We believe that natural, unprocessed food with a clear provenance is the best and healthiest kind of food.
We are not wasteful. We use the cream that is skimmed off the milk used in our fat free yoghurt to make limited amounts of butter every week. It is made by hand on the farm in the traditional way, by souring the cream with lactic bacteria, before being churned in small batches and rolled into logs.
We then gently pasteurise the cream and pour it into a churn where we mix in a blend of live lactobacillus bacteria. We allow these cultures to ferment the warm cream overnight before moving the churn to the cold store, where the cream is aged. During this process, the lactose breaks down the sugars and carbohydrates in the cream and produces certain lactic acids. These are the source of the distinctive rich, tangy and complex buttery flavour that distinguishes our butter from 'normal' butter.
We do this is small batches, allowing each batch to rest before we knead out the buttermilk by hand and knead in Cornish sea salt. We then allow it (and ourselves) a chance to rest again.
Once we've pressed it into shape, we hand roll it and wrap it in our distinctive gold foil, ready to make someone’s day.
