Making Goats Cheese

After a mid-winter break we are back to making goats cheese on the farm.

We had a cosy Friday afternoon/evening by the cooker warming the milk (and making a shepherds pie for dinner.)

We heated about eight litres of milk to just below boiling and then added 700 ml of lemon juice.

After about 30 minutes we poured the contents into a cheese cloth and let the whey drain out. (We have mixed the whey with grains to feed to the chickens and ducks.)

The final result is about 2 kg of cheese.

Thanks for our new intern, Jasmine, for taking some of these and many other great photos of ongoings on the farm.
