Unpastuerized Butter in TO???

Apparently if you like unpastuerized cheese, you'll LOVE unpastuerized butter....
Anyone know where it can be purchased in Toronto???

  1. Legally you can't buy unpastuerized butter as unpastuerized dairy products must be aged for sixty days. If you managed to obtain unpastuerized cream you could make your own butter. I have been making butter at home using my Kitchen Aid mixer and organic cream, it is fantastic.

      Damn you! Now I have to drop serious coin on a KitchenAid mixer. You're idea sounds amazing. A very large step beyond Lactancia cultured unsalted. Complete quantity, quality, & freshness control. Thanks.

        Well, OK, you can make your own, but is the organic cream unpasteurised? That would be illegal n Ontario. And the experts, like Lactantia, and Land of Lakes, have cream cultures that are proprietary. Fresh is different.

    2. I hear rumours that if you ask at some of the better cheese shops in town they sometimes have it hiding behind the counter for purchase by staff or regulars.
