Dairy Farming Experiences at a Farm in Eniwa City [Eniwa]
by Shungo Hanaoka
Murakami Farm, which is famous on the local TV program, locates in Eniwa City, between New Chitose Airport and Sapporo. Here, you can enjoy various dairy farming experiences.
Begin with a ceremonial photograph with a cow brought from the barn. Everyone is amazed at its size.
You will learn how to pump milk from the staff and try it. Once you master the tips a little, you’ll be touched by the milk that comes out swiftly.
Next, you will feed the newborn calf. When you give pasture grass to the calf, the calf tries to munch it.
Next, you will make butter. Shake the milk single-mindedly.
Shake it further more． 😊
…And done!! You can taste the butter which you just made by putting it on cookies right away.
If time permits, there would be to talk with the owner of the farm, Mr. Takahiko Murakami.
Segway tour is also held in Murakami Farm. After taking a brief lecture, you can freely drive it in the large farm.
You can feed the cattle kept outside.
The white object shown in the photo is called “grass roll”, and it is made of the rounded pasture which is the food for cattle. The roll is carried into the barn, but you can draw a graffiti message on it.
This is the soft serve which is a ranch specialty. Its rich taste is much popular.
