We offer this product because great tasting goat yogurt is difficult to find. Grass-fed goat yogurt is even more rare! No sugar added and naturally lactose free. We love our yogurt and want to share it with you! There are so many ways to enjoy it. Katie's favourite use of summer yogurt is to mix yogurt with a good quality Mango juice for a Mango Lassi, a refreshing summer meal or nutritious drink anytime.

What are the ingredients in your yogurt?

Our yogurt ingredients are simple, whole milk and yogurt cultures. That’s it!

Is there any sugar added?

We do not add any sugar to our yogurt or anything else! The bacterial cultures turn milk into yogurt by consuming the lactose and changing it into lactic acid. The increased acidity causes the milk proteins to join together and form a curd that is yogurt. This consumption of lactose makes our yogurt great for those who are lactose sensitive.

What does it taste like?

It tastes great! A clean, fresh, slightly acidic flavour with no goat-y aftertaste. The texture is also smooth and not stringy at all like other goat yogurts on the market.

Why is the texture thinner than I am used to?

From the end of May to September our yogurt is thinner than what most people are used to. We could thicken in by adding milk solids, gelatin, or by straining some of the goodness out, but these practices do not align with our values of food production. Our clients who consume yogurt regularly now enjoy the change in texture throughout the year. Our yogurt IS super thick in the spring, fall and winter months.

How can I use it?

Yogurt is super versatile! Use it in smoothies, on cereal, fruit, spicy curry dishes, pancakes, and pie. Make sauces, dips and dressings with it. Tzatziki anyone? Eat it plain in a bowl with a spoon or make a refreshing summer drink by combining our yogurt in a glass with real 100% fruit juice; like a Mango Lassi!

What is the liquid on the top?

The liquid on top is whey that separates from the yogurt “curd”. You can strain it off and use it to bake or in your smoothie or cereal. Mix it back in or just ignore it. It is full of healthy microbes, proteins and hydration.

Can I add sweetener or sugar to it?

Yes! We love adding maple syrup or fruit jams. Some honeys pair well with our yogurt and others do not. We recommend a taste test before adding honey to a large quantity of yogurt. Some people add stevia. The best secret we learned is to add a small amount of vanilla extract to your yogurt. The vanilla brings out the natural sweetness often making it unnecessary to add sugar of any kind AND the vanilla will accentuate whatever sweetener you add.

How do I make it thicker?

If you would like to thicken your yogurt to make a dip like Tzatziki or a dessert topping (this yogurt makes a great substitute for whipping cream) Line a colander with a clean tea towel. (no perfumed laundry detergents residue) Pour in your yogurt and let it drip over a bowl at room temperature. Two to four hours is usually sufficient. The longer it hangs the thicker it gets. It will thicken up even more when at a cooler temperature back in the fridge.

How do I keep it?

Keep yogurt in your refrigerator. Between 1 and 4 degrees Celsius is ideal and will give the longest shelf life. The door of your fridge can get warm when opening and closing the door. The main body of your fridge is the better place to keep your yogurt.

How long does it last?

Yogurt lasts for weeks, even months when kept in the refrigerator between 1- and 4-degrees C. We put a six-week date on our yogurt, you can get several weeks past our best before date if you keep it cold!

What some of our clients have shared about River's Edge yogurt:

Your yogurt has made my cholesterol scores better! I am down to the acceptable level according to my doctor. I have been working to get my cholesterol scores better by exercising and cutting out unhealthy fats and reducing animal products. Nothing I did helped. I had given up. After I started on your yogurt my scores improved dramatically! My doctor asked me what I did, the only thing I changed was replacing my regular yogurt from the grocery store with River’s Edge yogurt. I am convinced your yogurt has improved my health.

L.N. Meaford, ON

We had three patients in our Nursing and Retirement Facility that had severe bed sores that would not heal. One of these patients had sores for several years. We heard that goat yogurt may help so we did a trial and substituted their regular cow dairy yogurt with River’s Edge Goat yogurt. We could not believe our eyes when in less than a week the bed sores started to heal! After the trial, River’s Edge donated yogurt to our patient who had suffered the most with bed sores until they passed away. River’s Edge yogurt brought an improved quality of life to three of our precious patients. We are grateful for the food they produce.
