Where to buy grass-fed yogurt?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created November 26, 2012 at 7:21 AM

I'm having a hard time finding grass fed yogurt. I realize it's not the most Paleo food but my daughter eats it and if I don't give it to her she'll likely end up eating something worse. Where can I find it? I tried the mother of all Whole Foods, in downtown Austin, but no luck. At least none of the brands advertises it. Also nothing at Sprouts. Organic Valley seems to make pastured everything else except yogurt for some reason.

I agree! Maple Hill Creamery is the best grass-fed yogurt out there. The plain yogurt is just organic milk from grass-fed cows, with yogurt cultures. Nothing more. Nothing less! And it's delicious. To me, the grass-fed milk makes a world of difference. The yogurt feels fluffy and lighter, even though it's full fat. I believe that's because the grass-fed yogurt has more "good fat" that healthy, and less "bad fat" that produces bad cholesterol. Anyway, I believe Maple Hill is big in Texas.

How are you maintaining 110 for the process? Are you heating past 118? Thanks!

Our grass-fed cows milk yogurt is in central market in Austin, but that is the only place. The goat milk is at least 12 months out. We literally are just in the process of building the new dairy for them.

I second making your own. Cheaper and you have total control of the ingredients.

Hey everyone,

I own Dreaming Cow yogurt. I've been doing some research on the Paleo diet and its relationship with yogurt when I came across this posting.

There are not many places in the country where you can grow year-round grass, and South Georgia (where we are) is one of them. We have grass 365 days a year and a grand total of zero confinement facilities. Most of the time, grass-fed dairies in areas where it snows have to grow a bunch of stored feed and house their animals in confinement barns in the winter. We are extremely fortunate that our climate allows us to farm the way we do.

Someone mentioned that Atlanta Fresh is grass-fed. They actually source their milk from confinement farms who are feeding corn silage and total mixed rations (like southernswissdairy.com). I'm not sure why they advertise they are grass-fed. I imagine it is because they aren't farmers and don't really understand the difference. Either way, one thing the grass-fed dairy industry lacks is solid standards.

We are expanding to offer grass-fed greek yogurt, kefir and eventually fluid milk on a near national scale in 2013. Just as soon as this new factory is completed, we will start launching new products.

Now I have a question for your community. Is there an interest in goat greek yogurt? It would have to retail for something like $3.29 per cup (goat milk is very expensive to make, and greek yogurt is roughly a 25% yield of that milk), but it would be delicious.

Regards,

Kyle

If you can get your hands on milk from pastured cows, try making it yourself. It's super easy and tastes so much better!

In Northern California we have Strauss Family Creamery Greek yogurt, but I'm not sure if it's available elsewhere. Whole Foods carries it here.

Go to a local farmer who has grass(or hay) fed cows, go milk a cow, check out this link here on how to make yogurt, and don't forget the blueberries.

I buy Maple Hill creamery. They are 100% grass fed from their farm but sometimes supplement from amish farms around them. They're definitely in New York, but I believe are also now along the Northeast and Midwest. I've met the owners and they're great. http://www.maplehillcreamery.com/Maple_Hill/Home.html

Traderspoint Creamery... 100% grass-fed cows. They make cheese, yogurt, and ice cream. The yogurt in particular is packaged in a cute glass jar. I am allergic to cows milk but can have grass-fed cows milk. I am allergic to yogurt but can have probiotic yogurt.

Yeah, I'm weird.

I buy mine at Whole Foods. It can be requested at other stores. It is over $2.50 regular price and $1.50 on sale. It is light an yummy. Feels good in the tummy.

As far as brand yogurts go, it may be worth checking out Olympus Greek Yogurt, which I just discovered myself - if this is carried in your area. I don't think the yogurt is always or entirely from grass-fed cows (as they would most definitely advertise this more explicitly), but according to company info:

"Animals are fed only grass and grains grown near the company’s production facilities in Thessaly, Larissa and Trikala regions in the heartland of Greece. The milk coming from select cows that graze on special pastureland, contains no genetically modified organisms (non-GMO)..."

http://www.prweb.com/releases/2012/5/prweb9555424.htm

For what its worth, I think it tastes a lot better than Fage (which was never grass-fed, but a few months ago they quietly reduced the fat in their "full fat" yogurt so I stopped buying it.)

Its also no more expensive than other Greek yogurt, at least around here.

Try the Wheatsville Coop, or the farmers market. It was really hard to find grass fed dairy in Austin when I was there last year, but those were the two places that I was able to find it.

Whole Foods in Nashville sells Dreaming Cow. Their plain, cream-top is very good!

I'm not in your area but I lived in FL and now live in TN. The two grass-fed yogurts I've tried are these:

Dreaming Cow is delicious! And they seem to sell in Austin, TX area.

Hope that helps!

I've never seen grass fed yogurt, not even grass fed milk around here. You might be able to get it from a farmer that has grass cows and then make it yourself.
