Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! For voting for the classes you’d like to see here at the farm! The winner was a class on Raising Backyard Chickens…we’re working on planning that already! There was a tie for second place: Canning and Preserving and How to Make Hard Cheeses. Classes on Canning and Preserving will start mid to late summer when the harvest comes in. A class How to Make Hard Cheeses will start spring or early summer!Third place was a Homesteading Class! And, the good news is…we already have two Homesteading classes scheduled on Sunday, January 16, 2011 and Monday, January 17, 2011! In this class you will milk the goats with me in the morning and the evening, make 3 types of cheeses, make soap, make bread and pizza crust, learn about raising chickens, begin planning your garden, begin planning your compost pile and partake in a farm fresh lunch and dinner! You will “live” with us for a day and experience what life can be like living as naturally and self-sufficiently as possible! Take a look at the schedule of classes.
Fourth place was Organic Gardening, and within a couple of days I’ll let you in on the AWESOME plans for that class!! So, keep your eyes peeled…(What does that really mean anyway? If you really picture that, it’s actually pretty gross.)
Summer Work on The Farm Camp for Kids pulled up fifth place…at a class a couple of weeks ago, we had a mom who thought it would be a good idea for her kids, so I’ll keep it in mind and let you know if we decide to do it!
Here are the actual results…..
Raising Backyard Chickens 28%
Canning And Preserving 21%
How To Make Hard Cheeses 21%
Organic Gardening 9%
Summer Work On The Farm Camp For Kids 2%
I look forward to seeing you at a class soon, or the hearing from you, or to seeing you again at a class soon, or to seeing you on Facebook (look for Lindsey Aparicio), or to seeing you in the grocery store, or to seeing you in the milking room, or, or, or,
Have a Great Monday!!!
