The Evolution of the Butter Churn
It is widely believed that the very first butter churn was not a churn at all but in fact a pouch that held cream hanging from a traveler’s pack. After a long bumpy journey, the cream had turned solid and butter was made. Some cultures around the world still use this method of making butter, by putting cream in a pouch, hanging it from the ceiling, and pushing it around. Over time, simple churning devices were created that aided in the churning process, but they were still exclusively used for homesteads and small-batch butter making. During the industrial revolution, larger machines were made to aid the mass production of butter that could be sold in grocery stores.
