Get A Gift Certificate!

There are a lot of people in your life.  And, at least half of them deserve a gift certificate to The Goat Cheese Making Class.  Don’t you think?  I mean, picture it:

1.  Your best friend who keeps talking about how much she loves goats.

2.  Your father who never stops talking about growing up on a farm.

3.  Your co-worker who comes to work every Monday gushing about the crazy experiences he had over the weekend.

4.  Your sister-in-law who has always wanted to make cheese.

5.  Your spouse who you love.

6.  You.

7.-113.  Lots of other people you know.

For all of those people, they deserve a gift certificate.  They have enough stuff, right?  We all do.  But what we don’t have is a cross-out on our Bucket List where it says “Milk a goat.”

Oh, you don’t have that on your bucket list?  Well, take it from me, you should.

Or, how about “Make Mozzarella.”  That’s not on your list either?  Man, we’ve got some talking to do.  As many of you know, I love to give business building advice, but this time, I’ll give Bucket List advice.

Milking Goats and Making Mozzarella HAVE to be on there.  Or on your dream list, or on your New Year’s Resolution List, or on the list you keep in your brain.  Just put it on a list somewhere, for goodness sake.

Then, call me.

I’ll hook you up with one of these.

Numbers 1-6 (see above) will LOVE the class (take it from all of the people here) and Numbers 7-113 will LOVE it too.

The only issue is your checkbook.  The classes are $75 per person, so unless you get a really big bonus this year, you might not be able to send all 113 friends.  But, start with at least one.  The one you think it will make the most difference for. (The Goat Cheese Making Class has been known to change people’s life courses, I’ve been told.  Seriously.  Really, I AM serious.)  People come in thinking they’re in for a fun experience, but they leave with huge dreams and plans for their futures.

And, don’t worry, barring getting hit by a bus or some other unexpected, unavoidable experience, I’ll be teaching classes somewhere around 8 times each month for the next bunch of years.  I love it.  And, another thing, you can get gift certificates for any of the other classes as well, if you’d like.

I look forward to meeting all of your friends!!!  And, as I mentioned in #6 above, I look forward to meeting YOU, too!  (if I haven’t yet.)

Happy Holidays!

–  The Goat Cheese Lady

P.S.  Whether it’s our small, local business you support, or someone else’s, please buy your gifts this year from local businesses.  If you can’t go local (i.e. the Excalibur Food Dehydrator is not made or sold in Colorado Springs), then buy USA if you can.  Together, we keep the money in our communities to strengthen our local economies.

P.P.S.  I’m asking for the Excalibur Food Dehydrator for Christmas this year.  I’ll let you know if I get it.  If so, it just might top the chicken shears I got last year.

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
