The Family Cow Class
I appreciated your openness to questions, the organization in material you were to cover and your nature and presence with the animals. Also, your willingness to receive questions and offer guidance via email or phone after the workshop.
Management Intensive Grazing Class
Thank you for a great workshop yesterday! It was great to learn more about grazing and pasture management as well as see some of your set-ups.
Thank you, Lisa! It was such a pleasure to meet you and see your farm. I am feeling inspired for my own ventures...however they unfold. I find myself walking around studying plants in the ground and thinking about them more.'
Butter, Yogurt & Cheese Making Class
Thank you for a great class, I really enjoyed it and learned a lot. It boosted my confidence with using raw milk to feed my family and gave me the skill set I needed to continue on this journey. By the way, I made yogurt yesterday and served it this morning. YUMMY!! I also have the fromage blanc hanging in the kitchen as we speak. So far so good!!! Today we make butter!
