1966 - The BeginningCastle Dairies is established as a milk bottling dairy and Caerphilly cheese maker, supplying Bateman’s supermarkets in South Wales.

Castle Dairies is the home of Welsh butter. Our deliciously smooth and creamy butters are produced in a Welsh dairy, using only 100% Welsh cream.

Castle Dairies is a family run business and if there's one thing that the Lloyd family understands, it's cream. John Emyr Lloyd has been churning cream for over 40 years - his first job was on a dairy farm where he worked his way up from churn cleaner to wagon driver. After years of mastering every aspect of the process, John eventually bought Castle Dairies in 1986.

But the cream and butter obsession doesn't end there. Having learned his trade in New Zealand and Australia, John's son Nigel has now brought all his experience to the family business too. It's little wonder Castle Dairies produces only the finest range of salted and unsalted Welsh butters.


Our priority is to provide our customers with a high quality product which includes value for money.  This formula has been succesful as we now carry out contract processing work for some of the largest dairy companies in the UK and also supply a range of major retailers with packet butter.


Castle Dairies produces both conventional and organic bulk butter in salted and unsalted varieties.
