Buffalo roam for this yogurt

Gotta Try It

There's buffalo in that yogurt. Water buffalo. The horned, droopy-eared animals often seen in pictures of India and Southeast Asia.

Except these water buffalo are grazing in the green hills of Vermont, producing rich, white milk for Woodstock Yogurt and other products at Star Hill Dairy, the first water buffalo dairy in the United States. Water buffalo yogurt is more firm and fluffy than ordinary cow's milk yogurt. It's also higher in protein, fat and calcium, but lower in cholesterol.

Woodstock Yogurt is available in a dozen flavors, including maple, cappuccino and chai, but my favorite is the tangy black currant. The yogurt ($2.39 per 6 ounces) and Star Hill water buffalo mozzarella cheese are available at the Party Source in Bellevue and Dorothy Lane Market in Springboro.
