Free Range, No Hormones, Made from 100% Fresh Milk

Why Anchor?

Since its beginnings in 1886, Anchor has been an iconic New Zealand brand, synonymous with milk and dairy innovation. Anchor is one of the key brands owned by Fonterra Co-operative Group and a leading dairy brand across the globe loved by consumers in many countries. Anchor Butter is extraordinary in quality and one of the best butters on the market today.

Anchor Butter from grass-fed, free-range cows has a richer taste versus barn raised non grass fed animals. Butter from grass fed cows is higher in Omega 3, Beta Carotene and Vitamin A.

Free range

Means cows are feed on grass only, 365 days of the year. Therefore no grain, artificial feed or meat & bone meal is fed to cows on New Zealand’s farms.

Means naturally raised and humane living conditions for cows 24/7.

No Hormones

The New Zealand government prohibits the use of animal growth hormones in dairy, sheep and beef farming. There is mounting evidence that growth hormones can adversely affect the heath of cattle and humans.

Made from 100% Fresh Milk

Milk is collected twice a day from the farm.

Not made from reconstituting milk powder and anyhydrous milk fat.

How do we make the richest smoothest creamiest-tasting butter?

We start with 100% fresh cream from cows that graze only in green pastures 365 days a year. We add nothing but a touch of salt. The fresh cream is slow churned to release the water and then packed into blocks that are immediately frozen, locking in the freshness and rich buttery flavor. Butter from grass-fed free-ranging cows is higher in Omega 3, Vitamin A, and Beta Carotene, all proven to be good for your health. Additionally, our daily cows are absolutely hormone free.
