In order to source more locally produced goods, we are proud to announce that from this week we will be using Adare Farm country fresh milk to make our crêpe batter .
It is a fresh local product coming direct from a family farm in Adare.
Adare farm country fresh milk is pasteurised but non-homogenised which gives the milk a signature rich and creamy texture and taste.
What is pasteurisation? Pasteurisation is a compromise. You can
kill all bacteria and make milk sterile but this significantly and
adversely affects the taste and nutritional value. When milk is
pasteurised it is heated to a high enough temperature to kill certain

Top chef says Limerick and Milk Market deserves praise for its promotion of food Foodies across the region are set for a mouthwatering treat next week as the country’s most popular

of local producers and suppliers who will be exhibiting on the night as
