Butter Up Your Baking for the Holidays

The holiday season goes hand and hand with the smell of fresh home-baked scrumptious cookies, Aunt Agnes’ traditional fruitcake, and family recipes passed down from generation to generation. Those treats surely wouldn’t taste the same without delicious, creamy butter.

Butter simply makes everything taste better. But not all butter is created equal. That’s why we wanted to share with you a few reasons why our certified organic butter provides the perfect balance and right texture for sweet and savory delights – and all your baking needs. Our Kalona SuperNatural lightly salted and unsalted butter varieties are made with the freshest, highest quality milk to help you create the very best meals and desserts. 

Did you know that butter with high butterfat content makes the most flavorful baked goods? At Kalona SuperNatural, we go above and beyond the gold standard to create butter that has 85% or more butterfat. Similar to European-style butter, the result is a richer, creamier butter – which is the perfect ingredient for those scrumptious sugar cookies, flaky biscuits, and pie crusts. 
Join us as we take you on our organic butter journey from the pasture to your kitchen.

Blissful Cows Make Better Butter

That melt-in-your-mouth buttery goodness in our Kalona SuperNatural butter comes from happy cows. These cows graze on pastures and roam free along the hillsides of our small, family-owned Amish and Mennonite farm. In fact, our pastures contain more than a dozen varieties of plants and grasses, which provide the nutrition power in the grass-fed milk they produce. 

Recent studies have shown that milk from grass-fed, happy cows can provide top-quality nutritional value. Additionally, butter made with pasture-grazed milk provides essential nutrients such as Vitamins A, D, and K2, the antioxidant Beta Carotene, and omega fatty acids.

Honoring Butter Churning Traditions of the Past 

We take our time when it comes to creating the best tasting butter by using a hands-on method that is rarely heard of in the 21st century. This traditional process provides you with the best butter for your baking needs.

Butter production at Farmers Creamery

As soon as the fresh milk arrives at the creamery, we separate the cream and pasteurize it in small batches. Our team closely monitors the temperature controls ensuring that the cream is never heated over 145 degrees. This traditional, low-temperature pasteurization method retains the farm-fresh flavor and beneficial bacteria our bodies need. We employ specialized butter makers who supervise each batch to make sure the cream is churned and crafted to perfection. After the butter is molded into sticks, it is hand-packed into cartons and ready for the retail shelf. 

Have a happy holiday baking season and don’t forget to pick up some of our milk for those cookies!
