The sun is shining, the days are getting hot... let’s enjoy some summer fun!

Summer is the time for vacations, when families go to the beach or the mountains to take a break from the work-a-day world. Summer is often seen as long, hot, and a time of building tensions due to too much heat. Ironically, it is also often seen as the kind of "siesta of the year" when lazy living and enjoyment are appropriate.

We recognize summer as a time when we wear light clothing, and as a time when the strong rays of the sun give us a nut-brown tan to display to our friends as a sign of distinct achievement. We know it to be the time of year when vegetation reaches its maximum growth, and when many of our cereals, fruits, and truck-garden products reach maturity and supply us with a welcome harvest.

Summer is the warmest season of the year when the sun shines directly on one half of the world. Summer in the Northern Hemisphere begins about June 21st - the date of the summer solstice. It ends about September 23, the date of the autumnal equinox. Crops, trees, and other plants reach their full maturity in summer.

Beginning in May until the middle of November, we again will be participating in our regular season Farmers Markets in the Metro Detroit Area. Just check our calendar for the event closest to you, and stop by to pick up your favorites.

FSW Articles

First up is our Farmington Soap Works Product Guide. In it, you will find out everything you ever wanted to know about our products and ingredients... What kind of oils we use, how "natural" our All Natural soaps are, and why we select the ingredients we use.

We've also left up our cold process soap article. This used to be our "about us" page, and describes how we make our cold process soaps. Did you know that all of our soaps are cured for weeks before they are offered for sale?

Finally, we've posted an article about pH testing, and our campaign to stomp out "zap testing". We expect this to step on some toes, maybe bruise some egos. But honestly - how can anyone seriously consider using your tongue to test for lye content to be a good idea?
