SuperNatural Flavor: Organic Farming

Spring weather just arrived in Kalona, Iowa – home base to our creamery and many of the small, family farms that provide the milk for Kalona SuperNatural products. And, just like most of us delight in the first fresh produce from our gardens and farmer’s markets in the spring, cows are excited to go back to the new green grass in the pasture.

A SuperNatural Culture: What Makes our Yogurt Different

When we rebranded all of our products to Kalona SuperNatural, we received tons of email from fans of Cultural Revolution, our original yogurt brand. They were worried that their yogurt – so different from any other on the shelves – had disappeared. We knew our product was unique in the United States, but had no idea it had garnered so many fans in its short time on the market.

The New Kalona SuperNatural Website: Beyond Ordinary

Welcome to our new website! Over the years, we have learned that we don’t need focus groups and a whole lot of market research, because our customers always find a way to tell us what’s on their mind. They tell us when they can’t find a flavor of yogurt, or when they were overjoyed after tasting our chocolate milk for the first time. They tell us what we are doing right, and what we can do better. As a small company, we are in a great position to listen, react and improve our products and our company.

SuperNatural Ricotta Cheese

Want to go SuperNatural™ with your recipes that call for ricotta cheese? Making it from scratch is easier than you think, and (of course) we think our organic buttermilk lends an amazing flavor that you won’t get from other recipes that use vinegar to culture the mixture.

Cucumber Yogurt with Garlic and Dill

This recipe comes from a fantastic cookbook, Garlic, Garlic, Garlic by Linda and Fred Griffith – a simple and savory treat for people trying to get more yogurt into their diets.

Chocolate Milk: The SuperNatural Sports Drink

As you may imagine, there are many benefits to working with Kalona SuperNatural™, including tasting and tasting and tasting the great products we produce. The first one I ever tried was the infamous chocolate milk. It was like drinking a milkshake out of the bottle. But, all good things in moderation – and in all honesty, I treated chocolate milk as a treat.

What’s in a name?

We started our company in 2005 in Kalona, Iowa—home to several small farms, owned and managed by Amish and Mennonite families. Many of these farmers have rejected modern conveniences such as electricity or automobiles, and none use chemicals, chemical fertilizers, herbicides, or pesticides on their farms. They live and work on their land, creating a sustainable lifestyle that is a most natural fit for the products we produce.

Onion Dip

Unfortunately, some of the tasty dips you find in the store are chock full of processed ingredients that compromise the flavor of all the dairy goodness. And thus began my search for a tasty onion dip recipe that let the sour cream shine through.
