- how do I sell more cream (this is not a wind up)
being a milk man and working on a farm, we have a surplus of double cream,up untill now the owner has been throwing it away, crazy I know but he has, so I asked if I could find a market for it could we split the money so he said ok, I have since in the last month or two managed to sell on average 260 pints a week, (we have about 650 a week going spare)
my market has been restraunts and bakers shop that tend to use a lot of cream in there food, my problem is that i have now exhautsted all my restraunts and bakers in my local area
so, here is where i could do with some help I live in marple bridge and I just wondered if there was some way of getting a list of all restraunts in say a 10 mile radius of me, I really only wanted to target italian and english because they do tend to use a lot of it
any help would be greatPosted 6 years ago
How about a cheese maker who is experiencing low yields from low fat content in milk? Look for people who are making triple or double cream cheeses perhaps. Depending on where you are based we can sometimes use extra cream for our blue cheeses. Just spotted your location. I’ll ahve a word with the cheesemaker and see what he thinks depends on volume etc. Is it friesian or jersey?
Other options are churn it into butter and again sell on farmers markets. Cheaper and easier than starting up cheese manufacture.Posted 6 years agomtb2020Member
When you say cream – is it ready to use on food – ie on mince pies and stuff and Xmas pud etc. Because you could just place an ad in the local press and invite people to come along and buy it from your farm. And maybe try to get some free editorial aswell from a friendly reporter or two.
Don’t be shy, but try approaching local TV – Granada, BBC for North West, local radio, Cheshire Life and whatever your local paper is, and even the Manchester Evening News. Throwing that much away and appealing to people to buy it from you or find a new use for it, should certainly make them take note I would think.
You might also get some interest from asking to post adverts in local libraries and sending out messages through local volunteer centres and or at hospitals. You could say people can buy a pint and get one free or something like that – and maybe say some of the money you make will go to charity or something that’s bound to get more media interest then.Posted 6 years agoBunnyhopSubscriber
Christmas is coming up, cream is a must for this time of the year.
What about contacting all the Bed and Breakfast places near/in the Peak District.
Or try and get a stall at the Christmas Festival in Marple or Marple Bridge.
Also try the Ladies that make cup cakes and wedding cakes from home.Posted 6 years ago
