Petaluma, CA. ~ Brimming with authentic small town pride, Petaluma’s Butter and Egg Days Parade pays tribute to Petaluma’s place in history as the “World’s Egg Basket” and the communi- ty’s rich agricultural heritage. Originally created in the 1900s to promote Petaluma as part of National Egg Day, the parade has grown to more than 130 units attracting 30,000 people into downtown. This year’s parade theme, “It’s Always Punny in Petaluma”. Celebrating all that is udder-ly eggs-ceptional in Sonoma Cow-nty and the mag- nificently witty Clo the Cow on her 50th Birthday.

Facts & Trivia #3

The earliest butter would have been from sheep or goat’s milk; cattle are not thought to have been domesticated for another thousand years.

An ancient method of butter making, still used today in parts of Africa and Near East, involves a goat skin half filled with milk, and inflated with air before be- ing sealed. The skin is then hung with ropes on a tripod of sticks, and rocked until the movement leads to the formation of butter.

In his Natural History, Pliny the Elder calls butter, “the most delicate of food among barbarous nations,” and goes on to describe its medicinal properties.
