Butter Making Documentary

Date: 21-10-2021

This Butter making documentary offers an insight into the science of how butter is made and various methods of making it. This science week intergenerational project, which was led out by Mayo Comhairle na nÓg in collaboration with Age Friendly Mayo, The Museum of Country Life, South West Mayo Development Company and Mayo County Council, shows us how we can easily make butter at home, the science behind making it, as well as some of the best tips and social history around making it.

Why is Irish butter better and why is it such a ‘sought after’ product? The documentary will also give us an insight into the utensils used in bygone days to make butter. Irish butter is an important food both in terms of our health and our economy. Why not learn how to make your own butter through this documentary and discover how you can reduce your carbon footprint by doing so.

This Documentary is ideal for primary and secondary school children in particular but will be available and accessible to all. 

This amazing documentary will Premiere on our Facebook page on Monday November 8th at 9am. If you miss it at 9am, you can view it on Facebook any time after that. Visit
