Doing What We Love

A wise man once said, do the things that you LOVE and you will never have to work another day in your life! 

We believe this strongly, which is why we spend weekends and free time crafting rich, nourishing products like soaps, body moisturizers, tooth care and soaking minerals for our customers, and our family members.

Personal Life

In 1995, Dr. Nicholson jumped the broom (an African-American Tradition) with Miss Trina (MissTrnia109 on Instagram) whom he met when they both were students at Penn State University. Together they had three wonderful children (affectionately called: Fulani, Sugar, and Nina). Their shared journey has been one of love, family, and community support.


Dr.  Barry and Trina own and operate the largest House-Call visiting doctor service along Alabama's Gulf Coast. They are also farmers and homesteaders, they love to fish and raise cows, goats, hens, and bees. They both enjoy reading, exercising, traveling, and eating.

Dr Barry has a comic book collection that spans a period of almost 50 years. When he’s got time to watch sports, his favorite team, The Pittsburgh Steelers is his number one choice. As for Miss Trina, her team will forever be the Aliquippa Fighting Quips.

Currently, the Nicholsons are in the process of rescuing a 20-acre farm on the JP & Lucy Brooks Estate (An 80-acre trac formerly owned by Dr. Barry’s paternal great-grandparents.)


Sugar Creek Farms is a 10-acre labor of love. Upon completion it will feature a retreat and primitive campsite. Guests will be able to make reservations and visit to reconnect with nature, feed the animals, star-gaze, and attend healing retreats. All amenities will cater to families that are dealing with grief and trauma.


Along with his family, Dr. Barry uses goat’s milk, herbs, flower petals, and other botanicals to handcraft, all-natural bath and body products such as those that are sold on this site.


Dr. Barry has served on the Board of Directors, or in different capacities, for Remembering the Children in the Village (RCV) a nonprofit organization founded by wife Trina in 1999. You can visit and learn how you can shop the RCV Farmer’s Market to sponsor items (like chickens and fences) for the infrastructure and growth of the Farm.


Dr. Nicholson’s story is one of compassion, knowledge, and service—a beacon of hope for those he touches through his medical expertise and caring heart.
