Our Organic, Grass-fed Butter
Kalona SuperNatural™ offers unsalted and lightly salted organic, grass-fed butter. Our butter is fresh, creamy, and delicious because we make it the old-fashioned way. We start with organic milk from grass-fed cows on sustainable family farms. We separate the cream and churn it into butter almost immediately after the milk arrives at the creamery.
Celtic Sea Salt
We add Celtic Sea Salt ®, an unprocessed whole salt that is hand-harvested on the Brittany coast of France, to create our Lightly Salted Butter. These salt farmers, in fact, have much in common with the dairy farmers who produce our milk: they provide food in its most natural state by using traditional farming methods that sustain the region’s environmental integrity.
Small Batches with a Hands-on Method
We create our butter in small batches using a hands-on method rarely seen in the 21st century. Our butter churn dates from the post-World War II era, and is very small compared to most industrial churns. Each batch requires the butter maker’s careful supervision to ensure that it turns out just right. After the butter is molded into sticks, it is hand-packed into cartons and ready for the retail shelf.
Kalona SuperNatural™ butter is excellent for cooking, baking, or eating it anyway that you like.
Award Winning Butter
Kalona SuperNatural butter has taken 1st and 2nd place in the Iowa Quality Dairy Products Contest at the 2017 Iowa State Fair. A 1st place blue ribbon award was given to our lightly salted butter, while our unsalted butter earned the 2nd place red ribbon.
Entries were judged by a panel of experienced entry panel judges based in the Midwest. The panel evaluated the technical and aesthetic merits of each entry using standard criteria. Both butter varieties earned the same awards in 2016. We are thrilled to once again have our product recognized at the Fair!
Environmentally Friendly Packaging
Our cartons not only protect our butter from the elements, but are also recyclable and environmentally friendly—made using 100% wind energy.
