Our Butter Supplier
The family at Netherend have been farming since 1936. The farm's milk was originally sold to villagers, who would bring a jug to fill up from the churn which they took around the village.
In the 1990's, the business expanded rapidly, selling milk and cream to retail doorstep rounds, shops and hotels.
To make use of the surplus cream, they purchased a small wooden butter churn and started selling hand packed butter pats. The butter proved very popular in local shops and was “discovered” by a London based dairy distributor, whilst on holiday in the Wye Valley.
Soon after, it was being used in some of Londons’ top hotels and restaurants.
As their production increased over the years, the same care and attention to detail was still given. The butter is still traditionally churned in a much larger stainless steel churn, but has not lost any of its unique creamy flavour and still tastes “like proper butter should!”
