100% Grass Fed Butter Will Be Available In Canada Year Round 2014!
To all the Canadian fans of bullet proof coffee, we know how much of a pain it is to get top quality grass fed butter here in this country. Like you, I have started doing a bit of research to figure out how it can be done. I came across some promising leads, but one company sealed the deal. 2014 will be the year of grass fed butter in Canada!
The company is http://www.brookersmeat.com
I spoke with them and had the following questions officially answered.
What percentage of the cows diet will be grass fed? (If not 100%, what
other substances will they be consuming?)
To my knowledge, 100% grass fed
Are they fed any GMO substances?
What will the living environment of the cow be like? (cage, pasture etc):
Free range, spacious barn environment
Are the cows raised on any hormones or antibiotics? :
Estimation of when the butter will be available to consumers?:
Late April/early May
Estimation of what the price for your grass fed butter will be?:
To be determined
Will the butter be available year round?(frozen etc):
That is the plan
Where will the butter be available to purchase from?(stores, directly from
What are your current recommendations for getting the best brand of grass
fed butter from the USA (kerrygold, other brands etc), even if it means
having to drive across the border. What brand would you suggest?
Organic Valley â€“ 99% grass fed
Kerrygold â€“ Ireland, 20% grains during winter of which 3% of grains fed
during winter may contain GMO
Anchor Butter â€“ New Zealand
Allgau â€“ Germany, 100% grass/hay
Smjor â€“ Iceland, 100% grass/hay
Humboldt & Kalona â€“ USA, 20% grains during winter
Once I do a little more research in the meantime, my plan is to drive across the border to Detroit area and see if I can get my hands on pure grass fed butter.
