Green Pastures Butter Oil/Cod Liver Oil Blend; The Good, the Bad, and the Alternatives
At Peaceful Planet, we can’t get enough of Green Pastures. We could speak for hours about the company’s old-world processing methods and its incredible Cod Liver Oil, Butter Oil, and Skate Fish Oil products. The Green Pastures mission to bring a Fermented Cod Liver Oil along with a High Vitamin Butter Oil to the market requires an incredible passion and dedication to the Weston A. Price philosophy. Adhering to no-heat processing methods and utilizing high-vitamin ingredient sources ensures that Green Pastures products are the highest quality, most bioavailable supplements we can find.
So, if we can’t get enough of Green Pastures, what could possibly be bad? Well, we literally can’t get enough. Green Pastures Butter Oil and Butter Oil/Cod Liver Blend supply cannot always meet the increasing market demand. High Vitamin Butter Oil can only be extracted from a specific kind of butter from the milk of particular cows grazing on especially green pasture grass during a limited number of months of the year. If each one of these conditions is not present and optimal for producing High Vitamin Butter Oil, Green Pastures does not try to bottle and sell it. They don’t take any shortcuts; it’s either the very best or nothing at all, which means that certain factors will negatively impact the Butter Oil supply from year to year. During leaner years when these supply limitations arise, you will find that Green Pastures Butter Oil and Green Pastures Butter Oil/Cod Liver Oil blend is out of stock or on backorder from many suppliers. This year, a drought affected the pastures where the cows graze, causing a supply shortage. Peaceful Planet’s inventory was affected this week, and we have been filling orders as soon as the product comes in. Unfortunately, the popular Green Pastures Butter Oil/Cod Liver Blend is currently out of stock for the next few weeks, until approximately March 18, 2013. The stock shortage is predicted to wax and wane through June of 2013, when we expect that it will be business as usual for our supply of Green Pastures. Throughout the spring, Green Pastures will only be able to produce a limited amount of Butter Oil and Butter Oil/Cod Liver Oil Blends, as there is only a certain amount of butter oil that their cows can produce.
If You Need Your Green Pastures Shipment Now:
1. Currently, the easiest and fastest solution to skirting the butter oil shortage is to purchase 1 bottle of butter oil and 2 bottles of fermented cod liver oil, a four-month supply, which will ensure that you are well-stocked all the way to July, when the supply shortage will resolve. Peaceful Planet has both the unflavored and orange-flavored Cod Liver Oils in stock, and has Butter Oil in stock as well. You can find these low-priced combo packs here.
2. Alternately, using Green Pastures Skate Liver Oil in place of High Vitamin Butter oil will give you the same X-Factor you have been getting from your High Vitamin Butter Oil. Purchasing 1 bottle of Skate Liver Oil and 2 bottles of Fermented Cod Liver Oil (in either orange or plain) will also give you a four-month supply and is a great substitution for High Vitamin Butter Oil. You can find these low-priced combo packs here.
