Kalona SuperNatural Organic Butter

Kalona SuperNatural butter is made in northern Iowa and certified organic. Their butter starts with organic milk from grass-fed cows on local, sustainable family farms. They separate the cream and churn it into butter almost immediately after the milk arrives at their creamery. Kalona makes their butter in small batches using a hands-on method rarely seen in the 21st century. In fact, their butter churn dates from the post-World War II era. 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.

We are proud to sell milk from local farmers who treat their animals with care. Autumnwood Farm, Kalona SuperNatural, and Castle Rock Organic Farms are some of our favorites. Here’s why!

Autumnwood milk

Autumnwood close upAll of our stores carry local Autumnwood Milk in the glass bottle. Autumnwood Farm, located south of Forest Lake, MN has been in the Daninger family since 1902. As a family business with long-held ties to the land, Autumnwood Farm is fully invested in the animals, the land, and everything the land produces. The entire farm is managed in a highly sustainable and environmentally balanced manner. The Daninger family has been honored with awards for top-quality milk, community service, and environment-respecting farming practices.

Using milk only from pastured cows, Autumnwood Farm brings all-natural, low-temperature pasteurized milk to our shoppers. Through rotational grazing and carefully managed nutrition, their cows produce milk that tastes good and is good for you.

Autumnwood Farm cows never receive growth hormone (rBST), and since they are raised naturally in a very healthful environment, they rarely need antibiotics. Every measure is taken to ensure that Autumnwood milk is free of any antibiotics.
