I've never heard of free range butter, I must try it and see if there's any difference.

It's a marketing ploy. Most butter is free range. If dairy cows get put out to pasture they are free range. I know some are kept indoors in large dairies, but even then most still have access to outside space so could still be classified as free range. Plus it is made with New Zealand milk, not British.

Price is fair enough, but Lidl do Welsh butter for less. That will probably be free range too and not shipped halfway round the world!

In your dreams most butter is free range!
Where do you get these ideas from!?

They would all be shouting it if they could, but they simply can not!
The milk industry in this country is pretty much as intensive farming as it gets, although thankfully still isn't as bad as the systems common in some countries, but they are trying, with more and more herds never seeing so much as daylight! :-(

As with Lellie, in these times of financial hardship I'd rather support our British and Irish farmers as they are the mainstay of food production in this country. I also support the need to buy more locally to reduce the carbon footprint and this is something that is going to become more prevailent as fuel prices continue to escalate!

Then this whole site is going to be pretty much useless to you then, and you are going to be paying a premium price for products that are not necessarily as good as the cheaper ones! I like the principle, but unfortunately, I don't have the money for all the "niceties."

Fuel prices do continue to escalate, but remember that the next big rise is purely from Taxation by the Tory Government, VAT at an extra 2.5% is going to add over 3p to a litre of diesel,(plus another duty on top of that I believe!) which will have a bigger impact on UK based products than those from abroad!

Using the words 'free range' is a bit of a marketing joke, really, given that the stuff travels 11,000 miles in a frozen state, and is months old by the time we get it:

Dairy Crest, attempting to promote its British-made Country Life butter, has launched adverts across the country showing rival brand Anchor butter travelling 11,000 miles on a rusty ship from New Zealand. A farmhouse cottage below this represents Country Life production.

i buy the cheapest butter, anchor is best though :D

had to buy lurpack today as asda are doing 2 for £2 both anchor and lurpack, only 1 pack of anchor though, perhaps its the wrong type of snow for the boat, or perhaps thousands of asda customers know anchor tastes better :D

What has distance and time or the means of transport got to do with being free range or not? Does it make a differnce if it came ona horse and cart?
You might as well say it's not free range because it's the wrong colour or the wrong shape!

Call a product for it's good or bad points, but it is what it claims, free range!
