Black Butter Making

Embrace the community spirit and participate in the ancient art of making Black Butter which takes place over three days at The Elms, the headquarters of the National Trust for Jersey. Apples grown for cider were once Jersey's main crop. Today fewer cider apples are grown but the making of black butter (Le Nièr Beurre) carries on.
