Ivy House Farm Dairy
This family-run, Somerset dairy provides us with organic milk, cream and butter made with milk from their Jersey cows. It is all utterly delicious, but our favourite is the double cream. Don't be fooled if you have only used supermarket double cream - this is very thick, a beautiful creamy colour (rather than white) with a slightly sweet flavour. If you are after something less thick, then choose the pouring cream. As well as cream, we stock their whole, semi-skimmed and skimmed milk (1 pint and 1 litre sizes) and their butter.
There is a lovely page on the Ivy House website all about the Bowles family ("Every Bowles in the south west has done a stint bottling milk or potting up cream") and their beautiful cows.
