There’s a Subscription for That: Butter

There’s a Subscription For That is a new series spotlighting subscriptions the team at My Subscription Addiction finds interesting and is excited to share with readers. 

Alright, buckle up. Things are about to get serious. 

In the past, we’ve shown you subscriptions for everything from high-end cocktails to microgreens. We’ve reviewed craft olive oil and cured meats. Honestly, we were starting to think we’d seen it all. Well, dear reader, we most certainly had not. Today we’re sharing with you something new. Something luxurious in its simplicity, yet so utterly indulgent we had to do a double-take when it first crossed our desk. We are, of course, talking about butter. Yes, believe it or not, there’s a subscription for that. 

Ploughgate Creamery is located at Bragg Farm in Fayston, Vermont. It’s owned and operated by butter maker and entrepreneur, Marissa Mauro, and the creamery has been churning out delicious creaminess since 2014. Ploughgate’s butter is made the old-fashioned, European way, so it may be a little different than the sticks you’re used to buying at the grocery store. It’s made with cream from a local 4th generation dairy farm, and live cultures are added to the cream before churning which results in a flavor that’s tangy, rich, and super creamy.

You can place a one-time order for Ploughgate’s cultured butter in their online store, but for $28.00 per month, they’ll make sure your fridge stays stocked with small-batch, hand-crafted butter. The Butter Lover Subscription sends three 8 oz. butter blocks every single month: one block of Coarse Sea Salt, a block of Vermont Maple, plus a rotating flavor. Seasonal flavors are inspired by “farm, travels, and collaborators” and run the gamut from “savory to sweet to seasonal.” Past flavors have included Za’atar, Seaweed, Chive Flower, Balsamic Fig, and Esplette.

The Details

  • The Butter Lover Subscription Box contains three 8oz. blocks of butter.
  • Costs $28.00 per month.
  • Shipping costs are extra.
  • Boxes ship out on the third Tuesday of every month.
  • Each shipment contains one block of Coarse Sea Salt butter, one Vermont Maple, and a special flavor of the month.
  • Not ready to commit to a subscription? You can place a one-time order in Ploughgate’s online store.

Not a big fan of maple syrup, so a monthly block of maple syrup flavored butter would not get used.

I signed up for their email list, so I may end up ordering something at some point.

I love the idea of this,but it’s just too expensive with the shipping. I actually made butter last week (using the Mason jar!) and now I’m inspired to actually make more and and in flavors. It would definitely be cheaper (plus, I would get in some good arm workouts!)

The title of this recurring series, if you will, is spot on. I did NOT know there was a sub for butter. I’ve been going along my butter-loving days with Land O Lakes (salted, half sticks, and I find it very good) and the occasional delicious Kerrygold (I like to keep most of my butter at room temp, and Kerrygold turns to soup in the summer with no central AC), plus some nice ghee for frying eggs and other things. I felt that the buttery aspects of my life were fulfilled. Then MSA had to go and drop this “butter sub” on me.

I’m gonna do it. I am going to sub this buttery box. As a dedicated low-carber, it will compliment my Keto Krate sub quite nicely. Now to just fight the urge to sub one of those monthly meat boxes…

I recently started seeing Land O Lakes European style butter at the grocery stores (Detroit area). It’s a standard one pound box, but you could probably freeze what you’re not using, assuming you have freezer space.

Diamond

Oof. At first I was alright well the price seems fine to try fancy butter… Then the shipping :O

I declined and said I don’t need a lot of high fats anyhow.

I’ll just eat avocados.

Carol

Ooh, that’s some fancy butter, and I love butter.

tpop

$29 per pound. I wonder if a cow costs that much?

Lexi

Omg. If only this shipped to Canada… I’d have all my birthday gift shopping sorted for a year!

And what sucks is that of all places in the US, Vermont is one of the closest to Canada! I know, your part of Canada might be thousands of miles away from Vermont, but the visual of some butter-loving, subscription-box-addicted Canadian folks carpooling to the Canada/Vermont border once a month for their butter subs made me smile (and I hope you too!) 🙂

Kristin

Please review these food subs when you introduce them, I want to know thoughts on quality, shipping and taste. Would you pay your own money etc. I’d be more enticed to sub with first hand knowledge.

Marion

I recently tried a bougie “hand crafted” sea salt butter from Imperfect Foods, and holy cow that stuff is good!

I’m afraid to try something like this bc I would definitely fall in love. 😂

Poppy

Yikes! Shipping would be $36 for me. Bummer.

plastic_cup

$16 shipping here. Gonna check the farmers market for butter instead!

Wendy

Same for me, $36 shipping to Georgia.

Anna

I have to say, this is my new favorite segment from you guys! Haha loved the oyster one
