Our Butter

Posted on 14th July 2020

Here at The Butterworks, we only use the finest quality ingredients from Red Tractor Assured farms and suppliers.

We use the Red Tractor Scheme as a way to ensure that all of our products have been produced to high quality standards across the whole length of the food chain. The Red Tractor Scheme ensures that food is traceable, safe and farmed with care.

By looking for the Red Tractor, you are choosing food you can trust, as well as helping to provide support and security for British farmers and food producers.

The scheme ensures that food and drink is responsible sourced. This includes making sure our animals are well looked after and the countryside Red Tractor food is produced in it treated with great care and attention.

The majority of British dairy cows graze outdoors during the summer and stay indoors most of the day during the winter . Barns are extremely spacious and airy – dairy farmers know that cows like to move around and socialise, so they make sure there is plenty of space for exercise as well as rest. Providing cows with nutritious feed is also important. Cows need a healthy, balanced diet in order to produce milk, so dairy farmers work with nutritionists to create special diet plans for them. Most dairy cows eat grass in summer and silage (preserved grass or maize) and cereals, protein feeds, vitamins and minerals in winter. Grass does not grow during this period due to the cold weather and most cows, like us, would rather be inside with plenty of food.

All of our butters are made using British cream from Red Tractor Assured farms. When you buy our products you are supporting British dairy farmers.
