Freddy’s Foodie Fridays Week 3!

Drumroll please………

This week’s featured food producer is none other than our old friends at Glenisk. ?Freddy and Glenisk go way back, in fact right back to when the Freddy Buttons books were launched with a wonderful, Glenisk sponsored, garden at Bloom. ?Now they were fun times!


For over 30 years, Glenisk’s philosophy towards producing fresh, nutritious food has not changed. They don’t use anything artificial – and never will. ?It’s no wonder that they are Ireland’s best loved yogurt.

Glenisk’s organic milk comes from Irish cows who eat Irish grass – no fertilisers or chemicals, just lush green grass. What could be better? And if cow milk doesn’t agree with little tummies, they also have a range of goat milk products. ?What could be better?!


We also have a recipe for you, so why not give it a go?
