The cream made in Normandy has always been exceptional.
In its farmland, where the green fields disappear into the horizon, the dairy-making knowledge of the people has become unique, and so you could say, that Normandy is the birthplace of cream.
MILK, A 100% NATURAL PRODUCT
Milk is the basic ingredient of cream and butter.
Their production depends simply on concentrating the fat in the milk. This concentration is varies, depending on the product. However, the principle of milk production has not changed in five thousand years! The cow grazes on the grass, ruminates and secretes the milk – after having given birth to a little calf, of course – and it only remains to milk it!
WHEN COWS ARE OUTDOORS,
THE CREAM IS BETTER
In Normandy, the cows spend longer outdoors than indoors, and they eat grass. They spend in average 210 days outdoors (from April to October). They spend the rest of the time in the cowshed, because like us they are sensitive to cold and humidity.
FODDER FOR DAIRY CATTLE
Dairy cattle eat grass in the meadows. Their diet is often supplemented with protein (frequently produced on site) in the form of corn silage or lucerne to provide energy.
100% of the milk producers adhere to the charter for good farming practices.
