Wooden Butter Churn

The cream was skimmed off the top of cow's milk and poured into the churn. The crank was turned until the cream became butter. This churn was used by the Brown Family for many years.

Many of our readers guessed the Orofino Creamery and/or ice cream.

Harriet Reece shared this story about the Orofino Creamery: "I remember one day when I was a child, someone forgot to lock the door to the freezer. Some of the older boys (I won't name names) discovered this and all the children in the neighborhood had free ice cream."
