Made from Grass Fed Butter

Only sourced from humane US Dairy Farms, organic butter from pasture-raised grass-fed cows offers a nutrient-dense profile, higher in butterfat and superior in taste.

Natural Source of Vitamins

Rich with Omega Fatty Acids, alkaline prebiotics, and vitamins A and K, ghee is a natural source of essential nutrients.

High Smoke Point

With a smoke point of 485 degrees, ghee is ideal for high-heat cooking. Our cooking process eliminates the milk solids that burn and oxidize.

100% Good Fat

Comprised of full spectrum short, medium, and long-chain fatty acids, grass-fed ghee is one of the highest natural sources of CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid).

Great for Digestion

Ghee is rich in butyric acid, a short-chain fatty acid used for intestinal wall support. It is also lactose and casein-free, making it a better choice for those with digestive issues.

Nourished by Nature

In Ayurveda, digestive and mental health are deeply connected. Ghee is regarded as the optimal oil for alleviating overall dryness, in the body and the mind.


Our partnerships with humane certified dairy farms in the Northeast USA are a huge part of our story. We’ve met the farmers, we know the cows, and they are very important to us. Farmtrue ghee starts with organic, unsalted butter from pasture-raised, grass-fed cows for the highest nutritional value and exceptional taste.

Is ghee actually good for me?

Yes! Healthy fats such as ghee, avocado, nuts, and olive oil are good for the body and mind. Ghee is particularly good for you because it’s a clean, alkalizing, easy-to-digest, high-heat cooking oil.  When you cook with ghee, all of the nourishment from your food is easily absorbed into the body while also supporting digestion and elimination.  Ghee is also known to support and calm the mind.

What are the health benefits from using ghee?

Ghee is a source of Butyric Acid which promotes good digestion and elimination by keeping the gut lining healthy and protected while also calming inflammation.

Is ghee safe for kids?

Yes!  Kids are some of the biggest ghee fans out there. Ghee is simply one ingredient: organic, grass-fed, unsalted butter and nothing else is added in the process of heating and filtering.

Is it vegan even though it’s technically made from cows?

Ghee is not vegan because it comes from an animal. It is however lactose and casein free.  In the process of making ghee, we filter out all of the dairy sugars and proteins.

So, I can use this on anything I would normally put butter on?

Definitely, we recommend using it as a phenomenal cooking oil AND, it can also be used to spread on toast, pancakes, and vegetables.

What are “good fats”? Is that really a thing?

Good fats really are a thing!  Our body and mind need fat to function at its best.  However, not all fats are good.  Trans fats or hydrogenated oils such as margarine cause inflammation in the body. But, fats such as ghee, avocado, nuts, and seeds, actually support the overall health by the body by reducing inflammation. Ghee also offers the added bonus of supporting good gut health.

Will I see a dramatic physical change after I start using ghee?

Will I see a dramatic physical change after I start using ghee?Generally speaking, when we eat well, we feel and look well. Because ghee is satiating, hydrating, and supports digestion and assimilation of nutrients, you will feel your best!

Is ghee good for my skin, too? How?

Ghee nourishes the body from the inside out.  When ingested, it is deeply hydrating for all of the tissues of the body, including the skin and therefore alleviates dryness. When used topically as in our body oils, it is easily absorbed into the skin and carries all of the benefits of the skin-supporting herbs that we infuse into it.

How is ghee made?

We make ghee by cooking the butter using traditional Ayurvedic practices, removing all of the milk solids, water, and impurities. What’s left is a lactose-free, casein-free, and shelf-stable cooking oil that becomes solid at room temperature.
