Star Popped!

She had two girls today around 5pmish.  More tomorrow after we get our 3 hours and 45 minutes of sleep before we get up to check on and feed everyone.  (One kid is nursing well and is with mom, the other is wrapped up in a towel, lying on the heater in the house and is weak and not eating well.  We fed her with a syringe.  Keep your fingers crossed for her!)

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. They’re cuties! Another thing I have tried is keeping them with Mom if she’s not mean to them even if I have to feed them for her. Makes for future family bonding in the herd. It’s neat to see my 3 generations napping together as adults sometimes, they don’t forget who’s who. Call if you need anything!

    • Good suggestion! Rain (the weak one) is down with mom and sis right now…we’ll feed her down there too, except for maybe at night. We’ll see. First step is to make it through the day =)…and you can bet I’ll call you!


      • Sounds like a plan. Once she gets stronger too you can keep her in a cool or even cold room of the house to make acclimating to outside nights easier. I just like having them inside for the middle of the night feedings then once you can get to 3 times a day they can be out if they strengthen up. Good luck and we’ll keep up hopes she’ll learn to latch on!

    I knew it! My vote was Star too. I feel for the first time mom… I know how it is. Hurry up and come already! 🙂
    Hope the little one gets stronger quickly.

    My vote yesterday was for Star! Hoping the weak one rallies and is able to rejoin Mom and Sis.
