Desai Farms of Tewksbury, which featuresa variety of natural fiber high-quality alpaca and organic cotton garments as well as organic skin-care products, offers a“Unique Boutique” holiday shopping experience at its shop at 1012 Califon-Cokesbury Road, Lebanon. In addition to clothing made from alpaca wool, which is said to be warmer than sheep’s wool and cashmere and lighter than both, Desai Farms is known for its Original Ayurvedic goat’s milk soap. Dr. Desai combined the science of Ayurveda with the benefits of aromatherapy to create a moisture-rich nonabrasive soap made from the fat-rich milk of the Nigerian dwarf goat and pure essential oils and herbs, free of additives and preservatives.
Desai Farms, an early proponent of solar energy, generates the majority of its power through 56 solar energy panels and two free-standing barns equipped with solar fans. Since 2007, its green energy practice has reduced carbon dioxide emissions by 620,000 pounds, equivalent to planting 12,000 trees. Donna Desai, proprietor of the boutique, says, “People are always surprised at this hidden gem. The atmosphere is always friendly and cheerful. It is really a lot of fun to visit, and people can visit the animals while they are here.” The shop’s regular hours are Wednesday through Friday, 10am–4pm, and Saturday, 10am–2pm.
