Make goat cheese at Tivsjö Farm
From: 2,500 kr
Make goat cheese
During a visit with us, you may produce your own cheese made from unpasteurized goat milk. First we milk the goats and then we go through all the steps necessary to produce really good goat cheese. During the wait, there is also time to visit all the animals, swim or take a ride in the boat. We are happy to lend our fishing equipment. During the day we offer good coffee with a sandwich.
Alternative: Make soap from goatmilk
Instead of making goat cheese you can choose to make soap from goatmilk. This activity is not suited for children so we do not recommend families with younger kids to pick this. If you are staying for a longer period of time at the farm you can add this activity on top of making cheese for the price of SEK 2 500:-, if you are interested in both activities, please inform us when you book.
If you are staying a few days there are many things to do. We like to row out to an isolated island, grill sausages and even stay overnight under the bare sky! We often use our sauna, located by the lake, so just to jump in. Excursions in the forest is lies close to my heart. Me, Anja love to pick herbs and berries, and in particular cloudberry. In the fall, I like the woods and during the autumn I can show you my best mushroom places. Of course you can also help to take care of the farm and animals, such as milking the goats and attend our small animals. A stay with us is also ideal for families with children.
We are eager to share all the knowledge we have gained after 25 years on this farm, and we look forward to your visit with us.
