Cooking Up Some Soap in the Factory/Kitchen
St. Anthony, ID – A love of handcrafted soap has morphed into a small business for Amy Grows.
With help from her husband, Walt, son, Casey, and a loyal customer base, the Camas Creek Soap Co. has grown to the break-even stage.
“We’re somewhat self-supporting,” she says during a tour of the company’s factory, supply room and show room – also known as her kitchen and laundry room.
Since the company launched two years ago, she’s sold soap from Island Park to New Zealand and from Spain to the Midwest. And her well-organized and professionally displayed product has become a mainstay of area farmers markets and craft fairs.
