We are Inga and Jens Peter, we run an organic dairy farm and Agro turism/B&B on the westcoast of Denmark (jutland) close to a cozy little city called Lemvig.
We have just arond 160 cows that we milk, then we have calves, pigs, hens, bunnies, peacocks, horses, a dog and lots of outdoor cats, and 2 indoor cats.
We milk 2 times a day, early in the morning and once in the evening. year round.
In summer we let the cows in and out every day with help from our border collie dog "Sille" and the atv. We have sesonal calving, so in May-July all or most of our calving happens, in those months we tjek on them every hour/2 hour, from May to September is also your high season with the Agro turism/B&B, and the farm is pretty busy in this time. We often have piglets in summer too.
lots of garden work in this time too, picking berries, plums, making juice and jams.
In fall there is a lot of havesting, driving tractor and machinery. Toasting horse beans.

Winter, milking cows and all the other usual farm rutines.
