Banner Butter strives to create butters that taste great by doing it the right way. We're different in several ways. First, the cream. It's fresh. Like, really fresh. That's because it comes from Georgia cows, local to us. Second, it's grass-fed. Our cows graze in green pastures and are not treated with hormones. Third, the butterfat. We use cream that is at least 40% butterfat, which is 5-10% higher butterfat than the cream used in most other butters. Fourth, the method. Before churning, we let the cream ripen for many, many hours. This ripening process allows good bacteria to form. It is this good bacteria that gives butter its complex buttery undertones.
Next, after the cream ripens, we slowly churn it in small batches. This process results in a better tasting product because we are able to make small adjustments throughout churning, depending on the season, the consistency, and the taste of the cream.
Finally, our butter is hand-cut and lovingly packaged. That's why no two packages look exactly the same. In the end, it takes us 20 times longer to make our butter than industrial scale butters. So if you want something special, give us a try!
