I’ll be on the RADIO!

This Saturday, January 22, 2011, it is true.  Either turn your radio off…or turn it up!  I’ll be talking.  About what?  I’m not sure.  We’ll see what noises come out of my face.  If they turn out to be audible words, that’ll be even better.

The Gazette writer, Teresa Farney, who wrote an article about me in November, invited me to be ON HER RADIO SHOW!!!  It will be from 12-1 pm (Colorado time)…I do have some nationwide readers, thank you very much…on KVOR am 740

I beg you to listen. 

I’m sure I’ll have some really important things to say.  About cheese.  About snack.  About bread, soap, homesteading, goats, milk, yogurt, gardening, my kids, my husband.  All in ten minutes.

And, yes, I’ll accept any positive vibes you want to send my way.

Good night.

Over and out.

Roger.  10-4.

–  The Goat Cheese Lady.

P.S.  KVOR 740 12-1pm, Saturday.  Be there or be square.

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

  1. I was so happy to catch your radio show, by accident, as I was driving out to the barn.
    My neighbors and I are anxious to get signed up for some classes! We live out in Black Forest on 40 acres and would LOVE to know more on raising goats, making cheese, and more. We raise chickens and turkeys (for eggs and our own consumption), have a big garden, a few horses, dogs and a miniature donkey. You can see more on my blog if you like.
    Our ultimate goal is to be completely self-sufficient and off grid someday, and run a CSA and Farmer’s Market on our property. Can’t wait to meet you!
    Kindest regards,
    Kelly

    I hope you talk about zoning…Where in the world do you live – and still be able to keep goats in Colorado Springs? The Dervase family of “Path to the Future” fame – enjoy much more liberal zoning in Pasadena than we do here. Maybe this zoning for livestock in the city could be an issue next city council meeting??? We can already keep 10 hens (no crowing roosters) here within the city…but how’d you get goats???
    I plan to enroll in your classes in the Spring,Your classes seem to have “caught-on” as there are bee keeping, goat keeping, soap making & other classes on craigslist now.
    Blessed Be

    • Linda, We live on the west side of the Springs and have 1 1/2 acres and no covenants, which is how we can have goats. I didn’t have a chance yesterday to talk about zoning, but it is something I am beginning to be passionate about. People who have the desire to produce their own food should be able to…and how do we do that in neighborhoods that are accustomed to the non-barn smell and non-barn noise? Your suggestion about discussing it a city council meeting is great…I’m not sure where to start? Any suggestions?
