If you are a shepherd then you probably already know the challenges of raising sheep, such as: 

  • problem solving when new issues arise in your flock
  • finding resources to help  you when you have questions
  • having to learn on the job all by yourself
  • lacking the skills or knowledge needed to deal with a particular issue.

Shepherds who have worked with Kim

 

Stephanie - shepherd

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.

Dorothyanne - shepherd

I did not know a lot about branding my farm before taking Kim's class. This course provided specific ideas, tasks, worksheets , motivation and direction on exactly how to brand my farm. I learned that implementing all of the concepts discussed in the course can lead to a successful farm business. The information on the website was particularly informative. My website has a lot of beautiful photos but did not give a good idea of who we are and where we are headed. So I found that material especially helpful. Also, the task of writing a mission statement , vision and core values was enormously helpful at the beginning of the course and was well positioned to guide one through the rest of the information. The course was excellent; well thought out and planned.

Who is Kim?

Hey! I'm Kim Goodling, shepherd to a flock of Gotland sheep for the past 16 years.

I am one of those crazy sheep people who loves everything about raising sheep.
I have combined my extensive teaching background with my love for sheep and wool to help other shepherds.
I teach other farmers who want to embrace the shepherding lifestyle and have their flock earn their way. 
I support them
 in their farm business journey, so they have the information they need to feel confident about making decisions about promoting and marketing their farm business.
