We were in the Foreign Service and stationed in Belgrade, Yugoslavia in the
early 1980’s. We used to buy the Bulgarian natural yogurt which was available
there on a sporadic basis. It was possible to add milk to the yogurt when our
supply was about exhausted and culture a new batch from the live bacteria. One
day one of our daughters added sugar to our stash and that killed the bacteria
and ended our production line. When we returned to the US I missed good yogurt
and, for years, would buy anything new on the grocery shelves in hopes of
finding the “real thing.” Most were cloyingly sweet with all sorts of sugary
additives and others were just “blah.” Finally, years later, we recently
happened on Erivan in our Whole Foods store. Eureka! We have been a steady
customer for Erivan ever since. It’s natural, tart, clean taste is like
deliverance from the shelves of adulterated product. Thanks you so much – and
keep up the good work!
Just came across your yogurt at the Whole Foods in Plymouth Meeting, PA. Saw your address and thought, I had to try it – since you are a local farm. And boy, I’m so glad I did! It’s the most perfect tart tasting yogurt out there. My four year old asked for a scoop – she never eats plain yogurt – she said she loved it, then smiled and asked for more!
Thanks so much! 🙂
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 🙂
I came across your yogurt four or five years ago, in an “upscale” grocery store…I shop there once every six weeks for “special” items. I go there especially for your Erivan Yogurt. As compared to other “commercial” yogurts, your product seems like it was made by early American Colonists who took pride in their recipe, cared about their family’s health, and the well being of their greatly valued cows.
It smells great, it tastes great (a bit tart and so alive!)…even my small dogs love to have some in their bowls every day! When I have gone off plain yogurt, I have had slight health issues such as yeast overgrowths and colds. But since I have made it part of my healthier diet plan now, your acidopholis all natural yogurt makes me feel like I can do anything! I am not kidding.

I moved to California 10 years ago and have morned your yogurt!
Visiting cape cod for 2weeks has allowed me to eat it EVERY DAY
I have eaten your AMAZING YOGURT for about 30 years and have to eat my fill
when I visit the east coast!!
Just needed to tell you guys and cows that your yogurt is the world’s best ever
No one can top your product!
Thank you for my 2 weeks of heaven!
I just had to let you know how happy I am to have found your yogurt. It is by far the best yogurt I’ve ever had. I drive an hour and fifteen minutes to purchase it from Whole Foods and usually buy 5 or 6 containers at a time. My 10 year old daughter is also madly in love with it. It makes me so happy every time she requests a bowl of Erivan yogurt and blueberries. Thanks again!
Hi good people and cows of Erivan heaven! :o)
I’m addicted to yogurt since I was 5 years old. Moving from my motherland to Sweden maid it possible for me to try every single yogurt there was, during the summer holly days when we travel around Europe I kept on trying just because I love yogurt.
When I came here for almost two years now I was dreading a life without yogurt but I started with my search for THE yogurt. It took me 1 year and 2-3 month to find your Erivan.
I was passing the yogurt aisle in Whole Food with a most depressing look (because I couldn’t find The One) when a word just jump out from its container: Acidophilus! Could it be?
Finally at home, I open the container, smell it and felt my expectations grow, I took a spoonful and try it. Yes, finally! At last I found The One. This is almost the same as the one I eat in Sweden.
Thank you so much for the yogurt, thanks all the cows, please hug n kiss theme from me.
Love your yogurt! I was getting tired of picking up every single different “natural” and “healthy” yogurt brand, only to find they ALL had junk in them, even if it was organic junk 🙂 Then I picked up your brand. It wasn’t fancy, but it didn’t have anything in it but what I wanted. And, when I took it home and tried it, I found it delicious! Thanks so much for your dedication to old fashioned quality and for making the complicated simple!

To ALL that contribute to making this wonderful yogurt,
My dad use to make yogurt, I’m talking over 40 years ago. Yours is the only yogurt that even compares; some have come only close… but yours is spot on.
Thank you for making this wonderful yogurt.

Your yogurt is doing wonders for my stomach! It is a staple in my diet and is one of my keys to true health. I’ve tried other yogurts and there just simply isn’t any other yogurt out there that encompasses what yogurt should be. Your product is 100% consistent. Who can argue with all those active cultures!!! This stuff is the yogurt of the gods!! For sure! I recommend it to any one trying to re constitute a balance of good and bad bacteria in the body. Erivan yogurt will keep you healthy, happy and regular too! I’m so blessed to have discovered Erivan yogurt, for it really is my secret to staying completely healthy year in and year out. 🙂
