Pastured Eggs and Grassfed Butter in GTA?

by 1401 · May 27, 2014 6:57 PM

I was wondering where I can buy grassfed butter and pastured eggs in GTA but specifically Brampton, Ontario? Are there any brands of butter I can find at grocery stores that are grassfed?

Press L2, R2, L1, R1, L2, R2, TRIANGLE, SQUARE, CIRCLE, TRIANGLE, L2, LEFT, unlocks the "whole foods" menu where you can select foods, they're like health power ups. But that's only for GTA 3, I don't know about vice city.

Your only reasonable answer is going to a farmer. I work at a natural food store and we can't carry dairy products (milk and egg) from local farmers unless they are government inspected / licensed. (aka don't bother). All the organic / free range eggs in most natural food stores / section of supermarkets are just organic biz, so never mind the quality, and they are priced ridiculously! I'm sure you've seen these prices. There is no grass fed butter brand in Canada as far as I know, but something close is Harmony Organic Dairy butter, or goats butter by Hewitt's or Mornington (that's what sometimes use). Again, go right to the farmer! It's the most reasonable solution (price and quality)

Brooker's Natural Meats sells both pastured and grass fed butter

Here's the link to their website http://www.brookersmeat.com/

Below I posted what their new ad says regarding their grass fed butter.

WE NOW CARRY PASTURED, OR GRASS FED BUTTER!

This grass fed butter is made at a local dairy from milk from 100% grass fed animals to produce the healthiest butter on the market. This unique grass fed butter is available in half pound containers. Supplies are limited. We now carry our grass fed butter in a salted and unsalted variety.

Good to know our government has our diet on lockdown. These shitty "factory eggs" ... nutritional deadzones that taste as wan as they look... are available to everyone. Oh, wait, you want eggs that are good for you? I'M SORRY, YOU CAN'T BUY OR SELL THOSE! AND YOU OUGHT TO BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELF FOR EVEN ASKING ABOUT THEM! WHAT ARE YOU, SOME KIND OF FRIGGIN HEALTH NUT OR SOMETHING? Sigh. K. Depressed now. Going to go have a government-approved snack of Twinkies and Pepsi. That which does not kill us ... eventually does.

Whole Foods has "Small Flocks" Eggs. Eggs raised on green grass. I buy these and they are tasty. Also, in Kensington Market you can find small farm eggs at Sanagan's Meat Locker (As well as other great meat)

Pastured butter and milk is out of the question, I've been looking for a really long time.

Although kimberley craig's answer is largely correct, I believe that it is possible for a retailer in Canada to be importing grassfed butter from outside the country, paying about a 289.5% duty on it, and selling it legally. That said, I've never seen it for sale anywhere and it would be remarkably expensive.

There was a good article in the Globe and Mail not too long ago about how our standardized system for dairy limits specialty butters and described Canada as a "butter backwater."

Ontario and Canada have quota systems which control the cost of dairy and eggs. It is prohibitively expensive for farmers with small, specialized products (pastured eggs, grassfed milk, etc) to participate and their products are not sold as they wouldn't make any money.

You may find the eggs if you find a farm, I live the other side of Toronto (Oshawa) and drive a bit east for "farm fresh" eggs. (These are illegal to sell in stores, by the way).

The milk, you're totally out of luck to the best of my knowledge. The farner with grassfed milk would have to buy into the dairy farming system and all milk is mixed together- no specialty product... Unless you find someone making it illegally in their home.

Cross your fingers that Steven Harper is going to disband this system as there is talk of that and specialty food products will appear!

I posted some pretty detailed information on options (for butter at least) in the greater toronto area:

In my opinion L'Ancetre is the butter "to be beat" for the money.

GO TO THE CHEESE BOUTIQUE ON QUEEN ST WEST FOR GRASS FED BUTTER IN TORONTO. Put some in your Bulletproof coffee and praise Odin!

Grass fed butter is one thing. Grass fed butter made from raw un-pasturized milk is entirely different.

It all depends on what you really want to get out of all this and how much you're willing delve into finding a source.

Research cow share programs in Ontario. Then you can get what you want, privately.

You can find eggs from pastured chickens at every farmer's market in the city

You can get grassfed butter from the Monforte Dairy stall at St. Lawrence Market. Try a CSA for pastured eggs.

Im not sure about Farms in the Brampton area, in Dundas there is a farm 'Old 99 Farm' which has grass fed beef, butter, milk, cream and sells pastured eggs. Ian Graham is the farmer. It is a PERMACULTURE farm.
