  • What is buttermilk?

    Buttermilk is a by-product of butter (although we like to call it a co-product as we think it is just as delicious as our Jersey butter!). When we churn up our Jersey cream, the fat begins to form into butter and a liquid is squeezed out. This liquid is then fermented to make buttermilk. Whereas our butter is very rich and creamy, our buttermilk is low in fat and high in protein, meaning it is very popular with those interested in fitness.

    Buttermilk has some similarities to drinking yogurt, but with nothing added. It's not an easy product to make and we have put a lot of effort into getting our buttermilk as good as we can; which we think means as good as it gets. We are looking for a full body and clean, sharp taste with a slight fizz on the tongue leaving a clean palate at the end.

    What do you use it for?

    Many people, especially those from East of the Rhine, enjoy our buttermilk without anything added, simply as a traditional refreshing drink. Others blend it with fruit and use it as the basis of a healthy smoothie. Buttermilk is also a key ingredient when baking items like soda bread or scones - improving texture and lifting the taste. You can also add it to mash, to get that creamy texture without the added calories of butter!

Nectar of the Gods!

Longley Farm buttermilk, along with ALL their other produce, is outstanding! This company deserves to be given a national heritage status for the quality of its fare.
Once you have tried them..you will be spoilt for life!

I've just cleared the shop out!

Never tried buttermilk before (not as a drink anyway) and I'm blown away. I suppose it's not to everyone's taste but that just means more for me! Handy that it freezes as well. Glad you keep putting these products out there.


Bought for a cake recipe and it did the job wonderfully.

A rare find

I worked in The Netherlands for several years and became a huge fan of karnemelk and missed it hugely coming back to the UK as it is so hard to find in the shops here. Just found it in our local whole food shop in Newport Pembrokeshire. Really enjoyed the product and will be going back for more
