 

Mission Statement

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.
