Internship in the ‘Friesische Schafskäserei’ (Friesian sheep dairy), part 1

By Corinne Feldmann – MSc student

After finishing my master thesis with the RSO department and FiBL in Switzerland, I decided to do some more ‘practical work’ during the internship for my MSc Organic Agriculture.

So, here I am…on an organic sheep dairy farm in Northern Germany. The tourists are not yet here, since it is icy and cold – not very attractive for holidays right now. But in a few weeks they are supposed to come in order to visit the farm, look at the sheep, and try the cheese.

Right now the lambs are getting born. They are cute but freezing outside in the stable – just like me. There are quite a lot of lambs already, so that we will start to milk the sheep soon and than we can also start to produce cheese…for all the expected tourists.
