Slightly Salted Cow's Whey Butter
Our butter is made the old-fashioned way, using the finest milk from our grass-fed cows and whey cream from the cheese making process, which gives a rich, lightly cheesy, nutty flavour.
Our whey butter is made using a rare heritage recipe and is terrific on toast and brings creamy richness to any dish, especially when baking.
What is whey butter?
Whey Butter is a by-product of cheese making and is recognised by the Slow Food UK movement as one of the UK’s great ‘forgotten foods’. Unlike ordinary British butter which is produced using fresh milk, the butterfat within whey butter undergoes the initial processes of cheese making. Whey butter has a firm texture and in comparison to fresh butter types is oilier and less shiny. Considered healthier than other types of butter due to having a lower fat content, whey butter is also versatile in the kitchen and can be used for cooking, baking or even simply as a topping.
Why is it forgotten?
Producers of whey butter are rare due to production methods being time-consuming, labour intensive and requiring specific skills that are only known by a limited number of dairymen who take a hands-on approach to butter production.
