Production Date: 4/2013
If you have been looking to add REAL canned butter, not powdered or Freeze Dried, to your long term food storage program, than look no further!
For the first time in our history of offering MRE's, canned and freeze dried foods, we have found a canned butter that is imported from New Zealand that actually tastes better than any gourmet butter we had ever tried and with an indefinite shelf life, no refrigeration is necessary! This butter has a production date of April 2013.
GREAT FOR CAMPING! PERFECT FOR THE BOAT OR RV!
For years we've had people ask us about storable butter, and we've had to turn them away. Now you can have smooth, creamy, high-quality butter . . . and who cares if the electricity goes off?
And the best part (besides the great taste), is the list of ingredients; Pasteurized Cream and Salt - that's it! No preservatives, food colorings or chemicals of any kind, just naturally made wholesome butter from down under.
Speaking of ingredients, here's what the label lists for nutritional info compared to the American butter that we are all used to today:

This can contains 12 oz of butter - which works out to three traditional sticks of butter, and this package is for 1 can total.
NOTE: Minor denting that will not affect shelf life may occur with some cans during transit no matter how well we pack them. Please let us know if any of your canned foods have dents that will affect the shelf life and you won't be refrigerating soon as we may need to make a UPS claim.
Shelf Life Note From The Supplier:
Canned long shelf life food has a shelf life of at least two years from the date of processing. Canned long shelf life food retains its safety and nutritional value well beyond two years, but it may have some variation in quality, such as a change of color and texture. Canning is a high-heat process that renders the food commercially sterile. Food safety is not an issue in products kept on the shelf or in the pantry for long periods of time. In fact, canned food has an almost indefinite shelf life at moderate temperatures (75F and below). Canned food as old as 100 years has been found in sunken ships and it is still microbiologically safe! We don't recommend keeping long shelf life canned food for 100 years, but if the can is intact, not dented or bulging, it is edible.
With over 100 years of History, Red Feather was introduced in the United States three years ago.
Canned food labels have tendency to peel off over time, especially if they are kept for years in your basement. In order to prevent this, put a coat of shellac over the label as soon as you get them. This way, you will always know what's in the can years later.
10/24/08 - We recently picked up some great long shelf life canned foods and they are selling even better than we expected. I decided to do a taste test today on a few of them and we're all shocked at how good they are. I opened up a can each of the bacon, turkey chunks, pork sausage and the bread. None of us liked the bread. However all the rest are awesome! I think we all like the bacon the best. There is quite a bit of full bacon strips (not dehydrated and ready to eat right out of the can) wrapped in wax paper in the can. I eat all kinds of crazy things, but Lisa, David and Loree also loved the canned turkey, canned pork sausage and the canned bacon. It surprised me how tasty and full of flavor they all are. In fact, we're all filing up on it and are having it for lunch today. The three cans of meats is more than enough food for the 4 of us. The bread isn't horrible. We all agree that it kind of tastes like molasses bread that has been in a can. I know, not a very good description, but it's the best we can do for now. The bread is moist and a little crumbly, but doesn't compare to the full, rich flavor of the other long shelf life canned foods we tested. Over time, we might do taste tests on more of our canned foods, but I hope this gives you a good idea of all our long shelf life canned foods since they come from the same company.
01/16/09 - We started offering these canned foods just a few months ago and they are already among our best selling products. We stock more and more of these long shelf life canned foods every week. We have a steady, current and brand new supply and get more every week. We ship them out almost as quickly as we get them. We are also preparing one year food supplies with these items so stay tuned for that. We are also adding new canned food items every month. Even though they are moving so fast, we're doing great on shipping times. These long shelf life canned foods ship from our warehouse in Upstate NY.

There is no expiration date on any of the Yoder's cans because we go through the expense of doing an accelerated shelf life study on all of the products we develop. If you can prove that the shelf life is equal or great to 5 years, the USDA and FDA doesn't require a "Best By" or "Expiration" date.
However, they do require a date of manufacture be on the can. In the case of all the Yoder's Products we stamp the date on the bottom of the can in a Julian format. You will notice that there are two lines of numbers and letters on the bottom lid the first one is the date. The letter you usually see is the line it was produced on, and the next 4 digits is the date. Of the 4 numbers, the first one represents the year and the next 3 numbers are the day of the year (out of 365 days).
For example, if you see something like B8336, B would be the production line the rice was assembled on (more for our tracking purposes as required by the USDA), 8 would be for 2008 and 336 would be for the 336th day of the year or translated using the below "Day of the Year" calendar.
TIP >>> Another thing to consider is stocking food for emergency preparedness is fat. In many difficult situations you could be under very strenuous activity and you may also only have powdered milk for growing children that need fat to grow their bodies and brains. Powdered milk and other food and drink products will be missing that important fat. This canned butter is a great source of fat and you could even add a tablespoon to your powdered milk to give it that good fat content, or simply add it to other foods. With such a terrific shelf life and great tastes this canned butter is an extremely important part of emergency preparedness plan if you can manage to keep from eating it on a daily basis. You will be truly surprised at how good this butter is.

- This product tastes great, stores for an indefinite time at 60-65 Degrees F and is indispensable in cooking and enhancing marginally palatable foods on hand to extend your survival stores. Perfect for serious barter WTSHTF and refrigerators are history. Did we mention it has great taste?!
Red Feather Butter
- Will buy more, we<br>love it! Thank you!
Red Feather Butter
- Bought a few cans to try it out first. Took them with us on a camping trip in the Bitter-Roots. This butter may be better than the store bought stuff!! So I bought a full case. Thanks for such a good product!!
Red Feather Butter
- This is REAL butter. It tastes like real butter because it is. It melts great. Use it like you would in any recipe or just plain on your piece of bread. <br>The huge advantage here is that it stores well without refrigeration. This makes it perfect for food storage and for the times when you forget to pick some up at the store during your grocery shopping.
- My husband and I tried our canned butter last night and it was great! It actually tasted better than the regular butter we usually buy. As soon as it comes back in stock I plan to buy several cans for our hiking and 4 wheeling trips.
- I won a can of butter and cheese a few weeks ago and was saving the cheese for a special occasion. I finally gave in and opened it today. It was very tasty and had a smooth texture. It was a lot sharper then I expected it to be, which was a pleasant surprise!
really IS the best
- Howdy Camping Survival! I once a recent contest where I received a free can of Red Feather Butter and Cheese! You asked for testimonial, and this is one. I\'ve popped open the butter to have on some sourdough loaf with my clam chowder for the evening, and I have to say, it really IS the best better I\'ve had in a long ti...me. Can\'t wait to try the cheese next!
mmm Canned Butter
- I was lucky enough to win one of these babies in a facebook give-away. I opened it up this morning and tried it on some toast for breakfast. It was really, amazingly good. I\'d even say it was a little bit better then my usual butter. This isn\'t \"camping survival\"" if you pack it along on a camping trip... it\'s Fine Dining in the middle of the wilderness."
