The legend of Myrtleford Butter Factory's incredible butter recipe lives on with Gippsland Jersey
by Gippsland Jersey
Naomi Ingleton was Australia’s Queen of BUTTER and proved herself years ago as the biggest and best makers of artisanal or cultured butter in Australia.
Naomi (originally a Gippsland girl) is almost single-handedly responsible for the growing appreciation among Australians that butter doesn’t have to taste like butter blocks you buy from the supermarket.
In 2009, after the Black Saturday fires devastated Victoria, including areas around Beechworth, the tourists stayed away from her cafe in the old Myrtleford Butter Factory. She knew that for her business to survive she needed to create a product that could be sold outside the region, beyond Victoria and even exported.
It’s serendipity that a decade later, Naomi sold her butter churn and award winning recipe and handed over the butter batten (just as the East Gippsland bushfires were raging!)
Naomi’s award winning cultured butter recipe has been slightly tweaked to accommodate the use of our beautiful jersey cream ... which just makes Naomi’s butter recipe even more incredible! We can’t wait for you all to try it, because we know you’ll love it as much as we do!
We’ve been churning jersey cultured butter for over a year now and we’ve been holding onto your email address (that she passed on by the way) waiting for the right time to make contact.
It gives us much confidence to be supplying butter to some of Melbourne’s top famous chefs such as Andrew McConnell and Hugh Allen.
