I lived here four years before I stopped into Seven Stars Farm in Phoenixville, Chester County. I had driven past it hundreds of times, and I noticed a small OPEN sign on the door of the main building, but I never took the time to find out what it was about until last fall, when I finally stopped, got out of my car, and wandered inside. It isn’t much of a storefront, but they sell the most delicious yogurt I think I’ve ever tasted.
Seven Stars Farm is a 350 acre certified Biodynamic dairy farm located in northern Chester County, PA. We use the milk from our Jersey and Jersey crossed herd to produce Seven Stars Organic Yogurt. Our yogurt is sold via natural foods distributors throughout the eastern United States. It is available in five 32oz. flavors: Whole Milk Plain, Maple and Vanilla; and Low-Fat Plain and Maple. Organic maple syrup, organic vanilla extract and cultures are the only additional ingredients added to our unhomogenized, pasteurized milk. We produce an old-fashioned, European-style yogurt that isn’t for everyone. But for those of us who love it, it can be quite addictive!
You can purchase their yogurt by the case at the farm, although they keep rather irregular hours — Monday through Friday, 8am to 11:30am and 2:30pm to 4:30pm, and Saturdays from 8am to 11:30am.
You can also purchase their yogurt at Kimberton Whole Foods and other whole food distributors.
