Would you use Animal Farm Butter?
Diane St. Clair is the maker of Animal Farm Butter. Her farm is in Orwell, Vermont and she has been making butter for more than 10 years. She has Jersey Cows and cultures their cream from buttermilk also made on the farm. It is then churned by hand until it becomes a deep yellow, then it is kneaded to work out fat.
This butter is made from the months of September to June. They produce about 100 pounds of butter each week. Animal Farm butter can be found only at No. 9 Park, French Laundry, Per Se and Saxelby Cheesemongers.
Believe it or not it really does cost $49 per pound and it comes in a sealed Ziploc. It might be hard to decide if spending such a large amount of money is worth it, but all the hype makes one wonder what it tastes like.
