Carolina Farmhouse yogurts are from a small, first- generation farm just north of Durham. The farm, located on 15 acres, is North Carolina’s first farmstead yogurt dairy farm. Cindy Hamrick and her sons started farming together in 2011. Cindy had made a bold decision to leave her corporate career and urban lifestyle. She realized the benefits of producing her own food and how vital local food is to the security of our communities. Her family’s love for cows significantly impacted her desire to build a farmstead yogurt business, and in the fall of 2015, they broke ground on what is now Carolina Farmhouse Dairy.
The farm’s friendly herd of Jersey cows graze on a variety of grasses year-round and are supplemented with organic, locally milled feed. All of the ingredients are certified organic – from the fruit to the cane sugar. Our members are enjoying the Strawberry, Plain and Vanilla yogurts, as well as the Golden Milk, Yoatmeal and Cherry Chia we have had on the menu! Member Sarah S. “I love the Vanilla Yogurt and always make sure it’s in my box when available!”
