Handmade high quality, small batch, sustainable goods. Specializing in natural soaps that work FOR the health of your skin from our homestead apothecary, handmade Ax restoration/customs and forged goods from the workshop. We also have seasonal gifts.

We run a multi acre homestead in the rural woods, organic garden, raise chickens, dogs and teenagers.. with a whole lot of silliness, dry humor and real life honesty along the way. We love the environment and the wilderness life...

We are the home for the misfits, loud laughers, outside the box thinkers, the unique and the REAL. You won't find forced aesthetic or manipulating marketing here, but you will find humble silly souls getting through it, just like you are. One hairbrained idea after the other...

Thank you for growing with us! and Welcome!


Welcome To

Howling Winds Homestead!











(in cliff's notes)

Two kids from CA meet at age 10&13. Add some water balloon fights, skateboards, one prom, a rock and roll wedding, 3 amazing kids and a cross country move to CT, and here we are! After years of struggle/sacrifice, we bought a few acre homestead in March 2020, and are building our best life together, one amazing success and hilarious mishap at a time.

Kick off your boots and come on in, drinks are in the fridge, goofyness and shenanigans on tap.












 I hear birds, I see green! While we know there is a snowfall or two left for us, we are starting seeds and prepping the greenhouse, and manifesting a hearty growing season; truly hoping we do not get drowned out and flooded with hurricanes again this year. Last season was brutal! I'm sure hilarious content will surface as we forge ahead on our canning journey, as that is new for us. The basement has been prepped for food storage, grow lights and ferments. Our chickens so far have survived and flourished through the winter, and we are also prepping for meat birds this year! We are excited! (I hardly have time to breathe, so I am trying to talk my husband out of goats... and now my daughter wants them... somebody help me...)

March 17 marks 5 years (or is it 6? time is flying!) of soap making that evolved into custom axes and more. We are grateful for you all! Over those years, I have noted the soaps/salves you come back for, the ones that truly help your skin conditions, and what you all want. Moving forward, the offerings will be adjusted to focus only on the products that are in demand; Giving us more time to maintain stock/restock those items quicker, focus on functional content, and our homestead. Those items have served you the best, and are in highest demand. We look forward to continue providing them for you, originals and new variations.

In other news, I (Cass) have been a writer my entire life and have finally begun my publishing journey. (which is like having kids, they warn you, but you are never truly ready for how much work it is) It is by far my greatest passion/skillset, bordering obsession. I have put the link to the author content below if you wish to be entertained by the process and teased with the details. My fiction novels/books (and more) will be available on this website to purchase when they are complete, as well as amazon. We'll see where the journey takes it! Never stop the pursuit of what makes you tick, it is what life is all about! 


 Hope you all have stayed healthy and safe during these continued uncertain and trying times. Keep flowing with the seasons... and thank you for being here.



I post herbal information and mini videos of the ups and downs of our homestead journey on my TikTok, give it a follow (@coolhandcass).
