Kalona SuperNatural butter took 1st and 2nd place in the Iowa Quality Dairy Products Contest at the 2017 Iowa State Fair. Our Lightly Salted butter took the 1st place blue ribbon and our unsalted butter earned the 2nd place.
Entries are judged by a panel of experienced entry panel judges based in the Midwest. The panel evaluated the technical and aesthetic merits of each entry using standard criteria. Both butter varieties earned the same awards in 2016. We are thrilled to once again have our product recognized at the Fair!
How Our Organic, Grass-fed Butter is Made
Kalona SuperNatural™ butter is fresh, creamy, and delicious because we make it the old-fashioned way. We start with organic milk from grass-fed cows on sustainable family farms. We separate the cream and churn it into butter almost immediately after the milk arrives at the creamery.
We create our butter in small batches using a hands-on method rarely seen in the 21st century. Each batch requires the butter maker’s careful supervision to ensure that it turns out just right. After the butter is molded into sticks, it is hand-packed into cartons and ready for the retail shelf.
