With food security and "give us this day our daily bread" as out theme, we could not go through the week without a farm visit. Today we went to two different ones, a modern dairy farm and a small farm where the owner does about everything, including inviting us in for coffee and homemade traditional food.
Starting with the dairy farm. Senbeta is the director of an agriculture program in western Eritrea, helping farmers to increase their productivity. Visiting Kari Ljøkel´s farm outside Trondheim, he had a million questions.
After a while Kari invited us down to walk among the cows, to see how they are milked by a "robot". But now before we had dressed properly.
Thank you Kari for showing us around.
At the next farm we met Jon Fredrik, his cows, his sheep, his hens, his little farm shop, his making of local dairy products, his coffee, his hospitality, his.......
When we arrived, Jon Fredrik was busy cooking "mølsgraut", boiling milk until it tastes almost like caramel, a prosess which takes all day.
Flatbread, from another day´s making.
Coffee was ready for us, and we could have a taste of the local made products.
Here you see a close photo of the sweet, tasty mølsgraut.
I bought some with me home, and will surprise Terje tonight :-)
Thank you Jon Fredrik. I will be back!
