Now more than ever, I’ve been evaluating the food I purchase at our grocery stores each week. It’s crazy the stuff you’ll find in your food if you start reading all the labels, isn’t it?! Of course, it’s overwhelming if you start trying to change years of habits all at once, so I’ve been taking it a little bit at a time. For instance, I think I’ve finally eliminated all traces of high fructose corn syrup from our diets! Now I’m on to looking for and eliminating those nasty hormones – BLECH.
So when Erin contacted me about trying some butter from Minerva Dairy, I was intrigued. When she told me that the butter comes from pasture-raised cows, which means it is hormone and antibiotic-free, I was even MORE intrigued! And I mean…BUTTER. Who doesn’t want to try BUTTER?!
I hadn’t heard of Minerva Dairy before, so I headed over to their website to take a look. The dairy is America’s oldest family-owned dairy producing traditionally-made cheese and butter! For five generations, the family has used fresh farm milk, old-fashioned churns and wholesome ingredients to make their butter and cheese products. They also offer gift baskets and yummy meats and mustards!
When the package arrived, I was astonished to find FOUR POUNDS OF BUTTER. Four pounds!
It was packaged so nicely for me in dry ice with an awesome cooler to boot!
