    Was even brought up in the government's debate in parliament

    It really is a sad state! If people can buy cigarettes, why can't I buy raw milk knowing the possible (not probable) implications?
    I can't remember which brand it was but organza's brand (comes in white wrapping) appeared to be the tastiest -- it's just a little out of the way....

    I'll keep plugging away and see what I can find!
    There are some people pushing for raw milk in Quebec. The point you made about cigarettes has been brought up in the provincial government parliament, to no avail ...

    I have personnaly inquired at the ministry of Agriculture about cow share here in Quebec and was told it is legal.

      I've searched and searched...and wept a little.

      There is absolutely no grass-fed butter in Canada. None. Zip. Zilch.

      I'm seriously planning a road trip to Buffalo and buying $60 worth of Kerrygold. That's the most you can bring over the border in a day without getting taxed.

I've had good experience with their butter before so I will continue to purchase theirs... And by most, I mean the cows in which the vast majority of their diet is grass with the least amount of supplementation.

        A buddy of mine in Ontario says he can acquire grass fed butter so I'll poke him to figure out what brand it is -- maybe we can figure out a way to get it up here...
        You have a buddy in Ontario with grass-fed butter?!?!?!?!

          "Luckily" on June 1st, you'll be able to bring back $200 worth of Kerrygold

              For folks in Quebec. You may want to check out Beurrerie du Patrimoine http://www.fermegroleau.com/
              I love their cream and butter and used to love their milk (
              Their products are grass-fed, non-homogenized and pasteurized at low temperature.
              You can find it on Jean Talon market and some health stores, like Avril etc. Their products spoil quickly, so make sure to get them fresh.

                    Thanks!
                    You can't. Canada's dairy runs on a quota system and grass fed butter does not exist up here. My dad could tell you all about why, he did agricultural loans for CIBC, but I honestly don't care enough to reprise it. Sorry.
