Red Feather canned butter: New Zealand's Ballantyne is the world's largest producer of canned butter. Sealed airtight for maximum freshness, Ballantyne's canned butter delivers convenience in the form of extended shelf life and easy distribution without the necessity of refrigeration. It has also proven ideal for disaster preparedness, camping, boating and remote areas where refrigeration isn't available. Each can holds 12 ounces of pure creamy butter.
New Zealand's free range farming system allows Ballantyne to produce butter of the highest quality. Their production facilities are ISO, GMP and HACCP accredited, and they take great pride in their reputation for the highest quality dairy products.
How long does it last? Ballantyne says the product has a shelf life of “at least” two years, but that only reflects the possibility that the can itself could be compromised—which it could, but it won't if it’s stored in a dry place, because it’s a very high quality can. They also say the butter retains nutritional value well beyond that time frame. In actual practice, customers have found the product to be indiscernible from fresh butter after more than a decade of room-temperature storage! Pretty amazing.
“Tastes great… It will come in handy for Florida's hurricane-related power outages. They've lasted over three weeks in the past.”
– Melanie S., FL
If you've been looking to add REAL butter, not powdered or freeze dried, to your pantry, then look no further. This butter, imported from New Zealand, tastes wonderful and has an indefinite shelf life, with no refrigeration necessary!
Great for camping, boat, RV... Now you can have smooth, creamy, high-quality butter... independent of electricity. Serve it right from the can, or open both sides of the can, and your butter slides easily onto a serving dish.
The best part (besides the great taste) is the list of ingredients: Pasteurized cream and salt–that’s it. No preservatives, food colorings or chemicals of any kind, just naturally made, wholesome New Zealand butter. You won't be disappointed in this outstanding product.
“By far the best butter I've ever had. I like that it has a long shelf life. When I bought the butter I also got a butter crock. It's amazing how it keeps the butter soft and creamy, yet fresh at room temperature. I look forward to buying more products from Pleasant Hill Grain.”
– Pedro L., TX

Expanded Ratings Descriptions
|R1||Very close scrutiny is required to tell that the item isn’t brand new. Working surfaces may show slight wear; for example, the bottom-inside of a Bosch mixer bowl may show swirl marks because Bosch mixer whips are designed to “float” against bottom of bowl. Non-working surfaces (cabinet, control panel) look essentially new. Carton may not be perfect.|
|R2||Typically has a small scuff or mark on a non-working surface like a mixer cabinet or the top of a pressure cooker lid.|
|FR||Mostly returned items which have been brought fully up to new-equipment performance specs at the factory.|
|D||Demonstration items have been operated briefly at Pleasant Hill Grain.|
|DIS||These items have never been used but we no longer sell them at full price in our store because it was discontinued by us or by the manufacturer.|
|U||Has had light use.|
|SDB||Has moderate damage or blemish on a non-working surface, such as a scratch or dent in the housing, or paint blemish.|
|NOS||A brand new item that isn't the newest model.|

By Debera O. in AZ on 6/6/2016 - Verified BuyerYou will not be disappointed with this Butter!!!! We have used it for awhile....... so good. A great way to take care of the butter issue when dealing with long term food storage......... that is if this butter lasts long enough to get into the food storage area. This butter is so good I bought another case after the first can!48 out of 48 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By James on 3/2/2016 - Verified BuyerMy wife and I bought a case with a case of cheese and tried it on some pilot bread survival crackers. Could make a meal out of it. Brought back memories of grandmother's butter to this old man. Can't hardly get butter this good anymore. Hope it lasts along with our other crisis/emergency supplies until there is one or I'll be buying more. Great and friendly service despite the nasty weather you were having when I ordered. Can't go wrong!33 out of 33 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Stepen c. in NY on 2/29/2016 - Verified BuyerMy very picky daughter was asked how she likes the butter and she said "It tastes like real butter." I told her it is real butter, just in a can. She loves it; we all do. Bought a case.17 out of 17 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Dale N. in FL on 6/20/2016 - Verified BuyerThis butter is awesome for camping and the hunt camp. It's also nice to have in the cupboard for, God forbid, you run out of butter!! Fresh and creamy, just as good as your market brands. We always have some on hand.14 out of 14 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Melanie S. in FL on 8/2/2016 - Verified BuyerTastes great, just as good or better than any butter I've purchased in the market. It will come in handy for Florida's hurricane-related power outages. They've lasted over three weeks in the past.13 out of 13 people found this review helpful. Did you?

By Orestes D. in FL on 6/8/2016 - Verified BuyerIt's great my mom would buy that when we lived in Aruba. I bought it to resend it to my sister-law, she is working in South America and they don't have electricity (regularly). And she was dying for butter. Your service was excellent everything arrived ON TIME, thank you.9 out of 9 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Jane L. in MA on 6/21/2016 - Verified BuyerExcellent as to taste, texture and appearance. It kept perfectly well in the fridge until it was used up. It is a bit saltier than my ideal butter (we normally eat unsalted butter) but it is better than many fresh salted butters and you obviously have to have some salt in it to preserve it. Glad to find it.8 out of 8 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Helen R. in TX on 2/11/2017 - Verified BuyerI bought a couple of cans a couple of years ago to test. I opened one immediately, and was happy with the taste, texture, etc. The taste is a bit different from the grocery store butter that I normally buy, but then, every brand of butter tastes different. I would definitely use it every day if I needed to. I left the second can on the shelf in my kitchen to see how it would taste after a couple of years. I was a bit hesitant about tasting it. I really thought it would not taste good after being on the shelf at (a warm) room temp for a couple of years. But I was pleasantly surprised. I put some on a cracker, and it tasted fine. Put some more on another cracker, then another... lol. No "can" taste, no rancid taste. I transferred it to a plastic container and put it in the freezer for a few days. When I removed it and let it sit at room temp until it was soft, it was still a great product. So... I ordered more to keep on my shelf for emergencies, or when I'm just too lazy to go shopping. I definitely would recommend this product.7 out of 7 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By A Dell on 12/2/2016 - Verified BuyerI haven't tried this butter yet but I ordered an entire case and not one single can was dented. This is a huge plus for me. Same with the case of ghee I ordered. If you order much long term canned food you know what I'm talking about. I get so tired of dented cans that I put off ordering food. Pleasant Hill Grain just earned themselves a customer for life!5 out of 5 people found this review helpful. Did you?
