Wonderful informative tour given by Aletta. Learned quite a bit about goats. Its amazing what she has accomplished without electricity. The yogurt was tasty was the cheese wasn't really to our liking. She really has a bond with the goats.

Take a break form all the diving and go see the goats. They are fun to play with and actually the story behind the farm is very interesting.

A very nice and relaxed tour by Aletta despite the problems caused by no electricity. She shows her love for goats. Very tasty milk and cheese.
