Well, we officially have an electric fence (that means I am a big toughy pants and worked my bummy off today) (and Joe helped, of course)- so that means by next weekend we will officially have a cow. Clara is coming to be our family cow. She will provide us with lovely delicious, raw, whole, grass-fed, real milk. And cheese, butter, yogurt, sour cream, etc.
This isn't Clara, but this what she mostly looks like.
I will be making cheese, yogurt, butter, etc. pretty regularly (and by that I mean constantly) since my nice small 1,000 pound darling Clara gives 5 1/2 gallons of milk a DAY. So, although I would like to try to use it all because I really like milk and anything made from milk, I probably shouldn't single handedly consume 5 1/2 gallons of milk a day. That said, I am now accepting applications from people who want to get their milk here. For their pets. Because in New York State, I could get in big doo-doo for selling raw milk for human consumption. So, if you have a pet (wink wink) or know of someone who has a pet that needs some milk, feel free to pass this info along and let me know. If you are wondering why the heck someone would want raw milk (for their pets, of course), check out this article.
And because, otherwise, we'll be swimming in milk...

That picture is disgusting. Now I'm not sure how I feel about milk any more. But if you promise not to pour it over my head, I will get three gallons a week for my pets. I have three pets, you know, and we are planning to get another pet in about 22-23 weeks. I won't need milk for *that* pet for a while.

But I know of four other families who have one, two, two, and four pets, who all would like to get some delicious, wholesome milk for them.

Nice- feel free to spread the word, milk will be available as early as the middle of next week.

Joe thinks the picture is gross too. He tried to get to not post it.
I think it's amazing, where did they get all that milk?
Anyway, must go make breakfast.

Will spread the word... So very excited for you! And can't wait to meet Clara. As for the picture... it's kind of yucko. Though isn't cleansing with milk good for your skin?!? Maybe even good for your hair - didn't do my homework before I posted - sorry. Real early - need more coffee. Hope you have an udderly fun-filled day, hahahaa!!

Ahh, milk baths, there's a way to use the milk up!
Thanks Rory,
