Butter has been used for more than 4,000 years, but for many years, it was only produced in the home. During the 19th century, many farm wives supplemented farm income by selling butter.

Step back into 1899 and observe costumed interpreters as they complete the weekly task of butter churning. Nineteenth-century traditional techniques of churning will be showcased with opportunities for hands-on participation.
