Cheyenne Edition AND Woodman Edition!!

The Goat Cheese Lady has now been featured…well, maybe not exactly featured…but, at least talked about in FOUR newspapers!!!! 

OH MY GOSH!

I promise I won’t let it go to my head.

But, just in case you missed it, here is the latest from the Cheyenne Edition and the Woodman Edition:

Or not.

Shoot.  I screwed up.  The website where the article was yesterday does not have the article today. 

And, it came out last week.  I’m a little late on letting you know.

If you know anyone with last week’s paper. (12-10-10)…ASK THEM FOR IT!

You’ll get to see Sophie milking Lucy for her 21st birthday!  Yes, seriously.

And, although I’m definitely not letting it go to my head, I did decide, I should try for 5.

Five newspapers, that is.

So, when I brazenly called the Denver Post and explained to the Pete at the Features desk that I thought they should write about The Goat Cheese Lady…..

…..OK, I didn’t really say that to Pete…I said that the classes have been really popular down here, and I’d like to spread the word to Denver.  She thought it would be a great idea and told me to email a press release to the Dining and Restaurant Editor, Tucker.

Whoa.  Hold the phone.

A press release?

How do I write a press release?  That’s sort of like telling me to go program a computer.  Right. 

Pete kindly told me, “who, what, when, where, and how much” and suggested I also write “the classes have been very popular here in Colorado Springs and I think it would make a great story!”

So here is my first press release:

Tucker, 

Pete at the Features Desk suggested I contact you. 

I am known as The Goat Cheese Lady in Colorado Springs and have been written about in the Gazette by Teresa Farney, Westside Pioneer, Cheyenne Edition and Woodman Edition!  

We raise our own goats on our “hidden” farm on the west side of Colorado Springs and I give classes in making goat cheese.  The most popular class…and the one that has garnered all of the press…is the Goat Cheese Making class where we milk the goats in the morning, use the milk to make Chevre, mozzarella and ricotta, then partake in a delicious farm fresh brunch featuring goat’s milk, goat cheese, goat’s milk yogurt, homemade bread from home ground wheat, homemade fruit preserves, eggs from our chickens, fruit and locally roasted coffee.  The students take home the cheese they make.

The classes have been so popular in Colorado Springs and I would like to spread the word to Denver.  I think it would make a great story!

I offer the classes most weekends and some week days.  The schedule of all classes is posted on my website.

The Goat Cheese Class costs $75 per person and the class size is limited to 4. 

I also give classes on Just Cheese Making (no milking or brunch), Bread Making, Goat’s Milk Soap and Lotion Making, Organic Gardening, and Raising Backyard Chickens. 

Sincerely,  Lindsey Aparicio  www.thegoatcheeselady.wordpress.com 

And, there you have it.  You are the first to know. 

Besides Tucker and the Animal Whisperer. 

Wish me luck.  And if he does write about it in the Denver Post, go ahead and send me a few more milking goats.  I’m gonna need them.  

And, Thanks, everyone, for all of your class attendance, your comments, your email subscriptions, your reading, your laughing, your friendship and your support.

About The Goat Cheese Lady

I am Lindsey. At first I was a city girl. Growing up, the closest thing I had to farm animals were a cat and a cockatiel. In 2009, Herbert (my husband) and I bought our first milk goat and I instantly became an urban farmgirl, attempting to balance city and farm life..before I knew “urban homesteading” was a thing. That’s when we began The Goat Cheese Lady Farm, hence The Goat Cheese Lady blog you’re visiting now. After moving to the country in 2014, I embarked on life as a rural farmgirl. We continued teaching farm and cheesemaking classes, raising more goats and began construction on our cheese creamery. But life had other plans and in 2017, we decided that, due to financial and health issues, we had to close the farm for business. No more classes, no more creamery, a lot less milking. We went back to off farm jobs, I as an Occupational Therapist, Herbert in construction with his business, D&A Home Remodeling. At that point, I made a silent promise to myself that I would corral my entrepreneurial mind and focus on a job for a year. Well, it has been a year and I am back. Not to classes, cheese, soap or lotion, but back to writing. I love it. I’m not sure where it will lead me, but that’s where I’m starting. I’ll continue to write as The Goat Cheese Lady for now, and whatever the future holds, I’ll let you know. Our two boys are 14 and 11 and continue to be louder than my sister and I ever were. We have two dogs, Montaña and Flash, a cat, Jumpy, a flock of chickens and three goats. Yes, we still have Lucy, the goat who helped us start it all and was milked by over 1,000 people. She’s retired but still the boss. Chocolate provides enough milk for our family with some to spare for the dogs. Soccer friends, school friends, coyotes and mice are frequent visitors. There are way too many flies and every so often we see an owl. I’m glad you’re here. Sometimes you’ll laugh out loud, other times you’ll be inspired to appreciate the small things. My hope is that, over your morning cup of coffee or your afternoon work break, you’ll enjoy the antics and inspiration that are my daily life. Lindsey
