These pictures were taken at the Old State Capitol Farmers Market in downtown Springfield Illinois. We didn’t buy any soaps from Afterthought Farm. We did purchase some natural insect repellent. We haven’t given that product a good enough test to give it a thumbs up or down. While we were checking out – the man behind the counter ( maybe Thomas Vavrik ) was explaining the benefits of natural soaps. The discussion also included how time consuming and labor intensive it is to make liquid forms of these soaps.
