I just watched a chowtip using goat butter and would like to try using it but I don't ever remember comming across it in the past.Is it sold at specialty cheese shops maybe?

  1. Liberté makes goat butter. Most supermarkets stock it in the natural foods section or sometimes next to the regular butter.

    1. I buy it at Tau, Fruiterie du Plateau or Rachelle-Bery, with the best price being at Tau.

        Valmont on Mt-Royal also has it, over 9$ for 250 gr... Is it worth it, what does it taste, what are the benefits vs. cow butter?

          It's $7.99 at Tau. I have to avoid cow products so I do enjoy it in the place of margarine for some recipes. It does have a goaty aroma but it has health benefits as goats are raised without hormones and few antibiotics, according to the authors of Goat: Meat, Milk, Cheese, Bruce Weinstein and Mark Scarborough.

            Thanks everyone.I guess I'll check first at my local super market.I'm not really in the plateau neighborhood so I'll post if I find it near me in NDG.

              I thought dairy cows in Canada were also raised without hormones etc., unlike in the US.
