    The butter you found at Organza in the white package is probably the l'ancetre. Safeway also carries it.

    I've found ghee at Superstore in the ethnic section, and it's tasty, though not organic and unlikely grass fed, it seems to be imported, India or Pakistan perhaps? I recently found some crazy expensive blend of organic virgin coconut oil/grass fed ghee at VitaHealth (70% coconut to 30% organic grass fed ghee). It's damn fine, but I'm using it sparingly due to the cost. About $40 for a 750 g jar. I may have seen it at Organza last week too.

    I also saw red palm oil at I think A1 Nutrition in Grant Park, don't remember where it was from, and haven't tried it yet.

    Thumbs up

    I found grass fed Ghee from a US company that ships to Canada. It is a bit pricey but I order a few at a time and make good use of it. In fact, I often mix the Ghee half and half with coconut oil which softens it and makes it quite useful for cooking.

    Do a search for pureindianfoods and you will find it easily

    Well I've talked to a few farms and it looks like L'ancentre is the best bet since they selectively choose the *most* grass fed cows to make their butter from. 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...

    Ha! That's where I got my list of farms to contact ;-). But thanks for the link! I'm still waiting on one response so we'll see if I get lucky....

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

    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.

    Do not allow yourself to become wrapped up in a food 'lifestyle'. That is ego, and you are not that.
