Come for a visit and see what small scale city farming is all about. Feed and hold the chickens, feed and brush the goats, learn about or try your hand at farm chores, and if you come during milking time (7am or 7pm), experience a milking demonstration.  Who knows, you might get hooked!


$25 covers a group of 1-25.  Add a Milking Class for even more fun.


Be sure to wear close-toed shoes. Long pants and shirts are more comfortable to protect against biting flies and mosquitoes.

Milking Class

After learning the basics you can schedule a Just-for-Fun class any time to make gifts or more soaps for yourself and specify the techniques, scents and colors you would like to use. Be sure to order any special technique materials, scents or colors when purchasing your class. Contact us if you have any questions about what you need to order.

You will be required to wear long sleeves, long pants and close-toed shoes. I will provide gloves and goggles that each participant must wear. Wear clothes that can be damaged if an accident happens.  I will also provide a plastic bag and ice bottles for you to transport your soap. Children ages 10 and over must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

We're looking forward to working with you! Call to schedule your class date and time at 512-655-9039. *

Milking Class

Learn to make 4 types of cheeses and assemble a cheese press (if purchased).  Add a milking class for a farm-to-table experience.

It's fun to see how foods are made. I'll show you how to make small samples of 4 different types of fresh cheeses: curds and whey (cottage cheese), soft cheese, hard cheese and ricotta cheese.  We'll also talk about making yogurt and kefir.  If you purchase a cheese press, we'll assemble it as part of the class.


1st Person $65.00, Additional Participants $35, Extra Batches $30.  Student provides 4-5 quarts of raw or non-homogenized milk.  If requested, I can pick it up for you.


If you choose you may also provide 1-3 T of dried spices/herbs  or 3-6 T of fresh herbs to flavor your soft and hard cheese.  If desired, I can provide some of what I have on hand.

Learn to make your own homemade soaps.  This is a hands-on class.  All ingredients are organically and sustainably raised and ethically sourced.

I learned from Lynne of New Moon soaps. She taught me some of her family soap making heritage which she learned from her grandmother and great-grandmother.  Take home the curing product to keep for yourself or give your finished bars as a gift. All materials will be provided.


1st Person $55, Additional participants $35, Extra Batches $20

Try your hand at milking our Mini-LaMancha goats.  Seeing the fruits of your labor is exciting.  If combined with a Farm Tour or Basic Cheese Making Class, your Milking Class is half price. When bringing children under 12, one adult is free.


Call 512-655-9039 to schedule a private or group opportunity.  

Goats are such delightful animals! *
