Nice to know of the relationship between dairy and creamery. It makes the food more meaningful.

I really enjoy supporting organic products that are not only good for you but also taste good. To learn of a company that is so supportive of its own resources and natural resources makes me very pleased. The more we can support such marvelous enterprises the better!

I feel the Eros is doing a great job by forming one relationship with a single quality creamery. Even better, the creamery is operating 100% on solar power. As they stated "Running on solar panels is “equal to taking 76 cars off the road, planting 110 trees or powering over 50 homes". The effort present really speaks to the heart and shows that they are committed to producing a quality organic product, and while also limiting the impact they have on the ecosystem. Eros keep it up!

Going the extra mile - or two - is always great! I am curious enough about the company now to seek their products out next time I am in Whole Foods!

It's nice to see businesses that do the right thing and are also successful! America needs more companies like that instead of those whose sole goal is to increase shareholder wealth and grow grow grow.

Its a wonderful thing when a company such as Eros works to limit their "footprint" by using solar power. I'm looking forward to trying Eros yogurt soon!

I am always happy to support an organic product, and one that runs on solar energy is even better! I have worked in Conservation, as well as trying to live conservatively, and so I shop at Whole Foods and look for products just like Eros. Cudos to all.

Very impressive! I hope that Eros is an example to other companies. I believe a major shift in the way companies operate is in the works and Eros should be proud that they are a 'trail blazer'.

I hadn't heard of Eros yoghurt but now, knowing that it is produced with care for the environment, the workers that produce it and all the lovely cows without which there could be no yoghurt, I plan to try it. I am willing to pay a little more to get a good product which supports my values.

I have not tried this yogurt, but after listening to the video, I am looking forward to doing so.

What a wonderful story. Bice's dairy sounds like she has made some great and smart choices for operating her business.

Every aspect of the Eros Organic production seems carefully crafted to conserve energy and related resources while producing a high quality product. All these efforts are made possible by and implemented by a loyal team of employees dedicated to the business philosophy.

It's great to know that you are using solar. We installed panels on our house in 1981 and were able to shut off the oil burner all summer and part of the spring and fall. We've since moved and we miss those panels! I wish more companies would be as progressive and I will definitely try some of your Greek yogurt!

One of my strongest memories from my trip to Mykonos in the '60s was the taste of yogurt and honey which I would have every day with breakfast. The sun drenched whitewashed buildings and the thick white yogurt were all of a piece. Eros yogurt so easily brings me back to that happy carefree summer. Maybe I'll try it with honey tomorrow.

I will definately try some Eros Yogurt. Kudos to both the creamery and the dairy farm for their efforts!

Very impressive, it's obvious that the two family businesses involved care about their customers, their product, and the health of their communities. I'll have to give the yogurt a try some day, even though I usually make my own from local milk.

Wow~ I'd love to see schools touring this place to get young ones excited about the energy options out there.
