Lavenderwood Farm – 4H Interview
I love the mission of the 4H! I won’t even try to repeat it to you, but you can watch Nadia say it from heart WITH heart on this video. Lavenderwood Farm is a little urban farm (who knew there was such a thing?) tucked away in a not so rural part of Thousand Oaks in Southern California. The mainstay there is are the Nigerian Dwarf Goats, NOT as little as you might imagine. They breed them, milk them, shear them and show them. The partnership with 4H (teaching kiddos responsibility, leadership and how to positively work with animals) is my favorite part. I think I might sign my own kiddo up. The most amazing part is watching these girls speak so well and so confidently! If you had asked me to speak cold at that age, I think I would’ve passed out. Kudos to these four (4) young ladies, actively participating in their community and being leaders in their own right! You ladies are so amazing and inspiring.
If you happen to be in the area, check them out on Saturdays where, most times, you can sneak in a baby goat yoga session. Afterwards, head over to Little Calf Creamery (no relation), get an ice cream in a waffle bowl with sliced bananas, whip cream and caramel. Any flavor will do ya, but the salted caramel is out of this world and, yup, I still shamelessly topped it with caramel. I’ve never – – and I mean NEVER – – had a waffle bowl taste as delicious as this. It’s thicker than usual with strong cinnamon flavor in the best possible way. The whip isn’t the kind that never deflates (like when you hand whip it), but hey, you can’t have everything!
Coming soon, they’ll have overnight stays on site in their sweet cottage!
