Looking for Fresh Air in Abdij van Park Found Fresh Organic Drink!!

Going for an evening walk in Abdij van Park  for a breath of fresh air.  A park with stunning views, a monastery and 3 beautiful lakes.

Grazing cows such Beauty!!

We came across a beautiful lady by the New Milk vending maching.  She was refilling the Vending Maching with Fresh Warm Milk from the cows grazing in the pasture.   There’s nothing quite like Fresh Milk straight from the farm Tasty and  Organic.

milk info

Here a few words from beautiful Ine about the fresh milk from the Farm.  Oops !! my Video taking skills are not perfect.  No worries only start is upside down!!

Dont forget to take your own bottles if you want to buy it.

All info at http://www.boerencompagnie.be/

Dear Friends if  you live in Leuven or nearby  hope you check out this milk, share info with friends and enjoy!! 

In India we boil the milk  before drinking.    For a lighter texture add some water when boiling.    Cooling the milk after boiling gives a thick layer of cream on top which can be used to make Butter.  Homemade Cheese and Yogurt with Fresh Milk is so delicious.

I will be posting recipes with homemade paneer cheese and  yogurt in my blog soon.

Hope you enjoy some beautiful walk in Abdij van Park too.
