It is great to see their efforts toward sustainability within their factories. Thanks for the behind-the-scenes scoop! I'll have to give their yogurt a try!

I love that you use 100% solar power and that you took baby steps to make your farm organic. You are right, it takes one step at a time to make change.

So inspiring! To use one dairy to provide milk for their yogurt really means a lot to me and shows they really care about their internal relationships as well as the quality of their product. Bravo!

Love Greek Yogurt and love the idea of "local collaboration" and going green - this yogurt is now on my must try list :)

This sounds like a great product. I will gladly try some next time I am in Whole Foods. I am hoping that this is a full fat yogurt. It is almost impossible to find Greek style yogurt which is. Yogurt should be kept as a whole food, that is not separated from the naturally occurring fat because it contains enzymes which help to break the food down. Fat is actually good for you in moderation.

It's quite admirable to know that there are quality products that really make a difference in the planet. The use of solar energy may be the highlight of making a difference in the world, for a better planet. I also admire how the company cares about their employees.

I am moo-ved by their story. I didn't realize that dairies used so much power. Maybe burn some of the methane emitted by the cows? Seriously, it sounds like a great product.

I must say I learned a lot from this article and video. I didn't know about the longevity of this organic farm the two brothers/owners have who are doing "ALL" the right things for our planet from animals to humans. From fair trade with their workers, use of solar panels to conserve energy, maintaining 600 organic cows out of 700 cows on the farm, and converting all new calves to produce organic milk. I commend this farm and Eros for teaming up. I have never tried Eros product but I will now knowing everything I've learned about these companies and the hard work, love and care they put into it not just for their business but for their customers. Thanks for bringing us this and all the information on your site. Best of Health, Anna

It is so great to see a company using solar power to produce an organic yogurt that one could feel good about feeding to their families.
