Hatchland Dairy Egg Nog?

Infomaniac Nov 30, 2011 04:12 PM

Cider Hill Farm was my place and now they are closed for the winter.
Does anyone know a place in the north shore or Merrimack Vallley area selling Hatchland Dairy Egg Nog?

    Don't know that one. Got some High Lawn Farm (Lee, MA) egg nog from Russo's this past weekend: pretty good, but still not approaching my favorite, from Richardson's Dairy (Dracut, MA).

      Do you mean Richardson's in Middleton? If so I'm not far and will check them out.

        There's a Richardson's Ice Cream with outlets in Middleton and Reading (in Jordan's Furniture), supplied by their own dairy farm in Middleton. As far as I can tell, it's not connected with Richardson's Dairy in Dracut.

          Thank you and the person who works for me knows where this Richardson's is in Dracut. Looking forward to comparing the Egg Nog from Richardson's and Shaw Farm, both in Dracut.

        Someone who works for me lives in Dracut and is going to pick me up some tonight along with a pound of butter. I'm excited!!!

        If you have a chance, try the Crescent Ridge eggnog. Am using all my spare calories on it at the moment.

          WOW!!!....nice egg nog parlay in Dracut.

          I had a chance this weekend to try some egg nog both from Dracut, Richardson's Dairy and Shaw Farm's. I like Shaw's better than the Hatchland brand I was getting a Cider Hill Farm. Even the french toast I made with it came out better.

          Richardson's egg nog was really special though. It had a nice fresh smell, a smooth creamy feel, almost like melted ice cream in your mouth. It was so good, I couldn't wait to add some schnapps to it.
          Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

            Egg non on the North Shore:
            Puleos Dairy from Salem has been selling it in glass bottles at Henrys in Beverly,
            Richardsons in Middleton Ma, is very creamy and the best price,
            there is also High Lawn Farms great product but there are some other option produced even more locally. Hatchland Dairy also produces for some other home delivery companys int he Boston area.
