July 19 marks 21 years since our company’s founder, Leo Peters, passed away. Mr. Peters was an inventor and innovator, and he showed that persistence and hard work was the key to success. Since his passing, we honor him as well as the entire Butterball Farms family of employees for their dedication, hard work, and continued diligent pursuit of excellence.
Since the early 70’s, our tagline has been “Because Butter Should Be Beautiful,” and we can proudly say that we have made more beautiful butter than anyone on earth. When Leo started the company, what he did was innovative, new, and imaginative. Last year, we changed our tagline to: “Imagine Butter Differently.” Our new tagline continually reminds us to try new and different things. At Butterball Farms, we pride ourselves with having an incredible ability to make designs anyway our customers can imagine them.
Founder’s Day is not only a day to say thank you and to honor those who have made long and substantial investments of time and energy to our company. It is also a day to look back and reflect on what has been accomplished and changed and to look forward together and dream of a great future. We keep dreaming and imagining what we can do different, unique, and interesting… In the past 21 years, many of the dreams for our business have come true. We have built a great culture, we are an exceptional supplier, and we are a community thought leader. We are enriching lives daily. We are making beautiful butter, and we are imagining and dreaming. We have more opportunities than ever to continue to build this company, our brands, our influence, and our people!
Happy Founder’s Day to the Butterball Farms Family!
Introducing Creekside Creamery Burger Butters™ by Butterball Farms! According to blogger Michelle Boule, they are the “delicious and easy way to add a pop of flavor to your burger”. If you are looking for the perfect addition to transform the ordinary into the outstanding, this is the way to do it! Developed specifically for the food service industry, these delicious dollops are so tasty that they make it easy for you to create premium recipes that will bring customers coming back for more.
We asked blogger Michelle Boule at TheBrooklynCook.com to share her thoughts about these butters, and here is what she had to say:
“It is super creamy because of its higher butterfat content, which makes for great texture and taste. Seriously, try cooking your next burger with butter!”
The best thing about Creekside Creamery Burger Butters™ are that they are super simple to use. Just before serving, at the end of the grilling cycle, just top off your burger with a generous dollop of your desired flavor and watch it melt into buttery bliss! One of our favorite flavors is the Bacon Pepper Jack butter. Try combining this with some pineapple chunks for a refreshing “Aloha Burger” with a little kick of spice. You can find the recipe here.

What could be more fun than playing in the Butterball® Farms’ kitchen with our new Creekside Creamery™ compound butters? We experimented in the Butter Lab today, and we couldn’t be more pleased with the results! Our theme was “What’s New on the Sandwich Scene?,” and our goal was to come up with fresh ideas for pairing the compound butters with different proteins and breads. The sandwiches we created were amazing, and we’d love to share our application ideas with you!
We decided on three types of protein: Ground Beef, Ground Turkey, and Veggie patties, and three variations of bread: white burger buns, pretzel buns, and Brioche buns. Then, we experimented with Creekside Creamery™ compound butters: Horseradish & Blue Burger Butters™, Bacon Pepper Jack Burger Butter™, and Bombay Curry Butter in a 1/9 Pan Liner. And voila! Our food scientist, Alex, created three delicious sandwiches that were simple to put together and would serve as great additions to the menu at any restaurant! Today’s pairings included:
- Horseradish & Blue Beef Burger on a classic, toasted white bun, with lettuce, tomato, onion, and crumbled Blue Cheese. Topped with a Creekside Creamery™ Horseradish and Blue Burger Butters™ dollop.
- Bacon Pepper Jack Turkey Burger on a toasted pretzel bun with lettuce, tomato, onion, strips of crisp bacon, and featuring a delectable Burger Butters™ Bacon Pepper Jack dollop from Creekside Creamery™.
- Bombay Curry Veggie Burger on a toasted Brioche bun with lettuce, tomato, cucumber lime Pico de Gallo, flavored with Creekside Creamery™ Bombay Curry Butter. Sweet and Spicy, and oh so good!
Give these new butters a try! Your customers’ taste buds will thank you! If you’re interested in learning more about our Creekside Creamery™ compound butters, please call us at 888.8BUTTER, or email us at Info@ButterballFarms.com.

