INFORMATION to Top

butter churnFor years, butter was prepared on the farm by churning. The crock churns at the right are the type that this webber spent many a Saturday with when growing up. We had a small farm and some holstein and guersney dairy cows. We not milked our own milk but sold milk in jars and/or pails. There was a lot of left over milk. The milk left over was allowed to "cream" and the heavy cream was placed in a container for future churning and the milk was placed in the well and allowed to clabber naturally to be made in cottage cheese.

On Saturday, the heavy cream was removed from the refrigerator to begin warming up. It was placed in the churn and before I could play I had to churn the butter. We drank the buttermilk and used the butter on bread and in food preparation.
