So, you’re giving your best, but you can’t find proper grassfed butter anywhere near you?
You’re having doubts whether that particular product is just false advertising? Or, you just can’t spend that much time looking around?
No worries, we’re here to help you find the best grass fed butter in Australia!
But first, before you even begin looking for “the” one butter that you’ll be pleased with, be mindful of what you want to buy. Here are three points you need to be made sure to get passed:
- Cows are NOT fed grain as a primary source
- Cows are NOT fed grain as a secondary source (when there isn’t enough grass e.g. winter/drought season)
- Cows are NOT fed grain as a means to stimulate milk production
Check the label on the product to verify this, or, if it’s unclear, contact the producer itself.
Now, we’ve done our research and here’s a compact and useful list of grass fed butter products and where to find them in Australia…
Organic Times is one of the few Aussie producers to offer and promote completely, 100% grass-fed butter product, as stated on its package. Adamantly non-GMO, they offer a plethora of organic products, but most importantly, their cows are free-range grass-pastured throughout the year.
Without any artificial hormones added, they use double churn process and state-of-the-art processing techniques to ensure the specific quality of their butter.
Surfcoast Wholefoods (VIC) offer the unsalted version for $6.95 per 250g.

Westgold represents something of golden standard in Australia when it comes to grass-fed butter. Coming from New Zealand, it is totally grass-fed, as New Zealand is a wet country. Because of that, it’s uneconomical to include grain since grass pastures lie in abundance.
This also guarantees that no droughts will force the farmers to switch to grain for substitution.
Because of the standard it sets, Westgold can commonly be found across the nation, in the nearest Woolworths or IGA supermarket, for 1.99$ per 100g.

Another butter that promotes its pasture-fed butter, Ashgrove proudly comes from Tasmania, as stated in their slogan. No additives and colourings here either, and they even offer several types of butter, including salted, unsalted, and garlic-infused kinds (Remember: Garlic is medicine, not food!).
It comes in packages of 250g portion, 2.5kg, and 17kg blocks.
Visit their website to order some to reach you anywhere in Australia (4$ – 250g, 37.50$ – 2.5kg). Apart from that, most of Woolworths supermarkets have it on their shelves, so check it out!
King Valley Dairy Butter
Another cultured butter for all the Aussie gourmands out there! Grass-fed, naturally cultured for over 18 hours, and containing over 82% of butterfat–it makes our stomach growl! Mmm mmm.
King Valley Dairy even offers special types of butter with a twist, including black truffle, smoked salt, and bush tomato butter. They boast natural ingredients and cooperation with indigenous communities, so visit their webpage for more info.
You can find them at Moyhu, Victoria, while their products lie on the shelves of the stores listed here, but you can always order some online!
The last on the list, but not the least for sure, is Paris Creek’s natural biodynamic, organic butter, handmade from pure cream. Without any cultures or colours, not even salt or water, they strive to make their butter as unspoiled as possible.
Their extended network of products spans between SA, NSW, VIC, QLD and WA in supermarkets like Coles (SA only), Woolworths, Foodland, and IGA. Prices roll from $2.85 per 100g.
Bulletproof Grass Fed Ghee
While not “butter” per se, we would be remiss if we didn’t include something in here for those that are hyper-sensitive to casein, even that teensy bit that is in these great, clean butters we’ve mentioned.
So, when that’s the case, you can still have all the grass-fed buttery goodness, without the intolerance by using Ghee instead. Bulletproof’s own Grass-Fed Ghee is available on our store here now.
To conclude this list, most of these products have either established themselves on the Aussie market and remain present in the great majority of supermarkets, or allow inexpensive (sometimes even free) delivery throughout the country.
