Organic Butter Making

We call in on the Acorn Dairy butter production line!

Wednesday is maintenance and butter making day at Acorn Dairy.
Every week we churn cream and a little salt and make our delicious & popular butter. It is then hardened for a week in our fridges, before being put through the extruder. This squeezes out excess water & forms the butter cylinders you love. Each butter is then hand wrapped & labelled.
No ‘smoke & mirrors’ here. A natural product made from the best organic milk.

In the photos, Carl and ‘torso only’ Dave show you the ropes.
