Unpasteurised Butter

Butter as it should be.

  • Unpasteurised
  • Cows' Milk

Britain’s finest unpasteurised butter.
Rich and full flavoured this unpasteurised butter is made fresh on the Crickmore’s family farm.  Using their Montbeliarde cows’ milk their cream is gently cultured and beaten to form a traditional handmade unpasteurised butter.

Made by Jonathan and Dulcie Crickmore in Bungay, Suffolk, England.

More about this

Jonathan and Dulcie Crickmore have been dairy farmers all their lives at Fen Farm Dairy in Suffolk.  Falling milk prices prompted them to diversify into cheese making.  Seeing a gap in the market for a large (3 kg) unpasteurised Brie (similar to Brie de Meaux) they started to develop Baron Bigod.  This involved purchasing a herd of French cows (Montbeliarde) to provide the rich milk needed to complement their newly acquired cheese-making skills.  Baron Bigod is one to watch out for as it progresses – the first batches came available only in January 2013.

In 2015 Jonny and Dulcie decided to further diversify their farm and start making butter too, making unpasteurised (raw milk) butter.  Using the rich cream from their milk it is gentled acidified (cultured) and beaten traditionally to form these rounds.  Being unpasteurised it has a rich flavour and texture.

Comes with min. 2 weeks shelf life.

    Incredible butter, it’s salted and due to my poor health I need to follow a special diet which includes unsalted raw butter, I have purchased unsalted raw butter in the past and when kept in a cold dry environment lasts a long time, I truly hope the option to order this butter but unsalted becomes available in the future.

    In most salted butters, the salt is evenly distributed. However, in this butter, the salt is added as crystals. When I tasted the butter on its own (as opposed to on bread) it tasted pretty salty, particularly when a crystal hit my tongue. And even though it’s only 0.8% salt, it tasted saltier that the Yeo Valley we usually eat, which is 1.2% salt. I guess the bottom line is I just don’t like butter to be salted using crystals.

    That said, behind the crystals is a butter of immense beauty and deliciousness. Really very special. And, of course, when spread on bread, one doesn’t notice the salt crystals as much as when one eats it neat. But, nevertheless, I can’t quite reconcile myself to the crystals.

    If the butter were available unsalted, I’d buy a wagon load!

    This butter made me sooo happy all day when I received it. Even happier when I tried it but I could see it would be special! Lucky as I had ordered 13. I will be ordering again 🙂 Thank you so much for having this amazing butter available for purchase! It’s hard to find.

    Great butter, raw the way it should be, with none of the good stuff cooked out, perfect.

  5. Joe

    Purchased yesterday at my local farm shop. I must say I am so very happy to have finally found a raw butter that ticks all the boxes. I look forward to tasting some of those amazing looking cheeses.

    Amazing! Truly one of the best butters I’ve tried. So incredibly rich, creamy and has a beautiful golden hue.
    Absolutely in love with this.
