How We Started and What's In It


Butter Barn Butter came to fruition while driving New Years Day. I started talking with my husband about butter for some reason and suddenly the light came on. We looked at each other and said , "Oh my gosh! That's it! Fresh grass-fed products! The ideas are endless!" Thus, a new business was born. We've moved on to baked goods as the demand was great. We've gone into vegan treats as well and have been mad scientists ever since, creating, re-creating, tasting, and enjoying the best GF and vegan baked goods ever!


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