USA heavy cream vs UK double cream

BevRS | May 2, 201211:17 AM     201

I am British but sometimes spend a few weeks in the US. All I can get in stores there is "heavy cream" which is heat-treated and tastes horrible as a result....
In the UK we can get fresh double cream (which is, as the title suggests, fresh, and pasteurised, but not ultra heat treated like heavy cream). It has a higher fat content than heavy cream - it is delicious and readily available.
I wonder whether there is anywhere (dairies, delicatessens, farms?) where it's possible to get cream that hasn't been through the ultra heat treating process with the subsequent flavor issue?
Any help on this would be much appreciated.
