FarmHer: Kate Johnson
Kate Johnson didn't set out to become an expert on all things cheese. But it all started in 2005 when she and her family moved from suburbia to small five-acre farm in Longmont, CO. Her daughter began showing goats in the local 4-H and over time the goat herd grew. With plenty of milk, Kate started to make cheese. This FarmHer is now the owner and founder of The Art of Cheese school where she teaches chefs of every level.
In addition to being an award-winning artisan home-cheesemaker, Kate is also a Board Certified Life Coach with a B.S. in psychology and an M.A. in counseling. She stays involved in the community as an active member of our local 4-H program, co-leading “Goats & Galore” (Boulder County’s largest 4-H club) and serving as the Utility Goat Superintendent for the Boulder County Fair. She is also an active member of the Colorado Dairy Goat Association.
