Hey Brent,
Yeah, that's one of my Nubians, her name is Honey.  We are actually going to dry her up next week as she is due in late April.  My milk supply is going to take a hit as she is my best producer.

I'm not a kiwi either, I just live here.  Moved from CT, can't imagine going back.

Hi, I'm another Kiwi here from Taranaki.
Made my first cheese on the weekend, halloumi, very delicious!  And the stuff in the shops is $18 a piece.  Mine worked out at around 50 cents a piece, what a bargin...

 ;D Hi,
I'm in Matakana.  We milk 5 or 6 cows to feed calves and make yummy cheese.  Has anyone made Tim Smith's Cotswold??  I'm sure it should have salt but recipe does not include it??  I actually made one and thought it didn't look quite right so actually brined it, so who knows how that will turn out.

Jude.
