Shamrock Farms Heavy Whipping Cream starts with pure, wholesome milk from our family of local farms, and artificial growth hormones are never added. Our milk is then crafted into rich, decadent heavy cream uses a hands-on process. Perfecting the craft of dairy is our obsession, and the result is high-quality heavy cream that will elevate your creations.

Shamrock Farms Heavy Whipping Cream:

  • Always farm-fresh taste, quality ingredients, and superior performance
  • Proprietary formula developed with chefs’ needs in mind
  • Our heavy whipping cream whips faster to almost 2 times the girth and holds its peak longer
  • Because our heavy whipping cream is thicker, you won’t have to worry about breaking or separating when adding it to a sauce
