Goats & Soap Workshop! 2 Spots Left!

Come to Cold Antler for a day dedicated to dairy goats and homemade soap. It'll be a multi-farm adventure - visiting both Common Sense Farm (just three miles down the road) and CAF. Come to learn the basics from the experts at CSF on getting into home dairy. Learn about the breeds, the people who raise them, and what goes into keeping an animal that makes you milkshakes, cheese, and amazing soap.

In the early afternoon we will make a batch of soap, a dairy based recipe of near-frozen goats milk and natural essential oils. Learn how the chemistry and process works as well as how to mix it up with additions like oatmeal, home-brewing extracts, or herbs from the garden. This will be a day of happy barns and happy hands. Come meet the scene and go home with a bar of the day's spoils (if it hardens up in time)!

Price $100
Sunday June 15th 2014
Cold Antler Farm, Jackson NY
10 SPOTS

P.S. If you are thinking about a workshop, or perhaps more than one workshop, Season Passes to a YEAR of classes at the farm cost roughly the price of three workshops. This INCLUDES things like Fiddle Camp, Arrows Rising, and such. You can actually buy a Season pass for less than the price of Arrows Rising, reserve your archery spot in the fall, and then come to any goat, horse, writing, or music workshop you wish to attend. You get a discount on Indie Days, and I'll throw in a Clan Membership, too! The only catch is things like instruments and bows are not included in the price of the Season Pass, but they are not much more and you can wait till closer to the workshop to pay for those things. Anyway, EMAIL ME, if you are interested! jenna@itsafarwalk.com

it would be great to see a pig workshop, wherein you are the student, or at least a demo of the buthchering process followed by methods for smoking

So I'm wondering if you could film or webinar the goatsmilk soap workshop? I am in California...there's no way I could attend in person, but I would love to somehow follow along and learn how to make the soap, maybe others might too? I see pay per view income stream potential...

So sad I don't live closer to your lovely farm. I would go to all those workshops in a (barn)heartbeat!
