April was a busy month for us. We had a French guest at the farm Ivan Larcher . Invited to Australia by the Australian Specialty Cheesemaker’s Association.
We jumped at the chance and invited him to Jannei when the option was offered . He was a great source of information for us and he helped us review what we are doing. We have lots of ideas to run by him. He helped us sort our ideas out because he could come from the outside and give us a fresh and experienced view point as he has seen many cheese makers in France and all over the world .
He described himself as a Cheese Tourist. We had Len from the Lithgow Mercury out to take this photo and he wrote a great article in our local rag. It was an informative time too we went to his lectures in Sydney. We have wanted to go to France to check out goat cheese -maybe one day we will, but in Ivan France came to us!
