Daniel spent many hours with Roland, patiently learning
about taste and texture, patience and preparation. Using
old wooden churns, he learned firsthand how the slow-churn
process is essential to producing a creamy, delicious
butter. He also learned that butter should be made with
only the freshest cream, and nothing else. Patient, careful
attention to the butter-making process, together with
a commitment to using all-natural ingredients, remain
the foundation of the Patry family philosophy today.
Daniel produced his delicious sweet cream butter for
family and friends for many years. He finally decided
to introduce it to the market in 1981.
The slow-churn process, one batch at a time, is still
used today at our modern facility in Old Orchard Beach,
Maine. We want to give people the same natural, flavorful
butter that we enjoyed in the 'old days,' when it was
made fresh daily on the farm…the way it should be.
The Patry family is proud that the tradition of quality,
freshness and flavor continues at Kate's Homemade Butter.
In 2005 Dan's son Lucas joined the company.
