    When will you do another goats milk soap class? I would like to buy a seat for myself and a friend as a gift for Christmas. Or do you do gift certificates?

  3. Suzanne says:

    My boyfriend and I are coming from New York and I thought this would be perfect. He is a chef and loves goat cheese. The only thing is the dates aren’t listed. It would be two of us in August preferably the 14th of August. Would that be available?

  6. I am looking for a cheese making class, preferably on a weekend that could accommodate 6 people. Is there any other times which would be open for this? If not the weekend do you have weekday classes?

  7. Tialie Simpson says:

    would like to know if there are April or May classes for soap making?

    • Tialie, I don’t have any classes on the official schedule right now…but all it takes is 2 people wanting to take a class to get one on the schedule! If you have a friend who would like to take it with you, give me a call and we’ll set it up! 719-651-9819. Lindsey

  8. Rebecca says:

    Unfortunately, i am not suppose to eat any cheeses, bummer. I’m a dialysis patient. I would love to learn how to make goat milk soap. I have heard of the many benefits of this soap. Please let me know of your class schedule . Regards, rebecca

    • Rebecca, I am very behind on returning messages, however I did get your phone call and your last email. I’m so glad you have been persistent! I would love to teach you how to make up milk soap. I scheduled the soap and lotion classes on special request as long as I have two or more people. I don’t usually put one on the schedule. So, if you find a second person who would like to take the class with you, give me a call and we will set it up. If you don’t have a second person to take the class with, I can put you on the list for when I have other people request the class! Lindsey

    I found info about you on Craigslist, and navigated here to learn about your coops. I see you have classes. Are you in Colorado Springs? I live in Parker, CO and would love to talk to you about a coop and your class. Our chickens will be arriving in April, raised to pullets. We are excited but want to learn more. MLB

    I’m interested in your class on raising chickens and was trying to find out how often you run them and when the next class will be.

  19. Krystal says:

    I’m interested in a kid’s class, but can’t make any of the July dates. Will you be offering any of these in August or September?

  20. Linda Messinger says:

    Hi Lindsey,
    I have a gift certificate for the full goat cheese making class that my husband gave me for Christmas. He has decided to take the class with me. When will your July schedule be posted? Nothing in June works for me due to my work schedule. If anyone is requesting a weekday class, that might work for us-I am off 7 days and on 7 days. I am a city farmer. I grow vegetables instead of grass, have 6 chickens for eggs, an angora rabbit for the fiber and the fun, 2 bee hives (actually my husband’s pets), a dog and a cat. We stay pretty busy, but always willing to learn something more. I would love to have a pygora goat or two, but not sure we could get away with it in downtown Colorado Springs. Some of your posts have me wondering!!

  21. Lenore Leavey says:

    I am intrested in the care of chickens class. Are you going to be offering that again soon? I would appreciate any information.

    Thank You,

    • Hi Lenore! Thanks for asking! We do have a Raising Backyard Chickens class scheduled for Sunday, May 15 from 1:30 to 3:00 and two classes at Venetucci Farm on Saturday, May 28 from 9-10:30 and 11:30 to 1:00. Do any of those work for you? Lindsey

  22. Regina Andrews says:

    Hi Goat Cheese Lady

    my name is Regina Andrews and I won a fantastic “Goat Cheese Making Clkass” from the PeakDem fundraiser last n night!!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR DONATING!
    There will be the four of us (Drew and I and a couple of friends) and we where hoping we could do this on a Sunday. Just let me know, which ones you have available. We are looking more towards late May or June

    Cant wait

    Drew and Regina

    • Hi Regina! Congratulations on getting the gift certificate! It is good for one person, and the maximum class size is four…so it sounds like it’ll work out great to have you and Drew and a couple friends! I post the schedules about one to two months in advance, so keep your eye on the schedule of classes on the site. I do classes many Sunday’s each month, so I’m sure we’ll get one that’ll work in May or June! Lindsey

  23. Tammy says:

    I saw that your Planning & Starting Your Organic Garden class on Saturday, Feb. 5th, is full. Will you be having another class, and when? Thanks~

  24. Elise Bowan says:

    Hi Lindsey-

    It’s so great you are doing this. I am asking for a gift certificate for Christmas for your class.

  25. Deb Flesher-Bratt says:

    I am interested in the soap/lotion class. For the cost of $70.00 how many products will this yield? (# of soap bars and or size lotion). Are containers for the lotion and or soap molds provided or should I bring something special as I plan to give these as gifts?

    • Hi Deb, You’ll get about 24-26 bars of soap and 1 1/2 cups of lotion. You can get more soap if you want to use smaller, decorative type molds. We typically use a variety of non-decorative molds, everything from shoe box lids to plastic food containers. Once these shoe box lid sized soap bars dry for a day, you cut them into the bar size of your liking. If you’d like something more special to give as gifts, please do bring your own!
      – Lindsey
