#60 – Milk a cow

We called on our friend Zach for this one; his family used to have dairy cows, but recently sold them, so he was kind enough to set something up with a family friend of his.

We all went out to the farm for the evening milking, and got acquainted with the adorable barn kittens and calves while Terry and his family got started with the milking.  When he was ready for us, Terry took us over to classy lady Delbert, taught us how to milk and off we went.

We really, really appreciate Terry allowing us to come visit his farm, taking the time to teach us how to milk, and answering all our questions about his operation.  A very big thank you to Zach as well, for setting this all up, driving down from Kitchener to help us, and for also answering all our questions about dairy farms.

    Whoa, that’s a good one. We just joined a raw milk dairy, maybe we’ll have to add this to next year.
