The Trappists Lives

Trappists are monks who are not allowed to preach or to teach. Their lives are devoted to meditation, studyng and reading.
In 1949, one group of Trappists fled to Hongkong from China, leaving behind their houses and the dairy industry. They dressed themselves as labourers and carried only a few possessions.
Here, the monks had to start a new life; but somehow they managed with the help of the community and charitable organizations. It was until 1995 that the Hongkong government granted them land on lantao Island.

The monks are not allowed to beg for a living, so they had to work very hard on the island. They started a dairy farm, kept about five hundred chickens and started growing their own vegetables.

A large part of the work of the Trappist is concerned with their dairy. The cows are fed regularly, milked and kept healthy. The Dairy, which produces about two thousand bottles of milk a day, brings the monks their main income. The monks sell about half of milk to a large hotel In hongkong, while hospitals and schools buy the rest. The monks also earn some money by selling eggs. Sometimes, however, as they are vegetarians.
