After being hardcore proponents of hand milking for a decade, we finally made the decision to cave in and buy a milk machine.  So why is now the time to make a change?  As I’ve mentioned in recent episodes, we’ve committed to becoming producers for our community.  Simply put, in order to be able to produce milk in large quantities, it was no longer viable to milk by hand.  While I did have some reservations at first, I soon found out the time saved greatly outweighed any cost or additional clean up that came with the milk machine.  If you’re thinking about getting into home dairy yourself, listen to find out if and when a milk machine is right for you.

A BIG thank you to Remond’s Real Salt for being our podcast sponsor for the month of June! http://theprairiehomestead.com/salt Redmonds is my #1 go-to salt for cooking and food preservation. I love that it’s mined in the USA and contains 60+ trace minerals which makes it an easy choice for stocking your homestead pantry.
