14.00 – 17.00 PM  – We will visit the dairy farm. A guide will transport us by tractor around the large estate established by the Danish agricultural organisations in 1962 and show us the cows, the original stables and the rich pastures. We will be provided soft drinks etc.
At the farm, we will watch a short historical film about the Danish initiative that led to the establishment of the farm in Muak Lek. In this, HM King Frederik IX of Denmark and HM King Bhumibol of Thailand, play important roles.

At the exhibition area there is a playground, where the children for example can learn how to milk a cow by hand! Grown ups are most welcome to try too.
