    Some of the butter out there that many thought was 100% grass fed, is now being reported as not 100% grass fed... and may even have GMO's.

    In that light, I'm wondering:

    1. What brand of 100% grass fed raw butter is everyone eating these days?

    2. Where/whom do you purchase it from?

    3. Why do you like this brand over others available?

    Thanks for your participation!

    As important Grass fed butter is the Zip Code in which the Cream for the Butter is produced is paramount!

    Interesting that Kerrygold may not be as pure as we thought.
    I've been getting raw dairy from 100% grass fed Jersey cows from a farmer I happen to know. Some local listings are at http://realmilk.com.

    I can it locally, from a local co-op, but it comes from a farmer 3,000 mile away. Not optimal but at least it's raw and actually is 100% grass fed.

    I have not yet found a butter made 100% grass fed where I am in Central VA. The Amish near here may be a source but I've not found one to buy yet.

    Michael McEvoy of Metabolic Healing suggested Organic Valley Pasture Butter, Cultured years ago and it was a past favorite. It's organic but not sure it is 100% grass fed.

    Favorite now and I really like the taste is Lewis Road Creamery Butter w/ Sea Salt https://lewisroadcreamery.com/pages/about-our-butter It is from New Zealand and states 100% grass fed.

    I also like Goddess Ghee their plain Ghee, https://www.goddessghee.com/shop/ghee out of Asheville, NC.
    And their Brown Butter Ghee but it tastes too good to be healthy https://www.goddessghee.com/shop/brown-butter

    Before I found Goddess Ghee 4th & Heart Grass-Fed Ghee Butter Himalayan Pink Salt https://fourthandheart.com/product/himalayan-pink-salt/ was the best tasting and easily available--says Grass Fed but does not say 100% grass fed and I've gotten away from Himalayan Pink Salt due to possible higher fluoride content

    The subject of butter always reminds me of this tongue-twister thatI learned in college speech class. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Betty_Botter

    "Betty Botter is a tongue-twister written by Carolyn Wells.[1][2] It was originally titled "The Butter Betty Bought." By the middle of the 20th century, it had become part of the Mother Goose collection of nursery rhymes.[3]"

    "Betty Botter bought some butter,
    "But," she said, "the butter's bitter;
    If I put it in my batter,
    It will make my batter bitter;
    But a bit of better butter,
    That would make my batter better."

    So she bought a bit of butter,
    Better than her bitter butter,
    And she put it in her batter,
    And the batter was not bitter;
    So it was better that Betty Botter
    Bought a bit of better butter."

    Here's to Better Butter!

    Martha, look here
    and if you find good cream (which might be more common than the farm making and selling butter), that can be made into good butter with a hand-crank or electric butter churn (or just put about half-full in a jar and shaken for a while). Butter made from raw cream especially is delicious, better than any stick butter I've tasted; if the cream is pasteurized before becoming butter or if the butter from raw cream is frozen it loses a taste that raw butter has that's especially good.

    You can find grass-fed (pastured) butter from a local dairy farmer. These farms are easier to find than you might think.
