Press Release
ZIONSVILLE, Ind.–Traders Point Creamery, a family-owned, organic artisan dairy, announced today that its European-style, award-winning yogurts, in classic 32 oz. glass bottles, are now available in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Washington, DC. Traders Point whole milk plain yogurt won the American Cheese Society’s prestigious First Place Awards in both 2005 and 2006, and the Second Place Award in 2007. With the addition of pure, organic fruit purees, it is also available in a variety of flavors.
Traders Point Creamery all natural, certified organic yogurts are made from grass-fed milk, contain no artificial ingredients, coloring, flavors, preservatives or stabilizers, and are made with live, active yogurt cultures which offer probiotic health benefits. Since Traders Point cows are raised exclusively on pasture and eat the rich, carefully cultivated greens, their milk acquires more nutrients, including omega-3 fatty acids, conjugated linoleic acids (CLAs), beta-carotene and vitamins A and E, than organic milk produced using standard feeds.
“People are starting to really look at where their food comes from, and how it was raised,” said Jane Elder Kunz, who owns the family farm and Creamery with her husband, Dr. Peter Kunz. “Grass-fed milk is rare these days, but it’s worth the extra effort because we’re passionate about producing truly healthful food. And now we use this milk to make a whole new style of delicious dairy products, based on centuries-old traditional Dutch recipes.”
The Creamery is managed by an artisan cheese maker who hails from the dairy region of Holland. His European training and tastes are reflected in the products, which have a distinctly unique fresh taste and silky texture. These pourable yogurts provide a healthy, delicious snack, and make an elegant dessert served with fresh fruit and a sprig of mint. They also add flavor and body poured on breakfast cereals and granola, or can be frozen into yogurt pops!
In addition to plain yogurt, the company also offers a low-fat vanilla yogurt, and organic fresh fruit purees are added to make flavors such as Wildberry (a combination of raspberry, blackberry & acai berry); Orchard Trio (made of pear, peach, and acerola cherry), Banana-Mango, and other seasonal favorites. Traders Point Creamery yogurts are sold through select supermarkets, gourmet shops, and natural and organic food markets at a suggested retail price of $6.49 per 32 oz. glass bottle.
Traders Point organic, grass-fed, unhomogenized chocolate milk is also available from select East Coast retailers, as is Fleur de la Terre, the company’s natural-rind, aged cheese which was awarded First Place for Farmstead Aged Cheeses at the American Cheese Society’s 24th Annual conference earlier this month.
About Traders Point Creamery

The company produces pure, fresh, unhomogenized whole milk, chocolate milk, plain, vanilla and fruit yogurts, and ice cream.

Established in 2003, the Creamery is housed in a restored 19th-century hand-hewn barn, on a family farm which is certified organic by the USDA. The Traders Point herd of Brown Swiss cows spends all of its time roaming free on pastures, and never receives antibiotics or synthetic growth hormones. Traders Point Creamery is very unique in that its dairy products are made from grass-fed organic milk, which provides a rich, natural source of omega-3 fatty acids and CLAs (conjugated linoleic acids). Synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides are never used on the land.
The company founders believe in “nourishing the land that nourishes us all.” This means preserving the family farm and continuing their grandparents’ legacy of sensible, sustainable, low-input agriculture. Their mission is to farm in harmony with the land and animals; produce the most nutritious and healthful products possible; and encourage education of sustainable farming and nutrition.

About Ross Reller

I am pleased you have expressed interest in learning more about the historic Traders Point area in Indianapolis, Indiana. From 1980 to 1982 I was employed in the PR department at Conner Prairie Museum in Hamilton County. There I learned about William Conner, an important figure in Indiana's pioneer days. A decade later I became interested in the history of the Traders Point area and was surprised to learn that William Conner had been the first land owner in the area. In 1823 he acquired, through the Federal land office in Brookville, a patent for an 80 acre tract carved by Eagle Creek and an Indian trail that was about to be named the first toll roadway through the township (Lafayette Road). Thirty years later a village took shape within this tract. A grain mill on the creek, houses, churches, stores, restaurants, and two gas stations would take shape here in the creek valley hamlet of Traders Point. By 1962 all improvements (except a farmer's co-op) had been removed by the Indianapolis Flood Control Board to make way for Interstate 65 and a new reservoir. This blog is dedicated to preserving evidence of this historic area but I will occasionally use it to discuss related topics. To activate this follow, simply click the confirm button below. If you don't want to follow, ignore this message and we'll never bother you again. I am also a member of the Old Pleasant Hill Cemetery, a non profit association still selling burial plots for those who would like to spend all eternity in Traders Point, and I am an officer in the Pike Township Historical Society and the Traders Point Association of Neighborhoods.
