Shri Shri Radha Govardhanadhari are now receiving all of Their milk products from cows residing on New Govardhana farm!
By Ajita dasa
The kitchen, situated in the new building on your right as you enter the farm, has been set up to commercial grades and standards to manufacture the best quality produce for the restaurants, the temple, festivals and any overflow caterings.
The main use of the kitchen is to manufacture all the sweets for Govindas’ restaurants and to daily transform the fresh milk into cream, buttermilk, butter, yoghurt, cheese and ghee. It is also where the Deities’ cooks manufacture those wonderful sweets offered to Krishna early in the morning.
The altar’s cooks are provided with all of the above produce for the offerings cooked three times daily. With further establishment of pasture, fencing and breeding, the dairy will also aim at providing for the devotees’ bulk meals and for individual needs.
The produce is organic and ahimsa. Some Australian dairies advertise a type of ahimsa production, but upon further research it seems that the cows are kept but the bulls are sold to others.
Considering this, it would seem that the New Govardhana dairy is unique in its ahimsa ethics.
Producing butter and ghee is the end result of years of work in all aspects of the dairy program. And, yes, this also includes those of you who kindly sponsor a cow or two. We thank you for your kindness and ongoing support.
You are welcome to visit the kitchen by appointment.
