Dreaming Cow is a farmstead dairy company created to provide delicious artisan yogurt that helps to ensure your health, the health of the environment and the health of the farmers and cows who provide the milk.
Spring time is full of life on the dairies. This lucky heifer will be raised and weaned all on pasture. We use no stuffy barns or cramped calf pens.
We use only the highest quality of milk collected from our family’s own grass grazed, Jersey-cross herds. Our cows are never housed in barns and live on expertly managed grasslands year round. The low stress lifestyle, coupled with a natural grass based diet and the calm interaction of our farmers has helped to create milk that is unmatched in quality and in taste which we believe you will immediately be able to recognize and love just as we do.
This Jersey-cross coming to to see what's up! Cows are very curious animals and need abundant stimulation and exercise.
Despite our international influences, Dreaming Cow is located right here on our family farm in Pavo, Georgia. Our family has been grazing dairy cows in South Georgia since 1994, and we take our role as land stewards very seriously. In fact, commissioned studies through UGA and the NRCS have determined that the nitrogen leaching on our farms is much less than a conventional American dairy farm. We also participate in soil erosion prevention programmes and biological pest control case studies in our constant endeavor to care for our land.

We take our packaging and ingredient sourcing very seriously! Our new yogurt cups use 40% less plastic than a conventional 6 oz cup and is held rigid via a recyclable cardboard label. And many of our ingredients are either organic or locally sourced, such as raw organic amber agave nectar or our honey from The Savannah Bee Company.
We now offer 5 flavors for you to enjoy.
Being farmstead means we have complete quality control of our product starting with the soil our grass grows in, to the happiness and wellbeing of our milking girls, and all the way to the freshness of milk we use for our yogurt.

Our milk is pumped over directly from the dairy barn, avoiding any fossil fuel waste for transportation, and our yogurt is made fresh every morning. Our processing ethics are based on our own love of clean, wholesome foods, and we do not use any stabilizers, gums, preservatives, added hormones, or refined sugars. How many yogurts on the shelf can make these claims?

All of our development is done in-house (by us!) to reflect our values as processors and our dedication to our craft and our supporters. In fact, it is our supporter base that determines what flavors are developed and launched based on their feedback we get at various farmer’s markets and through our facebook page.
