About Me

We are young multi cultural family. We live in rural latvian country side and we have organic goat farm and cheesery. We have around 100 milking goats and from our goats milk and neightbours cows milk we make world known cheeses as fresh cheese, feta, Mozzarella, camembert, semi hard and hard cheeses.

Steffen is German, has been studying geology,lived in Norway and traveled a lot around Europe with his Landrover Defender. Likes to discuss about social topics, politics, travels, interested in life stories and history, gets mad if someone is illogical and unfair. A friend told about him: he is geologist, but definitely very far from being a hard stone hearted one.

Ruta is Latvian and is proud to be a farmer lady, not always very talkative, but it might be just the point of the mood and topic..., otherwise warm, friendly and hospitality - enjoying more to have guests as to be a guest ;) Loves nature, animals, traveling, cooking, handcrafts and my family, finds herself in to folk, traditional old ethnic phylosophy and paganism, is in to latvian sauna traditions and fitotheraphy. It depends of you and your attitude, you might find her as a great,open, caring friend or an arrogant and rough lady.

We have 2 sons: Rūsiņš is an active, smart and friendly 10 years old boy. By side of shool he goes to music shool and plays cello. The most happy he is always about other kids company, but if this is not possible, then he loves to play table games, football, practice his knowledge of English, German, the world and animals (dinosaurias including).

Our small one - Jurgis got born on 2015. april, at the moment he is 2 years old. In general he use to be quite calm boy and the most interested he is in everything what adults does. He loves tractors and beeing outside.
