Jersey Girl Dairy
As the mist rises from the lush green paddocks in the Kerry Valley, the Jersey girls make their way to the dairy for the morning milking. They take their time, slowly meandering along the cattle tracks towards the dairy yards. The pulsing sound of the milking machines and the unlatching of the dairy gate heralds the start to their day.
Dave ushers them in two by two, a routine the girls know well and look forward to each morning. Each cow has her own personality, her own particular routine, her own way of interacting within the herd, and with Dave. He knows them, and their health and happiness rely on this intuitive relationship.
The Jersey Girl herd of just 20 cows graze on lush natural pasture and legumes, free from pesticides and chemicals, and rich in nutrients. Our focus is on quality; the quality of our soil, the quality of care for our animals, and the quality of our products.
Respecting the traditions of the past but embracing our own hopes and dreams, we are respectfully carrying on the century-old family tradition of dairy farming. Our Jersey Girl brand now represents our full milk production as we turn our backs on the unsustainable world of supplying a milk processor.
We are building a viable future for our micro dairy farm, where quality trumps quantity every time. Integrity, honesty and authenticity in farming have a place in the commercial world; our joy is in providing bespoke farming experiences and outstanding products for you and your family. We love what we do, and our products represent that.
The Jersey Girl Range
Jersey Girl cultured butter, crème fraiche, double cream, and yoghurt, made right here on the farm, by the farmers. Rich and creamy gourmet ice creams.
Our liquid gold Jersey milk is treated with utmost respect to emphasise its terroir.
Enjoy a thick layer of cream atop our Jersey Girl Cream Top Milk. Carefully spoon out the creamy golden goodness and enjoy in all its glory or gently shake so the cream mixes fully into the milk for that super smooth and creamy velvet mouth feel. We won’t judge. We know whichever way you choose, you’ll be rewarded with honest, old-fashioned goodness.
The scene is reminiscent of days gone by when early generations of the family sold cream to the local butter factory and raised pigs on skim milk.
When the milking is done and the Jersey girls make their way to their day pasture, the golden cream is taken just metres into the farm creamery to be slowly pasteurised. This golden deliciousness is then packaged as double cream or left to sit happily culturing for up to 30 hours to develop its rich flavour – now decadent crème fraiche. Wickedly rich and creamy, our award-winning crème fraiche sits happily as the star of a beautiful meal, or as a quiet yet distinctive addition to homemade pumpkin soup or lemon curd pancakes.
The butter is then kneaded and washed by hand to remove the excess buttermilk before the addition of Olsson’s Red Gum Smoked Salt and the kneading process continues. Each block of butter is hand shaped before being carefully wrapped like a gift to be shared amongst friends.
Our salted cultured butter is no country bumpkin, equally at home on a slice of freshly-baked sourdough as it is on a cheeseboard with crackers. Simple bread and butter will never be the same again.
We know the ingredients in our ice creams are the best you’ll find, but it’s what’s not in them that makes our ice creams even better. You won’t find a preservative, artificial flavour, or colour in sight – just the highest quality natural ingredients respectfully crafted into the most delicious, creamy ice cream.
We know our Jersey Girls, and we pride ourselves on the quality products made from their rich and creamy milk, right here on the farm. But when it comes to ice cream, we’re happy to leave it to the experts. Our partnership with Lick! brings the skills of us as farmers and producers, together with a team of passionate ice cream connoisseurs to craft our Jersey Girl double cream, crème fraiche, butter, and buttermilk into the most amazing ice cream you’ll ever try.
