The Story of Barney Butter
Barney Butter was conceived by Jennifer Barney in her Fresno, California home for friends and family. She began experimenting with homemade almond butter for the simple reason that she was unhappy with the other almond butters on the market. She knew that almond butter would be healthier for her peanut butter-loving kids and she wanted them to grab for it on their own without any big fuss. Many broken blenders later, her recipe was perfected.
Pretty soon friends and neighbors were trying it and everyone really thought it was revolutionary. People started calling it 'Barney Butter', so the name stuck. Some just wanted it for the taste, but others had real needs like lowering cholesterol or as a peanut alternative. With much encouragement from friends and family she manufactured her first batch of just 20 cases in 2006 and took a jar to a local grocer. It was an instant success! Today Barney Butter has s-p-r-e-a-d to independent and national grocery stores all across the country so now you too can be good to yourself and eat Barney Butter!
With its amazing fresh roasted flavor and truly smooth and creamy consistency Barney Butter stands apart from other almond butters and has quickly become a favorite treat for adults and children alike!!
