Hebron School Girls Farm Visit

   Posted by: admin   in Visitors

About 60 school girls from Hebron Girls School, Ooty arrived at our farm accompanied by about 10 teachers.  I am sure they were not clear as to what they should expect of the trip.  But once things warmed up I could see that they were really getting into it.

Most of them were excited at the prospect of milking a cow.  None had tried it before of course.

Some were successful and it showed!

The teachers decided to check out our adobe bricks and tested the weight and strength.  It passed their approval.

They were introduced to Gobar Gas plants and their principles, adobe brickmaking, water harvesting techniques and solar water heating.  Then finally saw the cheese cottage, cheesemaking demo and finally tasted the cheese.  Must say it was a huge success and all of us had a good time.
