Mike Metsack who is a third generation Ashford resident and his partner Keith Dagnall who grew up in Middletown CT, started raising goats as pets in 2014. As the cost of keeping their herd increased they decided it was time to look into a way to raise money to cover the costs. at the time they were already making goats milk cheeses for family and friends but didn’t want that to be a revenue stream. After much trial and error Keith discovered the perfect recipe for their goats milk soap and in August 2016 Hy-Hope Soap was born! Since then their product line has grown to not only include soap but also “Whole Milk Whole body Lotions” and Lip Balms with more products on the way.
Hy-Hope is a true small batch producer. They even make all of their soap molds so each bar is soap is truly unique.
Hy-Hope products can be purchased on their website and at Hope and Wellness Salon here in Ashford
