About Better Butter Bureau

Better Butter Bureau is a Des Moines based business that strives to make the best butter with the best ingredients. All cream is sourced from local dairies. No preservatives are ever added!

One of these is Sheeder Cloverleaf out of Guthrie Center, IA. To quote them: “Sheeder Cloverleaf Dairy is a grass-based dairy… The cows eat live growing grasses and legumes. We have found this method of farming to be good for the cows, good for our farm, good for us.” The other dairy is Kalona SuperNatural, a certified organic dairy in Kalona, IA.

We currently offer the following flavors of BBB butter:

  1. Garlic Herb
