Meet the New Owners of Hanley Fold Farm - The Turntine Family!

Anne VALENZA

It is our pleasure to introduce to you the new owners of Hanley Fold Farm handmade goat's milk soap company - Michael and Jessica Turntine.  They have five beautiful children- Gabriella, (age 12), Makayla (age 8), Ephraim (age 6 ), Max (age 4), and Henry (age 1).  Jessica is a registered nurse and we were coworkers at Mercy Hospital from 2007-2015.  She also worked at St. Anthony's in the Mother/Baby Department and was my nurse after both the births of Mary in 2011 and Joan in 2014.  After Joan's birth we gave Jessica a Hanley Fold Farm gift basket as a thank you.  Even though we had known each other since 2007 that was the first time she had tried our soap.  She really liked it.  So, when we posted that the company was for sale Michael and Jessica talked seriously about buying it.  Michael is a CPA with a great background in numbers and is also very creative.  Together they are a dynamic duo.  They are excited to continue the tradition of making high quality handmade goat's milk soaps, lotion bars, and lip balms with some new additions of their own.  We are thrilled that the soap company will be in such capable hands.  We hope that you will support them wholeheartedly so that they can take it to new heights.  You can meet the Turntines at the December 12 winter market tomorrow from 9 to 1030 am at City Gardens School (market runs 9 to 1 pm).  They will also be meeting some of our vendors tomorrow morning including City Greens, Local Harvest, May's Place, and Lehmann House Bed and Breakfast.  We cherish the support that our customers have given us enabling us to grow the company to this point.  Thank you for all the kindness you have shown our family.  

Sincerely,

Vinnie, Anne, Mary, and Joanie Valenza
