Kerrygold butter, cheeses and Irish cream liqueur are made from the milk of cows that graze on lush, green pastures of small family farms in Ireland for up to 300 days a year. Ireland has one of the longest grass-growing seasons in the world and Kerrygold butter and cheeses are prized for their natural golden color which comes from naturally occurring beta-carotene in the intensely green Irish grass. The distinctive, rich flavor of Kerrygold is revered by home bakers and food connoisseurs in the U.S. and throughout the world.
