The cheese making building

The Canadian team

We had a super Canadian team here building this spring, 5 people from Steinbach Manitoba and 5 guys from Salmon Arm BC. They built the new building from making cheese (it also has a separate room with its own entrance for processing honey) which we hope to start using soon to make cheese.

Why cheese? Two reasons, we will be able to teach a new skill, keep more students with useful jobs, and turn milk that we have to sell for less in the spring and summer months into a higher value product to sell. Remember, while improvement projects like houses and other facilities are built with the help of Canadian donors we try to operate the day to day expenses of our program from the profits of the farm enterprise.
