Our Story

Silly Cows are just part of the story...

While we’re in the specialty foods business, our story is one of pioneering, persistence and of passion for offering premium-quality products that meet our highest standard of excellence.

In 1988, we purchased a small, local Vermont company that made three chocolate sauces. Since then, we have worked hard to expand the Sillycow Farms brand of award winning Hot Chocolate beverages. We package 13 different flavors of Hot Chocolate in nostalgic glass bottles, milk tins and 1 oz. packets, convenient for individual servings.

Now, nearly 30 years later, our products are sold in small grocery stores, major 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 may think is silly.  We use Only the Finest Real Ingredients …. all of which you can spell and pronounce.

It’s our commitment to creating the best-tasting Hot Chocolate beverages that drives us to source our ingredients that are all Non-GMO and Certified Gluten Free. They have NO corn or high fructose syrup solids; are Nut and Peanut Free; Non-Dairy; have NO Trans fats, NO added sodium, NO artificial flavors or sweeteners, NO artificial growth hormones (rBST) and are Certified Fair Trade in 6 flavors.

Our desire is to introduce Sillycow Farms Hot Chocolate to as many consumers as possible, so that everyone can enjoy our decadently delicious and comforting chocolate beverages. Our tradition of quality and integrity may seem silly to some, but that's what we know and believe in. Call us Silly, but we like it that way....and think you will too.
