Traderspoint Creamery

When Jane Elder Kunz inherited her grandparents' farm, she and her husband Fritz decided to create the first organic dairy in Indiana. As a doctor, Fritz knew that yogurt and cheese made from cows that are grass fed would be packed with healthy nutrients.

Traderspoint Creamery is the best tasting and highest quality yogurt I have purchased from a supermarket - ever... The only other brand that comes close in taste is Fage's wholemilk Greek yogurt. The fact that the milk used to make the yogurt is 100% grass-fed and grass-finished (and organic) is something I haven't found elsewhere. I've tried 3 flavors: Plain - the one I usually purchase when I am in the mood for yogurt; I like plain for health reasons and it's downright scrumptious. Wildberry - Amazing! It's not too sweet at all, nor is loaded with sugar or anything to counteract the health benefits of this cultured, grass-fed yogurt. After trying this, I don't think you will ever be tempted to choose something less nutritious or harmful to your health to satisfy your sweet tooth. This is super rich and decadent and rich. Awesome. Banana - My least favorite of the bunch. Question to Whole Foods: I live in southern California. I see that Traderspoint Creamery has 3 other flavors of yogurt, cheeses (including friggin' grass-fed cottage cheese!!!) and milk! All in a beautiful glass bottle : ) When are we going to see more products in southern California stores...?! Grass-fed is growing in popularity and there will be a massive market that needs to be addressed. Any plans to expand the product line and bring it over here?

@Alex Thanks for your support of Traderspoint Creamery. Since our product offering depends on a number of variables (demand, local sourcing, etc.) I encourage you to reach out to your community's Whole Foods Market directly for a response to your question regarding an increase in grass-fed products. I've included a link below to help identify your store's contact information. A Team Member at your local store will be happy to speak to you about the future of offering more grass-fed products in your store. http://wholefoodsmarket.com/stores/

We're lucky enough to live near Trader's Point Creamery. It really is a nice place. You can drive by or visit any time and see the cows grazing in the various fields. Plenty of room to roam, different grasses planted at different times of year, no crowded conditions whatsoever. Cows allowed to be cows. As a consumer who cares about the welfare of animals, I've watched the milking first hand. Actually, anyone can. There is no "show" but you can stand and watch. They support local farmers and artisans with weekly year round (a pretty radical idea in Indiana winter) farmer's markets on the farm. Alex T - their cheeses are wonderful. If you ever get a hold of their Fleur de Terre cheese or Fromage Blanc, you'll be sold. Also watch for their Orchard Trio yogurt. It's only out once a year ( I can never remember when) and it's delicious!

I love traders point creamery yogurt and would travel from Trumbull CT to Whole Foods in Greenwich when that was the only store in CT. Now I see it has not been stocked in a few weeks in Fairfield and there was one 2 weeks ago in Milford. Is this being discontinued in these stores? Please advise. THanks. Laurie

When is the Torrance store going to have it available again? I have not been able to find it for a month!

@Griselda Since each store selects their products a little differently, the best way to find out when the Torrance store will have the Traderspoint Creamery products is to check with them directly. The link below will take you to their contact information. Hope you get some creaminess soon! http://wholefoodsmarket.com/stores/torrance/

Make your ice cream and milk available in the Whole Foods store in Chapel Hill, NC. From what I see, these products of yours are 100% grassfed, a true rarity. We buy your yogurt regularly. Please sell raw 100% grassfed organic cheese here too. I don't think you already make that, but it's a great idea too. Organic Valley's raw cheese here is not 100% grassfed.

Traders Point Creamery, I also suggest you make 100% grassfed organic greek yogurt. I don't think any such product currently even sells in the US, and it would be a huge success. I am jealous of the people who live near the Traderspoint Creamery farm! It should be easy to get hold of healthy products like this, but it is not. Even Whole Foods is about 20 minutes driving from my place, and the Chapel Hill, NC one doesn't even have all the products I want (100% grassfed organic chocolate milk and 100% grassfed organic ice cream at the Chapel Hill Store). The people who live near the farm are probably paying less for their products than people who pick up inferior products at the supermarket. And people say how important it is to support local farms, but if local farms aren't making the highest quality products, than why should I? I like stamps and standards on my food - organic, 100% grassfed, etc. It is impossible to find a farm in NC that sells dairy that is organic AND 100% grassfed.

Traderspoint Creamery Whole Milk Yogurt is the best yogurt I've ever taste. I eat yogurt (drink in this case) for health reason. Since I am diabetic, I can only have yogurt with no or very little sugar in it. Unfortunately, the majority on the shelves are pack with sugar. I am so happy that I finally find one that has very little sugar and so delicious as Traderspoint Creamery's.

@LEAH - Since we do not manufacture this product, it would be best to get in touch with the vendor directly. You can reach out to them on their website at http://www.tpforganics.com/.

I live in Northwest Ohio I visited the Hilton at Indianapolis downtown. Beautiful facility. I had a mixed berry yogurt there it was wonderful . So I called them and ask them what type yogurt it was and they told me traders point. So I would like to know if I can get your yogurt in the Northwest Ohio area? Let me know. Thank you

@JACKIE - We are decentralized as a company and our products vary between stores and regions. Unfortunately I do not have a database of products available at each store. Check with the store you plan to shop with in Ohio and they can see if this is available in their region!

I have been following Dr. Ray Peat diet suggestions and realized Traderspoint Creamery can accommodate all of the best dairy products I need at Whole Food. Thank You for providing the best in a product. OH! Hope You sell your IceCream at Whole Food. Larry

i originally was attracted to your yogurt because of the glass container after I realized Whole Foods was not selling my kefir anymore. When I got home I realized it was yogurt. I love it is grass fed cows. How does that work in the winter? Honestly, it was to creamy for me. That said I thought I bought kefir and was surprised not to have that tart taste I have grown to love. As the other poster mentioned I would love to see a yogurt with a little bite. I probably won't buy the yogurt again as it gets really thick when I add my ground flaxseed and I miss the tart taste. But, I did see you have a milk line and will give it a try. Grass fed is best! Thank you

I drove all the way to Whole Foods in Marlton, Nj and after searching for Traderpoint yogurt the store attendant told me that this WF's did not carry it. You should not put products and videos on your web site it you do not carry these products at your stores. Very disappointed.

@JACK - I'm so sorry about that. Since we are decentralized as a company, our products will differ between locations. I can definitely pass along this feedback to our content team to make sure they mention that not all products are available at every store.