“I was given an opportunity to try this new butter from Creekside Creamery called Burger Butters. Do not let the name fool you….these butters would work on so much more than just a burger. (I’ll get to that later….like another blog post going over all the ways one flavored butter can be used.) The butters come in two flavors, Horseradish Blue Cheese and Bacon Pepper Jack. Can you guess which one I tried? Yes….I tried the Bacon Pepper Jack. And?????? It was INCREDIBLE! A wonderful creamy and a bit of a spicy kick to elevate my burgers. One bite and I was Hooked! The flavor is extremely balanced. Good bacon notes with the perfect amount of heat.”
The way to a mans heart is through his stomach. And with Father’s Day coming up on Sunday, June 18, we are thinking of the tasty treats that we can create that really cater to the men. It’s not all stereotypical grilled cheese and steak though: we’ve determined that the ultimate pleasure really is…bread and butter!
First up though: why do we celebrate Father’s Day? Well, it is a day for people to show their appreciation for the father figure in their lives: whether is be stepfathers, fathers-in-law, guardians, foster parents, and family friends. There’s many different theories as to where the day originated from – with evidence showing marks of the celebration as far back as 4,000 years! But it’s commonly believed that the modern version of Father’s Day, alongside the traditions that we know of today here in the U.S., stemmed from Ms Senora Louise Dodd, back in 1909. Mother’s Day had been long established, and as Senora and her five siblings were raised by her father, she wanted to honor fathers in the same way. And so the story goes…
But that is enough history for today: now onto the fun stuff – FOOD!
There is no greater pleasure than bread and butter! And this is backed up by baker Alie Romano. When we asked Alie to think of the perfect Father’s Day treat, she tells us that ”I couldn’t think of a better way to spoil my Dad this Father’s Day but to make homemade bread for him and slather it in brown butter topped with fresh fruit, cheese, herbs, and yes, more brown butter!” There is an extra special summer-style celebratory twist on these brown butter crostini with the rich, nutty flavor of butter, the sweetness of fresh fruit and the earthy hint of herbs. You can find out how to create these brown butter crostini for yourself here .
Crostini are typically topped with meats, cheese or vegetables, however by adding fruit, we’re giving this recipe a summer spin. The best part is the brown butter! Starting with Stirling Creamery Whey Butter, add it to heat and swirl until it begins to change colour. Top tip: Use a light colored pan for this part, so you can see the subtle changes to the butter, and ensure it’s not burnt or overdone. Take it off the heat and let it cool, before slathering all over your breads. The rich nutty flavor of the brown butter will create a fantastic base on your crostini, and amplify your other ingredients for a special touch.
If you are catering a Father’s Day celebration,we guarantee these will go down a storm! Share your celebrations by getting in touch on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest or Instagram, or tag your photographs using #BestButter. Happy Father’s Day!
You can of course create whatever flavor combinations you like, but Baking For Friends has chosen chocolate marble, raspberry and lemon for the perfect balance of sweet and tart to keep everybody happy. Because these are taster treats, they’re a little bit smaller than regular cupcakes, which means you can make lots too – giving everybody a chance to try each one, and decide on their favorite flavor. It’s hard to choose though: here at Butterball Farms, we’re constantly battling over which ones better! Always an excuse just to try one more…
*Pro Tip: When making this recipe, do not over mix your batter. The more you mix, the denser it becomes and we need to ensure we’ve enough to go around. This will also keep your cupcakes nice and light and fluffy! Win/Win.
Prep Time: 15 minutes.

We love butter sauce! It’s such a staple of our culinary repertoire that we’ve created our Quik Creations recipe selection. We’ve also created a simple yet delicious recipe for you to drizzle over everything from fresh lobster or scallops to the fish of the day. In fact, this spicy butter drizzle works perfectly with everything from fresh pasta to grilled corn — you’ll want to make it for a whole host of your summer faves. Five ingredients in five minutes – here’s how simple it is! What you’ll need:
125 ml Churn 84 Salted Butter
1 tbsp Hot Sauce
Gently melt the butter in a pan, and add cayenne pepper and chili flakes to taste. We went with three small pinches of each for the perfect balance, however if you like things a little hotter, you can of course add a little more. Last of all, add in one tablespoon of hot sauce and stir gently. The spice of the pepper, chili and hot sauce cuts though the rich and creamy flavor of the Churn 84 European Style butter to create a simple, dream dressing, made in under five minutes!
We’re not joking when we say that you’ll want to try this on everything – top off your dish with some shredded parsley for a pop of freshness and transform your seafood, pasta or vegetables in seconds.
