Finally cow farts are being put to good use: image via cosmosmagazine.comOh my, I'm so happy someone is doing this.
So often I wish I could recreate the scents of my old home in Kansas,
where the grass grows high and the cows fart to their bowels' content.
I'd just love to have a whiff of those odorous fumes here with me in midtown
The good news, I learned from my friend Steve, is that for about $8 a tin, I can inhale cow farts whenever the mood strikes me and pretend I'm back home. "Oh give me a home where the..." Sorry, I'm getting carried away.
A young woman from Bavaria, Germany, Daniela Dorrer, came up with the idea to create an extract of cow fart (Extrait de la Vache Qui Lâche un Pet) from the straw in an old barn. Reaching out to others in Germany who were homesick and delighted to buy her $8 tin of cow smelly, her Stall Duft became a hit. Germans and Austrians loved it so much, that Dorrer created a website to sell the stuff. And more earthy odors are coming soon, like horse, straw, pigs, and manure.

A good thing Dorrer is canning these odors because, in nature, that methane gas sure is bad for the environment.
(Oh no! I just realized that Stall Duft is not being shipped outside of Germany and Austria. I'll have to try canning cow farts myself when I go back to Kansas.)

That's the 'duft' for today!
