In this case, when You don’t use the cream separator, - be ready to leave half of the cream in the milk and to collect less fat cream than you could.
Can I reduce milk spoilage using your butter churning churn?
Sure, we think this is the one of main reasons why dairy farmers buy from us. Here is what Brian Johnston from the US says:
"My story on creating raw milk products was the excess milk I had from my cow and the need to do something to not waste the milk I had... I grew up with a grandmother that taught me how to make simple cheeses and butter. I like the taste of home made products. I then shared the products with friends and the friends started asking me if I made ______. That's how I got into the product side. It is easier to sell just the raw milk. BUT in retail there is an ebb and flow of customers and the milk production continues. So, I just do what I can to reduce spoilage or waste of my product. The money is good no matter what form I sell the "milk". That is how I went from one cow to six."
Can you share any reviews about you and your products?
Sure, some statistics at first:

I can't wait to make all kinds of wonderful stuff with the cream. Thank you...."
