Not half and half - cream. Can only seem to find it in much smaller quantities. Any leads appreciated!!!

    This is old but probably a good place to start...Smart & Final for manufacturing cream in half-gallons, etc.

      (this will be of small help) make some phone calls, there was a distributor whose office was based out of SF's Chinatown, sold and delivered by the quart. sorry I don't recall the name. we got all our office dairy from them, relatives of a co-worker.

        You can get 1/2 gallons of Producer's brand cream at Costco.

          I have never seen gallons of cream, even in Professional Kitchens 1/2 Gallons is the largest container I have seen. Both Clover and Berkeley Farms packs in 64oz Cartons
          If you know a chef you could order from their wholesaler

            Thank you for the replies!! Realized that Smart + Final and Costco may have it - pleasantly surprised to hear that Smart + Final may get theirs from Berkeley Farms (or at least did a few years ago). Will have to check it out.
