We are Abernethy Butter

Allison and Will Abernethy inherited their butter making skills from previous family generations and in 2005 decided to turn what was a hobby into a family business.

Initially going to local agricultural and vintage shows to demonstrate how cream is churned and turned into butter, they soon realised there was a demand for their product.

The early market of Northern Ireland has now expanded to many prestigious shops and restaurants throughout the UK and beyond.
