Ploughgate Creamery's cultured butter is made from fresh Vermont cream sourced from the St Albans Coop. The cream is cultured for 48 hours before being churned, giving the butter a distinctly delicious flavor. The flavor from the sweet cream shines through, creating an elegant and balanced butter that is among the best we've ever tasted!
The butter is made at the historic Bragg Farm, farm that was put into the Vermont Land Trust with the purpose of keeping the land in agriculture. Marisa Mauro, butter maker and entrepreneur behind Ploughgate Creamery, won the right to purchase this land through a competition in which young farmers submit agricultural business plans for the land. Marisa's business plan for her butter business and creamery won out over 13 applicants, and she began producing butter there in 2014.
