Located at the edge of Fort Worth sits Little Dub Farm. I always feel as if I have arrived at a little part of heaven when I am out here.
Owned by Brent and Daina Lawler, Little Dub gets its name from family names and nicknames. Brent’s family calls him B-dub (his middle name is Wayne). Austin, their son, inexplicably got the nickname “Little Dude” when he was playing baseball. Their brand is a lowercase “w” (a little “dub”) which is a nod to Brent’s dad, Larry Wade.
These are such good and hardworking people and it shows. I went to high school with Brent and Daina and I am so happy to see them having such success in their operation.
Today, I was at Little Dub at a Butter Making Class. There were 2 teenage volunteers, 4 ladies, 2 men and Daina, our Instructor. I was totally thrilled to see my friend Stacey who we also went to high school with. She was part of the group along with her daughter.
Daina is patient and very informative. She showed us various ways to make butter. From shaking a jar to a hand cranking butter churner to a Ninja, we got to see how fast, slow and effective these different methods were. Everybody was helping each other out and it was really fun.
We also learned some about Dairy Farming, her animals and the time and care they put into everything they do.
At the end of the class, you get to take your butter home.
You may also purchase some products of the farm – raw milk, pork and chicken, yogurt, and eggs.
Daina will be having a cheese making class soon and you cannot keep me away from that!
The butter making class is $25 per person, all supplies included.
