New Stuff For Sale!

UPDATE:  Technical Difficulties With Images Below…I Am In The Process of Fixing Them.  Sorry!

Every time, when I was little, that we went to the mountains to ski, we’d look for the “Stuff for Sale” sign.  It was in the yard of a run down cabin set right next to Highway 24.  Not too unusual, except for a few things:

1.  The cabin was really run down.

2.  The “Stuff for Sale” was painted on the door of an old, 50’s style curved refrigerator.  Except there was no refrigerator.  Just the door.

3.  The Stuff that was for Sale had been for Sale for going on about 15 years or so.  There were weeds growing up through the Stuff and most of the Stuff was rusted.

The cabin’s still there, but the Stuff must have finally sold, or been taken to the dump, or been covered up by dirt, because sometime in the late 90’s, it disappeared.  Along with, unfortunately, the sign.

But, in memory of it, here’s our Stuff for Sale:

 1.  Rain.  Born 2-24-11.   Nubian.  Both parents are registered.  Dam (mom) is a first time mom and had twins.  Rain’s sister already sold.  Rain has a teat abnormality (4 teats), comes from good milking lines and should be a good milker.   $100.

2.  Flash.  Born 3-19-11.  Nubian Alpine cross buck.  Sire is registered or is registerable, I’m not sure which.  $50.

3.  Chicken House.  Front and back access doors, egg access door, 3 nesting boxes, metal roof, roosting bars, painted.  $300.00.

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
