Churn stand at the end of a farm road
Churn stand at the end of a farm road
Historically each dairy farm had a churn stand at the end of the farm road so that the lorry from the creamery could pick them up. The ritual race each morning to get the milking done, the churns cooled down, and then taken down to the stand before breakfast was something that the entire dairy community had deeply embedded in their work ethic. Missing the lorry was disastrous in the summer as they would be collected later when they had sat in the sun for several hours with the bacterial count rising by the minute.
