Frolicking Cows Produce Golden Butter

Ever noticed not all butter looks the same?

Butters vary from white to yellow. Why? It comes down to where the milked cow was fed. Cows raised on pastures produce yellow butter while grain fed cows produce white butter. The time of year factors in as well...for those pasture raised. Milk collected late spring, early summer is more yellow than any other time of the year.
