Dairy Spotlight: Organic Valley Introduces New Grassmilk® Yogurt Flavors: Black Cherry and Peach



Nation's No. 1 organic grass-fed dairy brand now offers 6 delicious flavors of award-winning yogurt

LA FARGE, Wis., June 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Organic Valley is adding two delicious new flavors to its award-winning, 100 percent grass-fed yogurt line. Beginning in July, Black Cherry and Peach Grassmilk Yogurt will be available in single-serve cups. These will complement the current lineup of Strawberry, Wild Blueberry, Plain and Vanilla flavors. Multi-serve tubs continue to be available in Plain and Vanilla.

Organic Valley's Grassmilk Yogurt is produced from the milk of cows that eat only fresh grasses and dried forages—never any grain. This makes for a premium yogurt with a flavor that reflects the "terroir" of 100 percent grass-fed dairy from the nation's largest cooperative of organic farmers. The two new flavors feature organic black cherries from Oregon and organic peaches from California.

Nutritionally, these yogurts are rock stars: they boast 6 grams of protein per serving, naturally occurring calcium, higher levels of beneficial omega-3 and CLA fatty acids, and live probiotic cultures. The yogurt is created in small batches and contains only clean, straightforward ingredients. And of course, Organic Valley never uses antibiotics, synthetic hormones, toxic pesticides or GMOs.

"The 100 percent grass-fed yogurt cups appeal to people looking for premium yogurt with extraordinary flavor, nutritional excellence and grab-and-go convenience," said Scarlet Paolicchi, busy mom and founder of Family Focus Blog. "They really are a creamy, delicious treat and I just love them."

The new flavors of Organic Valley Grassmilk Yogurt cups will be available in July 2017 in natural food stores, food cooperatives and major grocery chains nationwide with a SRP of $1.69.

Dairy Spotlight: The Grass Keeps Getting Greener: Maple Hill Creamery Launches 100% Grass-Fed Organic Whole Milk


KINDERHOOK, N.Y., March 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Maple Hill Creamery fans have reason to celebrate as the company today announces its introduction of 100% Grass-Fed Organic Whole Milk. This significant product launch is a response to consumer demand, moving Maple Hill Creamery into the fluid milk category as it broadens its market reach, evolving from a yogurt company to a full-fledged dairy company.

Sourced exclusively from the family-owned farms of the Maple Hill Milkshed (geographical region producing milk for Maple Hill Creamery) in New York State, this new fluid milk product has the delicious and distinctive flavor found only in milk from 100% grass-fed cows and is available in a family-sized 64-ounce half gallon. A one-cup serving contains 150 calories, 8 grams of fat, 12 grams of carbohydrates, 8 grams of protein, and 30% of the Daily Value for calcium.

"We're so excited to finally be able to offer milk to our customers and consumers. The rapid growth of our Maple Hill Milkshed (now topping out at 108 certified 100% grass-fed farms) has allowed us to expand and enter the fluid milk category, which is becoming more segmented, specialized, and dynamic," said Tim Joseph, CEO and founding farmer of Maple Hill Creamery.

Consumer demand for 100% grass-fed milk now outweighs the price sensitivity usually associated with this routine, staple grocery item. "Our yogurt fans have been asking for whole milk—'whole milk for their families'—for years," said Joseph. "We're hoping that this product will both expand our brand growth and also raise awareness about all the awesome benefits of 100% grass-fed dairy."

Maple Hill Creamery's story dates back to 2009 when Tim and Laura Joseph started selling their 100% grass-fed organic yogurt made from cow's milk sourced from their 250-acre dairy farm. Eight years later, Maple Hill Creamery now sources milk from over 100 dairy farms (all certified 100% grass-fed organic) across New York State. In parallel to the growth of Maple Hill's Milkshed, the company launched numerous artisanal-quality 100% grass-fed organic products, including Cream On Top Yogurt, Whole Milk Greek Yogurt, Whole Milk Drinkable Yogurt, Whole Milk "Cleaner" Kefir, as well as raw milk cheeses. Maple Hill Creamery's products are currently sold at nearly 6,000 retailers nationwide.

Additional Packaging Information:

  • USDA & PCO Certified Organic
  • Third Party Certified 100% Grass-Fed
  • Kosher Certified
  • Homogenized
  • ½ gallon 64 oz.

Since day one, Maple Hill has stood by their conviction that 100% grass-fed organic dairy farming is better for everyone from cows to consumers. 100% grass-fed dairy farming produces the highest quality milk, supports the healthiest lifestyle for cows, improves the fertility of grazing land, and allows farmers to prosper.

About the company

Oddly enough, the roots of EPIC were planted shortly after Katie and I became vegetarians. We wrongly believed that a “clean diet” was plant based and in order to replenish our bodies after hard workouts, we consumed large amounts of soy and other highly processed proteins.

To compound the stress we were putting on our systems, we followed the advice of sports nutrition “experts” and prescribed to a diet that was high in carbohydrates and low in fat. As a result, we were making ourselves unintentionally sick with gastrointestinal distress and a myriad of inflammatory ailments.

Not knowing what to do, we decided to go vegan and when things got worse, we decided to follow a raw food diet.

Snack Spotlight: EPIC Beef Liver & Beef with Sea Salt Bites



Ancient cultures around the globe have long valued organ meats as a primary staple to the human diet. These once cherished and wholesome foods nourished indigenous cultures for thousands of years. Often, hunters would disregard the "prized" lean meats of modern culture and feed them to their dogs. Alternately, these hunters would instinctively preserve the heart, kidney, and pancreas to feed those dependent upon them. Of all organ meats, the liver was cherished as the most sacred. It was believed to nourish the body and optimize the well-being of those who consumed it.

In the spirit of innovation and the quest to create wholesome meat snacks, we are excited to share an EPIC limited edition organ meat snack unlike anything you have ever seen. Our Liver Jerky Bites allow you to conveniently reintroduce a wholesome staple food that has fueled human evolution for over 250,000 years. When it comes to EPIC nutrition, our Liver Jerky Bites are truly a different animal.
