A bit of a deviation from the normal format. I took the opportunity to capture a bit of history, and interviewed my father, John Webber. It is about life on a dairy farm 1970s.
He used to run a dairy farm in the 1970’s, so I thought it would be great to ask him a few questions about dairy operations and how he processed the raw milk.
Join me in listening to his insight into running a small dairy with about 150 head of milking cows.
Also, if you think you have a cheese making story to tell, drop me an email. I would love to have you on the show as my next guest.
If you wish to receive the show on your portable apple device each time I release an episode, you can subscribe via iTunes. You can also subscribe via Stitcher.
So, until next time curd nerds, remember to Keep Calm and Make Cheese!

Funny, we use to spend alot of time in the haystacks as well. We'd construct rooms with tunnels. Imagine how dangerous that was but we never even thought about it. We also had feral cats everywhere which is why im probably a dog person. The cattle dogs were like family. I loved this podcast. Thank you John. I love Jerseys. Such a good temperament and lovely brown eyes. I bet like me you grew up with fresh cream, homemade icecream, butter (butter pats on my cheeky bum) but i dont remember cheese. Hey, did you have to pluck the chooks. I hated doing that. Hot wet feathers on old chooks (you didnt kill layers). When we left the farm my Dad had 3 jobs in town. He died a year later. Thanks for the memories Gav.
