In 1985, we started YoFarm Yogurt Company with the goal of creating a healthy snack by pairing the smoothest European yogurt recipes with New England's farm-fresh dairy products.

Our fans went wild for the smooth, creamy, fruit-filled YoFarm yogurt, but we wanted to make it even better. Later, with a few years of experiments and research behind us, we realized that creamy yogurt and crunchy granola made the perfect combination. This discovery brought about a belief that no yogurt is complete without a tasty topping to give it a satisfying crunch???and YoCrunch was born.

We knew our quality yogurts needed fun and flavorful toppings that families across the country already love, so we reached out to our friends at M&M'S??, Nestle??, Reese's?? Pieces??, OREO??, Butterfinger??, Chips Ahoy!??,Dove??, ,ZONE??, Kellogg's?? and of course our favorite granola bakers. These partners have aided YoCrunch in our mission to offer an amazing yogurt experience that you and your family can enjoy anytime and anyplace.

Our mission will always be to offer an amazing yogurt experience that you and your family can enjoy any time and any place.
