Brown Cow is an American brand of yogurt produced in Fort Worth, Texas.[1] The company offers a range of "cream top" yogurt—when the milk used to make yogurt has not been homogenized, a layer of cream rises to the top, forming a rich yogurt cream.[2]

Brown Cow yogurt claims to contain all-natural ingredients, with no artificial ingredients or preservatives,[2] and uses only milk from cows who were not treated with artificial growth hormones.

History[edit]

Brown Cow was founded in 1975, on a small family farm in Ithaca, New York.[1] "Lily" was the name of the original brown cow from whom the company took its name.[1] In 1989, Brown Cow moved to California.[1] Later, in 2003, Stonyfield Farm, which was largely owned by Danone,[3] acquired Brown Cow.[4][5] In 2014 Brown Cow (Danone) closed its plant in Antioch California and moved operations to Fort Worth Texas.
