Here in Devon we are extremely lucky to have so many fantastic local producers on our doorstep – from artisan cheeses and bespoke blended teas to quality sausages and handmade puddings. In a time when consumers are increasingly concerned with low food miles and the provenance of their food, locality and the ‘shop local’ campaign have never been more apt. With this in mind we are producing a blog series on our local producers and their delicious products, this week focusing on Sutton Lucy Dairy.
Sutton Lucy Dairy was established in 2017 by husband and wife Rebecca and Phillip Cook. Following the closure of two local dairies they began sourcing milk and cream for their farm shop in Honiton from dairies in Cornwall. However customers soon began to question why they were not stocking Devonshire products and the idea of opening their own dairy was realised. Today they have two herds of Holstein and Jersey cows and produce a variety of creams, yogurts and milk for their now thriving business.
The dairy’s ethos focuses on providing the best care and respect for their cows which results in delicious, high quality milk. We currently stock their thick and creamy natural yogurts which are available in both 500g and 140g pots and their single and double creams which are available in 142ml and 284ml bottles. The full range is available to view here: http://www.iscafoods.co.uk/sutton-lucy-dairy/. We can also stock their various flavoured yogurts including our favourite lemon curd yogurt and sweet toffee yogurts although these do require a pre-order.
Sutton Lucy Dairy’s wonderfully creamy yogurts and luxurious creams are increasingly popular among our customers for their delicious flavour, locality and animal welfare ethos.
