That’s a lot of goat milk which Stu made into Original Goat cheese last Tuesday.  But he did a valiant job, not splishing any over the side and with a bit of help, he did a fab job of ensuring that it wasn’t too wet when it was potted up – that is code for: it had the life shovelled out of it.

We got an 11% yield from it, giving us 99 pots.  That’s a lot of potting up and washing up when we knocked it all out.  On my Christmas list is an industrial pot washer….please….
