What brand of Pasture Butter do you fancy?

Answered on September 12, 2014
Created March 02, 2011 at 8:17 PM

There's lot of comments about pasture butter, but I am curious as to what brand is most popular across PaleoHacks.

Somehow, Kerrygold seems to have a very strong foothold. I'm not sure if it's cause it's just widely available or what but so many people trust that brand. I know on their site it says their cows are grass fed, but nowhere on their packaging does it claim "grass-fed", "pastured", or even "organic", which I think is rather strange.

Weigh in with the brand you use and let's see which one gets the most tally marks! I will wait for a bit to calculate the totals.

THE RESULTS! - A 3-way TIE for 1st place!

Edit: Rather than post it here, someone suggested that I make it a click-able link.

not bad but no KG. I use both if I run out of KG and can only buy up the street.

sarah-ann. Dr K is the one who says it tested at zero. I'd like to see it too. I wonder if the length of trip time (from Ireland to the states) makes K2 less potent.

It the only organic grass fed butter that I found so far in my region (since local farmers have little respect for grass-feeding). Unfortunately, only semi-salted is avaible. Still didn't bought it, but surely try it soon.

but the enforcement of these laws is pretty dangerous for dairy farmers, every time I have bought raw milk its had to be pretty hush hush and twice now my dairy sources have been "busted" once in WI and once in IL.

hmm, I've not heard of any strong arm tactics from Organic Valley, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was over the raw milk selling. My absolute favorite dairy farm, Blue Marble Dairy in WI (most freaking incredible heavy cream ever) was forced out of business after Wisconsin recalled their products due to the fact that "it may not have been fully pasteurized" because "an enzyme was discovered in the milk that should have been destroyed with pasteurization." I used to buy Blue Marble at the farmers market, along with a crowd that would have surely paid for raw milk. Ridiculous laws.

here's a press fact sheet from the kerrygold site that states their butter is "entirely grass fed". Having been to Ireland, I find that very easy to believe. It also mentions, which I never knew, that their Unsalted butter is cultured but their salted is sweet cream.

a representative from Kerrygold told me in person once that all their butter is 100% grassfed. Apparently they've realized there is a market for it. I think it's some of the best butter you can buy.

Yah I read that too, but that's on their website. I wanna see it on the product. I want to see them use that perceived 'truth' in their favor and declare it. A big percentage of their sales of butter come from people who believe it's grass-fed, from people who are looking for pasture butter. If I ran that company, and was able to claim that, I'd wake up to that reality and use it as an advantage over those brands that aren't. So, alas, skepticism sets in.

I was curious about their cows being grass fed and the following is a direct copy from their website From Green to Gold Some call Ireland the island of forty shades of green. The winds, the rain, and the warming influence of the Gulf Stream all contribute to the year-round lushness of our homeland. It also contributes to the year-round diet of our grass fed cows who in turn produce the sweetest, richest milk in the world. It's the reason our butter tastes silkier and creamier and glows a healthy, golden yellow like the sun. http://www.kerrygold.com/usa/product_butter.php

you talkin bout Kerrygold? Well if that's "the way it is", they need to get with the times and understand if they have an international presense where that's not always "the way it is", they should squash the questioning by declaration. It's simple. Besides, why does Dr K say that Kerrygold tested at zero for K2. What kind of green grass pasture butter is that?

I do NOT buy anything from organic Valley.

This is America GD it. We don't need BS from companies like them.

Now I'm suspicious TSC is artificially sending traffic here. Pastry chef, Pound cakes and cookies? Account created a few days ago? Obviously you're in the wrong forum. The butter may indeed be excellent, I haven't tried it. I am partial to KG, and do like it marginally better than Smjör, also like OV when the alternatives aren't available. Sadly here in the AZ desert it's kinda hard to find locally produced pastured butter.

I just saw this at Whole Foods. The guy working that section says it's brand new and that they just got it in. The packaging looks rich and shiney, especially the bright green unsalted version. I'll definitely try it but I am a bit disappointed in the price. $3.99 per half pound. That's more than Organic Valley.

