Homemade butter??? OK, I guess that is where I have to draw the line. Now I am full-blown jealous. I can rejoice with you when the hens are laying prolifically. I am really happy for you when you bake a yummy loaf of bread from your wood stove. When your kids rise up and call you "blessed", I am in total agreement.
But...homemade butter???? So jealous.

Hi Ang. It's good to see you come through that bad winter. You're learning new skills, adding new animals and growing through it all. It must be a wonderful time for you and your family.

I would love to have a little Jersey milker. We live in a dairy region so I have access to all kinds of fresh milk here, including Jersey and Guernsey, but to have me own little milker would be a dream come true.

Granny you are very lucky. The butter looks very good.

Buttercup is lovely - we are planning to get a jersey cow in the not too distant future! I remember milking the jersey cows on my school farm, the milk was so fresh and creamy, I've never tasted anything like it :) Your butter looks great - bet it tastes better than anything in a store! (and hello granny, fancy seeing you here lol)

Hello:) I found your blog by way of another homesteading blog yesterday. Thank you so much for writing about your life. I read from the beginning up to today...took me the entire day (in between homeschooling and 3 kids lol).
It is such a blessing to find someone who is able to live out their dreams.
I own 3 acres, and while my homestead will not be as large as yours, it will be just as blessed and fun!
I look forward to reading more of your blog!
