COUNT ME IN!

Hi! I'm Kim Goodling.

I am one of those crazy sheep people,
who love teaching others
and sharing my passion of farming. 
I have developed Vermont Farm School because: 

  • I want to see small farms thrive.
  • I want to support others in their own passion of raising animals. 
  • I want to impart information about problems and challenges that arise in raising animals.
  • I want to leave farmers feeling confident and empowered to make informed decisions.

 I would love to work with you and support you in your farm journey.

 

I have always wanted to keep sheep, but know little about shepherding. I met Kim at a fiber festival and my eyes were opened about keeping sheep. I have learned more from Kim's blog than from any book on raising sheep. It has become my daily ritual to read her blog as I am always learning. 

Kim Goodlings 4 Steps to Profitable Shepherding course was very educational. Her knowledge and expertise with sheep and bring successful at it is bar to none.  If you have sheep, know someone who does, are considering getting sheep, than this course is for you!  Kim Goodling is very personable and when you meet her and talk to her you’ll see her passion for ALL THINGS SHEEP, shines through.

Totally enjoyed the 4 steps to profitable shepherding, as a new shepherdess I need all the help possible.  Kim your class was very informative and helpful, it gave me so much to think about and ponder my next steps as I move forward with my small fiber farm.  You gave us great information on how to make our sheep pay for themselves and beyond.  Thanks for giving us the tools to move forward in this sheep adventure!

After having completed Kim Goodling’s course on “4 steps To Profitable Shepherding,” I am better prepared to write focused goals and have a clear vision for our farm.  Kim’s lessons were specific and clear and realistic as to application. 

My thanks to Kim!

About a year ago I hired somebody to help me develop a new farm logo ...what was truly lacking in this package was the follow up and the education piece. What really excited me about Kim's package is that she is a farmer teaching another farmer. She is teaching the motions of setting up systems with tools to stay organized and focused...

In supporting Kim, I am supporting a woman in agriculture, a small business owner and a shepherd who is making a living for herself. To me this is important and valuable to contribute to women creating their own business.
