If you?re eating big-brand butter, there?s a good chance the milk it?s made from comes from cows living indoors in concrete-paved ?farms.? At Vital Farms, our pasture-raised butter comes from contented cows living as nature intended, free to roam and graze their green pastures to their hearts? content. That means small herds of suitable breeds (Jerseys, Guernseys and Holsteins for the most part) which are cared for by experienced American family farmers on well-managed lands. These lucky ladies are free to graze their open pastures every day (weather permitting), and supply a rich, high-fat milk perfect for our needs. This wonderful milk is then passed off to our artisanal 5th generation butter-makers, at one of America?s oldest creameries, who use all their experience and craft to create the most wonderful butter. Their secret? Slow-churning and small batches, which brings out the high butterfat content, making for a rich and delicious butter that is beyond compare!
