Dear Erivan,

I love your yogurt. I practically don’t eat any other yogurt, unless I can’t find Erivan. It’s the perfect yogurt: perfect richness, perfect tartness, perfect sweetness. And, I love that your cows have names. Every time I eat Erivan, I wonder if what’s going in my mouth came from Violet or Autumn, or one of the other girls. I love simple food, and having a simple relationship with my food. If only the rest of the world operated with this motto.

Thank you for keepin’ it real.


ps. Have you ever had a cow named “sakura”? It means Cherry Blossom in Japanese. I think it would be a very cute name for a cow 🙂
