Hi, we are Dutch farmers in Spain, near Extramadura. In this area formerly ran 14,000 goats. It is our dream to have a traditional goat farm and to produce cheese.

We are now living in El Payo, Salamanca, where there is the stable and a lot of terrain to herd the goats. El Payo is a quiet village surrounded by a beautiful forest, where we can herd the goats in the way we want: quiet and a lot of food.

We built a cheese-dairy in El Payo and hopefully we soon will produce cheese. Small-scale and all organic!

At this moment we have 120 adult goats and 70 babies. We milk by hand and herd the goats whole day, with our sheepdog and a guard dog.

In the months April and May (the most beautiful months of the year) we could use help herding the goats. It is lovely to walk in the forest or near the river! Always there is milking and cleaning stables.
In April/May we will make a new vegetable garden. We could use help with that also.
This Spring we will also start producing cheese in the dairy.

We will, off course, supply bed and meals and free time to enjoy the place. We talk English, German, French, Spanish and Dutch.

We hope to meet you! Wilma and Sikko
