    kirkland/costco organic butter

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    Hello,

    I sent costco an email asking them if their organic butter is grass fed. This is the response I received:

    "The cows that product our Kirkland Signature Organic Butter live outdoors all year-round, with 24-hour access to water, and are fed a nutritionally-balanced diet of organic pasture, organic mixed forages (such as alfalfa hay, grass hay and silages), organic grain (such as soymeal, ground corn, wheat, sunflower and flax seeds) and an organic vitamin and mineral supplement. In addition, they are not given any antibiotics or hormones."

    My gut feeling is that I need to find another source for butter. Any opinions?

    Thanks,
    Beth

    My Costco just started selling Kerrygold.

    Most of my local butter isn't grass fed year round. We just don't have good pasture all year here. So it's a mix.

    Definitely not grass fed - but not the worst butter you could get either.

    It's so frustrating how the good stuff comes and goes at CostCo! I've been LOVING their big cannisters of macadamias (I'm a macadamaniac!), but now the one near me stopped selling them. Sometimes they have organic chicken, sometimes not, sometimes organic spinach, sometimes not... grrr.

    I second the macadamias. I heard that all Costos are going to stop carrying them. Curious to see if this is true.

    Thanks for all the responses. I'm going to see if my costco carries the kerrygold butter. If not, then I will have to start visiting the trader joe's.

    I wish costco carried more organic meat and produce.

    The Trader Joe's in my area sell Kerrygold for $2.79, while the supermarkets sell it for $5.00! Kerrygold is awesome :-)

    My Costco was out for a couple of months, then they came back. This past week the macs were no where to be seen. Good news in that I can replenish my bank account.
