In peasant farmhouses butter was usually made by whipping cream in wooden stave churns. However, this must have been an exhausting activity: hands fainted and the back numbed. Nonetheless, whoever has ever tried real cottage butter shall never regret the effort. To facilitate this activity, peasants invented a churn with a crank which moves the pestle in the shape of a small windmill. The device significantly accelerated the process of whipping huge amounts of butter.
