Check out the new Goat Cheese Lady Recipe Page!!!

That is where you will find the farm fresh, home cooked dishes that I prepare for my family.  Oh, they are so lucky.  And, even my boys are learning to appreciate it.  My 7-year-old even likes Roasted Beets now!!!  My 4-year-old actually ate a kale chip yesterday without spitting it out.  And, my supportive husband eats nearly anything I put in front of him.  For ye who feast on cheetos and candy bars, this might not be the place for you…but then again, we can all make little changes, right?

For this First Week, I’ll post a new recipe EVERY DAY!  You can modify them to suit your needs, of course.  Here’s what I mean:

1.  I’ll use raw goat’s milk for all of my milk requirements, but you can always substitute with the kind of milk you drink…until you become convinced you need 2 goats. 

2.  I’ll grind my own wheat for all of my flour requirements, but you can always substitute grocery store whole wheat flour…until you become convinced you need a grain mill. 

3.  I’ll use homemade cheese for all of my cheese requirements, you can substitute store-bought cheese…until you become convinced you want to make your own.

4.  I’ll use, while in season, produce from our garden, you can substitute farmer’s market vegetables…until you become convinced to grow your own garden.

5.  I’ll use my family as guinea pigs, you can substitute any soul is willing to take the risk…until you become convinced to get real guinea pigs.

With that said, check out the first recipe and START COOKING!!!

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

    You may be joking about the 2 goats but I actually emailed my little town and asked them what the rules were about chickens and goats. I was encouraged based on what you told me about chickens and goats in Denver. My little town is not as “advanced” though. We can have two chickens per person per household and NO goats unless we’re in an agriculturally-zoned area (which I am not). Booooooo….I LOVE goats! Thanks for the recipes and the inspiration!!
