Food find: Atlanta Fresh yogurt

posted on September 15, 2009 at 5:00 am
I am a picky customer when it comes to yogurt; it has to be really good for me to eat it in lieu of my beloved eggs (I f-ing adore eggs) for breakfast. Good yogurt is a hard thing to come by after you’ve been spoiled by the real French yogurts I’ve had in Paris. Nothing comes close. You are going to think I am crazy, but breakfast via hotel room service is one of my favorite things to eat in France. Seriously. I wake up as excited as a kid on their birthday. Nothing starts the day off right like a tray filled with amazing French yogurt packaged in clay pots, freshly baked croissants, steamed whole milk and a pot of strong coffee. Pure bliss. We are actually going to Paris for our honeymoon and it can’t come soon enough. But I digress. Back to the topic at hand: yogurt.
On my weekly visit to Star and The Local Farmstand, I spotted these yogurts in the case while I was grabbing some dairy stuffs. I immediately asked Tim, the cheesemonger, what the story was behind this local company and he launched into the story behind Atlanta Fresh without hesitation. Now, Tim’s a cool customer so you better pay attention when he gets excited about something. All I needed to hear was that Atlanta Fresh’s Greek yogurt is non-fat and made with milk from Johnston Family Farm–I adore their milk. You must immediately buy it if you come across it.
The yogurt is also made with whole or 2% milk if you like a little fat. But the diverse assortment if flavors–Port Wine and Cherry, Wildflower Honey and others–are definitely more exciting than any of the other non-fat yogurts I’ve eaten. I also like that the products hit the shelves within days of being produced. You can’t deny the appeal of product with such a short trip from “farm” to table.

Star also stocks the company’s mozzarella, but I was more interested in this stuff: The locally-made creme fraiche.

I can’t justify using this as I’m trying to watch the old wedding waistline. But someone has to buy it and tell me how it is. I’m waiting.

    You can also buy the Johnston milk and the Atlanta Fresh Yogurt at Sawicki's in Decatur. I make cheese every week (and a gallon of yogurt) w/ the Johnston milk and it's FABULOUS. I absolutely love their milk.

    They have it Whole Foods in Buckhead now – they were giving out samples yesterday. Though it is pricey (I think it was $2.50 for a 65 oz container!) it is absolutely delicious. I just had a container of fat-free plain and it was delightful.

    … oops, that was meant to be $2.50 for 6 oz, not 65 oz!
