Description

On the third farm visit in this series, we are able to experience a day on the farm of Monika and Karl Moser "Maurer in der Edt". They took over the family farm in 2007. The parental generation started with 2 dairy sheep. There are now 30 East Frisian dairy sheep, 4 dairy cows, 2 horses and ducks. The farm is run as a sideline with family and part-time labour as support.

After milking, which takes place twice a day, the raw milk is immediately processed by Monika into the fresh cheese specialities. The handmade cow's and sheep's milk products are available in the farm shop, Käsekastl, in some nearby grocery shops and in selected FoodCoops. An early connection to agriculture is very important to Monika and Karl. That's why they offer "School on the Farm" on their farm to familiarise children with the importance of farms.

How do you look after the welfare of animals and humans? Can you tell the difference in flavour between fresh cow’s and sheep’s milk? What does sheep’s wool actually feel like? We will find answers to these and many other questions on 9 March.

Programme: 10 am – 4 pm
