Does anyone find grass-fed cow butter in the grocery stores?

Certainly, they are ruminants (although they are browsers, not grazers). The fact that they eat shoots, twigs, some fruits&vegetables doesn't make grains a suitable fodder (and the term "grass-fed" concerning goats implies they don't get grains). The problem is, most farmers (nearly everyone in my region) don't "understand" it. I also red comments from goat owners here on PaleoHacks where they were repeating today's conventional wisdom that dairy goats *NEED* grains to fulfil their extremely high energy needs, you see. Of course, they'll have "extremely high energy needs" if you overmilk them!

are goats ruminants where the term grassfed would apply? I hear people say "grassfed pigs" quite a bit and I'm like, pigs can eat a whole variety of stuff with no ill effects.

I'm so upset. I went to my local Wegmans TWICE in the same week and they were out... I settled for Plugra. It's tasty though.

Without sounding like a distant echo of previous posts - Kerrygold. But I'm also partial to the Yeo Valley organic grass fed butter as well.

Kerrygold! Comes in half pound green or silver wrapped foil packages. It's great stuff.

In the UK nearly all butter is grass fed. We can buy blocks of beef dripping (tallow) in the supermarket too! :-)

How about any good organic grass-fed goat butter?? Anyone have any good suggestions?!?! I'm a huge Kerrygold fan as well.

The favorite in our household is Kerrygold (Irish) but Organic Valley and Grass Point Farms (USA), and Anchor (New Zealand are all good options.

A good post on grass-fed butter: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/grass-fed-butter/

I buy Kerrygold or Organic Valley Pasture Raised (only available seasonally). I can get Kerrygold at The Fresh Market and both are available at my local Whole Foods.
