Abernethy Butter Company

Abernethy Butter Company Featured Image

Established in 2005, the Abernethy Butter Company makes creamy hand churned butter daily on the family farm located outside Dromara in County Down. Will and Allison Abernethy use locally sourced cream to produce their butter which contain no additives or preservatives with a shelf life of 12 weeks.

The enterprising couple use only traditional techniques on Beechtree Farm, which has been in Will’s family for generations. They source cream for the butter from a local farm that grazes cows on the lush green pastures of the Lagan Valley in County Antrim. All that is added to the natural butter is a pinch of salt. The buttermilk is removed and the butter then has to be washed in cold water 5 times to wash any remaining butter milk out as it would sour the butter. Then they add salt and using wooden butter pats the butter is rolled out and then can be sliced into rounds for serving. What the couple have done is to carry forward successfully a tradition of hand churning butter, a skill the couple began demonstrating at country fairs, vintage shows and farmers’ markets.

They supply their butter to many high end restaurants and shops all over the UK and Ireland including The Fat Duck, Marcus Wareing and Fortnum and Mason.
