Joining Cindy @ My Romantic Home for
Show and Tell Friday!
my 'Raw Milk' journey!
Last weekend, Gentleman Farmer and I
visited the Dungeness Valley Creamery
whom I am purchasing my raw milk from.
(two posts down, if you care to read about it)
The next day, we went to visit my MIL and FIL.
We were telling them about the sweet farm and how
I am getting some of their milk and mentioned that
I was hoping to start making my own butter once again.
(I grew up on a small farm, milked cows and made butter.)
Dear MIL said that a neighbor they once had, had given her
an electric butter churn because they were milking a cow
and making butter for their 7 children. She said she didn't have
any use for it now and was going to give it away. Would I like it?
I collect all sorts of dairy paraphernalia so how could I resist!
She was thinking I could use it to make butter, but I am only
buying 1 gallon a week. About 1/2 quart of that is cream and
this BIG butter churn holds 2 gallons of cream. I won't be making
that much butter!
It is a 1950's 'Farm Master' Electric Churn from Sears Roebuck & Co.
I found one on-line exactly like it
selling for $225.
I won't be using it anytime soon for butter, but what a wonderful
addition to my collection.

I did make butter with my two little granddaughters
yesterday. You may go over to The Pantry if you would like to
see the results!
