We are a small business, owned by three close friends, who support the community. Our products are made in a cold room small batch process, to ensure the highest quality and standards for each and every batch produced. We add NO preservatives in any of our Specialty Butters.
In keeping with our All Natural philosophy we stand firm on not using any milk that contains rBST. We share concerns that rBST may contribute to increased rates of obesity, early onset puberty, and some cancers. Many countries around the world have banned its use. rBST (recombinant bovine somatotropin) is a synthetic hormone that is injected into dairy cows to trick their metabolism into producing more milk. The safety of rBST has been questioned, but is approved by the FDA.
No significant difference has been found in milk from cows treated with artificial hormones.
Grass fed butter is higher in many nutrients than butter from cows that are fed processed grain-based feeds. A higher proportion of fresh grass in a cow’s diet increases the amount of healthy fats, such as Omega-3 fatty acids and Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA).
