Next Week: Milk

  • Tuesday: Tressa Yellig of Salt, Fire, & Time, who shows us how to make traditional yogurt, and also greek yogurt. It’s much easier than you might think!
  • Wednesday: Garry Hansen of Lady Lane Farm, who has been raising jersey cows all his life. It’s what he loves to do. But as milk prices continued to decline, he decided he had to take a risk and start his own creamery, or face the possibility of losing his “girls.”
  • Thursday: Garry Hansen contrasts the different pasteurization processes, including the homogenization process that is standard in the dairy industry, and how he processes his milk differently.
