Vendor Profile: TLC Farms Nubian Goat Dairy.

Caroline and her goats.

TLC Farms Nubian Dairy Goats is located outside Franklin, Texas on 15 acres of rolling post oak savannah. Our “family” consists of our herd of Nubian dairy goats, plus numerous cats, dogs, chickens, ducks and a pair of donkeys.

When Tom lost his job in 2002, we began making goat milk soap with the creamy milk from our Nubian does, and the business took off in a big way. Today TLC Farms goat milk soaps and lotions can be found in stores in South/Central Texas as well as on our website. We plan to attend the Waco Downtown Farmers Market the first or second Saturday of each month, depending on the weather or prior commitments we might have off the farm.
