Hi, I’m Shann Nix Jones. Nice to meet you! ; )
I started out in San Francisco as a journalist, radio talk show host and city girl who couldn’t boil an egg. Then I came to Wales, that mythic land of castles, mist and magic. At the age of 41, I fell in love with a Welsh farmer named Rich, and came to live on his beautiful farm by the sea. Life on the farm was quite an adjustment for me, but after a steep learning curve, I came to love it. We bought our first goat in order to help with my son Benji’s bronchial infections. Together Rich and I learned to make a probiotic called kefir, to use up our surplus goats milk.
Then Rich contracted a life-threatening superbug infection and, when the doctors couldn’t help us, I used our kefir to save Rich’s life. I also learned to put the kefir into skincare, which cured Benji’s eczema. Rich and I started our little business Chuckling Goat on the farmhouse kitchen table, offering our handmade kefir and kefir skincare online. Today we have 70 goats, 10 employees and 30,000 happy customers in 28 countries around the world.
You can read more about my adventures on the the farm in my first #1 Amazon best selling book, Secrets from Chuckling Goat: How a Herd of Goats Saved My Family and Created a Business that Became a Natural Health Phenomenon.
My latest book, The Good Skin Solution: Natural Healing for Eczema, Psoriasis, Rosacea and Acne, also became a #1 Amazon best seller within its first week of publication. This book details the science behind how and why kefir and kefir skincare works to resolve skin issues.
I hope that my adventure, and the discoveries I have made along the way, can help you and your family.
