Images of islanders making Jersey Black Butter at a farm that is said to be near Wolf's Caves, St. John. The farm may be located along Rue de St. Blaize, but this cannot be confirmed at this time. In these images, taken at the beginning of the process, islanders are collecting firewood to be used to light the fire over which they will stew the apples and cider needed to make Jersey Black Butter. In addition, others are organising the jars into which the butter will be distributed later. For more images from this event, see L/A/75/A3/2/5421A, L/A/75/A3/2/5421C, and L/A/75/A3/2/5421D.
