Stephanie and Hayley Painter of Painterland Farms, a fourth-generation, family-run regenerative dairy farm, unveiled their line of Painterland Sisters Organic Skyr Yogurt. Skyr (pronounced “skeer”) is a thicker, creamier Icelandic-style organic yogurt that is lactose-free, rich in probiotics and high in protein, the company says.
Produced in Westfield, Pa., the skyr is made from organic whole milk and sweetened naturally using fruits and cane sugar. Painterland Sisters Organic Skyr Yogurt is available in 5.3-ounce single-serve cups in five flavors: Plain, Blueberry Lemon, Strawberry, Vanilla Bean and Meadow Berry.
“My sister and I both have very active lifestyles and we wanted a healthy snack that gave us the energy we need throughout the day, was rich in protein and calcium and convenient for on-the-go people,” says Painterland Sisters co-founder Hayley Painter. “Skyr checks off all the boxes, with the added benefit that it’s delicious.”
The sisters point out that they are committed to transparency in their clean, recognizable ingredients, even sourcing all of their organic milk from fellow Pennsylvania family farms. Painterland Farms is also open about their regenerative farming practices and how they put the land first while going above and beyond USDA Certified Organic requirements. From chemical-free fertilizers and weed removal to animals that graze freely on open pastures, they carefully think through every action and its impact on food and the environment.
“We both grew up on our family farm and feel deeply connected to the land and the animals. As farmers, we now have the opportunity to take control of our own destiny by connecting directly with consumers,” added co-founder Stephanie Painter. “Painterland Sisters is connecting consumers with a vibrant, sustainable and meaningful food system. We aim to empower them with honest and convenient dairy products that support our family’s fourth-generation dairy farm.”
