200 year-old house on 25 rocky acres in high country upstate NY and SO many highbush blueberries!

I have this same churn! It was my husband's grandmothers. They are really expensive new, but the old ones work wonderfully too! Can't wait to hear how butter-making works for you.
Melanie - I'm glad you said that! I really don't want to find one - or I wouldn't mind finding one, but only if it's more expensive than I paid.Erin - Good to know they work well! I sortof wish I would have waited for a smaller one. It will take *forever* to use a gallon's-worth of butter.
I hardly ever use butter -- a pound that I keep in the freezer lasts me more than a year. If I made it, I'd use a lot more!! I guess that's something I can switch to buying from a farm, since it lasts me so long.
It doesn't make a gallon of butter though, so you could freeze the extra or share it with neighbors :) Fresh anything usually isn't hard to get rid of or consume (not that you'd want to eat that much butter quickly - maybe make croissants, that'd take plenty of it!).
