Product Description

Long before Kerrygold was ever heard of - in fact, as far back as written records go - dairying has played a starring role in Ireland. In the old days, Irishmen kept cattle for milk more than for meat, and status was derived from the bounty of your herd.

How did cows become the cornerstone of Irish wealth? Simple. Ireland was made for milk. It has everything you need to make a cow happy: good soil, a mild climate, moisture-bearing southwesterly winds, and all the green grass you can chew.

It didn't take long to figure out that happy cows produce amazing milk, which can then be churned into unbeatable butter. As early as the 17th century, Ireland was sharing its butter with the world. Irish boats were being met at the dock by salivating Swedes, Danes, Portuguese, Frenchmen, Spaniards and American colonists - just as Kerrygold butter is today.

The butter is so appealingly golden that it looks as though it has been colored, although the color is natural, coming from the beta-carotene in the intense green Irish grass consumed by the cows. Made in the style of all premium European butters, Kerrygold's higher fat content gives its butter a distinctive richness. The foil wrapper preserves freshness and premium quality.

  • All Kerrygold products are made using microbial rennet, making them suitable for vegetarians.

    Butter is butter, you say? I was skeptical, too, but when I read about the health benefits of grass-fed cows' butter, I had to find out for myself. The taste is just finger licking good, and I had to lick my buttery fingers to get every molecule, and I have NEVER licked my buttery fingers EVER before. I had a hard time finding this type of grass fed butter locally and almost resorted to an on-line purchase. One last effort connected me with a clerk who told me that Kerry Gold is stocked in their specialty deli sections, not with the other butters, which not only tells me that it's in a league of its own, but explains why I initially couldn't find it in supermarkets that advertised they had it. We were naive enough to be searching for Kerry Gold in the dairy aisle, mixed up with all the wanna-be butters. I made a simple, but favorite, pasta dish, as soon as I brought it home, to test the difference. It was just unbelievably delicious. Now I'm a believer. And with this purchase, I support farms that make sure their cows eat grass, and that is just as important to me. It's how nature intended it.

    This is NOT cooking butter. This is EATING butter. Too good for use in cooking, though you could do that, I just want to taste it directly on toast, biscuits, etc. Regular butter is okay to use in cooking, but this is the Cadillac of dairy products. You haven't lived until you've tried real butter without the processing other butters go through. Enough said, enjoy!

    This butter is sinful! There are no other words to describe it.

    I started eating grass-fed butter after reading Dr. Weston Price's book and I will never look back. It's better for you -which you can tell by the color of the butter- it tastes better and it's creamy beyond words. Even cold out of the frig and it still spreads easily.

    Yes it is more expensive, but worth every cent. I buy it at Costco for like $9 for 3 lbs. If you are a butter lover and haven't tried this, then you are seriously missing out!

    Super Smooth and Creamy-Dreamy! I got it from my local Trader Joe's for about 3 bucks.

    There REALLY is a difference between conventional butter and pure grass-fed butter from pastured cows.

    Check out the health benefits of consuming pastured butter at the Weston Price Foundation.

    The only thing better than this incredible Kerry Butter from Ireland, would have to be organic, raw, grass-fed butter locally. I just haven't found a source in my area yet.

    Until then, it's Kerry for me ~ I use it on everything and cook with it as well.

    I'm actually running low on it, so I better go get some more ~ Cheers!

    I just bought this on a lark (not from Amazon), and I was pleasantly surprised: it has a very mild, smooth, creamy taste. At first, I thought that butter was butter, but I did a direct comparison (tasting small slivers of each back-to-back) with the Costco Kirkland Signature butter I had in the fridge, and I have to say the Kerrygold is superior and a lot closer to the fresh, smooth taste I remember spreading on fresh breads at European continental breakfasts.

    As a side note, the salted butter really isn't very salty (much less so than the other butter), which (to me) is a good thing, as I'm not much for salty flavors.

    i love love love this butter. you can get it in an 8 ounce brick, or in a more spreadable state in a tub. i keep both
    on hand, as i'm partial to unsalted, and the tub is lightly salted, but wonderful. no chemicals, hormones, bgst, rbg, rst,or
    lsd!! the butter comes from cows that are grass fed, out in the sunshine, healthy, moving, not in cages their whole life with infected udders, and given daily hormone injections to get them fat and to the market faster, with antibiotics in their daily feed. this butter still has nutrients in it, like CLA, and vitamins, you can feel good about putting it on your veges, and toast, or whatever else. we are what we eat, diet is key. i'm a nurse, and i've never met a sick person who didn't want to
    improve their health, even if it cost a little more, why not start eating better now, BEFORE you end up really sick from so many poor choices, and this is a good place to start.

    It was on sale, so I thought I had nothing to lose. I was wrong; I had only my desire to ever buy any other butter product again!

    This is so creamy and flavorful that I ended up eating two tablespoons of it while I intended to only taste it. It's like butter heroin! One taste and you are hooked!

    There is absolutely no comparison between this Irish butter and whatever else you'll find at your grocer -- unless you live on a farm, in Ireland, and have grass-eating cows. If you do, then I am jealous. ;)

    Oh, and, if you don't like it, please send me yours. I would hate for any to go to waste!

    Being from Ireland I grew up with Kerrygold. Known in our house as 'the butter', not grass fed cow's butter. Cows eat grass, end of that discussion. I just presumed that all butter the world over was well you know 'the butter'. My first trip to continental Europe scared the life out of me. I was going to starve to death, what was that white stuff they called butter? I actually put salt on my toast. Tea + toast = breakfast. Thankfully I was home soon and told my family of the evil stuff they called butter, of course they didn't believe me. .. Butter is butter. So when the Irish go on holiday,
    we bring
    Butter, Barry's tea and rashers if it's a short trip.
    Barrys tea, with brown bread with 'the butter'
