The future of a millenial old tradition is in the hands of one young man, 16 years of age…watch to the end to understand why.
High up in the mountains of North Lebanon, at about 2,000 meters in altitude deep within the Ehden Nature reserve, the Douaihy farm has been making fresh Darfiyeh, a deliciously pungent goat’s cheese, for over three generations. Follow these two families, one Christian and the other Muslim, living together as they shepherd their flocks of goats and make a unique goat’s milk cheese in traditional goat skin bladders.
