South Caernarfon Creameries is Wales’ leading farmer owned dairy co-operative
Traditionally Welsh Butter is salted and it is recognised that Welsh palettes are traditionally more ‘salty’. Legend states that as the Welsh economy was founded on mining and agriculture, salty foods were used in the diet to replace nutrients lost due to heavy manual work.
To make exceptional butter, you must first start with a good quality cream base. At South Caernarfon Creameries, our milk has been consistently recognised as higher quality than the national average – thanks to our lush green Welsh pastures and significant rainfall – so we know that our member farmers’ locally produced Welsh milk provides the perfect key ingredient. To ensure that our Welsh butter is made as authentically as possible and to replicate traditional production methods, South Caernarfon Creameries uses a traditional butter churn.
The cream is churned and once the butter is formed, it is delicately flavoured with Salt to enhance the flavour and make it ‘traditionally Welsh’.
