Visiting our 20 acre farm, if guests arrive in time, usually starts with milking the goats (20-40 min). Guest are welcome to try. The real challenge is usually not the milking, but getting the city-bred children to draw near enough. Milking time provides good opportunity to play with the kids (March-June). When this is done, we start the cheese making process, which then gives us time in between to take the goats out to pasture. Cheese-making is easy to learn, if you have a skilled trainer. After that comes the well deserved snack, with fresh milk, bread-and-butter -and jam, all home-made. These will all be new and wild sights and sounds and flavours, for most!
I am the owner of a diversified organic farm, including 17 types of fruit-bearing plants and 6 types of animals, of which the goats I am most fond of. Our stock grew naturally from 3 to 25 within five years, through careful selection, breeding and good care-taking. They are useful in the production sector (milk, cheese, reforesting), but bring most surprises by how they steal the hearts of our guest. Your curiosity can hardly be at par with theirs!
The pastures lie on a beautiful sloping hillside, but the goats love the shrubs and the low forestry as well, so it is always a challenge to follow them where they can go. If you can't keep the pace, you'll hear the sound of their bells.
Enjoy the country with joyful kids
