Butter is a traditional fat that has been consumed for thousands of years in cultures all over the world. When the anti-saturated fat campaign started in the US, many people stopped using butter and switched to margarines made from hydrogenated vegetable oils, high in trans-fatty acids. Trans-fatty acids are now banned in some European countries, and food manufactures in the U.S. must list all trans-fats used in their products as people seek to avoid them.

Butter is rich in short and medium chain fatty acids, including even small amounts of lauric acid. It is rich in antioxidants as well, in the form of beta carotene, vitamin E, and selenium. It is one of the best sources of vitamin A. Because living grass is richer in vitamins E, A, and beta-carotene than stored hay or standard dairy diets, butter from dairy cows grazing on fresh pasture is also richer in these important nutrients. The naturally golden color of grass-fed butter is a clear indication of its superior nutritional value. (Searles, SK et al, “Vitamin E, Vitamin A, and Carotene Contents of Alberta Butter.” Journal of Diary Science, 53(2) 150–154.)

By nature, cows are grazing (grass-eating) animals. 85–95% of dairy cows today are raised in confinement on a diet of grain, particularly corn, because it is far more cost-efficient for agribusiness. This grain-based diet can cause changes in the ph in cows, creating many abnormal physiological conditions in the cow which can increase the need for the use antibiotics. Many of these dairy cows are fed a variety of growth hormones to increase milk production. Most grocery store shelves offer the dairy products from these types of cows. Butter from grain-fed cows is very high in the omega-6 fatty acids, of which most people are consuming too much due to the high amounts of omega 6 vegetable oils and foods in the US diet. The omega-3 fatty acids in most conventional dairy products today are very low, and most people are dangerously deficient in them. Milk from grass-fed cows has a much higher content of omega-3 fatty acids.

The CLA Advantage
Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) is a naturally occurring free fatty acid found mainly in meat and dairy products in small amounts. CLA was discovered by accident in 1978 by Michael W. Pariza at the University of Wisconsin while looking for mutagen formations in meat during cooking. The most abundant source of natural CLA is the meat and dairy products of grass-fed animals. Research conducted since 1999 shows that grazing animals have from 3–5 times more CLA than animals fattened on grain in a feedlot. Simply switching from grain-fed to grass-fed products can greatly increase your intake of CLA. (Dhiman, T. R., G. R. Anand, et al. (1999). “Conjugated linoleic acid content of milk from cows fed different diets.” J Dairy Sci 82(10): 2146–56.)

Good butter made from the milk of cows grazing on grass is hard to find these days. We offer here some of the best butter found anywhere in the world: all from the milk of grass-fed cows. Good butter from grass-fed cows is very distinct in its rich yellow color, due to high amounts of beta carotene.

Customer Comments:

Excellent order process, super fast delivery, really friendly customer service. I love Tropical Traditions products. I order their virgin coconut oil regularly and use their vinegar, coconut flakes and shreds, chocolate, tomato sauce, household cleaners, eggs, fresh meat especially chickens. It's all really fine stuff. I've been using them for years and would encourage anyone to give them a try. Sue - San Rafael, CA

I have been shopping through Tropical Traditions since Jan. 2005 and have found them to be an outstanding company in every aspect of their business. They are prompt to respond to questions or to rectify any errors and it is always done with respect and kindness. Their products are excellent and I am able to purchase many of the same organic products at a better price than I can purchase them at the store, and I save the time and money of driving to the store. They also offer excellent products of their own that can't be purchased locally. I promise you will not be disappointed. They are tops in my book! Shirley - Delaware, OH

Allgau German Butter - New!

Allgäu Alps in Germany photo
The Allgäu Alps in Germany. An "alp" refers to a high mountain pasture where cows are brought to for grazing.
 Image source.

For many generations the family farms in the Allgäu region of Southern Germany have fed their family cows only grass and grass hay. Using their local breed, the Allgäu brown cow, the herdsmen in the Allgäu mountain region safely guide the cows down from the mountains to spend the winters in their cozy barns, and are led back up to the Alps every spring.

The local Allgäu brown cow is specially suited for the high mountain altitudes of the Bavarian Alps, where they graze on lush green grass all summer long. The butter from this pristine region has more cream than most butters, and is famous throughout Europe.

Now from the family farms of Allgäu this handcrafted tradition is presented to you and your family. This pure German Butter is one of creamiest butters you will ever taste!

  • 100% grass and grass hay (winter) fed cows
  • RBST Free milk
  • Cows graze at a high elevation on small family Alpine farms
  • 2 ingredients cream and cultures

Grass-fed Organic Sweet Cream Butter

Natural by Nature Sweet Cream Organic ButterNatural by Nature Organic Sweet Cream Whipped Butter

The milk used to produce this high quality whipped butter comes from small family farms in Pennsylvania. These farmers do not use pesticides or herbicides on their farms. Their cows are not given any antibiotics or synthetic hormones. The farm and processors are inspected and certified by Quality Assurance International to ensure strict adherence to the organic standards set forth by the USDA.

Natural by Nature created a whole system in which grass-fed organic milk could be produced, transported, processed and packaged, independent of the huge, volume based milk industry. Strict adherence to organic principles and a dedication to high quality governs their farm operations.

Cows are meant to eat grass, not exclusively grain. Pastured cows are healthier and less stressed. At Natural by Nature they strive to make fresh pasture the main diet for the cows. The farmers own and operate small family farms in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.

Kalona Organic Butter

Kalona organic butter photo
Grass-fed, Vat-pasteurized
  • The farms that supply Kalona are predominately Amish and Mennonite farmers located in the Kalona & Bloomfield, Iowa area. All the farms are certified organic.
  • The typical farm size is 40 cows, with some having as little as 10 cows and others having around 60-70 cows. By normal organic industry standards, our farms are on the small farm size. Most farms operate on 80 acres, with some having less and some more.
  • Cows are typically named, instead of identifying them with ear tag numbers. Each cow is important, because with smaller operations there isn’t the ability to quickly replace worn-out cows.
  • A study conducted a couple of years ago by the Leopold Center at Iowa State University showed that our milk from our producers has a high content of CLA in comparison to other similar types of dairy operations

We believe in doing less - not more - when it comes to our organic butter. We start with grass-fed cream from small family farms and create small batches of butter using a hands-on method that is rare today. This attention to detail and our supremely natural process produce a distinctively delicious organic butter!
