    from our two pound rolls quarter sticks and eight ounce rolls that are unsalted salted and flavor infused to be distributed nationwide Minerva Dairy still operates from its single location in northeast Ohio and distributes direct to retailers and distributors Its products can be found in the deli and dairy cases as well as the artisan section Consumers know us from our butter products and our target audience is dairy case shoppers and artisan buyers Mueller adds Artisan Butter We are excited about the artisanal butter industry Mueller says We saw an explosion of artisanal cheeses during the 90s and 2000s and we are starting to see that on the butter side People are recognizing that not all butters are created equal There is a flavor that comes out of the butter depending on where it s made and how it s made which are important In May Minerva Dairy is launching eight ounce artisan butter in Garlic Herb Pumpkin Spice Maple Syrup and Maplewood Smoked butter varieties The new flavors can be found in stores mostly on the East Coast and additional flavors will be available seasonally We will still stay with our original product and the two pound roll that was developed during World War II but we are looking forward to the eight ounce size Mueller notes The artisan butter is made using Minerva Dairy s same recipe and the company says its butter production is a slow process because it takes time to churn cream into butter Butter artisans go through about six months of internal training in addition to attending classes at the local universities The main thing with the artisan products is they have to make decisions on a per batch basis Mueller explains For example the size of the curd and the amount of buttermilk that s present It s a labor of love that takes true skill and passion for the work It s a work of art New butter artisans are typically promoted from within to preserve the tradition and authenticity that is needed to continue to make each of Minerva Dairy s quality products It s not possible to recruit someone who is making commodity butter and retrain them to learn how to make authentic butter he says It s a very very different process Pasture Raised Cows Minerva Dairy prides itself on the relationships it has with local family farms The company works with about 60 farms in the area and all the cows are pasture raised It is very important for the customer to realize we have been working with farms for multiple generations Mueller says All our decisions are done on a handshake We don t do contracts because the farms have to be as happy as we are We don t want to lock anyone in to sell their products to us The cows are pasture raised on every family farm Minerva Dairy works with meaning the cows have a choice and lifestyle often not found
