Following OHM we dropped Zygis off in Eindhoven and looked for somewhere to
stay for one night before heading down to France. We didn’t book or plan
anything we just set the sat nav to locate nearby camp sites and landed
ourselves in an organic goat farm by accident.
It was a perfect first stop and we ended up staying for 3 nights. The farm had
600 goats, dogs, cats, horses, chickens, a garden brimming with veg and
delightful little kittens everywhere. It turns out they no longer ran a camp
site but kindly let us stay in exchange for bag of kitten food.
The farm made goat cheese on site and would sell to restaurants and at farmers
markets. It seemed a large scale operation with goats rotating between various
barns and the surrounding fields. We also offered to help around the farm in
thanks for letting us stay. The next two mornings we were in the thick of it in
a barn full of goats. We were tasked with laying the barn out with fresh straw.
A messy but fun job. The goats would eat anything and gave my shorts a good go!
The first night we grilled up some delicious goats cheese with enormous
courgettes from the garden on the Cobb BBQ. We cracked a bottle of Moet we had
been saving and celebrated the beginning of our adventures into to the unknown.
Big thanks to Karen, Jan and Maria for letting us stay on their farm and being
