Our milk cow Sandy gives a lot of milk (three to five gallons a day!). One of our favorite things to make with all that abundance is homemade yogourt. It’s easy, it’s versatile, it’s good for your gut, and it’s delicious.
Coupled with this farmhouse granola, it’s a quick and hearty breakfast full of all the good things that will keep your energy high so you can make progress on that mile-long list of farm projects to do.
Or, make breakfast even simpler by pairing this delicious granola with milk.
Hearty, healthy, and delicious.
