Billy goats swapped, Titus gone to Northern Slovakia, Bonifacius has arrived. Greetings to his former owners who follow this blog and drove all the way to our 'end of the world'.

How do you catch a deer

A deer got trapped in our electric fence, we had to cut three expensive electric-nets of his antlers to set him free. The whole herd of sheep and some goats were running free but easily found and directed back home. Now they have moved to their winter accommodation. Most are bearing and first lambs expected around February 19th. The yellow bums will be first followed by red and blue. We have seen 21 out off 22 mated therefore we expect between 20 and 30 lambs coming spring.

Goat cheese

Goats are still milked and our chef cheesemaker is getting better and better in the art of making cheese! He now makes a type of Gouda cheese and a soft fresh variety. Yummy! And even people who disliked goat's cheese like what he makes. Slovak friends have asked if he could make cheese of their milk.
