Someone cue the Hallelujah Chorus, butter is back in the Jako Farm store! Thank you for patiently waiting for that gloriously yellow goodness.
If Jako Farm had a mascot, it would be butter. Did you know butter was the first dairy product made at Jako Farm?
When Ken transitioned from selling commodity milk to direct marketing, he started by making and shipping butter. Here’s a flashback to 1998 with Daniel in the milk house experimenting with butter making. Fortunately we’ve moved past using Judy’s kitchen blender, but that’s how it all started.
Now, Ken puts fresh cream in the mixer…
Whips it until it becomes whipped cream…
… and after a lot of mixing, we have butter and buttermilk. He then drains off the buttermilk, does a few washes with water, and then adds the salt. Finally, Ken presses the butter into tubs and it heads to the freezer.
◾ I give it to my toddler before bed to help him sleep longer.
What’s your favorite way to eat butter? I’d love to hear from you!
Cottage cheese is here!
We’re thrilled to have cottage cheese in the farm store. Kaydee, the newest Jako Farmer, made some and brought it to lunch recently. It was so tasty, we unanimously agreed it had to be made for the farm store. We would love to hear your feedback. Too dry?? Too salty?? We really want to know.
