Our Story

Silly Cows are just part of the story...

While we’re in the specialty foods business, ours is a story of pioneering, persistence, and a passion for offering quality products that meet our highest standard of excellent.

In 1988, we purchased a small, local Vermont company with three chocolate sauces and a client base of about a dozen good customers. Since then, we have worked hard to expand the Sillycow Farms brand of award winning Hot Chocolate beverages. We package 12 different flavors of Hot Chocolate in glass bottles, milk tins and packets, convenient for individual servings.

Now, over 28 years later, our products are sold in supermarkets, natural food stores and specialty retail stores across the country. We even sell Sillycow Farms Hot Chocolate products to customers in the Far East and Europe. But we have never lost our focus on what makes us special.

At Sillycow Farms, we do things the natural way, which some might think is silly.  We start with Only the Finest Real Ingredients .… all of which you can spell and pronounce.

It’s our commitment to creating the finest Hot Chocolate beverages that drives us to source our ingredients that are all Gluten Free and have NO corn or high fructose syrup solids. They are also Nut and Peanut Free; Non-GMO; have NO Trans fats, NO added sodium, NO artificial flavors or sweeteners, NO artificial growth hormones (rBST) and are Certified Fair Trade in 7 flavors.

It may be silly to carry on our tradition of quality and integrity, but that's the only way we know. Call us Silly, but we like it that way....and think you will too.
