Skimming the Cream

You’ve heard of the milking o’ the cows, haven’t you? How the milk fresh out of the cow, when left to sit will separate, with the cream coming to the top? The fatty cream was the most valuable part for farmers. They could skim it off the top of the milk and sell it to a local creamery, where it would be made into butter.

This newsfeed is our attempt to skim the cream and give you up-to-date news from the Morrison County Historical Society and The Charles A. Weyerhaeuser Memorial Museum. Of course, you have to realize that when it comes to the history of Morrison County, Minnesota, and the operation of the Weyerhaeuser Museum, it’s all cream to us.
