Default Farm cream

I just have to say that if you can find a local farmer, farm cream is the best stuff ever. The cream we get from our local farmer has to be 50% or more fat, it is SO thick you just about can't pour it.

I need to find a farmer who will sell me the good stuff! I eat *cough* way too much cream and would love something even fattier.

My local farmers market starts up in a week or two, I can't wait!

100% agree - even here in France, we struggle to find good cream.

Most of it is thoroughly pasteurised and reinforced with vitamins and minerals (none of which you can actually absorb) and fat reduced!

Judy can get the good stuff only at the "local" (25 miles away) market on a Friday - but only if she gets there early (and I do mean early!).

I remember cream so thick it would hold up the spoon - and great care was taken that it never become contaminated so a clean spoon was used every time. Those were the days!

Me too. Jersey cream that was deep and solid on top of the milk. A gorgeous colour, too!

I remember when I was 12, a local family used to leave us a billy can of milk (4 pints) every day. We would take it home and put it in a shallow, wide china bowl in the fridge and then scoop the cream off the top next morning. Cream, Butter etc. Yum!!!

For years when my kids were young I had access to raw milk, so always skimmed off the cream and churned the butter. Those were the days when official regulations were not butting in to protect us from ourselves.

Growing up in PA, 6 of us in the house, I always made the Sunday trip with my dad to the dairy farm. We would get 10 gallons in glass containers every week. Bruntons farm. Those bulls they kept around scared the fire right out of me.
