Well, they say "happy cows come from California" and I bet that these are some of the happiest cows in the whole state. I am also from California and may have to check out this farm next time I am home at my Grandfather lives in Sonoma Co. Thanks fro letting us know the whole story.

I'm impressed with the efforts that Eros Organic Greek Yogurt makes to conserve resources in its creamery... such as using solar power wherever possible. More companies need to follow suit.

I think its awesome! I love that they have been in business since the 60s and their milk supplier since the 1920s. I also love that they use solar power exclusively. GREAT company from what this says!

Being a skeptic, due to so much abuse and mistreatment of animals and our environment, and as a result our food source, it was good to see what appears to be an innovative and wonderful way to produce yogurt. I would like to believe, however, that those calves that you show have a right to their mothers, and are not just torn away from them, as is done in factory farming.

I couldn't agree with the past comments more. Any business that makes an effort to be sustainable is worth supporting!

Thanks Jennifer for the wonderful product and especially for the care of our natural resources, water, and energy. I wish all businesses could care and minimize their impact on the environment we are all living in.

It's great to see a company like Eros that takes care of its employees, humans and animals alike. By Eros keeping one foot in the past with their farming practices they are able to move forward and find alternative power sources, thus reducing the carbon footprint for future generations. I applaud Eros and their initiatives. More companies should take note of their humane treatment of animals while maintaining carbon footprint reducing practices. This is definitely a company that I would support by purchasing their products. Way to go Eros!

I hate to rain on everyone's parade, but the yogurt is not Greek style at all. I'm speaking of the plain 2% as I don't eat flavored yogurts ordinarily. The goopy texture is not Greek style, which is strained. And it has a strange flavor. I won't be purchasing it again.

I have recently tried this Greek yogurt after hearing about it for a long time. It is soooo......deliscious and much prefer the flavor to regular yogurt. Plus the texture is not as runny, which I prefer. It is also a perfect substitute for sour cream and much healthier. Thanks for the effort to produce an excellent product.

I have just started eating Greek yogurt specifically for the calcium value. I was literally looking at all of the brands Whole Foods had to offer and Eros yogurt had the most calcium. I had never heard of this brand before, but the yogurt is so delicious. Extremely smooth and not sour. Especially wonderful is the work ethic you have incorporated. Thank you.

Here's the latest on the conference's top players who are projected to go from playing on Saturdays to starring on Sundays. 1. LB Jarvis Jones, 6-3, 241, Georgia Why he has the top spot: Jones' battle with an ankle injury hasn't changed his status as the top overall draft prospect in the SEC. He missed his second full game due to the injury in the Bulldogs' 29-24 win over Kentucky on Saturday. Still, Jones remains a versatile defender who can rush the pass or drop into coverage. He'll need a strong second half of the season to maintain his lofty draft status. Season stats (five games): 36 tackles, 5.5 sacks, 9.5 TFLs, 3 forced fumbles, 15 QB hurries, INT. Player ranking: Jones remains fifth overall, and he is the second-highest outside linebacker in CBSSports.com's latest player rankings. Up next: The Bulldogs' next game is against Florida. Jones returned to practice on Monday and is expected to play. Georgia will need him against a Florida team that averages 213 yards per game on the ground. 2. QB Tyler Wilson, 6-3, 220, Arkansas Why he has the second spot: After a slow start for Wilson and the Razorbacks, the senior QB has turned it around in the last few weeks before having a bye last weekend. He'll have a chance to solidify his status as a first-round pick with games against Mississippi State, LSU and South Carolina still on the schedule. Season stats (six games): 124 of 205 (60.5 percent) for 1,957 yards, 14 TDs, 5 INTs. Player ranking: Wilson is ranked as the No. 12 overall prospect and is the third-highest ranked QB in CBSSports.com's latest player rankings. Up next: The Razorbacks play Ole Miss this weekend. The Rebels are ranked No. 65 nationally in scoring defense, so Wilson should have a chance to put some good numbers up. <a href="http://youtu.be/Lnc_p5McaZA/">MLB</a>

Whole Foods in Fresno, Ca. is no longer carrying Eros I really like it and would like to order it myself, is that a possibility?

@BEVERLY - Sorry to hear this. Were you able to ask the store why they are no longer carrying this? Unfortunately, we do not offer shipping of perishable items. It's possible that you can find an online retailer that is willing to ship.

I normally hate Greek Yogurt... I tried so many times to like it. But the texture, the smell, the taste, the after-taste, I hated it all. I bought Eros to give to my daughter and tried a taste. Oh my god, it was SOOOOO GOOD!!!!! It's a miracle, and organic, and human, and delicious. Did I say it was delicious? Thank you for making this!!! I hope you just make more flavors since I'll be buying a ton of this stuff :)

We love Eros yogurt, but it has been unavailable at our local Whole Foods lately. Hoping that the product has not been discontinued!
