A Civic lunch in the presence of Her Majesty The Queen and Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Sussex
The Assembly Room, Town Hall, Chester – 14th June 2018
We are all very proud to announce that Charlies Cheshire butter which he makes here at Reaseheath Food Centre has been used in the recent menu for Her Majesty The Queen, and Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Sussex when they attended a recent Civic lunch at Chester Town Hall.
Charlie is a third generation dairy farmer who along with his wife and two young children run the “Crosshillocks” pedigree herd, milking 120 cows.
With an enthusiasm to get people to appreciate real butter and the journey it takes to get to the consumer he prides himself on the welfare and health of a dairy herd.
Churned by Charlie using fresh pasteurised cream, the cream is churned until it separates into butter grains and butter milk using Reaseheath Food Centre butter churn.
Charlie has been churning butter for ten years now and uses just a small amount of salt to give Charlie’s butter that kick that makes it melt in your mouth.
‘Our butter is churned differently to most butters on the market today as we use a small mechanical churn where the buttermilk is extracted from the butter grains so giving it that golden colour and quality taste.’
