Making Raw Butter and Cultured Buttermilk

The act of making homemade, naturally cultured butter today is a lost art. When I tell people that I make my own butter, they scrunch up there face and say “I would love to do that but I don’t have the time!” Sure you do! Oh I know, you envision me standing outside next to my cow in a long cotton hand sewn dress and a linen apron with sweat beating off my face, hand churning butter in a large wooden vat, right? Seriously?! Ain’t nobody got time for that! As a matter of fact, making homemade butter couldn’t be easier.

Now, I have made butter before in my KitchenAid countertop mixer and let me tell you, it is messy! And I have made butter with a hand mixer and it takes forever. However, a food processor or high-powered blender such as a Ninja is quick, easy and clean.

DIY Coffee Creamer with Raw cream

 

For the majority of my adult life, I have been held hostage by the delicious and famous French Vanilla CoffeeMate™ Coffee Creamer. If you have experienced this smooth morning delight, then you know what’s fueling my addiction.

And believe me, I tried them all.  In my three years of slinging coffee, I brewed up and created some delicious caffeinated concoctions and some not so delicious. Ok. Some were done right

Take a virtual tour of our barn and processing room

When I started with the hopes of one day owning a raw dairy, I had an image in my mind of how the milk parlor would/should be set up. However, it actually wasn’t until I started milking and processing raw milk, did I really figure out what worked for me.  While I grew up in the country and was always around cattle, never had I stepped foot into a small working dairy.  There was a few pictures online that help give me some inspiration but nothing that really worked with what I already had.

Originally, our barn was designed and built for miniature show horses. So the stalls and set up is a bit, well, miniature.  But I was determined to make it work, with minimal expense, a few minor adjustments and an addition of a clean processing room.
