    Hi Lindsey, just put it on our family webpage how much fun I had making cheese with you in July and that we ought to set it up if we do our family reunion in the Springs next summer! Hope the family vote is for it so I will get to see you and Herbert again next year! Loved the class and can’t wait to see the creamery up and running!

  2. Thanks so much, Lindsey! We moved back to Crested Butte and are slowly getting buried under snow. 🙂 I will definitely do CL and try that Meetup site. Thanks again for the ideas and hope you guys are doing great!!!

  3. Hey Lindsey & Herbert!
    Can you point me in the right direction of where I can post our Colorado Springs Urban Homestead which we have just put on the market? We decided to leave the city and move back to the mountains and are really hoping someone can benefit from our established organic gardens, fruit trees and possibly get some chickens and bees in the future! 🙂 I have been trying to find websites where I can post the listing, but haven’t had much luck. Do you have any ideas?
    Hope you guys are doing great!

    Hi Lindsey!
    Colorado Springs horror writer seeks cheese-making supplies…Is there anyplace locally that one can purchase such paraphernalia? (I prefer to buy from local businesses…) My Mexican-born husband has got me hooked on goats, and my Frankenstein, post-surgical digestive tract wants to make the switch from Holsteins (which as a cow-lover I adore, by the way). However, being a college student (again) while not being a famous horror writer means the goats must — alas — wait for now…Perhaps a class some weekend with you will help this 50-year-old make the leap into the food end of things…Meanwhile thanks for such a positively luscious, mouthwatering site! I must now wipe the drool from my keyboard…and get back to my monsters.

    Hi! I’m new to raising my own chickens & am getting my chick order this weekend. I would love to take one of your classes. However, since they are already on their way, I was wondering if you would be willing to tell me what kind of food things I need to supply my new babies while they are in the brooder? Thanks ever so much!

    Hi, several members of my family recently found out that they are allergic/sensitive to dairy products. I know that you offer classes on making goat cheese, but you sell any? Or do you know anyone else who does? Thank you!

    My son has IBS, and I am looking for somebody who sales goat’s milk near me. I live in Fountain. Please let me know if I can get some from you. I am wanting raw milk as I have been told that it is good for IBS.
    Thank you,

    Hello to Lindsey and family- Oh how I want to enjoy your beautiful family, home and your many talents again. Next, I have interest in the goat soap and lotion class. The cheese making class was absoluting one of the most fun days of my year. Reading your list of “Dreams” made me happy. I agree and feel the same of it’s importance for all to have. You Inspire me…your family is the “true” meaning of “family”. I wanted to share my appreciation of you all and what you do for “community”. Also, you sharing your Blessings just make me smile. Oh, just a little info-Jackson has lost weight, he sooo misses our trips to your home and his goat’s milk as I do. We respect others experiencing the joys of needing it and being able to learn the many uses of the milk. If only the city didn’t have limits of owning more…You are a blessing to me!!! Oh, how I love to know and watch others use their gifts and talents. Your just “remarkable” inside and out. I will see you soon-

    • Linda, Thank you for your kind words. We look forward to having LOTS more milk soon, after our two pregnant girls have their babies….Keep your fingers crossed! We love what we do, and we so enjoy meeting wonderful people…like you. Lindsey

    Hey Lindsey,
    Your neighbor Melina here. I have a beautiful blue cochin rooster who just started crowing and has to go. He’s just 2 1/2 months old, very precocious (!) and will need to leave before the neighbors complain. Let me know if you want him or know someone who does. He’s a beauty but was supposed to be a city HEN!

  12. Mary Bailey says:

    I’m interested in your cheese classes, but even more interested in learning how to raise chickens here in Colorado Springs! Would you consider giving a class about that?

  13. You are an incredible writer much like myself and I am facinated by your site. I hope to attend your classes someday and will be doing some more research into your site just wanted to say YAY for the family farm and keep up the good work. Don’t feel you have to explain your family to us, there really are more and more people out there like us. I toured our butcher plant in Fowler too this year and was so happy to see our latest hogs hanging and skinning. It was wonderful to fill in that piece of our production. Our freezer is full of beef, pork and lamb from our farm and my friend and I are canning goat milk to store it without freezer space. Good luck with all you do you’re on the right track. Let me know if I can be of help, our family has been small farming for about 70 years and 40 of those in Colorado.

    Hey Lindsey,

    I saw your ad on craigslist about the goat cheese classes. Cool! Then I got to reading some of your recent posts and found the conversation between you and your sister about a store you called the Big R – “Wal-Mart for farmers”.

    Just wondering what the store’s name really is and where it’s located at. We live in eastern Kansas and have been dreaming of moving to “the Springs” area for a few years now. We finally are getting closer to that dream and are planning a week in December to come and check out the area more closely.

    Right now we’re targeting the Manitou Springs area, on up to Woodland Park. We stayed at the Lone Duck campground for a week in 2007 – do NOT want to live directly on 24 highway!!!

    We’re both born and raised on a farm and have never lived in the city. We raise Texas Longhorn cattle and Spanish goats. We also raise our own chickens for eggs, guineas, geese, turkeys, horses, and a mule. I’m sure we won’t be able to afford 100 acres, like we have here, but a few acres would make it more tolerable for us. I know living east of CS would be much cheaper, but it looks as boring as it does here.

    Anyway, any info you might have for us would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks!


    • Hi Lori, The Wal-Mart for farmers is actually called Big R! There is one in Fountain (south of the Springs) and one in Falcon (east of the Springs). Colorado Springs is a great place to live and I love to hear about people who have big dreams!! Congratulations on getting closer to yours! You can definately find acreage outside of Woodland Park and further north and west into the mountains, and it gets colder and snowier up there. Black Forest is north of the Springs and also has a lot of acreage. Manitou is a cute town with a lot of character, but hardly any land with acreage. Good luck to you and I hope to meet you soon!
      – Lindsey
