I have never written a food company before, but I just have to tell you that I LOVE the organic yogurt! This yogurt… is delicious and has a great texture. Delicious, healthy, and hormone-free!

It is such a relief to feel comfortable with what I am putting into my kids bodies, and I definitely feel that way with your products. We drive ~two hours every couple of weeks to get milk… Your products are such a blessing to us!

Our Services

Farmers Creamery, the makers of the Kalona SuperNatural brand, produce minimally-processed, organic dairy products. Kalona SuperNatural organic products are among the most supremely natural and nutritious dairy products on the market. That’s because we believe in doing less—not more—when it comes to our food. Our milk comes from small, sustainable farms with average herds of 35 cows. We process the milk at the lowest temperature possible, allowing us to deliver our products in their most natural state. Learn more about Kalona SuperNatural products at www.kalonasupernatural.com.
