Dairy man

Monique, Katka and Arnold went on a cheese making course in Velky Blh at 'Farma Kozinka' were they learned to make a large variety of Slovak cheeses. This is a spaghetti-like fresh cheese; a typical Slovak cheese snack and it will certainly be made on our farm this summer (pictures: Monique Smets). We have actually started to milk our goats again this morning. The first batch of kids is now a month old and they are separated at night from their mothers in order to be able to milk them in the morning. During the day the herd grazes on the hills not far from our home. Between the brownish dry grass nice green leaves have started to appear.
