thank you.

To say THANK YOU! would be kind of like yelling a really excited THANK YOU!

The Animal Whisperer made this.

To say Thank you! would be more like signing off on a letter.

and these...

But to say thank you. is to say it humbly, from the depths of our hearts, the depths of our souls.

and this...

thank you.

and this.

To all of the family, friends and students who joined us for our One Year Anniversary Potluck on Saturday night.

I made the goat's milk and olive oil soap.

It is because of all of you that we have been The Goat Cheese Lady for one year.  It is because you attend our classes and spread the word.  You have all filled our lives with diversity, cooking tips, laughter, book recommendations, support, love, good food, nice boots, advice…and above all, friendship.

Back here, behind the rocks, our little farm is hidden.  We don’t have drop in visitors like we did at our old, city house.  But, through teaching the classes, we have created a community of friends, who, nearly every weekend, come to learn something new and start new friendships.

Heidi, Eileen, Lindsey, Kathy

If it weren’t for Debi, we wouldn’t know Kathy.  If it weren’t for Kathy, we wouldn’t know Geena, Katie, Jeannette, Chella or Terry.  If it weren’t for Geena, we wouldn’t know Gwen, Julie, Emily and Emily’s friend.  

You can see how our friendships have grown thanks to you spreading the word about our classes.

Claire, Annie, Random Chicken, Kris, Lauren, Lauren's little one

thank you.  For all the food and drinks you brought to the potluck.  For following the parking instructions!  For buying soap and birdhouses and aprons.  For the community we are creating together.

The Animal Whisperer and Beth

thank you.  From the bottom of our hearts and the depths of our souls.  We are honored to know people like you.

P.S.  The Animal Whisperer might not approve of being called The Goat Cheese Lady above.  Substitute his name where necessary.


About The Goat Cheese Lady

I am Lindsey. At first I was a city girl. Then I was an urban farmgirl, attempting to balance city and farm life. Now, after moving to the country, I have embarked on life as a rural farmgirl, complete with my husband, the Animal Whisperer, man of exceptional knowledge and patience, two boys who are louder than my sister and I ever were, a herd of milking goats, and a flock of egg-laying chickens. Coyotes, mice, country dogs and prairie dogs are frequent visitors. Just 45 minutes north is Colorado Springs, the setting for our first six years in the goat world. Our family. Our city friends. Our introduction to cheesemaking. But we...and our growing farm and soon-to-be creamery...have set up shop down off of Highway 115 in Penrose, Colorado.
