Why Farm Fresh Butter?

Whole, fresh food is something that many people today are yearning for in their diets. And no matter how you slice it or spread it, farm fresh butter is a great alternative to other vegetable oils and processed foods in your kitchen. We firmly believe in our farm fresh salted butter and it’s wholesomeness for you and your family. 

When we create our salted butter it is made with only two ingredients – cream and salt — that’s it! Compared to other products on the market, that is a very simple, yet wholesome product.

Generally, foods that are natural are not only healthier for you, but they also tend to have a lower carbon footprint. This is because the steps to create these natural products are lower than their processed counterparts, meaning it’s also better for the environment. Our milk only travels 3 miles to our processing facility! So you can feel good about your food and where it comes from. Win-win!

There are very easy ways to substitute and reduce the amount of vegetable oils in your diet and increase fresh butter:

  • Start using butter to grease your frying pan.
  • Use butter to grease baking pans and sheets.
  • See if the recipe you are using calls for butter as a substitute.
  • Sautee all your vegetables in butter for bonus flavor!

Want to experiment even farther with butter?

  • Try making your own butter at home. Our whipping cream is a beautiful base for all kinds of delicious butter!
  • Use our signature salted butter to create compound butters. There are endless opportunities for flavorful butters like cowboy butter, sweet honey and cinnamon, savory with fresh herbs and lemon, or even fruit with your favorite preserves!

So the next time you are at the creamery, grab a pound of our salted butter to try for yourself. We think you will find the taste addicting, and piece of mind about your food. Don’t live in Eastern Iowa? Try searching for a local creamery in your area that makes butter and show some love for local. Or if you’re feeling really daring try making your own.
