After a journey by road and ferry of 12 hours the Toggenburg and Saanen goats arrived at their new home in Belgium, relaxed and content. This is a successful commercial herd, and you can see some of the residents forming a reception committee.
Goat’s milk has always been very popular on the continent as it is considered very healthy — and it produces wonderful cheese. Throughout Europe goats are an important part of the agricultural scene.
Some of the milk produced by this herd is used to make cheese and ice cream on site, which are then sold through their popular farm shop. We stock up whenever we can, but unfortunately the shop was closed this time!
