Organic farming

On the Røros Butter packaging you can clearly see the EU leaves, labelling our product as certified organic. The EU organic logo indicates that this product is in full conformity with the conditions and regulations for the organic farming sector established by the European Union.

Strict standards

But what does organic milk production entail? The strict standards to be a certified organic farm. It is required that farmers avoid synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. A minimum of 60% of the fodder to feed the cows needs to be produced on the farm, and there are strict limitations to how much concentrated fodder the cows can get. It also means that farmers are not allowed to use growth hormones or antibiotics.

The animals graze on pastureland throughout the region.

Animal welfare

In organic farming, the calf will stay with its mother for a significantly longer period compared to standard farming – up to 3 months. In conventional farming they can take the calf straight from the cow after birth.

Our cultured butter is richer, softer, and more flavorful.
