Our golden milk is produced by Guernsey and Friesian cows in a valley in Wiltshire where they graze wildflower meadows full of the greenest grass. Nick and Christine have spent time learning all about cow psychology, and treating cow illnesses homeopathically; Christine milks their cows at 4.30am and 3.30pm. It takes Christine about 2 hours to get through the whole herd and she always gives them a quick health check - any signs of something wrong and she’ll treat the symptoms with some herbal infusions. This is a skilful task as she uses many different infusions to treat different symptoms. Christine knows that each cow is different too, and sometimes she might have to choose one remedy for Elizabeth but a different one to treat the same symptoms in Bentley Mountbatten Marmalade. Berkeley Farm Dairy uses plastic bottles, which are much easier to recycle than tetra-paks.

Storage and prep
Never store at room temperature as this can make the butter "rancid". Always keep it refrigerated and properly sealed in its own wrapper as this ensures a prolonged shelf life. Always remove from the fridge about 20 minutes prior to using to ensure it spreads. It is suitable for home freezing.
