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. The idea is to help make your job easier while cooking or baking by presenting these as the ultimate all-inclusive butters on the market. Now we've added the best GF baked goods ever, plus some vegan ones too!Our vegan salad dressings are also amazing!
"We hope you enjoy these as much as we do!"
