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.
