Wellington Farm, USA “Dairy Days”

 

 Dairy Days, an annual event at Wellington Farm, USA  will take place this year on June 20 and 21.   During the two day event, interpreters at the 60-acre living history farm will be demonstrating the many ways dairy products processed during the Great Depression.  A great learning experience for the younger set.  Beginning with raw milk, it is first run through a cream seperator where the milk is divided into cream and skim milk.  These products are then processed into other useful commodities such as butter, cottage cheese, custard, chedar cheese and ice cream.  Children are often invited to ‘lend a hand’ by operating the churn to make butter or turning the crank of the ice cream freezer.
