Coffee ‘n Goats


There’s nothing quite like sitting on a rock, drinking coffee (and eating chocolate chips, of course)  and watching the goats enjoy the fresh, green grass.


They’ve been penned up most of the winter because there’s just not much natural forage for them in Colorado Springs that time of year…


…they get a little spooked at the drop of a hat…but when they aren’t nervously listening to boys making weird noises, or skittering away from the slightest movement of anything near them, they quite devour anything green in their paths.


And thanks to the early, heavy rains this spring, there’s plenty of delicious, healthy, densely growing grass…yet they still fight over the same small patch sometimes.


At least they are not interested in chocolate chips or coffee.

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.
