Re: Buffalo Fly

I had Norco Grafton get the cattle coat sent down from Norco Lismore. I think it only took 2 days. Once they knew what I wanted they were happy to help.

Re: HI from BJ

Hi there and welcome.
I'll look forward to hearing how you go with your ewe milking. Sounds cool. You'll be able to make interesting cheese that way I''m sure.

Re: Hi everyone

Hi Glyn, Welcome to the board. I'm in the northern rivers too, just north of Grafton. Actually there are a few of us here from the NR. Where abouts are you? It sounds like you have a lovely little farm up and running. It's a lot of work isnt is? We have just 1 hectare and are working on providing so...

Re: Cheap & Easy to Clean Separator

Hi Glyn, Glad you added photos - I'm a visual person! I figured out a separating method too. I put my milk straight into bottles (I use the 1.5 liter cranberry juice bottles) and allow the cream to separate in the bottles. I bought myself a turkey baster last week and now I just "suck" the...

Re: Seasons Greetings to All

Hi Deb and welcome :-) I'm hoping for a tomato glut this year too... I transplanted about 30 plants that came up where my dh threw the moldy tomatos a few months back. I bought a food mill recently too so am wanting to try tomato sauce this year. My kids eat so much of it! I'll also be looking forwa...

Re: Freezing, pressure canning and botulism...

Thanks everyone. I picked some beans the other day, blanched them and stuck them straight in the freezer. They look wonderful and green and still crispy, although I hope they stay that way when they are cooked. I hate soggy beans... Now about that pesto... can you can it? Well you must be able to, o...

Fowlers Vacola Jars for sale

Hi guys, I've decided to sell all my fowlers vacola jars to fund my purchase of some screw top jars for preserving. I have about 150 jars in various sizes, mostly 27's but also some 31's and 36's. I also have some stainless steel lids, bands and a few rings. The lids and bands have been used only on...

Freezing, pressure canning and botulism...

I have a mixed up and muddled up question to ask. See if you can figure out what I am asking ... How come you have to pressure can beans & corn etc but it's ok to freeze them? From what I can gather, freezing doesn't kill the botulism spores. So is it just because they aren't in an anaerobic sta...

I'm Impressed Hugh! If you can eat it then I say you've done a good enough job. ;)

Does anyone know if there are any cheesemaking courses in the Grafton / Lismore / Ballina area?

Hi Elaine, I'm a complete newbie to cows but I wanted to add that I understand about how hard it is to get info about how much land dexters need. I bought my cow, Kelly, in June this year, hoping that we'd do ok. I had read that you could keep one dexter on 1 acre of well managed pasture and couldn'...

preserving salt

Hi all,
where abouts do you get preserving salt from? I've checked all the supermarkets and can't find any. Last year I just used salt, anti-caking and all... seemed to work ok. Is it just that the preserving salt stops cloudiness?
Thanks Missy.
