At Coburn's Delivers a gallon of Kemps Ice Cream is $8.99, a pound of Hope Butter is $5.99 and a gallon of Kemps Whole Milk is $4.19. Now lets do the math...
Ice Cream takes 1.5 gal of milk. 1.5 gal x $4.19 = $6.28. Cost in store = $8.99
> Leaving room for production and other ingredients. Seems fair.
Hope Butter takes 2.5 gal of milk. 2.5 x $4.19 = $10.47. Cost at store = $5.99
> Wow! Butter is a steal! How do they do that?
I know you can get some butter cheaper, but let's face it -- it's cheaper butter, coming from factory cows and an automated butter factory. Ours comes from local cows from local farmers and made by our butter maker Gene. Buying local supports the local economy. Oh, and have we mentioned the taste?
As one woman put it (unsolicited on the Hope Creamery Facebook Page):
This is, swear on a stack of bibles, the best butter I have ever eaten. I swoon when I put this butter on homemade bread. Seriously. I swoon.
