How We Started and What's In It


Butter Barn Butter came to fruition while driving New Years Day. We started talking about butter for some reason and suddenly the light came on. We looked at each other and said at the same time, "Oh my gosh! That's it! Fresh grass-fed flavored butters! The ideas are endless!" Thus, a new business was born. We could hardly wait to get to the store and buy the best grass fed butter we could find, and have been mad scientists since- creating, re-creating, tasting, and enjoying these silk, velvety whipped, formed, and flavored creamy butters. Now we've grown into the best GF baked goods ever, plus some vegan and keto ones too!Our vegan salad dressings are also amazing!


"We hope you enjoy these as much as we do!" 


"I've bought expensive gifts for my grandkids over the years like snowboards, skis, trips out of the country, etc, but when I gave my son this amazing butter he said, "Mom, this is the best gift you've ever given us!" Think of all the money I could have saved. It's the God's truth, this is the best darn butter ever!"

"I can't believe how amazing their butters are! My kid love the herb, lemon honey and blueberry honey! Mine is the Paleo Butter for Coffee. But to be honest, I've tasted almost all of them and it's always hard to decide which ones to order!"
