I remember drinking fresh cow's milk when I was a kid. The farmer would bring over a few bottles. The cream on the top was the best part. Oh, those were the days. The farmer would make me a special bottle of chocolate milk.(At that age, I thought it came from a brown cow, LOL)
We never even had electricity, so no refridgeration. We put fresh milk in gallon jars and stored it in the natural spring here at the Homestead. Dad had even made a small shed to put over the spring to shade it and keep out leaves and such. I still have the old white metal dipper that hung out by the spring. On summer days, there was nothing like a cool dipper full of fresh spring water.

What kind of goats do you have?
Nubian and Nubian Boer cross. I had some pure Boers and decided to get out of them. They get very big and hard to maintain. Boers are better for meat. A Nubian Boer cross makes them more disease resistant and so I crossed them. I started with two boers and fell in love with spotted nubians! Nubians are good for milk and high in butter fat.

All goats are really good for getting into your neighbors (and your sweetie's mother's flowers) gardens, bushes, and flowers! Ha ha ha! I had a lot of lovely flowers and herbs planted until I started getting into goats about 4+ years ago. We did not even plant a garden last season.

Baby time is the best! Baby goats will make you laugh on your worst day! Once they start to bounce there is no stopping them! Goats have been my favorite farm animal so far.

We will have to talk about butter making this spring! I always wanted to try and just have not started yet. If we lived closer I could legally "give" you goats milk.=)

In the winter, they tied a garlic on a string and you wore the thing around your neck. I guess the idea was that you stunk so bad that snotty nose kids stayed away from you. LOL

Good Morning Mumma. I have a few birds outside my window trying to find some old grass seeds I threw out. I hope you have a pleasant day.

I can't afford the expensive birdseed, but I have about 25 pounds of old grass seed that a local farmer claimed would not grow, plus I bought a 50 pound bag of Layena chicken crumbles that I scatter about. That 75 pounds will last the birds most all winter.

Everything is fine here, just cold. But that makes us more appreciative when it is better. Dog, chickens, birds, and I all had plenty to eat and I am looking out the window to see if I can see my deer. The best part of this day is that the CREATOR let me wake up one more time. I hope your day is nice.

Sounds like you are on the ball this morning.:) I agree about the cold, I'm still wrapped up! Yeah these cold days make spring that much better. I love it when everything greens up and the birds get busy building their nests. I guess that's my favorite time of year. Thank you and I hope you have a nice day too.

Here is a very easy way to make about two pounds of butter in less than five minutes., buy half and half, pour it in a food processor. Add one table spoon salt if you want it salted. Blend.

After about two minutes it will begin to clump so watch it like a hawk. The liquid will about be gone, then it will begin to spin off a whitish liquid,, that is butter milk,, yes you can make biscuits with it. When the butter milk production seems to end you are done.

Scoop out the butter. If you wish you can squeeze out a bit more liquid between paper towels. Slap it in a bowl and serve.
When it is butter you can add other tasty additions like garlic or honey for honey butter... it will keep in the frige as long as any other butter. Rewind. half & half, blender about three minutes, plate.
