The health benefits of Vitamin-K2 go far beyond blood clotting, (which is done by Vitamin-K1) and Vitamin-K2 also works synergistically with a number of other nutrients, including calcium and Vitamin D. Its biological role is to help move calcium into the proper areas in your body, such as your bones and teeth. It also plays a role in removing calcium from areas it shouldn't be, such as in your arteries and soft tissues.
Butter from Grass-fed cows is much higher in Omega-3 fatty acids and Vitamin K2, compared to butter from grain-fed cows.
Grass-fed, pasture-raised Irish Butter is exactly that.
It is made from milk from cows that graze almost exclusively
on grass in Ireland's lush meadows. In fact, 80% of Ireland's Agricultural land is devoted to grasslands. Ireland has a temperate climate with mild weather temperatures accompanied by plentiful rainfalls all year round allowing for naturally suited and sustainable Dairy Farming, making grass-fed butter healthier than regular butter...

Vitamin A is required for growth and development in humans, and the maintenance of our immune system and good vision.
CLA is related to the Omega-6 fatty acids, one of the two types of essential fatty acids that help the body increase metabolic rates, boost the immune system and keep cholesterol levels in check. CLA is found in dairy and animal fats, such as beef, lamb, whole milk, and eggs, but cannot be produced by the human body. CLA is popular as a fat loss supplement, and studies show it can have powerful effects on health. Grass-fed butter contains five times more CLA than butter from grain-fed cows.
Our producers are part of the Origin Ireland Sustainability Programme. Typical Irish farms are family owned and run with an average herd size of only 65 cows.
Waterford Irish Butter is famous for its unique deep golden yellow color which comes from hormone free grass-fed cattle. The reason for its beautiful golden color is a thing called "beta-carotene." When cattle are allowed to roam free in the open air and eat grass, their milk is rich in Omega-3 and beta-carotene.
-- Grass-Fed Dairy Contains up to 500% more CLA than Conventional Dairy
Omega-3 fatty acids reduce inflammation, protect from heart disease and
reduce high triglyceride levels. Green plants on land produce Omega-3
fatty acids, so when cows graze on grass, these acids are higher in the
milk they produce.
Waterford Irish Butter is available in 1# Quarter Sticks.
Offered in both salted and unsalted.
