The dairy produces whole, semi-skimmed, and skimmed milk in three bottle sizes. The milk comes in fresh from the farm, undergoing minimal processing within their small processing unit, before being delivered to customers across Shetland.
Their cream is produced in small batches to ensure the highest quality gets from the cows to your plate, with no additives, just real dairy cream. If you long for milk and cream that taste like they did in your childhood, Shetland Farm Dairies is just what you need.
They also make excellent lightly salted butter. It is produced each day in small handcrafted batches. No other oils or additives are used, this means it won’t be anything like the ‘spready butter’ so widely available these days. Again, it’s butter as you remember it. You can buy it from the Taste of Shetland online shop, no matter where you are in the UK.
An important ingredient in every Shetland fridge is, of course, buttermilk. It is used to produce the soft, flavoursome Shetland Bannock. The dairy staff produce small quantities of this delicious, versatile product. It’s naturally probiotic, making it a great addition to a morning smoothie and many other tasty recipes.
If you're lucky enough to live in Shetland, the dairy has milk refilling sations all over the isles. Don't compromise on quality or ethics, buy your 1 litre glass Shetland Farm Dairies bottles and start reducing the plastic waste your household creates straight away.
