Steve, Judith and Calley spent a very interesting two days with Frank Kipe and his son-in-law Brian from MicroDairy Designs LLC recently. Frank and Brian drove up from Maryland to install our new pasteurizer and bottler. Frank is an ingenious designer and stainless steel fabricator who is manufacturing a small batch (2-22 gallon) pasteurizer for small dairies such as ours. It’s high quality, full of creative engineering ideas and much more affordable than some of the alternatives. The bottler is especially interesting because it will allow us to bottle things in almost any size containers depending on what holder we use. Initially we plan on doing farm fresh and pasteurized goat’s milk in an 8 oz container. See pictures of the installation process in Flickr.
