On the farm, milk is our business, but it is also our beverage.
We use the milk from our cows. It is refrigerated in the milk house as soon as it comes out of the cow. We use about a gallon and a half in a day or two.
As the milk sets in my kitchen refrigerator the cream rises to the top. Before we drink it, I like to skim most of the cream. We drink and cook with the skimmed milk. The cream is used for many purposes. As it sours in makes biscuits, pancakes, breads, cakes or cookies. We sometimes even make ice cream.