She actually switched us back to real butter (mostly) when I was young after a nutritionist gave a talk at our church. Looking back, the guy was mostly right! Dad, however, is very offended that we no longer think normal butter is good enough. :-D

It does taste very "goaty" to me. I've never tried to cook on it, because as I said it is quite expensive, and I "burn" less expensive cows butter. I usually add some to steamed or boiled veggies.

Jack- It really is creamy- and flavorful! Kerrygold almost seems greasy in comparison, if that gives you any idea. And definitely, if you ever get out to the East Coast, it's worth going out of your way to get. Especially if you find the really dark yellow tubs (it does vary with the season). Mari- TSC so rocks. But would you believe that I've never been able to get their cream? I didn't see it on our one trip to the store, and the local farmer's market stopped carrying it before I got over my fear of fat. We all love Pequea Valley Yogurt too- made with TSC milk. ;-)

It's $4.99 where I live, which is why I buy Woodstock Farms (organic and semi-pastured) for anything I need a lot of butter for, and save the Kerrygold and local butters for dishes where the butter flavor is important.

at whole foods in san diego, regular price of OV is $5.99/pound. Kerry gold is usually about $2.79 for a half pound in most stores, including TJs. So it's very close, but sometimes Whole Foods runs a special at like $5.19 per pound of OV. We're talking pennies here though, so basically, I say they are right about the same price. Then you're left with just choosing one over the other for different reasons than price.

I like Kerrygold (available, not expensive).

I like the way 20 packs of kerrygold fill the door of the refrigerator. Makes it look like a gold treasure. Which it is, of course.

I also like the face of the people who take a look inside my refrigerator... ;)

I do NOT buy anything from organic Valley. OV used strong arm Mafia style treats to their wonderful clean dairy farmers they produce raw milk and sell to public from their farm to stop selling anything they produce except to them at their set price. This is America GD it. We don't need BS from companies like them.

but the enforcement of these laws is pretty dangerous for dairy farmers, every time I have bought raw milk its had to be pretty hush hush and twice now my dairy sources have been "busted" once in WI and once in IL.

hmm, I've not heard of any strong arm tactics from Organic Valley, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was over the raw milk selling. My absolute favorite dairy farm, Blue Marble Dairy in WI (most freaking incredible heavy cream ever) was forced out of business after Wisconsin recalled their products due to the fact that "it may not have been fully pasteurized" because "an enzyme was discovered in the milk that should have been destroyed with pasteurization." I used to buy Blue Marble at the farmers market, along with a crowd that would have surely paid for raw milk. Ridiculous laws.

No one else eats Smjor?? Truthfully, I find very little difference between butters. But one anonymous commentor says...

"I LOVE KerryGold...and I too did this little taste test just to see....KerryGold is truly an amazing butter -- and I will always buy it....but this Smj??r is just in another league. When you go from Land-O-Lakes to Kate's (a great respectable organic butter) to KerryGold to Smj??r -- then you've climbed the Butter Stairway to Heaven...."

I'll definitely try it but I am a bit disappointed in the price. $3.99 per half pound. That's more than Organic Valley.

Hands down, the best pastured butter that I've ever had is Trickling Springs Creamery (Chambersburg, PA). Then, it's a toss up between Kerrygold and my local raw butter which, interestingly, are the same price. My mother totally agrees with the TSC followed by Kerrygold, and reminds me every time I see her that she wants me to bring her 10 lbs of Trickling Springs the next chance we get to go to Chambersburg even though I bring her a half pound of Kerrygold almost every month. :-)

She's never had my raw butter, and neither of us has had Smjor. WoodStock Farms and Natural by Nature are good, but neither are totally pastured, but they're both cheaper so I buy them for bulk use.

The Amish Roll butter in my local Amish natural foods store looks yellow enough to be pastured, and it's a lot cheaper than the others, but I haven't asked yet if it's pastured. OV pastured butter isn't available in my area, and I've never seen Anchor butter.

