Great visit! Audrey is remarkable and the water buffalo are stunningly gentle. Not appropriate for very young children.

I really enjoyed hearing about the personal history that seeded this farm....also appreciated information on the animals and the process of milking and making cheese....some misinformation communicated to the group in the question and answer session regarding the 5 precious parts of the Indian cow and whether they are consumed...further research would be wise..not only are they consumed but they are also incorporated into Ayurvedic Medicine and even Tibetan Medicine, and relied upon by many Indian folks...seems as if selling cheese to the visitors is a missed financial opportunity and means of "soft" advertising ...but perhaps focusing on milk production is the best way to make a living for a farm of this size in terms of both herd and people power.....
