Stonyfield Review & Giveaway!!

Ever been to Greece??  I haven't, but Stonyfield generously gave me the chance to sample a taste of Greece by sending me free coupons for their Organic Oikos Greek Yogurt!  I chose to go with the Blueberry Oikos Yogurt.  At first, I was a little hesistant to try it, but this morning I ate some for breakfast.  It was very good!  The texture was thicker and creamier than regular yogurt.  The Oikos Yogurt I tried, came in a 4 oz. 4 pack.  Oikos flavors include blueberry, honey, plain, caramel, vanilla, strawberry, and chocolate.  These are just the right size for great snacks to pack along for a picnic, school lunch , and for little children!!

Delicious!


There once was a little farming school

We started on a farm in Wilton, New Hampshire in 1983. We began as a farming school that taught sustainable agricultural practices. Our goals were to help family farms survive and to help protect the environment.

Samuel Kaymen, one of the country’s early authorities on organic and bio-dynamic agriculture, was our school’s founder and chairman. Gary Hirshberg, our current president and CE-Yo, was an environmental activist, windmill-maker, author, and noted entrepreneur when he joined Samuel on the farm.

At first, we sold yogurt only to fund our school. We had a leaky barn and just a few Jersey cows, but also a great recipe for scrumptious yogurt. Samuel and Gary did most of the work back then. They milked the cows, made the yogurt, made sales calls, and even delivered the yogurt.

And the school became a yogurt company
As our business grew, we realized a successful yogurt company could make a bigger difference for family farms and the environment than our school could, so we decided to run with yogurt. In 1988, we moved 30 miles east of Wilton to our custom-designed Yogurt Works in Londonderry, NH, where we remain to this day.

Now our organic ingredient purchases help to support hundreds of family farms and keep over 130,000 acres agricultural acres free of toxic pesticides and other chemicals commonly used on nonorganic farms and known to contaminate soil, drinking water, air, and food.

Our pure, delicious organic yogurts, smoothies, soy yogurts, ice cream, and milk are sold in supermarkets, natural food stores and colleges across the country.

 As you can see, Stonyfield offers many healthy organic dairy products, that you and your family can enjoy.  (Available at Wal-Mart, Meijer, etc.)
