People who are lactose intolerant can use the milk, Larsen said. "It digests in about 25 minutes as opposed to 24 hours.”

Some people may be hesitant to use unpasteurized milk, but Larsen said it is safe to buy raw milk locally.

"I give it to my kids,” she said. "I wouldn’t give it to anyone else if I wouldn’t give it to my kids.”

So, what does goat milk taste like? Pretty much like regular milk. The difference between store-bought milk and the milk sold by Last Laugh is hard to detect.

"It’s creamier,” Larsen said.

Larsen and Jung also sell goat milk soap. The soap is naturally moisturizing, and some people with some forms of dermatitis, such as eczema, find it soothes their symptoms, Larsen said.

"We have people come to the (Enid) farmers market and just rave and show us where the eczema has gone,” Larsen said.
