After being hardcore proponents of hand milking for a decade, we finally made the decision to cave in and buy a milk machine. So why is now the time to make a change? As I’ve mentioned in recent episodes, we’ve committed to becoming producers for our community. Simply put, in order to be able to produce milk in large quantities, it was no longer viable to milk by hand. While I did have some reservations at first, I soon found out the time saved greatly outweighed any cost or additional clean up that came with the milk machine. If you’re thinking about getting into home dairy yourself, listen to find out if and when a milk machine is right for you.
