Our house cows

General cattle care:
Cows and milking:

Milk products:
  • Raw milk - I never knew it was so controversial, but I now have my own conspiracy theories...with more details here
  • I have two cheese making books AND I borrowed another from my neighbour, as well as some recipes in the Healthy House Cow (which gave me the courage to use raw milk, rather than the other books that stress the need to pasteurise).
    • Home Cheesemaking (Neil and Carole Willman)
    • Cutting the Curd, Cheese Making at Home (Katherine Mowbray)
  • I prefer to make soft cheeseyoghurt and kefir
