Starting to ‘Live the Dream’ to milk sheep and make cheese from the milk and it is more wondrous than I could have imagined. Most of 2016 and 2017 have been taken up with experimenting to create the equipment for mobile milking.

TO THIS in 2017:
The sheep were SO calm with their lambs around, and the milking machine mimics the lambs rate of suckling, so no need to restrain the heads of the sheep, they were perfectly happy.
But I couldn’t lift all of the equipment on and off the Landrover on my own. So for 2018 – Jason Steen, designer extraordinaire of Theatre Royal Plymouth’s Production Services department rigged this up for me, using a suspended track from Harken Industrial.
