Where to purchase a butter churner
[Return to Topics]

I am looking to purchase an inexpensive butter churner for family use. I have checked all the usual places but have not found anything. Does anyone have any sources? Thanks.

If passing a jar around the family doesn't suit you (very inexpensive and a lot of fun) then I guess you do have to buy one.
I'm not sure what the "usual sources" are, so I'll list a few that are usual for me but perhaps not for you:

farm auctions (these usually go high, but if you go to enough of them you'll hit one where nobody has any money and stuff goes really cheap)

ebay (again, take your time and you can find one go fairly cheap)

Lehman's (brand new, good quality, several options; not especially cheap but not as high as many auctions either)

good luck,

cream wants to be butter anyway, so you can get by with a jar. if you already have the cream, warm it up and put it in the jar. pass the jar around and let everybody take turns shaking it just however - after about 15 minutes of agitation you'll have butter and buttermilk :)

Go to Sears and get a copy of their Farm & Ranch catalog. They have the little square churns and my recommendation, the 2 1/2 gal. churn. It will take care of the cream of 1 or 2 Jersey cows, and do a great job. The little churns mean you have to make butter much more often, depending, of course, on how rich the milk is....
