Mar/Apr 2018 • 16 never fathomed the journey would cul- minate into a company called Goat Milk Stuff. "This was all very unintentional. I really just started doing the soap for our- selves and the family." P.J. Jonas said. But after participating in a local craft fair, feedback from people suffering with ecze- ma started pouring in. The people began experiencing relief from their symptoms with the goat milk bars, and Goat Milk Stuff's growth never stopped. The com- pany is the "first and only Grade A goat dairy in the state of Indiana," Jonas said. Originally on a three-acre farm in Charlestown, Indiana, Jonas and her fam- ily began searching for a location for their company by creating a list of all the quali- ties they were looking for. Among the items were accessibility for 18-wheelers, high-speed Internet, proximity to shop- ping and good utilities. The family found what it was looking for in a 36-acre ScoĴs- burg farm. The company now has several buildings to stock, create, maintain and supply goat milk and goat milk products that ship across the country. Jonas' office is being remodeled into a cheese-aging space so the company can add to its list of products. The company's incredible success has led it to be featured on such shows as "The Doctors" and "The Hucka- bee Show." Jonas noted that her children will be taking over the company one day, and an important lesson she hopes to im- part is forward thinking and innovation. Living in an area with artists such as Harrison and institutes such as MASPark, the future of Goat Milk Stuff and the en- tire community of ScoĴsburg are sure to be ones of inspiration and innovation. • Living in an area with artists such as Harrison and institutes such as MASPark, the future of the entire community of Scottsburg are sure to be ones of inspiration and innovation.
