Product Talk: Brown Cow


Brown CowI don’t know why I like the Brown Cow company packaging but I do. It makes me smile every time I go into Brookshire’s.

I think maybe it’s because my mom used to have this ceramic creamer in the shape of a brown cow. She’d sometimes fill it with milk and let us serve ourselves from it on weekend mornings. We’d fight over who got to use the cow first, of course, and we’d fight over who the cow got to “sit” next to at the kitchen table.

So, the Brown Cow makes me happy.

Brown Cow also makes yogurt lovers happy.

According to the Brown Cow website, “Back in 1973, two self-proclaimed hippies in Ithaca, New York, embraced the idea of “homesteading” and bought a Jersey cow to provide milk for their family. Like all Jerseys, this brown cow, named Lily, made extra-rich and creamy milk. From that milk, her family began making small batches of extra-rich and creamy yogurt, which they shared and sold. And so, Brown Cow Yogurt was born.”

The website also states that “by 1983, Brown Cow had grown a lot and was making its yogurt in both Ithaca, NY and Petaluma, Calif. In 1989, the Ford family bought the company and moved all of its operations to Antioch, California. By 2003, the Fords sold the company that year to the New Hampshire-based yogurt maker Stonyfield Farm. Like Brown Cow, Stonyfield had a long history of environmental stewardship, promoting family farms and making wholesome, delicious yogurts.”

Brown Cow Yogurt is non-GMO, gluten-free, kosher and made with live-active cultures.
