Announcing…Kid’s Classes!!!

Finally!  For all of you moms and grandmas and dads and grandpas that have been waiting…here is a class for your kids!

Bring your kids to the farm and let them live a little bit of farm life with my family and the animals!

Each class will include a milking demonstration, time with the goats, chickens and bunnies, making (and eating!) a simple goat’s milk cheese, and enjoying plain or chocolate goat’s milk and homemade bread with jelly.  The kids will get to take home some of the cheese they help make!

The class is from 8:15 to 10:15 and costs $25 per child.  To ensure the kids get as much “hands on” experience as possible, the class size is limited to 8 children.  Supervising adults are welcome (and necessary!).  Please ask me about supervision requirements when you call!  I’m sorry, but this is not a class where you can drop off your child, no matter what the child’s age.

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

    Hello,
    I am wondering if your classes are adaptable for older adults (seniors) from the Senior Center. I am not speaking of people with disabilities or memory impairment – just over the age of 55.
    I am interested in having you teach at the Senior Center about goat products.
