4. Use the Whey- There are a million different ways to use whey! If you have animals on the homestead like hogs or chickens, they are good guys to give it too!

5. Make Kefir– This is one of the easiest ways to improve your “gut” health!  Grab some raw milk, add your kefir grains and you’re own your way!  The Nourishing Traditions cookbook from Weston Price is one of the best resources we have found for teaching you all about kefir and “gut” health
