First time Gwen and Butters on Pasture

Definitely a milestone getting Gwen and her daughter Butters out on the pasture for the first time.

The pasture most likely has never had a cow in it for the last hundred years possibly…it was seeded this spring but not enough of the seed took. Quite a few raspberries growing in it, Gwen is not eating them.

They need fresh air and sunshine and it’s nice to see them on the grass having fun.

Butters loves her new freedom and is running all over the place, going to be interesting trying to get them in at night with little Miss Butters running amok.

Making Cheese

One thing about having a milking cow is you need a method to store the milk when you have an over abundance.

This is why our ancestors created cheese

Raw milk cheese is some of the most delicious variety, it has many “flavor notes’ and is a composite of deliciousness.

Here’s or first farmhouse cheddar so we’re hoping it’s going to be a good one, this one took about 2 gallons of milk and should be ready to eat in about 4 to 6 weeks.
