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.