ETA: We have a trip to TSC planned in a couple of weeks, but in the meantime, I thought ya'll might like to see my local farm's raw butter. The raw butter is in the small container (I separate it so that I don't have to thaw it all at once), contrasted with a bar of Kerrygold. Sorry- I can't get it to load in my comment.

Jack- It really is creamy- and flavorful! Kerrygold almost seems greasy in comparison, if that gives you any idea. And definitely, if you ever get out to the East Coast, it's worth going out of your way to get. Especially if you find the really dark yellow tubs (it does vary with the season). Mari- TSC so rocks. But would you believe that I've never been able to get their cream? I didn't see it on our one trip to the store, and the local farmer's market stopped carrying it before I got over my fear of fat. We all love Pequea Valley Yogurt too- made with TSC milk. ;-)

Trickling Springs is the BEST! As a pastry chef, I love it in pound cakes and butter cookies. Such a rich flavor!

Now I'm suspicious TSC is artificially sending traffic here. Pastry chef, Pound cakes and cookies? Account created a few days ago? Obviously you're in the wrong forum. The butter may indeed be excellent, I haven't tried it. I am partial to KG, and do like it marginally better than Smjör, also like OV when the alternatives aren't available. Sadly here in the AZ desert it's kinda hard to find locally produced pastured butter.

I got raw butter from the Amish guys once, $10 a pint/lb. Fucking nuts. So delicious, and practically orange. It also tasted like cheese, so, bonus.

We actually did a side-by-side blind taste test of Kerrygold vs Organic Valley pastured the other day with the husband. And while I understand this is totally subjective, we found Kerrygold to be slightly superior: more smooth and creamy, while OV tasted more greasy and bland in comparison.

It might have been the salt ratio as well. We tried both salted kinds, and Kerrygold tasted a touch more salty.

I live not an hours drive from where the kerrygold cows are pastured. It's next to an area known as 'The golden vale', so named for the incredibly lush pastures. It is definitely grassfed, with some hay in winter.

Where is the data that it tested zero for K2?

sarah-ann. Dr K is the one who says it tested at zero. I'd like to see it too. I wonder if the length of trip time (from Ireland to the states) makes K2 less potent.

It the only organic grass fed butter that I found so far in my region (since local farmers have little respect for grass-feeding). Unfortunately, only semi-salted is avaible. Still didn't bought it, but surely try it soon.

Humboldt Creamery pasture based butter. Their new packaging says "Pasture Based Butter" right on the front, although it doesn't show that in this picture here. I think we covered all the major brands, unless anyone else knows of another. I can't upvote this since it's my own answer but I use this brand regularly so I will add my own vote to the tally.

I use Kerry Gold simply because it is relatively widely available and I don't really have access to other more local sources.

The best pasture butter I've had is Smjor - which has the same non-local problem as Kerry Gold, but also takes everything good about Kerry Gold and raised it a level.

There is Amish butter available where I am. They have it at a local dairy where they sell their own unhomogenized milk, and cheeses but do not produce their own butter. I have not tried it yet but it is usually nice and yellow and there is no coloring listed in the ingredients so I have to assume it is at least partially grass fed. Any comments or info from anyone who has had it?

The color is white. I don't know, but you can read what Meynberg says regarding this http://meyenberg.com/index.php?page=faq#Treatment%20of%20Goats I don't know why Katie didn't find any difference. It does taste very "goaty" to me. I've never tried to cook on it, because as I said it is quite expensive, and I "burn" less expensive cows butter. I usually add some to steamed or boiled veggies.

(18452)

at whole foods in san diego, regular price of OV is $5.99/pound. Kerry gold is usually about $2.79 for a half pound in most stores, including TJs. So it's very close, but sometimes Whole Foods runs a special at like $5.19 per pound of OV. We're talking pennies here though, so basically, I say they are right about the same price. Then you're left with just choosing one over the other for different reasons than price.
