One day, Salena went to buy chickens but came back with chickens and a goat. Unbeknownst to her, this would be the start of her business, Tristegus. She soon found out that goats cannot be by themselves. So, it wasn’t long before she had a small herd of her own. And when she found herself with excess milk, she decided to put her creativity to work and start making goat milk products.
Salena started making goat milk products like lotions, shampoos, and soaps for her family. When a local farmer’s market opened, she saw an opportunity to test her products with the public. Seven years later, Tristegus is still going strong, thanks to Salena’s dedication and the support of her customers.
The business thrived during the COVID pandemic due to Salena’s active online presence. Her products can be found in various places, and she continues to grow her business by making safe products!
