Cow hotel

You can’t stay the night, but the guests at the new ‘Cow Hotel’ at the animal husbandry research institute farm Aver Heino can ‘see, hear, smell, feel and taste how it is to be a cow’. A special hostess receives guests at the organic demonstration farm, where they can walk around and learn about organic livestock farming from information boards, and hopefully come to the conclusion that organic dairy products are better. Just like the guided tours round breweries, the visit ends in a Cow Café, where visitors can enjoy a healthy glass of organic milk instead of beer. The new ‘hotel’ opens on Friday 24 June, just in time for the Organic Farming Open Days at the weekend. / GvM
