Since enrolling in the RI Developmental Disabilities Council’s free Self Employment Business Project, EG’s William and Cher Bailey of Bailey Brook Farm, home to Rhody Fresh Milk, have launched William’s Naturals Hand-Crafted Dairy Soap. Will (pictured above), the 31-year old son to Paul and Cher Bailey, has Down syndrome and developmental disabilities that do not impact his love for labor-intense soap-making business. The soaps (shown at the top) are currently available at Bailey Brook Farm, Fry Farm, and Emma Acres in Exeter, with expansions in the works to be in another store this season.
