We have a churn at home. ...

We have a churn at home. It is a round timber one. It has four legs under it to keep it steady. In churn are beaters, which as the handle of the churn is twisted the beaters go around very fast.
Some people make churns with tincans. They fill half the tincan with cream and put on the cover. Then they shake the can until the churn is made. Others make churns in jars.
We have our churn for seventeen years. Any stranger that comes into our house always makes a part of the churn so as not to take the butter.
