But you can get single pasteurized products if you own a restaurant.
You're right on target, Addie. That milk was absolutely De-licious! Rich, creamy thick goodness.

The drinking milk was poured off before taking the cream from the crock. Then the cream was skimmed and saved for butter making and cooking/coffee.

We had a manual butter churn. Us kids would stand around it and take turns with the churning. I didn't like that chore much either. It made my arms hurt. I was a tiny little skinny kid. Hardly enough meat on me to do hard work, but there are no slackers on a farm. You work or you starve.

We had one hired hand and he worked every minute. I never saw him standing still. He had a room in the barn and ate all meals with us. I liked him a lot. He had a million stories and would tell them to me while he worked. My Dad would yell at us sometimes and tell us to leave him alone so he could work in peace, but we knew he liked us to listen to his stories.

Before working for us, he was a cowboy out west somewhere in Texas. I must have heard a thousand cowboy stories.

Another item found on a farm is fresh rggs. Those yolks are bright orange and stand up so high. We had to wash them since the chickens would often leave something on them. Baby roosters made it to the freezer as soon as they were old enough to start crowing. We didn't want the eggs fertilized. You could tell which ones were going to turn out to be roosters as soon as their combs started to grow. And their waddle was always bigger than the hens.

If any of you are ever out and just driving and you see a sign that says, "Fresh Farm Eggs" stop and get a couple of dozen. You will never forget them and probably plan of going back for more.
